I am a patient of Dr. M. Mendez and I really am grateful to have a Family Practice that accepts walk-ins with out appointments. I suddenly was hit with two illnesses and was able to call to ask if I could be a walk-in and was given the Green light!

I like Dr Mendez. However my experience is the last couple of visits seem to be rushed. It felt almost like they needed to know things right along, I think I spent more time with the nurse than I do with the doctor.

I recently moved to Lubbock from Amarillo. I needed to establish myself with a primary care doctor. Dr. Mendez was recommended to me, and I was very pleased with my first visit. His examination was thorough and complete. He was friendly and courteous. I am glad he will be my doctor.

I have been having health issues over the last 6 months, and the Doctor has got me to the people to help me. He also helped me get over the swelling of in my right knee. It is the first time in over 25 years that it has looked normal

I highly recommend Family medicine/Dr Mendez , he has been my pcp now for about 3 years and having so many medical conditions I had a very hard time finding a Dr that was willing to take time and sit down and discuss my health issues, with Dr Mendez I feel so comfortable and I feel I can discuss anything with him regarding my medical issues and he always makes sure to not make feel rushed.His staff is always friendly and also willing to make sure they take good care of their patients
