13/05/14 5 5 5 5 When I decided I needed a new oncologist, Dr. Mena walked though the doors at St. Joseph Hospital. People were coming up to me and saying how lucky I was to get him as my doctor. I could not agree more. He was so kind, caring and understanding. Medically, I felt comfortable and safe even if I had questions or other paths to explore. He is funny and just makes life better. How great is that when you are a cancer patient!! After his birthday, I told one of his nurses I hoped he lived to 140 years old and she said, "Oh, we all hope for that!" You will get high quality care from an A+ doctor. My wish was granted!  Respond

19/11/12 5 5 5 5 the staff is very sharp especially, when seeing the volume of patients. My experience is this: Dr. Mena saved my life. His staff helped me find outside sources to help me pay for my treatments. His billing dept. was kind and understanding. He worked with me as I was not insured and when I had insurance, I was under insured. He is a God and so is his office manager, Jodi Selman. She is a Goddess. And Carlos can find a vein where there is nothing. Love them all. I am so thankful. So thankful. So thankful.  Respond
