Been going to this doctor for 5 years. Doc Mendez is awesome, his staff...not so much. They Never return phone calls. They hardly ever answer their calls; they are forwarded to a voice message machine that gets ignored. If it weren’t for how sweet and caring Doc his, I would have changed a long time ago.

I was caught off guard when I was checking out and his receptionist asked me to do a drug screen. Considering I wasn't there for Xanax, Ativan, Aderal, etc. I was even more surprised when I just saw it wasn't covered by insurance and I owe $180. A drug screen for someone who went in for med management for anxiety and depression. That's a first! Especially when they require follow up screens out of my pocket not covered. No thank you! Nice doctor but not worth being blind sided.

The most important thing is that he speaks Spanish and I feel that I'm talking to a friend. He follows up the treatment with you and he is so calm that when you go out you can feel that same calm energy with you. Thank God that I find you!

Dr. Mendez is one of the warmest people I've ever known. Most psychiatrists ask a few questions about symptoms and get out the Rx pad, but Dr. Mendez is very special. He helped me out of the hardest time of my life. He spends time listening, and I feel his genuine care for how I'm doing. He also trusts me. Many psychiatrists I've had in the past didn't trust me to know myself, but he does because he's gotten to know me. I've gone to his office terrified that I'm not going to be okay, and I leave

Excellent is just a little of the valuable human and professional quality that work in this health center for the mind. In such a fast-paced world we often need to put our minds in the hands of mental health professionals to deal with the day-to-day and help us with what needs to be corrected. Many thanks to Dr. Jose and his assistant Dr. Barbara. Fully recommended.

Dr. Mendez is a man of great character, compassion, and faith. It is too often that a psychiatrist's focus is on the prescription pad and a survey of symptoms rather than on the human being sitting before them. He gives his undivided attention to the patient. He gives his eyes, ears, and faithful words to a patient in need. He is passionate about changing the lives of many who seek his help. Last thought: Dr. Mendez is a great man with great knowledge. I could/would defend that to the end.

Dr. Mendez is a very professional, kind, wise and caring Doctor. He is one of the best Doctors I have met in my life. He dedicates time to listen, to answer your questions, to ask and explain to the patient, in these days is difficult to find a Doctor who can even make eye contact with the patient. I highly recommend Dr. Mendez
