Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mendez "My commitment is to provide quality, expert care to our allergy, asthma and immunology patients. My primary objective is the patient. I do not treat symptoms, but provide comprehensive evaluation in determining the source of the medical complaint. Time spent reviewing medical history, and quality of care delivered, I believe, sets me aside from others treating "allergies" in our area. As such, our primary source of referral are other patients satisfied with the care and attention they receive."

fantastic DOCTOR Loved him. he was very patience with my daughter , very polite and listened calmly to all I explained him. He is very courteous and honest, he wont prescribe a medicine if not needed, he tells you how it is. Learned a lot with his explanations and its very funny made my daughter laugh and feel more relaxes for her first allergy test. I would definitely go back and keep him as an allergy doctor.
