Dr. Brenda is excellent. Always a pleasure to see and always answers my questions to the fullest extent.
The doctor is excellent! she really takes the time to talk to my child. She answers all our questions.
quick didn't have to wait long
Love this doctor!! Excellent care and bedside manner.
We couldn't have had a better experience. As a nervous mom, she really listened and took time with us listening to all of our concerns and answering questions. She was so kind and caring towards our daughter and she definitely helped our daughter feel less anxious about the procedures.
I really like this doctor! she is so nice and very easy to talk to!
Dr. Brenda was fantastic with my child. She spent considerable time with her, gave actionable information my daughter heard and has been following in the days since our appointment. She was kind and knowledgeable, one of the best experiences I've had with a doctor.
This provider is without a doubt our favorite out of all the doctors we see. takes her time and explains everything so that not only do the parents understand it but that the child understands it as well. You know she cares!!!
I was very nervous about bringing my newborn in for all the cardiology testing. Everyone who worked with us were friendly, caring, professional and helped my baby and I to have a positive experience.
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I felt so much better after seeing Dr. Mendizibal. She was personable, friendly, and lovely to work with.
It was his first visit with the doctor. She took her time to make him & us feel welcome. She was very good at asking my teenage son questions first then follow up with questions to with us.
Terrible experience. The doctor refused to see my child because she said we need to reschedule with a different department. When I refused and wanted to be seen since I was already there she would not see my child.
she always takes time to explain even the smallest things to my son in ways that even at 6 years old he can understand. she's very compassionate.
Our son found out he was one of 3 students to receive the highest physical fitness award at school, which was to be given out at the time of his scheduled appointment with Dr. Mendizabal. We called Dr. M.'s office and she was happy to adjust her schedule at the last minute so he could both keep his appointment and receive his award. We really appreciate her support of our son! Dr. Mendizabal is the best!
I was very pleased with everyone in the office that day. They were very nice,helpful,and made us feel at ease.
This care provider is always very positive and encouraging.
I really appreciated the doctor's friendliness and willingness to explain her findings. She was easy to understand and very helpful. We had a very pleasant experience and would definitely recommend this doctor to anyone who needs a cardiologist.
She was very kind, helpful and answered all of my questions. Excellent provider.
I had taken Harmony for a second opinion. NEVER got it, because this doctor would not do her own testing!!!! she went of the other facility information!!! then said send me the disc from the other facility and if I see anything I'll let you know!!!! seriously!!! that is not a second opinion at all!!!
She was AMAZING. Took that time to talk to not only me but my 13 year old daughter. Explained everything and answered all our questions. If you need a Pediatric Cardiologist she's 100% your Doctor.
she was fabulous, very knowledgeable in her field
She was thorough, thoughtful, knowledgeable and extremely patient and compassionate with our child.
My has seen this provider twice so far, and has had NO bad experiences.
exceptional care and coordination. the provider was very nice and listened to everything we had to say. addressed all concerns and put us at ease. provided clear and easy instructions at discharge.
Dr. Mendizabal is excellent with children! Very are very pleased we have her as our Son's doctor. Also, the gentleman who does the heart sonograph and EKG is wonderful! He made us feel welcome, and explained the procedures to us as parents in a way that we could understand.
The nurse practitioner and physician were wonderful. We are blessed we do not need any further follow up care with cardiology but are also so thrilled with how caring and compassionate they were, as well as, so attentive and friendly to our daughter and acknowledge her sister as well. Thank you!
wait time to see the provider is longer. But the medical student shadowing the provider asked all related questions and updated the provider
wait time was absolutely ridiculous for a 2 yr old. we were taken back to the room very quickly but waited nearly an hour for an ekg.
It was a good experience with the doctor. We were treated with respect.
Every visit with Dr. Brenda is perfect. We would not want our child under another's care. Her care and personal touch with our daughter is touching.
Everyone was amazing with our son and helped keep us at ease during the whole process.
The Dr spent plenty of time with my daughter and I to discuss the problem that we were seeing her for. The nurse was excellent! She calmed my daughter's fears of the unknown because she was seeing a Dr that she had never seen before.
The visit was ok. I felt there would be a more thorough assessment. We were given another 24 hour monitor, told to increase salt intake, even though we have no idea if she is low on sodium, and given an order for thyroid levels. I would have preferred to run a full CBC, BMP, Mag and Thyroid again since there were abnormalities on her previous blood work and since claims were made that she needed more salt.
Wonderful office experience. Dr Brenda was fantastic and the office staff was great, very accommodating.
I really liked this doctor a lot. She was incredibly friendly.
Dr. Mendizibal was wonderful. She treated our son like he was her only patient. She explained everything in a way he could understand, and made sure we all were comfortable with the treatment plan. She was very reassuring about his condition, treatment and prognosis.
The doctor and ultrasound tech were very professional and established good rapport with my son.
Dr was very easy to understand and very thorough. seemed to have a genuine interest in my sons health.
Dr. Mendizabel is personable and easy to talk with. she always addresses my child first and I appreciate that she recognizes he is the patient and talks to him first.

Our experience with Dr. Brenda Mendizabal was excellent. She has a wonderful bedside manner. She relays information in a confident and trust-worthy manner while also offering comfort and compassion. That's sometimes a rare mix!

We feel blessed to be with Dr. Brenda, anyone would be. She is simply the best. We just love her; th
Dr. Mendizabal was really kind and made my son feel at ease. (He was nervous about being there). She was wonderful and we appreciate her expertise and advice. We are looking forward to helping him work on the goals that she set for him and to get the recommended f/u care from an other provider to improve his condition.
she was terrific and although we had to wait several months for a consultation it was worth it.
We were very impressed with Dr. Mandizabel. She made our 16 year old daughter, who was anxious about the visit, feel at ease.
We had a great experience with the provider. She was extremely nice, explained his test results and asked questions to be sure there was nothing that we were concerned about with his heart health.
