Don't waste your gas, look for someone that listens too you as a patient. Not as a former bad experience from the effects a someone that they fed meds too. His PA is rude as all too. No I wd never recommend them to anyone with a passion to heal. Not a friendly place except x-ray they are awesome. If they CD only do the surgery instead...I went give him one star if I had to to leave this review

Dr Mendez did my spinal fusion of L4,L5,S1 about 6 yrs ago. I could barely stand up straight at the time! I've had a full recovery, and am so pleased with the results! I am a hair stylist by trade, and am able to stand all day with no problem. I have referred many others to him as well, with great results. He is a very compassionate and caring surgeon!!!

Dr. Mendez is very good at taking time to listen, explain and prescribe. He took over for another neurosurgeon and I immediately found his advice and prescriptions to help my condition.

Dr.Mendez saved my husband's life on 1/18/16 with removal of a meningioma the size of a baseball. We met him through the ED on 1/8/16. My husband had very subtle symptoms in which he underwent a MRI, presenting a huge tumor, which needed a craniotomy ASAP. First he was put on steroids and then had embolization to the vessels feeding the tumor. 2 days in SICU and 2 days on neuro unit after 5 hr surgery. Home today feeling grateful and thankful he was his surgeon. The whole team is excellent
