I felt overlooked and rushed. The staff was unorganized and the Doctor seemed nonchalant about everything. DO NOT GO HERE! I had to harass them to even follow up with me and on top of that, my toe has been broken for over 4 months!

Diagnosis provided in very understandable terms along with interim recommended solution. - Check-in paperwork should be revised for those having registered via ZocDoc to eliminate redundancy.

Awful. Was kept waiting for an hour and a half as the zoc doc schedule had not synced with the main schedule. Infuriating and though the receptionist was very nice and apologetic the doctor was curt, borderline rude and had the attitude of 'get over it'. He had a conference call he had scheduled. Well so did I! He took his but I had to miss mine. I should have walked out but had driven for half an hour to get there.

This was my first visit, I just took a chance with google to find a Foot Dr and went with them, did everything online, also have never done, it worked out great and hope my followup will show improvement from today.

I was impressed with him overall. This was the second podiatrist I've seen in the last year for the same issue; wasn't particularly impressed with the first, which is why I sought out the second. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and optimistic about the prospect for improvement, all of which were significant improvements over my previous experience (at another foot center).

Dr. Mendelsohn operated on my foot last November. In addition to his esteemed professional reputation, we found him to be very personable, caring, and unassuming - quite a rare quality for such a reputable professional! These qualities trump the few administrative hiccups , especially since Dr. Mendelsohn personally intervened to resolve them to our complete satisfaction. We highly recommend his service!

This was by far the worst doctors visit I have ever had. His bedside manner is atrocious, and it was clear that my questions were something that he did not want to take the time or effort to answer. He was pushy with expensive purchases and was unable to help explain why I would need the items. After leaving the appointment I literally sat and cried in my car. I will NOT be going back to see dr. Mendelsohn and will actively tell others to avoid his service as well. Horrible experience.

I was very pleased with my visit. Dr. Mendelsohn. He listened to my concerns and has designed a plan of action to figure out my condition. I'm about 30 miles from the office but I feel it was well worth the trip.

Booking the appointment was easy and simple. The front office staff were excellent. The procedure was preformed to satisfaction, however the Doctor's "bedside" manner was inappropriate and made me feel uncomfortable. I will not return.

Dr. Mendelsohn is not a typical specialist. He doesn't just treat one area of the body that is his concentration. He treats the whole patient. I am thankful I found Dr. Mendelsohn, what I thought was just sore ankles from running turned out to me so much more, and now I'm being treated by the right kind of doctor. Thanks Dr. Mendelsohn!

Dr. Medelsohn was extremly thorough. He conducted several tests to try to conclude what my issue was. He didn't seem rushed, inpatient or absent. He talked me through what he would do, why and provided me feedback. He ordered additional test, and suprisingly when I looked at the order for bloodwork, he included a test for Lyme disease - in the back of my mind, I also wondered if this could be the cause of so much of my pain. Time will tell, but he was a very polite and professional physician.

The wait to see the Dr. was long. First in the waiting room and then much longer in the room. He came in and saw me briefly, walked out, back in again, asked someone to come in and take my x-ray, called to his assistants from the room to get the information he needed. He was using an IPAD which seems sophisticated but he could not find the info on it making the process longer. I am not sure i trusted his advice 100% so I will go get a second opinion

Impressed with the amount of digital integration in the office. X-rays on iPad, portable sonogram, etc. He initially gave me his diagnosis without much if any explanation, which was nice as many times you get inundated with info. He also happily answered my questions and provided good explanations.
