All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

I came from an abusive family of people who were themselves largely mental health professionals. My mother concocted a story that I had threatened her with a knife, as she had done before and after with other siblings. Rather than removing me from this home, Mendoza diagnosed me as a schizophrenic. No consideration was given to the fact that up until his treatment with antipsychotic mm educations I had been a straight A student with no history of fighting promiscuity drug use or out of control behavior.

While I was a patient at Good Samaritan Hospital, Dr. Mendoza was my doctor. He is a great doctor and he knew how to treat me and diagnose me. I had actually been a previous patient of his from about 20 years ago. He was great then, too.
