Dr. david Mendelsohn and I have an excellent doctor patient relationship. In fact, since moving to Florida, I continue to see Dr. Mendelsohn as my primary care provider. Kudos to him and the staff of SCFP.

Since switching to a Novant, I received some of the best care. Dr Mendelsohn is a phenomenal doctor who truly cares, listens, researches and ensures he treats my conditions and concern with the proper treatment. This visit was no different. In addition the staff, his nurse, the labcorp specialists were all extra kind, courteous, professional, and helpful. This office is like the Chick-Fil-A of Doctor’s offices :-)
