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.

Dr. Mendez is great! He spent time answering my questions and was able to get my knee to feel pain free. My knee had been killing me for about a month and he quickly diagnosed my problem. He told me all my treatment options. He wasn't pushy about surgery like another doctor I had recently seen. After an injection and some physical therapy my knee was back to normal and I started jogging again! Also his staff and front office were very courteous and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Mendez.
