Family members have been patients of Dr. Mendelsohn for over 35 years and managed the eye healthcare needs, including cornea surgeries, with competence, thoroughness and patient compassion. He has always remained highly informed of eye and vision research and developments and educates his patients as options/decisions need to be made. Our family confirms the faith and trust we have in his knowledge and skill, and we will travel the distance for our appointments with him.
