About Michael Mendelson, M.D.
Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
My mentor, Hyman Zimmerman, MD at George Washington University, inspired me to pursue a career in gastroenterology. At the time I entered medical school, Dr. Zimmerman was a well recognized hepatologist doing clinical research in liver disease. He introduced me to exciting new advances in infectious and drug-induced liver toxicity.
Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?
I have great interest in the new modalities of treatment for inflammatory bowel disease and infectious liver disease.
Where did you study?
Undergrad: Long Island University, Masters: Rutgers University, Medical School, Internship and Residency: George Washington University, Gastroenterology Fellowship: University of Colorado.
What certifications do you hold?
Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology.
What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?
Sailing has been a passion of mine ever since I was introduced to it during my time in DC, when I had access to the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. When I’m not sailing, my wife and I are avid patrons of the arts. We enjoy the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Dallas and Kimball Art Museums. In addition to that, we love to travel. The best excursions are those when all of our children and grandchildren can be together.
Do you have any special honors or recognition in your medical career that you would like to share?
In 1970, I was inducted as a member of Smith Reed Russell Honor Society. Also, after my fellowship training, I entered the United States Air Force and was transferred to Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth. There, I was promoted to Major and served as Chief of Gastroenterology from 1976 – 1979.

Dr. Mendelson and his team were great during my routine procedure, everything went smooth and they took all the necessary steps to keep everyone safe and healthy. Dr. Mendelson is kind and a great listener, which is rare to find these days
While an uncomfortable procedure, Dr Mendelson and his team provide excellent care for their patients !
Last week was my 2nd time to be seen by Dr. Mendelson. He is compassionate, professional and highly knowledgeable. Some of his staff are a bit blunt, but it is understandable when working with the public nowdays. I suppose if you come across as "no nonsense" people will not be inclined to push you around.
I and my wife have been patients of Dr. Mendelson for many years. As we age it seems that there are more changes happening in our bodies than when we were younger. I am now 68 years of age, and have been seeing Dr. Mendelson since I was 55. He takes the worrying out of aging by being thorough and complete. I would highly recommend Dr. Mendelson for your needs, too.
I highly recommend Dr. Michael Mendelson, MD. He has taken very good care of me for years.
