My husband really liked Dr. Mendelsohn. She was thorough and attentive. What he enjoyed most about his examination was that she spoke "to" him not "at " him.

The wait was the deal breaker. They moved up the appointment then made us wait about 40 min!!! Doctor seems great but I'm not sure if I can recommend this practice.

She was very warm and made you feel comfortable from the start. She was very thorough and very efficient with time, which I appreciated as I had a lot to do that day. From other reviews many commented on wait time.Taking an early appointment when possible would be my recommendation. I had an 8:50 appointment. Also, as you leave, there is an optical boutique so you can literally do one stop shopping. Would highly recommend.

I loved this office! It's a little hard to find (the outside does not look like it would be a doctor's office). But the place is very nice! Clean, very nice looking. The best part is the staff. They were superfriendly and helpful in figuring out insurance information. Wonderful staff and wonderful doctor; would recommend to anyone and I am definitely coming back here!!!!

I really like her and think she is good but you need to be unemployed or interested in giving up your night. Every single appointment there is at least an hour wait and then you are in the room and maybethat takes 30 minutes. I really like her but you sit in a waiting room with annoyed people who are also fuming over the wait. That is stressful! You can't even call the office and ask are they running on time and try to come 'late' to your appointment. You try to miss the wait time and they cancel you out. I work less than 5 minutes away but can't go during my lunch hour because an appointment is a 2 hour ordeal. After work means you totally miss dinner e.g. a 6:30 appointment I walked out after 8.
