“Best Doctor of Orthopedic Doctors I have ever seen for my knee injuries. I had some issues with my knee after having the knee replaced. Dr. Mendel explained what needed to be done to correct the issue and got me right into surgery to prevent the pain after my accident. I always looked forward to my appointments due to the very friendly staff! I will return to Dr. Mendel to have my right knee replaced next fall.”

“I am an extremist. I work hard & I play even harder. My husband and I run a bar/restaurant, so 60+hours a week on our feet is a normal workweek. I was a runner, a catcher, & did roller derby for years. Over a couple of decades, I have had five knee surgeries with Dr.Mendel on my right leg. We have gotten to be a pretty good team. I would destroy the knee, and he would fix it. I have since slowed down a bit, and I am hoping this 5th one will be the last he will have to fix on this leg as I now have a total replacement. I couldn't have chosen a better surgeon & team to repair the destruction I have done. He is always professional, always looking into the best & most efficient way to get me back on my feet again, always with understanding & always with a kind smile. It takes a lot of patience to deal with impatient patients, and that is what I am. If you are looking for the best. Look no further. Dr. Mendel and his staff are what you have been searching for. Not that I am looking forward to getting my left knee started any time soon, but I know from the way it feels & my x-rays and scans that it is only a matter of time till we get started. All I can say is..at least I won't have to do any "leg work" looking into where I will choose to have surgery & who will be my choice for a surgeon. Thank you for all that you do, and I appreciate all of you.”

The physical therapy team was great, and that is extremely important on the road to recovery.”
