It took 5 days to get an appointment scheduled to cast my son's broken bone. The scheduling secretary was unhelpful and not courteous. Dr. Mendelson was very brief with my son, he was not tender or compassionate as you would expect with a child. His exam involved the xray and grabbing my son's broken bone area asking if it hurt. The nurse who cast him was polite, but would not have spoke more than 10 words if my husband had not engaged him in a little more conversation. Not a good experience
