Dr. Mendez is always very friendly, personable, and makes me feel very comfortable. I can talk to him about any concerns and always listens, carefully, and takes the time to respond and explain to me, in a very understanding manner. He never makes me feel rushed and always asks if I have any questions. I always leave my appointments with him feeling good.

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.

October 24, 2017
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.
