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.

If people show up early or on time to the appointments, prioritize and tend to them at their said times. Those who come in late should have to wait. My appointment was at 4pm arrived there at 3:45pm and placed in room at 4 pm. I did not see the Doctor until 4:50 pm.
October 15, 2019
There is no better Dr.or staff to care for my medical needs. I don't go to the Dr often, but when I do, he and his staff always treat me like a VIP. My wait time has never been more than 15 mins. I've even gone in without an appointment and they always take care of me.

September 10, 2019
I already wrote my comment. Yes you may share it. I will not be apart of this office much longer. After over 30 some years. Doctor Mendez is excellent and his nurses are great. But office staff and rude, inconsiderate, and do not wish to deal with outsourced appointments. I feel it's absurd a patient can't contact the office directly. If I'm gonna deal with issues like this I'll just go to Kaiser. At least there I expect problems and Kaiser are located everywhere.
August 29, 2019

Dr. Mendez has been my prime care doctor for a long time and he is one of the finest doctors I've ever met. He has a first rate staff supporting him and our family is grateful we have him as our prime care. Also PIH as a health care organization is excellent and we are glad to have them as our health care providers.
