I called Dr Mendez office today on Friday 5/6/16 regarding a refill of my emergency inhaler for asthma that I have had for 63 years. I was told that I need an new visit , and could not happen till the following week. leaving me without emergency medicine . I tried to explain to the receptionist that the medicine is for EMERGENCY USE , she said call 911 if that happens and hung up. neither her or the doctors care .
