Dr. Mendelsen and staff were wonderful. All questions and concerns were addressed at the time of the appointment. His treatment was realistic and he was very good with my daughter. She really liked him a lot. I felt comfortable with the treatment plan when we left.

My son had an injury and has been treated and had surgery performed by Dr. Mendelson. I'm very pleased with the care my son has received. We would definitely recommend Dr. Mendelson. All the staff at his office and at Children's Hospital (the day the surgery was performed) were helpful, kind, and professional. Thank you!

he was so nice and helpful.

Dr. Mendelson is a wonderful doctor and is one of our favorites at Children's Hospital. He's done surgery on two of my children. The first one was to put a screw in her foot to repair a fracture. The second was a much longer complicated surgery on my son's hips and leg muscles. For both he took the time to answer all of my questions about the procedures. I was very nervous, but felt like I knew what to expect as far as how long the surgeries would take and what to expect after. Both surgeries went well, he did an excellent job and each took about the expected amount of time. Post op, my son was in the hospital for an extended length of time and either Dr. Mendelson or his fellow/residents checked on him often. Any concerns I had were immediately addressed while still inpatient and during follow up appointments as well. I would recommend Dr. Mendelson for anyone whose child needs an orthopedic surgeon! He was very skilled as a surgeon and was also very friendly and really took the time to answer all my questions. Both of the kids who had the surgeries really liked him as well, and that's important. As a parent, you want your children to like the providers as well and feel comfortable going to see them.

I never feel rushed with Dr. Mendelson. He always patiently listens.

We had a very positive experience. I thought my child received the necessary attention he needed for his injured leg to heal.
