LOVED the office. Very beautiful! I was able to get an appointment as a new patient within a few days. I had to wait about 30 minutes after I filled out paper work to see the NP. However, Rebecca, was awesome. Explained everything to me! Highly Recommend this office.

The staff is really great and professional. Dr. Mendes is very kind; however, very unprofessional. She is not ever on time. Her kindness doe not pay my bills. My time is money as well. Her time buys gold; my time pays my bills.

 |  A Wonderful Surprise  |  show details
by Robyn Doersam on Oct 7th, 2013

I titled my review as a surprise for one rather important reason. I picked this office because a friend of mine referred me and the other is this office is listed as my network provider. Prior to the visit I did research and there were some very bad reviews, actually they would make a person who suffers from doctor anxiety (me) to think twice about going there. Well, I personally am the type who is the first in line to see a movie when the critics destroy it simply because I like to make form my own opinion. Frankly? I am not sure where those other people went or who they saw but I can honestly say that this was the best experience I have ever had when it comes to a medical appointment. The staff were wonderful and trust me I was a giant ball of nerves. They calmed me down, were efficient and very timely. I will also state without a doubt that Rebecca Arth, Nurse Practitioner is a total gem. I have had two children and have had my share of ob-gyn visits which are never pleasant but for the first time in my life I was totally comfortable, was treated like a person and not a number and was given their full attention from the moment in to the moment I left. Again, I am not sure about those who complained but from someone who is not easy to please and can be very critical (me), on a scale of 1-10..well cliché it may be but I give them 11.

Perhaps one of the worst experience ever! Her PA was useless and did not make any great recomendations about anything! Talked to me like I was less of a person. Would not recommend her to anyone! They only seem to care about the money

 |  Long WAIT! Didn't even see the Dr.  |  show details
Jan 29th, 2013

When I called I got an appointment the very next day which was awesome but I'm going in there for a gynecologist not all these cosmetic things which I think take priority. Well that wasn't really the issue, I made an appointment to see Dr. Mendes, however after waiting an hour in the waiting room, another 10 min in a separate waiting area after getting my weight, bp, etc. I was finally put into a room to wait another 30 min for a nurse practitioner. Now I have nothing against NPs but I made an appointment to see Dr. Mendes, not NP so and so. It was only an annual so it wasn't that big of a deal but be fair warned you probably won't see Dr. Mendes if you go to this practice.

There is a lack of professionalism and cultural background. If you come into this office, you will need emtional help.

Every thing this Dr. does is amatter of money. Purses, Spa. Dr could have read all the medical books; however, she needs a big book about being human.

 |  Great juvederm results!  |  show details
by Jennifer from ny on Apr 2nd, 2012

Celia is a great doctor. She is caring and made me feel at home. She talked me through whole process and took photos along the way. The injections were not painful cause she applies numbing cream. I was so nervous about the outcome but I love it! I highly recommend Celia for juvederm injections!

It all started out great, I quickly received an appointment with the offfice. The office was decorated beautifully, and the nurse who did my intitial paperwork and weight and blood pressure were wonderful and polite. They repeatly welcomed me to the office...great right? Then I was put in a room and told the Dr would be right in. I sat in there for almost an hour. Then her PA or NP, I think her name was Rupp, came into the room. She doesn't listen to you at all. She just wanted to to put me on meds that I didn't want to be put on. She repeatly was trying to get me on a medicine that has a lot of side effects. I had already had an ultrasound the month before but that was not good enough, she wants one done in her office. This was one of the worst experience in my life. By the way, the walls are really thin and you can hear all the conversions going on in the other rooms and hear the nurses in the hall talk about putting additional coding on the insurance documents in order for the insurance company to pay more. Then the check-out, they sell purse,jewerly and hair bows...just what I want to get a PAP and purse...NOT!

Do not come to this doctors office. You will waiting for years, in the waiting room, and even when you go to the back to wait for the doctor. They will even call your child for an appointment and harass them, not the primary care taker. They gave me a supply of birth control that my insurance doesn't even take!! Screw ups!

Waiting area is nice and comforting. General staff is always courteous. But Dr. is always late and rushing. Everything is fine as long as you don't ask questions. Don't expect a follow-up or a return call after serious symptoms displayed. The settings is nice but their is no protocol or professionalism displayed by the rest of the staff.

Visited this doctor's office after a pretty bad experience with another gynecologist and was very pleased with the nice doctors and staff (women only working there). Now I go to the OB-GYN a little more relaxed again... Only con is the long wait for appointments sometimes.
