Ratings for Dr. Lisa M. Mendonza
Staff - when calling to make an appt. they have always been rude to me. "Id like to make an appt to see Dr. Mendonza" "Well, whats wrong with you?". Twice they have told me an appointment time, ie, 12:30, when the doctor has thought my appt. was at 12:00 or 11:30... twice. NOT MY MISTAKE. Then I was scolded by the doctor... (?? I felt like I was in HS and being scolded for being late to class?? rude and inappropriate?) So yes, shes punctual. And very into punctuality.. .. When discussing concerns she constantly nods her head and says "mmhmm," or "ok, ok, ok," and I just feel HURRIED.... I wonder if she can hear 50% of what im saying over all of her rude "mmhmm"ing, which just makes me feel like shes not listening
Doctor has a great bedside manner, she takes all the time necessary to answer questions, never rushes you out the door, will perform routine procedures a nurse can do to keep in touch with patient and procedures. In a rare instance when follow up or research was required, she called me at home in the evening to deliver results and or information. Gives you copies of blood work, test results etc. explains the results and anything out of normal ranges that may require follow up. She consults her records and asks questions about previous visit issues. She is insightful and offers advise on preventative measures to avoid future potential health problems. She has a great attitude and is a refreshing addition to the medical profession.
This MD wanted to medicate me for diabetes because I am high risk for developing it later in life. She wanted to use this med as "preventative care" and I would be required to be on it every day for the rest of my life...for a condition I DONT have. My insulin levels were well within the normal range.
