He offers care for hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol. Dr. Mendelsohn’s goal is to help patients lead healthier lives. Outside of work, Dr. Mendelsohn stays active by hiking and snowboarding. He also enjoys traveling and taking pictures of his travels, especially when his wife comes with him.
