Dr. Mendel has performed surgeries on three occasions. I've always been pleased with the outcomes. Most recent surgery was a total shoulder replacement.
Janesville, WI |
I have non stop foot pain, still almost 8 yrs post op, from tuvi Mendel....Supposed to be a Foot orthopedic specialist . Ha. Instead he left me in constant pain and hardly no balance. It's been horrible. I think he deserves less than One star. I hope others he has damaged will also comment.
in Morrison, IL |
Dr. Tuvi Mendel is an outstanding physician and surgeon. He first worked on me when I broke 5 bones in my foot and lower leg. He did an outstanding job and he brought my foot back to full functionality. He later did a reverse shoulder replacement on my left shoulder and again I am most satisfied and have excellent mobility in that shoulder. He is now treating my painful right knee which has the beginnings of arthritis. I appreciate his personal and thorough attention and recommend him to anyone
in Hillsdale, IL 61257 |
I don't think he listens to his patients. He has released me to continue working with no restrictions. I can not lift any thing above my right shoulder. I have limited mobility in my right shoulder, I can not climb a latter . I don't know how this doesn't mean that I have no permanent disabilities . or at least some restrictions . I had a complete reversal shoulder replacement.

I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. Mendel have been pleased with all. Have had both knees replaced and so happy with them. Think doctor did a great job.
in Barstow, IL. |
Dr. Mendel is very nice. He has a sense of humor. He explains everything to you. I had both knees replaced two years ago by him. I just returned from a trip to Disney World. I had absolutely no pain or problem with my knees after spending 6 -9hr days walking around. I recommend him whole-heartedly. He did an excellent job on my knees !
Davenport, IA |
I have recommended Dr. Mendel to family and friends. He is an extremely skilled surgeon and one of the few foot and ankles specialists in the Quad Cities. My joints are basically a mess and he has corrected several of my issues surgically, always with good results. He was open and honest about one recommended surgery that it would not alleviate all of my pain. Unfortunately he was right, but at least I knew what I would be like after the surgery and went into it with my eyes open.

two shoulder replacements---professional and down to business---shows concern
in Davenport, IA |
Aug.28,2016 was the day of my Reverse Total Shoulder (left) Replacement. Dr. Mendel explained my surgery to me and it went very smooth. I have no pain and I've regained full mobility and strength. I'm very pleased with the result. Dr. Mendel did an excellent job and I would recommend him to anyone. Can't thank him enough.
in Morrison, Illinois |
Dr. Mendel and his staff very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. Felt like I was at the right place! OR A Prompt and so clean and beautiful. All staff was A 1.
in moline, illinois |
I had surgery with him three years ago, and he did not fix my knee, (torn lateral meniscious) a simple surgery, and said, Oh, I could do it again????? We need to do a class action on him, to stop him from hurting others.
in Iowa |
Horrible experience. Not counting the initial surgery I had 6 painful subsequent surgeries, all within approximately a year or so, all appear to be due to or helped created by mendel's inability to properly and timely diagnose. The pain I had and continue to have is horrible. Sad thing is I don't think there's anything anybody can do about it, to relieve my pain and the ongoing nightmare I believe mendel created.
Davenport, IA |
So many others. Don't go to mendel. My opinion. Just saying, go elsewhere.
