I was referred to Dr. M. by my orthopedist. He carefully assessed my condition, tried non-operative options, and when they failed performed surgery. He was there at every step and informed me of the risks and what to expect before surgery. Fortunately I healed without problems but was aware of what could go right or wrong. Definitely recommend.

Just be careful that he doesn't charge you what he didn't perform. I just went one time in order to figure it out.

Dr. Sam was down to earth and explained everything to me in terms a lay person could understand. He helped with a problem that others could not. Good doctor and office.

Love Dr. Mendicino and can't sing his praises enough. I have come in to see him for a few issues such as heel pain and broken toe and each time it is a pleasure. He takes the time to really listen to you instead of looking at your chart and rushing you out the door like most doctors which is why I recommended him to my mom. She agrees if you need the best of the best look no further then Dr. Mendo, you won't be disappointed.

I injured myself while running and searched for a doctor who wasn't far and could see me soon. I came across Dr. Sam and so glad I did! He was wonderful, very friendly and offered tips of runner stretches I could do to avoid further injury. Cross my fingers I won't have a reason to see him but if I should will book immediately! Thank you for everything

Dr. Mendicino was very professional and personable which put me at great ease. He took the time to explain my condition and ways to prevent the strain I placed on my foot due to daily activities. A good friend referred him, however I still wanted to do my own research and was blown away by his credentials. Although there are other podiatrists in my area it was well worth the drive to see Dr. Mendicino! I will certainly see him again for future foot and ankle injuries.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Mendicino 's office. I was referred to him by another podiatrist because of complications of a surgery performed by someone else. I had been in pain for years. Dr. Mendicino was straight forward, to the point, and honest about correcting my problem. After explaining the risk I had surgery and now my pain is gone. His entire staff was helpful and supportive and would recommend him/them highly.

with such great knowledge, you would think he would have a better support team,, his nurse is so bad ,,always rushing, you on and off the x-ray machine,, almost pushing you into the next room ,,and they will not bring themselves to clip you toe nails while there,,, is that not part of foot and ankle service. while he explained every thing , he would not take any comments that were negative of his work.. he needs to review his work ethics toward his job and patients... come back to earth and remember that the people need to be able to talk to their doctor when a problem and not use his nurse to block him from talking to them... no matter what...

The office staff when I called never kept me on hold and I had an appointment within 2 days. Dr. Mendo (what people call him) did a second opinion and had me hold off surgery and now Iam better. Glad I went!
