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 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.

I had a rotator cuff repair at a different location that had complications. That physician referred me to Dr. Kirk Mendez for continuing care. Dr. Mendez was confident, precise and explained everything thoroughly. After he performed surgery I was able to move my arm without pain very quickly and with very little physical therapy. As a 45 year old computer engineer my sports life was not a top priority. I had just about given up on my shoulder being pain free but now I have full function! Thanks

Dr. Mendez performed surgery on my son's knee (ACL) in 2013, his bedside manner is EXCELLENT! This was my sons first surgery so needless to say we were all nervous. He made us feel comfortable from the beginning! Everyone in the office is nice, and provides excellent customer service. Dr.Mendez and his team and took the time to speak with us, we never felt rushed. Highly recommended. My son's knee feels great.

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.

Excellent , caring doctor. Spends time listening and did a great job at explaining in regular terms the problem with me knee. He was able to get me back to running pain free without any surgery! I recommend him to family and friends. Also heard he is great at shoulders too.

Dr. Mendez is simply the best! I had a really bad knee injury a year ago and had to have my knee reconstructed. Dr. Mendez reconstructed my ACL, PCL , and MCL, as well as repaired my meniscus. Less than a year after I completed a half marathon and my knee felt great. Thanks! I recommend him to friends and family.

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.
