Quality, Ethics and charm. Dr. Mendez has a way of making an injured person feel at ease. He explains in detail step by step the directions they will be following. My first and only choice.

He replaced both of my knees last year. Pain free and wish I would have done it sooner!

I had knee pain for a while in my knee. I didn't know who to go see but a friend told me about Dr Mendez. He had done a surgery for her and recommended Dr Mendez. I could not have been happier I got right in and he told me of the things I could do before I would probably knee replacements. It ended up I needed one and 3 years later I needed the other. I feel blessed to have Dr Mendez as my surgeon. I have 2 new knees and am very happy. Thank you Dr Mendez.

Friendly, great bedside manner. I wish other doctors were like him.

It was such a pleasure to be treated by Dr. Mendez. No long wait in the waiting room and he spent plenty of time talking to me and discussing treatment options. A++

I had knee replacement surgery by Dr. Mendez 3 months ago and am very happy. The whole process was much easier than I thought it would be. I should've had my knee replaced sooner.

Dr. Mendez repaired my mother's hip fracture. He did a great job in every aspect from the initial visit, performing the surgery, and followup visits. She is back walking without pain and is independent again. He also treated my husband's knee and I cant say enough how good he is.

Dr. Mendez is the master of patient care, both in the office and in the OR. He clearly explains everything he is doing in terms I can understand, and uses the xrays, old and new, for comparisons. He listened to my concerns, asked appropriate probing questions, and made sure my questions were addressed to my satisfaction, again, in terms I could understand. Can't ask for more than that in a surgeon.

My knee surgery by Dr Mendez was a overwhelmingly positive experience. The entire staff at both Dr. Mendez's office and Mt. View hospital was efficient and professional. The care felt personal and the environment was happy and positive. If I had realized how easy it would be, I'd have done it much sooner!

I'm very pleased that I was referred to Dr Mendez by my family doctor. My knee had been bothering me about a month and really limiting my activities. He diagnosed my problem quickly and sent me to physical therapy. I noticed steady improvement and am now back to my usual activities. Even better was that I avoided surgery which was recommended right away by another local surgeon. I'm glad I saw Dr Mendez fir a second opinion.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I was referred to dr. Mendez by th er and will never go there again. It took over a week to see him, he was reluctant to sign any paperwork and appeared to believe all I wanted were drugs. After an MRI he determined it was not my imagination, I was really injured. He gave me an exercise to do and seemed reluctant to send me to therapy. I did everything possible to return to work. However, I still have pain and will live with it until I have an opportunity to see someone else.

Overall the experience was great, in regards to Dr. Mendez and his staff. Highly recommended.
in Las Vegas, NV |
My 17 year old son had a torn labrum and Dr. Mendez operated on him this past July. The care he showed my son and the follow-up visits were extraordinary. Dr. Mendez was referred to us by another orthopedist who said he would have no surgeon other than Dr. Mendez operate on his family if a shoulder was involved. I'm glad we took his advice.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Overall I was very happy with my experience at his office. He spent time with me and his staff was very helpful. Everything was explained to me and my knee pain has resolved. Thank you! I will recommend to family and friends.
in Las Vegas, NV |
