Patient Comments (1)
in Los Alamitos, CA |
Was four minutes late to my appointment, the most unfriendly woman at the check-in window rudely informed me of that (those were the first words from her mouth, not hello, no smile!) Because of being a new patient and being four minutes late, I was informed the Dr. could not see me. Therefore, no experience was had with Dr. Mendoza. I rescheduled for an appointment 16 days away and by the time I arrived home I decided to cancel my next appointment based on the horrible experience with staff.
