Specialties

Dr. Herbert Mendelson has the following 2 specialties

  • Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

    An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
    Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
    Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.

Bad Surgery

Surgery was done after a long wait in hospital I wasn't told about classes before surgery. The surgery was not done well. When I reported the pain after 3Months I was told everything was perfect and it was my imagination. I waited to see if it would get better, after 2years the knee is still swollen and painful. New surgery is required to fix problems.Rating should be1/2.

Awful Doctor...dishonest

Dr. Mendelson saw me after an accident at work. He kept telling me that I was fine as I continued to deteriorate and lost the use of my right leg. My primary doctor finally rushed me to the hospital on a visit to find that I needed emergency spine surgery. My husband saw him on a work comp case and he told him he was fine also. My husband needed cervical surgery and almost lost the use of his left arm. I went back to see him years later as a consult. He told me he that maybe I needed surgery, he would keep our visit confidential and I paid out of my own pocket... and then when the opposing counsel asked for my records, he reported that I was fine. Don't trust this guy, especially if it is workers comp.
