Your Health. His Mission.
Dr. David Mendelsohn has been a Family Medicine physician since 2002, focusing mostly on preventative medicine, and managing common disease states such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, depression/anxiety, and musculoskeletal injuries. He graduated from the University of Rochester, with a double major in Biology and Psychology, and a minor in Ancient Civilizations. Dr. Mendelsohn went on to graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine.
It was his love of clinical rotations that made him realize that his calling was Family Medicine. He underwent residency training at Atrium Health in Charlotte, NC and this is also where he fell for fellow resident, the future Dr. Jessica Mendelsohn.
Upon completing his training, he ended up joining a brand new practice with Novant Health in the Steele Creek area of Charlotte. While always grateful for the leadership experience, this is also where Dr. Dave fully recognized the challenges of trying to provide or receive medical care when a person is part of a large system. He constantly found himself wishing he had more time with patients both in the office and in between visits through email or phone calls. Dr. Dave views the patient/doctor relationship as a team relationship and therefore wants to make sure his “teammates” know as much as they can about their own bodies and illnesses.
When he is not providing patient care, he loves spending time with his two boys and his wife (and now boss) Dr. Jessica Mendelsohn. You can also find him either cheering for the Tar Heels and Panthers or on the lake fishing.
