Dr. Mendelson is great! He's very knowledgeable and patient and answers all questions. Very kind to my son and I. My child sees many specialists at the hospital and Dr. Mendelson is one of the best!

We waited over an hour to be seen. Dr. Mandelson. Once we saw him he was condescending and really provided no assistance other than to tell my daughter to ignore the cyst and pretend it isn't their. When we mentioned that it caused pain he stated she would have to have it for a year before removing it. When asked if wrapping it would help with the pain he said "if it would make you feel better". I feel he did not take us seriously and brushed us off.

Excellent service. Confidence in medical team.

Terrible wait time at the office. Did not see provider until an hour after scheduled time. also poor follow up from the awesome office staff. was told I would see the doctor within two weeks for a follow up but they could not find a time this year to fit me in with provider.

We are very pleased with Dr. Mendleson. He has known our family for approximately eight years, caring for all three of my children with scoliosis. He has always taken his time with all of our questions and concerns, and he has given us realistic and truthful information regarding their condition, bracing, surgery and healing.He did a wonderful job on my daughter's spine surgery and will be performing another surgery on my other daughter. Although we obviously would rather not have scoliosis, having a knowledgeable and caring doctor during this time makes this experience much easier, and as pleasant as possible.

December 07, 2017

Dr. Mendelson is excellent..very kind and respectful to us. I will be sad not to see him after he's healed.

Dr. was great. however, waiting for over a HOUR for a 5 minute doctor visit is ABSURD. I understand waiting but AN HOUR? Do better.
