I have been going to Dr Mendelsohn since I was pregnant with my son, 25 years ago. She is my favorite doctor and I will not go to anyone else for female care.

I have been seeing Dr. Mendelsohn for about 3 years. Initially, she seemed like she did somewhat care about patients. Service became just worse and worse- no attention, , waiting for a long time and getting limited explanations. I actually literally asked her how is the word she mentioned spelled, so I can ask google and get some explanation because she is so busy. Please keep in mind that I am no nonsense and straight to the point person and I did not expect her to chat and entertain

I'm a little nervous about leaving this review, because I LOVE Dr. Mendelsohn and would dislike having more appointment competition but I have to state how much I appreciate her. She is so bright and knowledgeable. I have been seeing her for about 15 years. She saw me through both my pregnancies and delivered one. Being over 35 years of age with both, she was on top of extra tests and US's should they be necessary. She may also be a bit "rough around the edges" but I trust her completely.

Doctor Mendelsohn is the most amazing doctor EVER! Ten years ago my general physician told me that I had to terminate my pregnancy for numerous reasons. Upon meeting Dr. Mendelsohn and hearing her angelic words, "I'm not worried about it" I have been indebted to her. Because of her, I have my beautiful daughter/best friend. I have seen Dr. Mendelsohn forevermore on all my OBGYN needs and she is ALWAYS super kind, helpful, comforting, and very thorough. Thank you Dr. Mendelsohn! I love you!
