What People Say About Dr. Neelesh Mehendale, MD

Dr Mehendale saved my life. For the past four and a half years he has been treating me for a rare head and neck cancer that HE found following many incorrect and missed diagnoses by other reputable doctors. He was so caring and gentle when he broke the news to my husband and myself. He was obviously shaken and emotional himself. He quickly got me in to see an oncologist that specializes in Head and Neck cancer and Dr Menhendale has continued to see me every three to 6 weeks since January of 2015. He is as excited as we are that I am approaching my five year goal to be cancer free. He has calmed my fears and anxiety along the way and has never made me feel like he was rushed, or that my questions and concerns were not important. He gave me the courage I needed to fight this beast. He was always honest and I knew I could trust him. He currently treats members of my family and many friends as well as members of my cancer support group. They continue to thank me! Gwynne Fish

I recently visited and also received treatment on a separate occasion from Dr. Mehendale. From the first step of our interactions, I found him to be patient, knowledgeable and empathetic. I am currently in my second day of post-op, have had a number of unsolicited calls checking in on me, and feel like I am on track to becoming a new man who can breathe much more easily. Thank you Dr. Mehendale for your pre-op and post-op care.

We went in with great expectations due to his reviews. He was extremely rushed and seemed annoyed by questions on our end. He was also sarcastic regarding a treatment option we inquired about, which we did not appreciate. His prescription instructions varied from what he verbalized, to what was written in notes and that did not help our confidence. Not happy with his bedside manner. Front desk staff is friendly. It's also almost impossible to get a hold of someone on the phone and it takes a while to get a call back.

Cocky, arrogant. Instead of listening to and trying to understand my questions about an upcoming procedure, had an attitude like "I am a doctor, just trust me". Had zero empathy about my valid concerns as a parent.

Dr. Mehendale is very nice and his service was very kind. I was suffering from sinuses headaches every day for last 17 years, was so fortunate to come across Dr. Mehendale ( was referred by another primary care Doctor Purvi Sanghvi) and after he performed the Balloon sinuplasty procedure at his office last December 2017 for my blocked sinuses, it gave me immense relief and since last 6 months I have had absolutely NO sinuses headaches.

I've heard great things of Dr. Mehendale for over 11 years. I recently had to take my son in. I have been blown away by the experience so far. Both visits he was on time/even early. He is very knowledgeable, clear in his explanations, and so kind. The office staff was also very friendly. My son has to have a procedure done and Dr. Mehendale's staff has gone above and beyond checking insurance coverage and giving me clear step by step instructions to cover my financial bases.

Dr. Mehendele put ear tubes for my 14month old baby girl. His bedside manner, approachability, and kindness were second to none. He made us feel very comfortable and confident that he was the man for the job. I write this review as a father but also as a fellow ENT surgeon although I do not operate I children, I cannot recommend Dr. Mehendale highly enough for your child’s ENT needs.

I have a family of 8 and we all see or have seen Dr. Mehendale for our ENT needs. He is just amazing. Knowledgeable, open, collaborative and works with you to understand and make decisions on your own healthcare/treatment options. Excellent at explaining things on level you can understand. Staff is all excellent as well. Worth the drive from wherever you are.
