"Caring, compassionate approach"

Dr. Menezes is an extremely intelligent, bright doctor with an amazing ability to recall information about me and my complex cases. What I love most about her is her caring, compassionate approach. She is willing to talk to me on my level. I thank God she is there for me.

"Very fortunate to have found Dr. Menezes"

Dr. Menezes is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met. Even though this was my first time to visit her, she explained everything she was doing and even when I called a day later to ask a question she called me back. I have told several people about her already and I would highly recommend her to anyone. It is not often that you find a doctor that actually cares about their patients. I am so very fortunate to have found Dr. Menezes and this office.


Dr. Menezes is wonderful! I have sent my mom to her as well. She is a wonderful addition to the staff. Very knowledgeable. Thorough. A++
