Dr. Mendez is the best doctor I have had since I started with PIH. I hate to say to much good about him as, every time my wife and I find a good doctor, they are moved or move on.

I would tell anyone looking for a doctor that Dr. Mendez is very knowledgeable, approachable and truly cares for his patients. His staff is excellent at everything from check-in to blood draws. You can really tell that they work as a team and all enjoy what they do. The quality shows.

I think that the La Mirada Family Group is one of the BEST. The doctors, nurses and staff are very professional and friendly. They show concern for you as a person, not just a patient. Dr. Mendez is one of the finest doctors I have ever had.

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.

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
