Meet Dr. Manoj Mehta

January 19th, 2021 | Uncategorized

Dr. Manoj Mehta is a board-certified doctor in internal medicine and gastroenterology who has been in practice for twenty-five years. He opened the Endoscopy Center of the North Shore in Wilmette, IL five years ago. His desire to open his own endoscopy center was about creating a better experience for his patients whose procedures do not require being performed in a hospital. Dr. Mehta believes that hospitals are the right place for those who are sick, but for those only needing a routine procedure, they are fraught with issues.

While Dr. Mehta knew opening his own endoscopy center was the right path, he knew that it was a process. “As with any entrepreneurial venture, especially one competing with an established powerhouse like the healthcare systems found locally, there is risk” says Dr. Mehta. He did some research, but it wasn’t until he talked to Healthcare Strategy Consultant, Rock Rockett of Rockett Healthcare that he decided to take the plunge.

Even though building the space for his Endoscopy center took longer than planned, Dr. Mehta was happy he did. “Like anything done right, it costs more and takes longer than planned.” The building of his center started in October and by April, he was performing procedures. Dr. Mehta currently consults with his patients, performs their procedures and conducts follow up visits at his center.

He admits that opening his own center wasn’t an easy process, but it was worth it. He muses about the process, “There’s an old joke, ‘why is divorce so expensive? Because it’s worth it.’ Divorce yourself from the bad relationship you are in with the hospital, and create your own happiness.” His patients are also happy. They have commented how efficient, clean and modern everything is. He advises those wanting to do this to work with a knowledgeable consultant like Rock Rockett who understands the ins and outs.

“Trust Rock to manage the development of your center. He’s always done great work.”
