I waited for a LONG time before finally seeing the doctor and when he finally came into the room the exam was over quickly.

November 16, 2016

Dr. Mendelson is an excellent doctor. He is very caring and thorough.

November 11, 2016

Dr Mendelson took the time to explain to me the nature of my daughter's injury. He went through it step by step so that I would understand what was wrong.

November 03, 2016

My child's provider was amazing!

November 02, 2016

Dr Mendleson is the best he even gave me a hug when i was crying over my daughter needing surgery

November 02, 2016

The only thing that I would have to add is that in my opinion, the doctor seemed rushed. that he did not want to sit and listen to the questions I have to ask

We've always had great help from everyone at Children's Hospital. It was a little challenging this visit simply because we were there so long waiting. None of our previous appointments have taken this long to be seen.
