I saw Dr. Mendelsohn a few years ago for an eye infection. When I suspected something was wrong, I went back to him because he is so thorough. I was diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes. He was able to schedule me for surgery ASAP. Within about a month both surgeries are completed, with multifocal lens implants. I have had no complications and see better than I have in years! Dr. Mendelsohn is very knowledgeable, professional and comforting.

Dr. Mendelsohn is reminiscent of a time when doctors cared about their patients. He has consistently gone above and beyond for my family and me. He is extremely knowledgeable about eye health and disease and never rushes his patients. He was even there for me on a Sunday morning when my eye was swollen shut. He left his house, met me for an emergency exam and resolved my issue the same day. Dr. Mendelsohn is one of kind.

Doctor Mendelsohn is amazing, I first stumbled upon him when my old eye doctor wanted to charge me a "red eye" fee of $50 for an emergency staph infection. He took me right in at no extra charge and was so detail oriented!! I just recently had my year check up and my insurance changed and I am now out of network with him! I will still see him for all my eye appointments I am just that happy!!! So thank you to you and your whole team for being AMAZING!!

I have been seeing Dr. Mendelsohn for over 20 years and I can't say enough good things about him. He has kept a chronic viral eye infection in check for most of that time and has bent over backwards to treat it when it has flared up. He has always taken to time to treat and discuss issues as necessary and he has excellent "bedside manner". On occasions when my virus did flare up he has given me his personal cell phone number and told me to call him at anytime if I needed any help or needed to be
