I only got to speak once to the Dr. His staff was liberally dispensing medical opinions specific to me while refusing to convey my messages or concerns to the Dr.

Dr. Mendiola has been a great support for me. He has worked with me to find the best possible outcomes. He is kind and concerned. He is serious when required but can also have a light hearted fun side as well. I recommend him highly to any who are struggling and want life to be better.

Dr. Mendiola and his staff are the best and amazing!! They have helped make a challenging time in my life bearable. Melissa and all the other cute guys and dolls there are super friendly just like Lee! He suggested the TMS treatment and I figured I had nothing to lose, but it changed my life!! I did not believe that was possible, but here I am experiencing a rebirth of my old self and feeling pretty darn good more often than not.I could not have done it without their kindness & compassion.

Dr. Mendiola is a very competent physician and a refreshingly good person.He succeeded in treating my rapidly deteriorating condition and has restored my productivity and health. I am lucky to have found Dr. Mendiola. I recommend his practice sincerely. The front desk manager, Melissa, is highly competent and handles patients like a champ, and I have never had to wait more then a few moments to be seen. Hats off to this fine Doctor who truly cares about his patients.

My experience with Dr. Mendiola (and TMS) was a very positive one. Not earth-shattering, but it definitely improved my depression. The first and biggest thing I noticed about three weeks into it was that I no longer had that black cloud following me around. I got out of bed more easily and out of the house. My concentration improved both socially as well as at work. I slept a little better and I dreamt more, which I think is a healthy thing. I would encourage anyone to try TMS.

I am so grateful that I came across Dr. Mendiola. He did for me what no one else was able to do ... or see for many years. He's incredibly skilled in his profession and also a genuine person whom I am glad to interact with. That makes it easy to discuss personal issues that affect your treatment. I can't believe how much my life has changed since I first came in to see him a year ago. My struggles no longer sabotage my life and I can function... that's everything.

First visit. He became angry judgemental. I had no hope. I am beyond help. Mind you my first appointment. He did not have a diagnosis for me. I literally got sick to my stomach and ran out the door. He was an awful man and doctor. I told my primary doctor what happened and he gave two other doctors to look up. I was quiet, timid, shy, edgy with Dr. Mendiolo the minute I walked in his office.
