When I first contacted their practice I was told they don't take everyone. I had my last practice fax my record to their office. They then called me and said everything looked good and we set up a time for an appointment. About two hours before my appointment they called me and said they were canceling my appointment. Apparently they didn't feel that I was "worthy" and basically told me to get lost. No explanation just told me to get lost. I guess if you are one of the "lucky" ones they will accept you as a patient.

I normally hate going to any doctor. I always felt they swept what i said under the rug they never took time to understand my issues. Not Dr. Mendoza, he wants to know about you and what you are experiencing. He actually listens and has this very calm personality that in return makes you calm. I actually like going to see Dr. Mendoza, he and his staff are amazing. They all make you feel welcome.

Dr Mendoza began treating me after a car accident. Following his course of treatment, I had a significant improvement in my pain level almost immediately. He always takes the time to speak with me at every visit. He listens to me and answers any questions I may have. He is very informative. He takes the time to explain diagnosis and procedures so that I have a full understanding of my treatment plan. I highly recommend Dr Mendoza.
