Dr. Mendez is the best doctor I've ever seen for any reason. I was uncomfortable discussing my vascular and vein issues with every other doctor (even my primary care). Dr Mendez and his nursing staff, the entire office really, were caring and very thorough when explaining options. I highly recommend this practice!

This “doctor” is the worst I’ve ever met. After 10 years of doing nothing to help me, other than telling me to walk and eat pears, he wanted to operate. He wanted to operate on the wrong keg because he didn’t know how to read his own tests. I went to another vascular surgeon who discovered a problem that he never checked for and gave me much more extensive tests as a regular part of their treatment. I strongly regret ever going to this “doctor”.
