Dr. Mendez is my family doctor and in my opinion, one of the BEST! He cares for my health needs and is always clear as to what should be done about a certain situation. One a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 deserving a 5 Star rating, Dr. Mendez wins hands down.

Dr. Mendez really made an effort to get to know me and my medical history. This is my first time having my PCP through PIH, and it's already a stark difference from previous doctors. Dr. Mendez helped me get referrals for concerns, while also putting me at ease. I've already recommended him to friends who are new to the area.

Yes, you may. I am happy with things the way they are with Dr. Mendez. It took me awhile to get to know Dr. Mendez; I wasn't sure it would be a good fit. But now after a number of years getting to know him, I feel he is very caring and helpful each time I visit him. I'm thankful for his service, as well as the great nurses and other workers in his office. They are all very friendly.
