I haven't been to the doctor in a while so not sure what to expect. Everyone in the office was very nice and helpful. Dr. was engaging and polite. Definitely recommend her!
After losing my previous PCP I had my first visit with Dr. Mendis and I was pleasantly surprised on my experience. The office was immaculate, the staff was friendly and attentive. Dr. Mendis has a great bedside manner and was very thorough in her examination. She came across as genuinely caring for your health and makes sure you receive the best care.
She was very nice and understanding

This was my first appointment and I was impressed with Dr. Mendis' personal care, thorough exam, and recommendations. I did not feel rushed at all. I was also impressed with the staff's friendliness and work.

Dr. Mendis is an excellent doctor. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good primary care physician.
I love that she is thinking outside of the box to when addressing my health concerns.
Dr Mendis was a very nice doctor who took her time with me making sure I didn't have any questions. The other ladies working there were also very nice. No wait time at all.
Her staff is very friendly and professional, and they treat you with respect. The Dr. listened and was conscious of my concerns / wants for my health. She was caring, yet the appointment did not take forever, about 30 mins. Great experience!
In and out! Easy and very friendly!!
Everything felt rather rushed and the nurse seemed distant. I felt uncomfortable the entire time and felt uninformed.
Dr. Mendis is nice overall, but I felt rushed during my appointment. She doesn't take time to ask if you have any questions or if what she says/suggests makes sense and she seems to be in a hurry to get what you need done and then just take the next patient. I feel like it's fake compassion coming from her.
Very positive experience. Staff was warm and welcoming.
Pleasant environment, friendly staff, was in and out in under a half hour and felt better quicky with treatment plan.
Seemed judgemental in tone when explaining why I was seeing her.
Dr Mendis is a great doctor with professionalism and care.
She is courteous and very helpful.
Always seen right away. Staff and doctor are warm, friendly, and knowledgeable.
It went well, I love Dr. Mendis. She is very understanding and kind.
I have ADHD and she suggested a mental health doctor instead of prescribing the medication I have been on for 4+ years. I agree that medicine is not the best thin to be on for an extended period of time but there are no short term solutions at the moment. I felt kind of insulting and slightly alarming that she wouldn't even think about writing that script or requesting my medical history to see when and why my previous dr prescribed it to me.
Excellent visit... Dr. Mendis gives outstanding care and information.
She was very friendly as was the office staff. She listened and addressed my issues. The office staff was also very personable.
Dr. Mendis is very caring and takes time with you to understand your reasons for coming in. She is very proficient and goes over your medical records to be sure that you are on track for any tests or annual check-ups! This care is hard to come by! Thanks so much for providing quality care!!
Scheduled an appointment based on the rave reviews here. They were right - doctor and staff were all really friendly and helpful. Didn't feel rushed at all, I'm glad I went.
My lab results were given to me 3 weeks after my visit, I was told to expect them within a few days.
Thank you Dr Mendis for taking your time to talk with my daughter and me. We appreciate your thorough input and caring spirit toward your patients. We will recommend you to our family and friends.
Very good doctor. Friendly, alert, conscientious, and a nice person.
The Best Doctor I have ever met!!!!
This is my third visit with Dr. Mendis and, as expected, it went smoothly and wonderfully. She is a very warm and respectful physician who took the time to listen to my concerns and made sure she was updated on every aspect of my condition between my last visit and my current visit. Would highly recommend!!
I am very pleased! I couldn't have asked for better service!!!
I like this doctor she cares about her patients
Very pleasant and very professional. She took the time to listen to my issues when my primary pcp didn't have the time.
I was very impressed with the medical attention and consult I received. Moreover, very impressed that my past medical records were available for us to discuss. And that the Doctor had the microbiology analysis (Moraxella Catarrhalis) on hand to discuss with me. Also, the office is beautiful...clean...new furniture. I am happy to say that Dr. Mendis is my Primary Care Doc. Thank you so much.
We are satisfied with chandra mendis.she listen our words with patience.
The office staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Mendis has a terrific bedside manner. Always pleasant and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Dr. Mendis.
Good..She was Friendly..
This was my first time using ZocDoc and I have to say I'm very pleased! My appointment began less than thirty minutes after I entered the building (I'm a new patient so I had some paperwork to fill out so I'm sure it would have been sooner otherwise). Dr. Mendis has her own practice in a very clean and tidy clinic. She was very attentive to my issues and efficiently completed my exam. Very pleasant doctor indeed! I just moved to the area and her practice is fifteen minutes away from my workplace so I think I will keep coming back!
Dr. Mendis is the greatest. She listens and takes the time to actually hear what you are saying. As an older patient this is so important to me at a time of life that one feels that they have become "invisible". I followed her from her last practice and have never regretted it.
After explaining to her about my situation she didn't give me any medications I needed and interrogated me and inspected my pill bottle and said she'd call my pharmacy etc as tho I was a drug addict
She is friendly and was pretty quick with the appointment. She asked a lot of questions, but she was a little bit less thorough then I would've liked. She gave me a script for blood work, but the appointment was still a little bit less thorough then i expected. I think I would've been more relieved if she would've talked to me more about my symptoms. I was the only patient at this office today.
She is so sweet!! so nice as a doctor.
Very professional and very detailed. She has patience to listen and give advice which is very hard to find those days. I am very impressed and pleased with my visit.
Dr. Mendis was great as always. Goes the extra mile to make sure all issues at covered.
Dr. Mendis is always friendly, professional and concerned about my health issues. She always finds a way to ease my worries and is proactive about my health treatments. Her staff is also very professional and empathetic, especially Megan, her nurse assistant.
She was very nice .. Spend time going over my medical history ...and was very helpful..I will continue with her
I had a good visit with Dr Mendis. She listened to my complaints and was able to diagnosis my ailment. Very pleasant.
Not a doctor for me. She was very impersonal and she seemed to rush me. She did not seem very friendly and her facial expression was proof of irritation. She left to go to another patient without wrapping up her visit with me with a simple goodbye or any advice. I do not see myself going back to this doctor. Her and her staff made me very uncomfortable and unsatisfied. I am not sure if it is because I am a young woman of color but the vibe lacked luster. NEVER AGAIN!
Have known Dr. Mendis for quite some time. I was always impressed with her. When my family doctor's office of 20 years made a mistake with my meds due to an allergy, that was what I needed to switch. I've been happy ever since! She has my sugars under control, much better than my old family doc did. She's great and a wonderful person to boot!
Everybody was friendly and professional. Office clean and bright.
I got a good feeling from her, she cares and that's what important to me.
She was so nice, and explained everything that she was doing to make me feel comfortable.
Very professional staff. Dr. Me dis addressed the issue I came to discuss as well as brought other concerns up. Very comprehensive service all around.
Great doctor and a great office. Would recommend to a friend.
It was my 17-yr-old daughter who saw Dr. Mendis and she really liked her a lot. We'll return to this doctor for sure.
Very pleasant and approachable physician and staff. Would recommend
