Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Mendoza does a thorough exam, and is very conservative when it comes to prescribing medication or procedures. He listens carefully, and explains everything very clearly. He is always friendly and appreciative of his patients. Having had cataract surgery I found it a fascinating procedure. Dr....more
