Don't hold your breath waiting for a call back or a reply to any request for documentation

I am a relatively new patient of Dr. Mendez. I Have yet to actually meet the doctor, as he is never in the office and you are always treated by a Physicians Asst. and not an actual Doctor. Although the service I got from Maria, the Physicians Asst. is great, the actual follow up from anyone in the office is HORRIBLE. Essentially the doctor has taken on way too many patients. I should have known this, when I opened the door to the waiting room the first time and saw about 20 people waiting. Overall the staff is very pleasant and courteous. However, I am not paying for just a courteous staff, I would like it if they did their jobs and actually sent you the information you request without having to wait and or call numerous times to get it. They certainly don't wait long to process your co-payment on your Debt card.. Overall good care, but horrible f/ by staff.

Happy to have Dr. Mendez as my neurologist.

Referred to Dr Mendez by my GP soon after arriving in TN and looking for a replacement neurologist. He was great! He reviewed my history, medications and overalll symptoms. His professional & gentle manner made me feel comfortable even though he was a stranger to me. And, doctor recognized a problem I didn't even know I had. He made the appropriate referrals and got me the additional help I needed. Doesn't get any better than that.
