I have been left with pain, now for 10 years post op, from what i feel, in my opinion, is mendel's disregard and failure to properly and timely diagnose. Ten years, hour after hour, day after day, month after month, year after year.

Dr. Mendel was very helpful in explaining my condition with my shoulder. He recommended surgery which he preformed on me and now I am completely without pain and everything went well and I am very satisfied with the surgery he preformed on me and am very happy with his helpful advice in my recovery. His team was very professional and caring.

I had a right knee replacement and a right ankle replacement. Both were very successful. My ankle was in very bad shape. It had pretty much self-fused over the years and the arthritis and pain had become unbearable. By 12 weeks post-op of my ankle replacement I was walking 2 miles. I would highly recommend Dr. Mendel to anyone who is suffering with pain. He gave me quality of life again. Thank you Dr. Mendel!

Dr. Mendel performed my shoulder and bicep surgery on April 3, 2018. I’m 14 weeks post op and nearly back to 100%. Mendel was amazing and I should have done it years ago.

I had total ankle replacement surgery in September 2017. I am totally free from the pain I experienced before the surgery. My treatment was exceptional and the recovery was much easier than I expected.

After a year of ankle pain and hardly being able to walk I was recommended to Dr. Mendel. He explained the surgery and the recovery period. I was very satisfied with the entire proceedure and would recommend Dr. Mendel to anyone who is suffering with ankle pain.

In 2017, Dr. Mendel performed both a shoulder reversal and a foot reconstruction for me. It would be very difficult for me to say anything negative about these surgeries or the care I received after. Dr. Mendel and his staff are very thorough and knowledgeable. All aspects of the procedures were covered in advance and again as needed. Highly recommend Dr. Mendel and his staff to anyone facing these types of surgeries.

Dr. Mendel has performed surgeries on three occasions. I've always been pleased with the outcomes. Most recent surgery was a total shoulder replacement.
