Only been with Dr. Mendez for a few month. He did my Nova Ablation surgeu and Thank God it went well. Very good Dr. the only thing I don’t like is having to wait so long to see the Dr., but that’s in every Drs office you go to. Aside from that ???? Excellent Dr. and the staffs are attentive.

I had a miscarriage in April 2017, went to dr Mendez office, who was my doctor for years. They did an ultrasound and they said I still had some baby residuos inside me. They made me wait again 2 more weeks for an other consultation with dr Mendez ( and I waited 3 weeks also to have the first appointment). Two days before the second appointment I had a very heavy bleading and I had to go thru ER and had a surgery because my doctor didn't see me on time

It’s all been said in the other five star reviews. Dr. Mendez and his staff are all I could have hoped for my surgery.. He was excellent during pre and post surgery, answered all my questions provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue. If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic and takes the time to be caring even while maintaining a very busy practice look no further, God Bless him!

Dr. Luis E. Mendez is an great doctor he explain everything to you very clearly about your health and ask if you have any questions. Him and his staff make you feel very comfortable cause you already nervous when you go to the doctor. The doctor and the staff are very helpful. They even call to check on you to see how you feeling and I think that is great. I would tell my friends and family member to come to see Dr. Mendez cause they care about the patient health.
