I know every one is busy but it is really hard to get an appointment if you are having an issue the same day- that is a little frustrating. Dr Mendez is a great guy and very busy so not sure how that can even be rectified.

Dr Mendez and his staff are the best! Could not ask for a better doctor or better nurses!
April 05, 2021
So first impressions really do say a lot. This was my first time to this office. So, I sat in the reception area a good 10 minutes. First of all, the area where the admins sit was completely dark, so weird. Also, there were 3 admins sitting there, and they talked about their personal lives the ENTIRE time. There was 3 of us patients waiting there and we could hear everything. So unprofessional! My nurse and Dr. were fine, but the admins in the reception area need to work on their professionalism.
March 25, 2021
Very professional and personal visit.
March 25, 2021
I did not appreciate the lack of respect Dr Mendez provided to me and to the Chiropractor that has been caring for me. Dr. Mendez is very quick to prescribe drugs instead of trying to find out what is exactly going on with my back. I uploaded a VERY thorough report from my Chiropractor 2 months ago and it has yet to be read.
March 22, 2021
We reviewed all my blood work and discussed all my minor problems. Very professional and extremely knowledgeable. He made a doctors visit fun and informative. One suggestion worked over night suggesting a new sleeping position to eliminate hands going to sleep. It worked
March 22, 2021
I am always pleased to see Dr. Mendez. He is very professional, yet makes me feel at ease. Great personality!
March 19, 2021
We have been seeing Dr. Mendez for over 35 years. Ever since we first saw him in the Urgent Care with one of our children. I think it's too bad that the doctors don't have to rotate through Urgent Care Anymore. That's a great way to get to know a physician.
March 19, 2021
totally pleased with Dr Mendez and his staff. I am problem with the online portal. I recently updated my new email and cell phone number and now I cannot access the portal.

It was almost a half hour from the appointment time for the Telehealth appointment and he seemed very surprised that I didn't want pain meds and that I only wanted a sleep meds, but that's that's it. I just I just missed my doctor. He was fine.

I finally found a dr that listened to me and provided me with a referral for a wound that needed treatment. He was professional and very personable at the same time. I have already referred him to someone else. The office staff was great and I felt as tho my needs were being met. It took a while to find a dr that I will stay with. Thank you Dr Mendez and staff for providing such great care.
