    The two assistants

    Both Dr. Mendez and his assistant went out of their way to give the best care possible and make patients feel important and welcome.

    Dr Mendez was amazing. My daughter has such [ ] when it comes to apptointments that she was already upset when we were in the waiting room. He came in, said hello, then proceeded to bring in a small table/chair for her to sit at and color while we talked. He t hen spent time coloring with her and talking so she would be comfortable. He did not rush and was just amazing with her. When you’re a parent of a child with [ ], you usually have providers who will rush through appts just to get you out. Not him- he included my daughter and made sure all questions were answered. Definitely one of a kind doctor.

    The dr Mendez and the nurses and the staff.

  • May 16, 2024

    Dr. Mendez is EXCELLENT. He spent A LOT more time with me than I deserved. He is warm, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, professional, and "unpretentious" (Not "full of himself" or, not "the center of the universe"). I suspect his compassion comes from not on ly who he is as a physician but, Dr. Mendez's cultural upbringing as well. Lee Group is fortunate to have him on staff. Thank you Dr. Mendez. PS - I must mention the LPN who processed my intake. EXCELLENT!

  • May 12, 2024

    As usual, Dr Mendez was very thorough. He asks probing questions designed to make you think about your condition and give him answers with more depth than you might have come up with on your own. He also takes the time to explain what effects my condition migh t have on other aspects of my medical health.

  • May 1, 2024
