Verified Patient Reviews
Got right in! Office staff and medical assistants were friendly and Dr. Mangan took his time to thoroughly check my knees and discuss options. Exemplary experience!
Dr. Mangan seems very knowledgeable and you get a sense he has patient empathy. Great Dr. Highly recommend
Very professional. Good comprehensive exam and excellent discussion. Took sufficient time to review the differential diagnoses with me. I am a senior physician, though Dr. Mangan didn't know this at first. I was traveling and needed to be seen. Would recommend him highly.
Well, I walked in 40 minutes before the appointment time with all the "New Patient" forms completely filled out. I checked in and sat down and about 15 minutes later I was told I had to drive over to get my shoulder x-ray'd - they neglected to ask me to do this prior to my appointment. I drove the mile or so and found the X-Ray Company waiting room packed. 45 minutes later I'm back in my car heading back to Dr. Mangan's Office where I waited another 30 minutes. This was completely avoidable had the office staff did their job and had me get X-Ray's BEFORE my appointment. Notwithstanding all that, Dr. Mangan had excellent bedside manner and I highly recommend him
Doctor was thoughtful and informative. He is setting up a plan of action to help me. I appreciate his knowledge and abilities.
Dr. seemed nice, I think asking someone to rank a drs. Office on a first visit is. A little premature, ask me 3 weeks after the schedualed surgery.
The visit with the doctor was good but the receptionists in the front are very rude and makes me think about ever going back.
This was my first visit and I was very happy with everything!
He was very informative
