Patient Comments (5)
New York, NY |
Arrogant and in a hurry. He contradicted himself about my X-rays in the space of 2 minutes. The resident who first examined me took his time and spent about 10 minutes checking my ankle and said that they would order an MRI. As I was leaving Mendes came in and wanted to a look. He spent about one minute checking my ankle and dug his thumb really hard into the area I said was hurting. He really hurt me and my ankle flared up way worse than it was before I got there.

Dr. Mendez wasn't concerned with me as a patient with a fracture nor a as a person in pain. He didn't examine me nor provide me any medical advice on how to care for myself. A very disappointing experience with a doctor who is affiliated with Lenox Hill Hospital.

He was an excellent clinician and was extremely kind and compassionate.

The appointment was quick but thorough he didn't immediately suggest surgery, in fact he recommended physical therapy first which helps me gain trust in him as a doctor and as a surgeon. I also appreciate that he has considered the unbelievable amount of times I've injured the same ankle and my concern that PT is not helping. Waiting on an MRI and an Xray, will update if/when it leads to surgery! Great doc, 100% recommend!
I waited for over 1 hour in excruciating pain to be seen by this doctor even though I was informed I would be seen sooner. When I got to the exam room, Dr. Mendez was rude, arrogant and unsympathetic. Within 1 minute of looking at my knee he said I needed surgery. When I expressed concern and told him I didn't think I needed surgery and wanted to explore other alternatives, he got upset with me and raised his voice at me. Needless to say I will be getting a second opinion. GO SEE ANOTHER DOCTOR!
