Dr. Sonya Mehta, a rheumatologist, is now seeing patients at Essentia Health-South University Clinic in Fargo.

“I have always loved immunology and in the practice of rheumatology, I am able to see first-hand how immunological abnormalities translated into clinical disease states,” shares Dr. Mehta. “I also enjoy the fact that I must retain and use my general medical knowledge, as autoimmune diseases often present with multi-organ involvement and systemic manifestations.”

Dr. Mehta received her medical education at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr. Mehta completed her residency in internal medicine and her fellowship in rheumatology at NYU Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y.  and is board certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Looking forward to practicing at Essentia Health, Dr. Mehta assures patients, “I will be an advocate for you and your health, and work with you to provide the best possible health care outcomes.”
