Biography

Dr. Mendelson is a neurologist and palliative care physician. The goals of Palliative Medicine are to provide relief from the symptoms and stress of serious illness and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Dr. Mendelson recognizes that each patient has their own unique story, goals, and values. She helps prioritize what is most important to patients and collaborates with all of the specialties within Compass to align the medical plan with patient’s goals. Her training in neurology and palliative medicine also gives her the expertise to manage symptoms so that patients can enjoy a better quality of life.

Outside of work, Dr. Mendelson enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband and her dog. She also loves film photography and feels privileged to bear witness to the happy and often bittersweet moments in people’s lives, both as a physician and photographer.
