About Dr. Mendel

An Atlanta native, Dr. Mendel is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, where he received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry. He then received his medicaldegree from the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. While there, he was awarded a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Fellowship, allowing him to spend a year studying immunology at the Emory Transplant Center. Dr. Mendel continued at the university to complete his internship and residency in internal medicine, as well as a fellowship in gastroenterology. During that time, he also served as a research fellow for Emory’s Division of Digestive Diseases where he focused on immune function within the liver for the university’s vaccine and transplant centers. 

Dr. Mendel has been a frequent presenter at national conferences, including the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases’ annual meeting and the American College of Gastroenterology. He has been published in the American Journal of Transplantation and has co-authored a textbook chapter on liver disease in a physician review guide for the gastroenterology board exam.

In addition to general gastroenterology, Dr. Mendel has a special interest in liver disease and inflammatory bowel disease.
