Jesus Mendez

Doctor of Medicine – Site Medical Director

We are pleased and proud to announce the addition of Jesus Mendez, Physician, to our Medical staff.

Jesus earned his medical degree from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth In Hanover, NH. He graduated from the joint Open Door/St. Joseph Hospital Family Medicine Residency program and was selected Chief resident this past year.

Jesus moved here to join our Residency and decided to stay, thankfully. He grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jesus likes our supportive environment and close knit pod system as well as Open Door’s commitment to providing care to a rural and underserved community. He enjoyed getting to know and care for his patients during his residency at Redwood and is looking forward to building his knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of caring for patients in Willow Creek.

Jesus will be spending some of his time helping out at the FM Residency as well. His hobbies and interests are ever changing but he never gets tired of enjoying the beautiful forests, rivers, and beaches in Humboldt.

Jesus practices at Willow Creek Community Health Center.
