After coming to the United States he was awarded a research grant by the American Heart Association (New Jersey Affiliates). He has been a member of the Cardiology faculty at Mount Sinai Hospital since 1992 and Director of the Electrophysiology Laboratory and arrhythmia section for 8 years. His clinical interests include catheter ablations for management of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. His current research interests include prevention and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias in cardiac sarcoidosis. His is board certified in Medicine, Cardiology and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. He is a member of the Heart Rhythm Society and Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. He has authored more than 100 publications and has lectured widely.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Below are financial relationships with industry reported by Dr. Mehta during 2017 and/or 2018. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Industry-Sponsored Lectures: MSSM faculty occasionally give lectures at events sponsored by industry, but only if the events are free of any marketing purpose
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
