we love Dr. Mendelson. we wish he took adults. we have been going to him since 2005 and with her turning 18 in February we are sad to leave a doctor that has been with us all these years. we would recommend him to everyone. we would give a great big shoutout with appreciation

September 27, 2019

everything was great except for the wait. it was 1.5 hours spent waiting for an x-ray and 5 minute check up.

Doctor was great!

September 26, 2019

We waited for over 45 min in the waiting room with no updates. No one came to greet us to tell us respectfully that they were behind. Lion waiting area has no reception desk, just a double door you have to enter to the nurses station to ask for updates/confirm that you are checked in. Awful layout and service. Physician did not thoroughly review the Xray with us or examine and follow up the potential wrist injury that was seen on the initial Xray in the ER 6 months ago.....not sure he even knew about it

Dr Mendleson is a great doctor, we see him at our Spina Bifida clinic. so.he knows us and its so worth the 3 hr drive to see a Good doctor.

unfortunately our experience with Dr. M is progressively getting worse. he was laughing uncontrollably to the point of making me and my child uncomfortable.he spoke about his future travel and past jobs while our questions went unanswered. upon seeing my reaction to his continuously laughing; he began making jokes about serious subject matter (our reason for the visit). my teenager felt uncomfortable and tried keep him on track by asking questions about the condition. he displayed agitation at our attempts to stay focused on solutions. he sat in a reclining position like someone lounging poolside. in a long-winded tirade regarding a perceived disregard for preventative measures, his hands hit the window treatment. fumbling to end the session, he said "ok goofball". we couldn't leave quickly enough and my child was in tears

This was our first visit. I was very pleased with the time that spent spent examining my son and the explanations we received regarding his problems , our concerns and his conditions.
