St Louis, MO |
Dr. Mendelow and his team are very respectable and helpful. After a reoccurrence of my pilonidal cyst from 10 years ago, Dr. Mendelow and his team worked quickly to get me in for a small operation. Dr. Mendelow not only was able to remove the obvious diseased tissue but located an additional hidden tract and removed it accordingly. If not for him this could have gone unseen and only required further operations in the near future. His work is clean and precise and I would recommend him to anyone!

Outstanding. As a registered nurse it takes a lot to impress me with a doctor. He and his staff both professional,caring and compassionate. Surgery was last week kudos to Rachael and Maria also.
in O Fallon, MO |
Professional, great personality and demeanor and could be the role model for doctors of what bedside manner should be all about. Always takes the time to explain in basic English exactly what his opinion is and what your options are. Willing to take the time to explain and answer all your questions and those "what if" scenarios that so many doctors are reluctant to do.
