Dr. Mendez knew he wanted to be physician in the fifth grade. 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. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing basketball, and golfing.

I previously had Kaiser as my insurance, and recently had to switch due to unforeseen circumstances, and after just this first visit I am so glad I switched and have told my adult daughters as soon as they have a chance, they should also get rid of Kaiser and switch to this group where the Dr actually shows concern for your best interest.
