he's an outstanding compassionate doctor whom is interactive with the child being evaluated and the siblings he takes the time required and we greatly appreciate him for that

The staff and doctors are top notch and pleasant.

June 23, 2016

Promptness with appointment and scheduling of surgery was wonderful.

June 20, 2016

Very happy with this doctor! Surgical skills are excellent, and he is very knowledgeable.

June 16, 2016

Dr. Mendelson is wonderful. I would not take either of my boys with club foot to anyone else. Also, the M.A. Courtney needs to be acknowledged. She goes above and beyond for my kids.

June 16, 2016

Dr Mendelson is great with my son. this visit was a pre op visit. he will be getting surgery to remove pins in his left leg.

June 16, 2016

Dr. Mendelson wasn't very helpful when we brought up concerns that we (parents) and our pediatrian had about his injury and multiple past injuries. He was so unhelpful that my pediatrian said he would just wait for the report from our visit which should have listed multiple questions that we asked and the answers from Dr Meddelton. However, when our pediatrian received the report it said "Mom has no questions." And the report did not mention any of our conversation and concerns.

great caring Doctor!

June 13, 2016

Dr Mendelson has been my daughter's orthopedic surgeon for almost a decade. He's made such a wonderful difference in her life and we will be forever grateful.

June 06, 2016

everyone is so friendly and helpful with our son. he was not thrilled about getting strapped to the table for the X-ray, but the ladies are so fast and helpful.
