About Me

Carol Mendez, MD is a member of Summit Medical Group's Family Medicine team. Dr. Mendez became a doctor to pursue her goals of delivering lifelong healing and developing therapeutic relationships with individual patients and their families. She provides the full spectrum of care to children and adults, with a special focus on obstetrical and reproductive health care. She is trained to provide a broad spectrum of maternal-child health and works alongside Summit Medical Group obstetrics colleagues to care for patients throughout their entire pregnancy.

Dr. Mendez greatly enjoys providing care for lifechanging conditions such as pregnancy, reproductive health, chronic diseases and preventive care. She places special emphasis on prenatal care because she believes family medicine should be “one stop shopping” for pregnant patients. “Being able to care for an entire family is convenient and wholistic, and it gives me a full understanding of all the other aspects of a person’s life that could affect their health,” she says. “Our team partners with patients to ensure the best possible health outcomes for them and their families. And with evening and weekend hours, we ensure access when they need it,” she adds.

When Dr. Mendez is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, exercising and organizing her home.
