Dr. Mensink was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and attended medical school in Edmonton, Alberta, at one of Canada’s top ranked schools. He then moved quickly into a Family Practice Residency at Florida Hospital in Orlando, Florida, where he received his certification and license in Family Medicine.

He spent approximately 30,000 hours providing Emergency Room Medicine in both “rich” and “poor” sections of Los Angeles. In this setting he has seen and treated a tremendous variety of problems, illnesses, and traumas. He may not have “seen it all,” but he has seen most of it. He also spent almost 5 years in Neurosurgery Residency and has been working in that specialty here in Bakersfield since the year 2000.
