The doctor was great. Her staff is horrible! The nurse didn't know how to properly weigh me. I told her thatthe number she said wasn't correct. She had to have the doctor come and she was more than 25 lbs off! Receptionists are rude, mumble and have no manners on the phone. They continuously forgot to send my prescription to the pharmacy so I had to had hold them the entire time.

I was unable to have a pregnancy test done, and my physical was not conpleted either. I have to purchase an at home pregnancy test and visit a different clinic or physician to have my physical completed, although the nurse initially said it would be done today at my visit.

I would like to have heard if she had any other medication suggestions rather than just prescribing the one I mentioned. I also noted when scheduling and to the nurse at the appointment about a possible infection which the doctor never addressed.

Because it was a first visit, there was paperwork to fill out. Otherwise, I was seen in a timely manner. The receptionist & Dr. were great. The Dr was familiar with the reason I had to change family docs. She had spoken to my previous one. Professional, yet friendly and courteous! I have several health issues & need to be able to communicate with my physician. There’s no problem there!

I was very pleased at with the apprentice of the office and the service I received while checking in. The receptionist was great! The nurse that worked along side of the doctor was very professional and very helpful. After waiting 45 minutes to finally see the doctor (they weren’t many patients there). She completely ignored my pain, didn’t seem to care much about what I was saying and recommend that I come back for another appointment to figure it out. Absolutely nothing was achieved at this appointment. I am convinced that she is stalling to get more visits out of us. I will not be going back despite the great bedside manner of all the other.

Where to even begin....she barely spent 10 minutes with me and I felt judged and felt she wasnt really listening to the issues i was presenting. I got a blood test done and had to call them to ask them for my results and no other feedback.

I was extremely disappointed with my experience here. I came as a new patient, for an annual checkup, and wanted feedback about specific issues I had been having. It appeared as if the doctor did not care about my past medical history and minimized my concerns surrounding a recent injury. Despite my explaining how severe the injury was, it's relation to family history, and concern about root causes, the doctor did not even look at or touch the affected area. She spent less than 10 minutes with me, took my temperature, listened to my lungs, and left. I have other medical conditions that require routine bloodwork that she did not ask about. I had to ask her if it was appropriate for me to receive bloodwork. I felt rushed and dismissed. I am on multiple medications for the issues I was presenting to her with and was hoping to transfer my prescriptions and care to this provider, since I just moved to the area. I now know that my concerns and diagnoses will not be taken seriously at this provider and will not return.

This knowledgeable, professional doctor has a heart of compassion and love for her patients. Her office is well run, very seldom do I have to wait more than a couple minutes to see her. The staff is professional and polite. The office plant is very clean and ordered and pleasantly decorated. Parking is very convenient.

Dr. Mendis was excellent at exploring various possibilities for my daughter's illness. She has ordered several lab tests. We feel confident that she will help us to discover what the illness is that my daughter is enduring. On the personal side, she is very friendly and kind and we felt that she was interested in helping us.
