What People Say About Dr. Fernando Mendoza, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I think he's great! I prefer doctors who listen to me and don't doubt my concerns. I have an odd heart issue and he was skeptical when i first described it but he listened to me, ran a bunch of tests and could admit, I have an unusual heart issue. I'm not terribly concerned but mostly wanted a good doctor to track any changes with me as I age. I hope for him to be my cardiologist for decades to come. Plus, he has a sense of humor--to me an essential characteristic.

Dr. Mendoza establishes a supportive and authoritative connection. Takes time to explain and answer questions. I felt confident in accepting his recommendations.

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.
