Patient Reviews

May 02, 2017
I'm very comfortable with Dr Mendez. He's very patient and through.
May 02, 2017
Dr. Mendez is a must desired physician. I understand because I do not want to see any other doctor. I've had to wait no less than a week to see him. It would be nicer to see him sooner. My physical is in June/July.
April 28, 2017
Dr. Mendez has been our family physician for many years. He always listens and explains everything clearly so We can understand. We were not able to see him for about 5 years due to an insurance change, so we are happy to be back
April 28, 2017
Always able to reach when questions arise. Understand special needs. Works with me.
April 27, 2017
Dr Mendez was very knowledgeable and calming.
April 27, 2017
Dr. Alexander and his staff are very caring, friendly and professional. They were also very thorough and efficient. I was in and out within one hour and still had time to share my concerns and go over all my test results. I never felt rushed or ignored.

This doctor is very knowledgeable and puts your mind at ease with any of your concerns. He is very easy to talk to and makes the visit comfortable even when you don't feel well.

Friendly informative staff. I have noticed a more patient-centered emphasis in the front office as well as a more helpful attitude as compared to prior years.

I have in the past and will continue to refer Dr. Alexander Mendez to my family and friends. He has always given me and my family excellent care. Thank you very much.
April 10, 2017
I have been with my PCP for many years. I feel very comfortable addressing any issues I have. I only see him once a year for my physical (thank goodness) but I appreciate his time and comments to me. I also would like to commend the nurses for being very professional and polite. I love interacting with anybody at my Doctor's office. And.....I love the online check-in... :-)

February 24, 2017
Dr. Mendez is always attentive and informed. His two nurses are never abrasive, but always compassionate and easy to communicate with. They listen to, and hear, me. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate their care of myself and my family.

Muy recomendable.
November 14, 2016
There was a thorough report given to me on the bloodwork done a week earlier, another appointment was made for three weeks to remove moles I was concerned about and several he noticed and all was handled by the nurse before leaving the exam room.
November 08, 2016
Dr. Mendez is careful to listen to me. He is careful to educate me. He is careful and conservative when evaluating treatment options. He has my best interests in mind. While he educates me, he does not make me feel bad about those lifestyle changes I have difficulty in implementing. That is a fine line to walk and he does it well.
November 08, 2016
