My Mother suffered a terrible accident, at no fault of her own, and is now being pressured by the insurance company to settle the case. This doctor was supposed to help and understand her injury so that he could advise on best next steps. Instead, he rudely addressed her and even said “in America you must speak English”. Do not go to this doctor, instead of putting the best interest of his patients first, he chose to belittle and degrade. He is what is wrong with America today.

Dr. Mendez is an excellent doctor who truly understands his profession. I only gave him 4 stars because some of my friends and family prefer doctors who are more gregarious. Personally, I like the straightforward approach and Dr. Mendez's willingness to answer any questions I have. He even thinks of questions I should ask but hadn't thought of myself.

I can’t even begin to share my experience with this practice, staff and Dr. Mendez included! Phenomenal care from scheduling my appointment, to self pay, and Dr. Mendez’s care. He returned my call back in a very timely manner and saved me a very expensive, lengthy and unnecessary trip (of panic) to the ED. All good things about this practice. Very highly recommended.

The staff was warm and friendly, the waiting time was brief, and Dr. Mendez was pleasant, informative, and easy to talk to. It was a first time visit, and I left very satisfied with the care I received.

Dr Mendez and his Team were awesome. Everything was handled quickly and without any issues and went just as planned. While never fun to have surgery, the process was without any stress enabling me to focus on getting back to my best.

Have been a patient for years and Dr Mendez has always treated me with respect, listened to my problem and concerns and addressed each in a very patient and caring manner, as well providing all options for treatment . I would highly recommend him as one who is truly concerned about the well being of his patient overall.

Very bad bedside manners, seems as if he doesn’t care about the well being of his patients (me). Did not want to listen to my issues, he just assessed me for what he thought not what I felt. Makes you feel worse when you leave than when you went in.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
