I have been seeing Dr Mendoza regularly for over a year. She is professional, caring, extremely knowledgeable and most importantly a very fine doctor. I found her to be wonderfully empathetic and always there to help. I have experience with other psychiatrist in my life and I would rank her with the highest. Her knowledge of medications is vast. I recommend her highly.

I only saw her once. Getting my point across was a struggle, I shared to her that my mom was possibly narcissistic and had depression because she was always at home, slept all the day and had her way in making everything about herself. There was a point in our conversation when she asked me to stop the psycho-babble. I found it very offensive. Without asking me questions, she just commented that my mom is not narcissistic. I question her ability to acknowledge and validate clients.

Dr. Mendoza is the most intelligent psychiatrist i've ever spoken with.Psychiatry as a medical practice is still in its infancy, meaning we don't know all there is to know about the medicines prescribed, but Dr. Mendoza knows practically all there is to know to date (mechanisms of action of SS/NRIs,DNRIs, atypical APs,TPs, tricyclics, MAOIs, etc. Not only is she adept in the pharmacology, but the psychology as well. Her vast knowledge, coupled with her caring personality, made me choose her.
