Patient Comments (4)
Farmington, MI |
Dr. Mendelson put me in a life threatening condition. He didn't take my condition seriously, didn't listen to my concerns, & acted inappropriately (brought a fake axe in the room when I was awaiting a procedure). He told me that my procedure was going to be extremely painful, although it wasn't, just to keep me in an uncomfortable and excruciating state. He gave me a cortisone shot without telling me (didn't find out until a week later). Would not wish my experience with him on my worst enemy.

He doesn't spend any time with you about 5 minutes after waiting to see him for an hour after my appointment time. He does not talk to you he talks at you talking into a machine and he does not give any pain medication even though I have a tear in my rotator cuff and need surgery. He does not spend anytime answering questions and he is out of the office in a flash. I had to holler into the hallway to ask him a question because he left so quickly.
in New Hudson, MI |
I technically can't even put it at a one star because he only spent a total of 5 minutes in the room with me, did not answer any of my questions, and did not want to provide me with any pain meds as I was supposed to have shoulder surgery. He dropped me and canceled my surgery because I could not pay the $3,000 bill he dropped on me 4 days prior to my surgery so he canceled my surgery. There's also a severe lack of communication in that office.
West Bloomfield, MI |
He told me he did not recognize what was going on in my MRI and dropped me from his office. Turns out I have arthritis and a bakers Cyst nothing horrible or complicated but Steven Mendelson looked panicked and unable to diagnose my issues let alone fix it. I wouldn't recommend this guy to anyone.
