Dr. Mencio is superb!
Patient | January 4, 2017

while my appointment didn't need much time or explanation I couldn't be happier with the care we have been provided! I would highly recommend Dr. Mencio to anyone that needed his services
Patient | January 2, 2017

We waited two hours to see the dr. Our visit with him was 15 mins., with the last 5 minutes feeling rushed. The explanations he gave regarding my 3 year old were sometimes conflicting. For example "x" treatment doesn't work, then 5 mins. later "we will do x treatment".

I could not be happier with Dr. Mencio. My son is 7 & has been a patient of Dr. Mencio for 6 years. He's laughed with me, cried with me, & answered all my many questions. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

Talked to his interns as much as me, spoke to me with door open actually standing in the hallway. Whatever happened to HIPAA, bedside manner or just common courtesy?

We think Dr. Mencio is the best at what he does. We tell everyone we know how great he is with our little girl.

I have high confidence in the skill and expertise of this care provider based on reputation. However, this provider is usually rushed and often offers blanket explanations. We have learned to be very assertive when expressing particular concerns to this provider in order to be taken seriously. With this approach, we have gotten better results.

Dr. Mencio is great!
Patient | September 8, 2016

All our questions and concerns were explained. Husband went in thinking worse cases scenario, surgery. Happy that surgery was not needed.

Dr. Mencio is a wonderful provider. He took extra time to talk to me and assess my daughter's scoliosis. He performed my scoliosis surgery 17 years ago, and I fully trust he is an expert.

Dr. Mencio was great! Surgical procedure of the whole surgery staff is excellent!
Patient | June 6, 2016

Dr Mencio is ranked the best in our area but is so busy he does not have the time to give his patients what they need!
