I believe it was 2013 my administrator for our church, just gone home 2 with the Lord . I was to do her service, She was a very important person in the community so this was my opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, Give them an opportunity to except Him into their life’s My chiropractor is it who is a very good friend told me you need to get to the doctor. She suggested why don’t you call that non-insurance Doctor Who is a Christian that all my patients are telling me about. It was two days before home going the service, I needed to have a voice plus I need to feel good enough to do be my best. I had been coughing all night long I was exhausted during the day. So I called they mediately got an appointment Dr. Mensink took excellent care of me. And as they say he doctored me up and got me on my feet feeling my healing. I can’t say enough good about Dr. Mensink and his staff as they are teamed up together in making a difference In changing life’s.

This Doctor cares about healing the body thru mind, body and soul. In depth medical care aimed at fing the root problems and helping patient heal one step at a time. My own issues caused me great pain and numerous Drs for 20 years. I am in 60's and feel like a much younger version of me. He is truly remarkable and a wonderful person. He cares, he listens, he is empathetic, he says it like it is so some habits might need changing. A patient has to follow his instructions for max success.

Recently after being puzzled by my treatment I learned that the Dr.believes that all patients should be treated with 3 principles.Treat your serotonin levels, thyroid & hormones. I don't respond well to antidepressants.They make me depressed.He told me to trust him.I did even though I've been getting worse,with issues untreated .Today I obtained my records. Details of my chronic pain,chest pain,fatigue ect are missing.As are conversations I'd had. Only his notes of progress. Find a different Dr.

Do not use this office for pain management. You will walk out confused and unsatisfied. I've been in pain management for 10 years. I broke my back in 3 places, have had 2 back surgeries, yet the Doctor looked me square i the eye and rudely told me I don't know what pain is. Only he knows real pain. Strange. Get a second opinion on any advise given from him if treatment may be complex. The staff is great. The room I was seen by the Doctor was also a storage room, not very professional.

This man should not be allowed to practice medicine. Honestly, he missed a diagnosis of severe heart disease until I had a heart attack. Then he missed a diagnosis of a separated sternum following a triple bypass operation. He thought I wanted pain pills. Meanwhile, I took myself to the emergency ward at SJV hospital and learned my body was going into sepsis. Good doctors said I would have been dead in just a couple of days. Mensink's diagnosis after 4 visits; drug counseling! NOT your guy...

Dr Mensink actually takes the time to explain his recommendations, urges follow-ups, and best of all his approach to treatment involves me, my responsibility. He doesn't just offer meds.

I have a team of doctors at a large teaching hospital but I wanted a local doctor. I was fortunate that I found Dr. Mensink. His specialty is hormonal wellness--not just for women but for men, too. I can't say enough good about him!!
