About Us

Respacare is a state-of-the-art pulmonary practice in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The board-certified doctors specialize in all aspects of pulmonary care, sleep medicine, and critical care medicine.

The experienced and compassionate pulmonologists treat patients 18 and older and commit themselves to providing professional care and a great bedside manner. Patients aren’t stuck with long waits for an appointment, yet each patient enjoys unrushed appointments with an opportunity to ask questions about their diagnosis and treatment plan.

In addition to providing treatment for breathing disorders such as emphysema and bronchitis, pulmonary rehabilitation, and pulmonary stress tests, patients visit Respacare for daytime sleepiness, insomnia, sleep apnea, and other sleep disorders. For individuals who suffer from allergies, Respacare offers allergy testing and treatments.

For a good night’s sleep, to receive allergy testing or treatment, or find out the cause of breathing problems, call Respacare or use the online booking tool to schedule an appointment today.


At Respacare, we have Board Certified Sleep Physicians that would like to offer sleep consults to patients who are not able to travel the distance or take time off of work for a sleep consult. We provide virtual telehealth visits and in-home sleep monitoring for patients outside our business region.

Nehal L. Mehta, MD | Prashant B. Patel, MD

Partners in Somerset County’s largest pulmonary and sleep medicine practice, Drs. Nehal Mehta and Prashant Patel deliver exceptional care that includes taking as much time as needed with patients to address their concerns, discuss
treatment and educate them about preventative measures. Board certified in pul- monary, sleep and critical care medicine, the doctors are proud of relationships
they have established with patients, many of whom refer family members. Drs. Mehta and Patel, and an empathetic staff,
use the latest technology to treat breathing and chest disorders and sleep-re- lated issues. For the diagnosis of sleep apnea, they provide home sleep studies,
and they are the only sleep medicine practice in the area that fabricates an oral appliance to treat the condition. They also are one of the few groups to offer an in-office pulmonary rehabilitation program for reconditioning patients with lung disease. In addition, they provide full office-based allergy testing and sublingual immunotherapy.
