“My outlook on care is to treat each of my patients as though they are part of my family. I feel proud when they are doing their very best, and I worry as a parent would when they are at their worst. I seek to create trusting relationships with my patients and their families. Everyone is a VIP, in my opinion.”

Mendoza is a board-certified pediatric primary care nurse practitioner specializing in pulmonary medicine. She has clinical interests in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma, patients with tracheostomy who may or may not require mechanical ventilation, bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) (a chronic lung disease diagnosed in newborns), and neuromuscular disorders.
