Dr. Mendelson, although very knowledgable, has the worst, most reprehensible bedside manner and does a horrid job explaining medical conditions in layman terms. Additionally, You cannot get a call or an email from her. She will only interact with her patients through her assistant who is completely incompetent. Her assistant is either incompetent in her knowledge or does not care enough to answer simple patient questions. Because of these issues we will be switching doctors.
