A+ Dr. Mendez is great! He reconstructed my ACL and I was able to return to play in 8 months at the collegiate level. He and his staff are fantastic. He trained at prestigious Stanford University in California.

Highly recommended!! Very knowledgeable and he spent time talking to me in terms I could understand. I was nervous at first at the prospect of surgery but I'm so happy he fixed my rotator cuff tear. Im back to playing tennis and enjoying life.
