Care team with Reena Mehta, PA-C.


Patients Say:

“I was extremely pleased with Dr. Smith and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.”

Dr. Smith Says:

“The best part of being a gastroenterologist with Tryon Medical Partners is our renewed emphasis on improving our patient relationships. I am a gastroenterologist because I enjoy helping patients with a wide variety of intestinal disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease, GERD, irritable bowel syndrome and metabolic disorders, among others. It is a great reward to realize we are able to help patients understand and treat their condition. I love the collaboration among patients, other doctors, physician assistants and healthcare providers as we strive to provide a team approach that consistently exceeds our patient’s expectations.

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four sons in a variety of activities, including fishing, golf and travel. I assure you, there is never a dull moment. We love and are committed to the greater Charlotte community.”
