Philosophy of Care

As a child, I often accompanied my grandmother (who was a traditional midwife) on visits to patients and was fascinated by her work and passion. That’s why I became an OB-GYN.

Every time I deliver a baby, I’m holding the future in my hands, and no matter what time of day it happens, it brings me great joy. It’s the most precious privilege a physician can have.

Interests

Medical Interests

I like to make sure my patients understand and access their electronic medical records so they’re in control of their own health destiny. Our patients can look at their bills and test results, or communicate with us anytime they wish. On the flip side, it makes it easy for me to see their treatment history with multiple providers instead of sifting through a mountain of paper.

Personal Interests

I particularly love the strong family values I find in my community, so I love meeting new people here. I also enjoy spending time near the water when I can.

Patient Ratings and Comments

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I've had the worst experience with doctors during this pregnancy. Until Dr M, I was belittled and criticized and thanks to him accepting me so late in the pregnancy I am able to finish it out with dignity and respect and that is invaluable. I just wanted to enjoy my pregnancy and he gave that back to me.

Dr. Mvendura has been an exceptional health care provider. When I first saw him, I had never had a women's exam and was quite nervous because of various reasons. I had many questions and concerns [...] and he went above and beyond my expectations. [...] I left feeling comforted as well as respected and cared for. Dr. Mvendura is truly an exceptional health care provider, and I will be ever grateful for his care and compassion for me in my time of need.

I'm over 60 years old, I've had four children and have had some really wonderful physicians over the years. I believe Dr. M is among the best I have had. He communicated so thoroughly and respectfully, asking questions and being careful to describe every aspect of the procedure, assuring my comfort and understanding. I'm so used to being hustled though appointments that it really was a pleasant experience. I will recommend him to others without reservation.
