What People Say About Dr. Richard Mendelsohn, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Our 12 year old daughter had gone to 3 other doctors for advice on why her feet turned in. Two said all she needed was rehab. After 12 weeks of rehab, no improvement. Another doctor wanted to do complicated surgery requiring major surgery, weeks of rehab and a lot of pain. Dr. Mendelson diagnosed the issue, performed minor surgery, had incredible bedside manner and our daughter now is completely normal. He and his staff are very professional, caring and we can give him the highest recommendation

excellent experience He just corrected my bunion with no issues. I had my other foot done by another doctor who messed it up. Now my left foot is beautiful and works great. I am wearing heels 5 weeks after surgery with no visible scar

Dr. Mendelsohn immediately recognized that I had previous been fitted with the wrong orthotic device that resulted in hip pain. He said my hip pain would stop in one to two months after I began wearing orthotic device that he prescribed. He was precisely correct on the diagnosis and the amount of time it would take for my hip pain to end.

Do not let the Nova top doctors ranking fool you when it comes to Dr. Mendelsohn. Run do not walk away from having any surgery done with Dr M. I have seen multiple doctors following my foot surgery with that have asked me why he did the procedure he did, confirmed I had a major complication not communicated to me by Dr M, and said there was a greater than 50% chance I would need two of the procedures redone in the short term. Please also ask Dr M about his financial stake in Ffx surgical ctr.

Dismissive, doesn't care about patients. Always in a hurry to get me out of the office. Unable to diagnose injuries.
