Dr. Mendoza is amazing. I am truly grateful that I decided to change physicians and came to Vulcan Pain Management last year. Dr. Mendoza used many different methods to evaluate every aspect of my physical conditions so that he was able to get a comprehensive understanding of the weaknesses of my body, the strengths, and how I was affected by or managing both. He set out a plan and, I was a little skeptical at first, but I quickly realized that Dr. Mendoza is so skilled at what he does - like the injection intervention - that his techniques started to make improvements. I then realized I could trust Dr. Mendoza completely with my treatment and I could just follow his suggestions without any worry or any questions (thought I did have plenty in the beginning: which he was fully willing to answer and help me understand not just what we were doing but why). So many doctor's offices today have lost that type of doctor patient relationship that is based on trust and the physician's true empathy and concern for the patient's well-being. It's easy to see Dr. Mendoza has never lost what I'm guessing drove him to pursue a medical career as a physician. When we seek medical treatment, we are in a sense entrusting our health with the provider and asking for help. You either get McDonald's or Walmart type of customer service, or you get four star, first class treatment. It's funny to compare it that way, but it's true. And Dr. Mendoza provides first class treatment. He's a great doctor, he cares how you're doing and wants to help, he listens to your opinions and feelings and actually considers your input when you're making decisions about steps in treatment together, and I feel like he has my best interest at heart. P.S. He also has an awesome technique during injections that make them extremely manageable and I've never seen it with any doctor before. Thank you Dr. Mendoza, for everything you do.
