Patient Comments (7)
in Paoli, Pa |
It's very clear to me that Dr. Mendez is slipping in his later years. Very gruff initial exam. Would not listen to my pain complaints. Often talked over me as I was explaining my issue. I assume that he is so used to getting big bucks doing examination for Worker's Compensation insurers to dump their patients that he is starting to treat his own patients in a similar manner.
Glenolden, PA |
Dr. Mendez is good at what he do, but his bedside manners aren't that pleasant and he barely like to listen to what the patient has to say. I've mention to him several times about a problem that I'm still having and he chalks it up to it being mental as if I don't know pain from just being sore.

i was having such pain in my left arm a torn rotate cuff as it was keeping me from lifting my arm above my chest .i sought the service of DR. Mendez after seeing him i decided to have him operate and i was in so much pain.i had my sugary in June and went to physical therapy for about 3 mounts and my shoulder dose not hurt i have full movement and can put my arm over my head again. i cannot thank DR.Mendez enough for getting me right again
Philadelphia,pa |
He Spent very little time with the examination provided no pain relief, rx'ed lots of physical therapy which helped little and would have me return in 7 to 10 days to do it all over again, finally had enough and found a Dr that actual spent the time and rx'ed the proper treatment, now feeling much better no thanks to Dr Mendez.
in Clifton Heights, Pa |
Dr Mendez is the most professional, caring, knowledgeable physician I have ever been in contact with, and I have been a nurse for 28 years. His kindness only surpassed by his ability and would recommend him to every one i know
Havertown, PA |
Dr. Mendez is a wonderful Orthopedic Dr. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the file room clerk. The woman that answered the phone was extremely unfriendly and she made me feel as if I was bothering her by requesting a file. She is in the file room and her job is to accommodate file requests, but she has a very negative attitude. I was very kind using words such as; thank you, good morning, hello. Her tone of voice was scary and intimidating. Not good customer service skills at all.
in Ridley Park, PA |
this was my 2nd time seeing him and i still was not happy i was charged a copay only to be told i needed a mri which cost me 165.00 then i had to return and pay another copay just to get the results of my mri when a call would have been nice then i could not even get any pain meds why is the medical field only about greed what happen to the doctor making you feel like a person
