- Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I have been seeing Dr. Mendizabal for quite some time. I have to disagree with the previous reviews. Anytime I was seen by him there was no problem, he was courteous, kind, and answered my questions. I told him my concerns and he understood. As far as his bedside manner, I find nothing wrong with it, he is pleasant and spends enough time with me, I ask about my previous blood tests and he is willing to explain exactly what they mean, so this way I have a better understanding myself. I would recommend this doctor he has helped me with my thyroid, which no other doctor would, they didn't believe I even had a thyroid problem. It didn't take much convincing him only a simple blood test. I will forever be grateful for his faith in me and my diagnosis.
He's OLD & SENILE. i've been with him for quite a few years now, and over the years i can see he's demise. i was scheduled for blood work & he felt i should have it done in his building. Telling me that there's no copay, afterwhich; i see that i was charged. i asked him about it and he said that i was lying & being to upset him.Aside from that, he never really told me anything beneficial to my diabetic health. i was told more about meds i should be taking from united health care nurses over the phone then any other visit with him. the nurse would ask me questions and suggest meds for it. i'd ask him about it on the next visit and he'd say "yes that's a good med" & ask how did i learn about it. then write a prescription for it.there's really not enough room or time to explain how "BAD" he really is.
Unfortunately, there was misinformation. Some insurance plans charge patients two co-pays if the laboratory tests are performed within the group. I was not aware of the second payment due. I apologize sincerely
Unfortunately, this doctor will not be there for you when you are sick. He does not want to spend enough time talking about your concerns especially when over the phone. He will tell you to set an appointment if you want all your questions answered. He also does not give a full explanation of why you are sick. Very poor bedside manner....you're just going to be a number to him. Do not choose this doctor.
