Spartanburg SC |
Dr. Mendozza unfortunately delivered the news of my father's cancer diagnosis today. He was the most unprofessional and rude doctor I have ever encountered, which was even more upsetting given the poor prognosis he was delivering. He was unkind and made the experience the most unpleasant it could have possibly been for my parents. After informing us he had less than six months to live, he stated that it was "no big deal" to wait another "week or so" for another test in order to begin treatment.

I'd been diagnosed w/narcolepsy/cataplexy by sev sleep spec in past. I relocated&had to see Mendoza for meds. He insisted on another sleep study. THEN he tells me he won't be giving me any meds bcuz I do not have narco. Got so bad, was sent to see someone at a "new office". his partner. Was asked y I hadn't been compliant'w/my meds.That's when I found out that M had read the wrong sleep study, went back&called in 12 refills, but NEVER notified me! The partner(C) btw, worse if I could imagine

I have seen 3 such specialists over the years,& I was least happy with him. He reversed the finding of sleep apnea of my other 2 doctors, but family members still observe me with breathing stops and snoring. He said I did not sleep long enough to get proper results. I normally sleep 1-2AM to 10-11AM, but the test was inflexible--sleep tested from 10 PM to 5AM only,so of course he didn't get correct results! He also did not treat my asthma and allergies very well. I am changing doctors.
