I was very pleased with his appointment and care. We did wait an hour past his appointment time before being called back just for xrays however I understand it's a pediatric office and sometimes scheduling doesn't stay on tract and things happen.

wait time was horrendous

I have no complaints, but I wish that Dr. Mendelsohn had directed more of his comments to my son and not just to me. I know he works with kids, but a 17 year needs to learn how to interact with doctors directly.

I really appreciate the level of care and professionalism provided during this hard time for us. We couldn't gotten a better team. Thank you all

My daughter is 16 years old and has been experiencing back pain daily. The doctor only briefly examined her. He directed a general explanation of back pain to me and did not direct conversation to her. Our pediatrician recommended this doctor to us and we were hopeful that he would help us think about ways to address her pain to improve her quality of life. This did not occur. My daughter left the visit with only a suggestion to adjust her lifestyle choices. She does not want to have to give up her sport or experience pain daily when sitting in school. She was disappointed and discouraged.

Dr. Mendelssohn is OUTSTANDING. I recommend him often.

Dr Mendelson is a excellent Dr i recommend him to everyone. Takes very good of my daughter and shes doing so much better since her surgery.

July 17, 2017

the doctor was very cocky and rude. I was extremely concerned with my sone reinjuring himself due to the rowdiness of his siblings at home. the doctor was rude and laughed at any question or concern I had. I asked him to please show some concern with my child's injury and he stated "put tape on it and have him keep his hand in his pocket" REALLY!?!? this is ridiculous and not a way to treat a patient! plus I had a $30 copay essentially for 2 pieces of 4 inch tape. ridiculous!!
