Dr. Monica Mentz's Ratings
Dr.Mentz is very intelligent and nice, but I would have to say her staff are horrible!! Very pushy and rush. There have been many times I waited an hour in the waiting room as well even when I had a scheduled apt!!
Dr. Mentz is extremely professional and kind in nature. I had preclamsia and was hospitalized at 34 weeks. She did an excellent job at monitoring me and ensuring an ideal delivery time for both myself and my baby. I feel privileged to have found such an amazing doctor and I would recommend over and over again.
This is a nice lady but her staff are overworked and pushy at best. I did need a c-section after all and I have to say, I think SHE did the best she could but her on call group were horribly negligent... they didn't check to see if my water broke and they ended up over stimulating me and lost my babies heart rate, which the OBGYN found and it was at 60 bpm with each contraction. I ended up going septic and anemic after and my milk didn't come down for 4-5 days as a result. I think she is a nice lady working with overworked and frankly, dangerous people with the hospital and her on-call group. I'm only going back because she is knowledgeable and she said she would send me to an OBGYN specialist by the third trimester, which is more than other doctors and midwifes have said.
I've read a lot of the reviews about Dr. Mentz being really late and always behind but I personally have never had an issue with waiting very long. I have always booked my appointments first thing in the morning and never have problems. The reason that Dr. Mentz may be taking longer than preferred is because she actually cares about her patients and their needs. Wouldn't you rather have Dr. Mentz take care of all of your needs during that visit rather than boot you out quicker than you can explain the problem? A lot of Dr's rush you in and out. Dr. Mentz actually takes the time out to make sure that you are cared for properly. I think that she is awesome! The best Dr that I have had in a VERY long time! You rock Dr. Mentz!
The front desk staff are HORRIBLE! Mean, judgemental and rude as it gets. I've never waited shorter than 30 minutes to get in. I feel like my concerns are "brushed off", and I often wonder if she just doesn't have the time to address them. She's friendly and kind, but the front desk staff and wait time usually ruin the entire day for me, so by that time it doesn't matter.
I am a maternity patient. The average waiting room wait is 30-45 minutes after your appointment time. When you go in, you feel rushed and she often forgets things. I was very concerned about the possibility of a C-section and she passed it off like it was a ridiculous concern and guess what...I ended up having to have a C-section. I gave up even seeing her in the last two weeks of my pregnancy and really hope she won't be on call for my surgery. I would rather have a stranger assist the obstetrician than her. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!! GET A MIDWIFE THIS DOCTOR IS HORRIBLE!!
Dr. Monica Mentz is a wonderful Doctor who takes the time to listen and goes the extra mile. Dr. Mentz has called me at my home in her off hours to check in on me, and has made sure I see specialist to take care of issues she can't. Dr. Mentz provides excellent service and I'm lucky to have her as my Doctor. The staff once in the office is pleasant. My only concern is why I call the office, there's no reason to ever be on hold that long. I wish this office had a second person answering the phone and we must all remember this: If Dr. Mentz is running behind and we have to wait it's all due to her giving the time 'needed' with us thus causing her to be a little behind schedule. We also must remember she's not the doing the bookings, her staff is. We must also appreciate the fact they'll get us in to see Dr. Mentz when our problem is serious and that I totally appreciate. Kudos to Dr. Mentz and her staff.
