He chose to specialize in family medicine because he appreciates seeing entire families. “Young parents that I knew as children are now bringing in their own children as patients.” Dr. Mendez enjoys helping his patients by listening and caring for them to his best capabilities.

Dr Mendez is the best
December 23, 2021
Excellent doctor who took the time to explain my treatment.
December 23, 2021
Dr Mendez and all his staff are very friendly and caring. I receive utmost care. I have and will keep recommending my doctor to my family and friends. Thank you.
December 21, 2021
Recommending providers to family and friends is, honestly, something I just don't do. But if I did, it would be Dr. Mendez & staff, for sure.
December 21, 2021
Wonderful experience as always. The wait was a little longer than usual but it's the holidays and they did apologize for the wait. Besides I would rather wait a little longer and have excellent care. So grateful for the whole staff. They do care about their patients. And Dr. Mendez is best....he can never retire!

Dr. Mendez is great. I trust him completely with my health care because I believe he is well versed in his field and takes the time to evaluate me and my needs. His office staff are absolute gems! They are fast and efficient but never make you feel rushed. I really appreciate all that they do. Between the great job that the staff do and the excellent care I receive from Dr. Mendez, why would I need anything else?

Dr Mendez and [name removed] are always wonderful. As is all staff there.

Efficient and pleasant at the same time
December 16, 2021
The doctor and his staff are all very pleasant and helpful. However there is a generalized problem with the time it takes for phine calls whenever trying to reach them. The wait, both on the phone and in the office is too long.

I came in there because I have a knee injury and I was told to take aspirin and then put ice on it. Now, I'd already been doing that. And I know Dr. I thought more could have been done on the doctors behalf or on the doctors part to provide me with some better advice and just take aspirin and put put ice on my injury. So that's that's my feedback.
November 18, 2021
Dr Mendez and his staff are very accommodating, friendly, and very professional.
November 15, 2021

I have been a patient of Dr. Mendez for probably over 25 years. And I have to say, he's always been.... and very you know, things very well. And listening. I think he's a wonderful doctor. His staff is also very accommodating and make you feel very comfortable. So again, I would highly recommend Dr. Mendez to any of my family members. He's a great doctor. Very caring. Okay. Thank you.

All went well
November 04, 2021
I have had fractures in my left ankle for years. He has not done anything for me. I even had to order my ankle brace from Amazon because he did not offer me anything at all. He does not seem to realize how painful this injury is. All he cares about is me losing weight. I have not gotten the help I need for this injury & he does not care.
November 04, 2021
very good that's why I have been with him for years
October 29, 2021
When calling make your introduction less it is too long. Thank you.
October 29, 2021
Courteous staff, timely and thorough examination, by nurses and Dr Mendez. I always leave mi visits informed and satisfied with my check up. I also leave with my future appointments in hand. It's always a pleasant experience.
October 28, 2021
The patient portal could be easier to use. For example, my height is wrong. I changed it, and now it has gone back to what it was. Also, new messages still appear as new even after read. Dr. Mendez and staff are great, thank you for being there for us.
October 26, 2021
Very good Doctor, respectful the office is kept clean and they tend to your needs.
October 26, 2021
Dr. Mendez is an outsta6care giver. He has been my health provider for about 30 years. I would never consider leaving him and I respect his advice and opinion.
October 21, 2021
Dr. Mendez has always been professional and courteous. I've had him for about 10 years or more and (INAUDIBLE) really, really have to. Thank you.
October 19, 2021
Dr Mendez and his staff are always direct. Mendez in particular talks to me about his concerns about my health without making me feel attacked or judged. It's a rare thing these days. Some women are so uncomfortable and dread seeing physicians who put them down that they skip important visits. Mendez has never made me feel that way.
October 19, 2021
Dr. Mendez and his staff treat me with the utmost respect, caring and provide a very professional environment.
October 18, 2021
Dr. Mendez and the receiving nurse were amazing. The nurse that brought a cup for urine test seems a little upset, so we didn't know what I didn't understand why. But other than that, it was a good visit. Thanks.
October 18, 2021
Very positive experience with Dr. Mendoza and the staff in the office.

Good doctors are hard to find and he is the best
October 12, 2021
Well, my doctor has already had it for several years, more than 10 years and he has always treated me very well, I have also recommended him with friends and my whole family has practically been with him. Well, my sisters, my mother, my aunts, my brothers-in-law, well, I would recommend him very very very well because he has been a very good doctor for us, thank you.
October 11, 2021
The only inconvenience I had was the time to be called in. It took me 30 minutes to go in.
October 11, 2021
