Really professional! :)
great office, great staff, great doctor, but the wait time was horrible. I was apologized to for the wait and was told they were under staffed because somebody quit. I can understand that but was not a good first impression
The staff was very professional, and kind and Dr. Manning was wonderful he listen to all my concerns he was very patient in talking with me to find out what is going on with me. I recommend this office to everyone I even placed it on facebook. Corliss
He listens well. He will also follow up on what you share. I trust him.
I would not see this doctor again. They took over two hours to even see me, and only saw me after I said if they didn't see me in the next 10 minutes that I wanted my co-pay back and to leave. I had an appointment and I was only going to get a refill.
Should have made a morning appointment or immediately after lunch. Waited til 230p, and didn't get to the waiting until 330p, saw Dr. Manning by 400p, ended up leaving quarter til 500p. Overall time wait was terrible, but his bedside manner and willingness to listen to my concerns is second to none
My visit went well but the office staff was horrible. I tried to get my information transferred over to another doctor and it seems as though they were unsure of my testing. However, my insurance shows they ran the tests but they claim they do not have the results to send over. Completely insane!
Dr.. Manning has great bedside manner, however I will never visit this facility again. My wait was 2 hours. Many of the patients in the waiting room were telling me that it's common when visiting this facility. The individuals working the front desk are very young and unprofessional. They actually got into an argument while I was there. This is a very unprofessional facility and I would never recommend it to anyone.
Because I have been to many hospitals and specialists and PCPs as I try to figure out a neuro-muscular issue that has kept me from working steadily for the last seven years, I presented a complicated, still undiagnosed case to Dr. Manning. He and his staff were especially calm in my first appointment as I was nervous with the issues acting up again and tried to remember the worst ones, dates, and hospitalizations after not having had to do so since moving to Houston in the new-patient visit. He suggested medicines that I had wanted to try when all other doctors here in Houston and in every Boston hospital and the Mayo Clinic have not suggested, and I forgot to ask--to share responsibility, that just may help with the remaining issues and management of them. Most important, he didn't try to push any Big Pharma medications when I have tried most that are appropriate for a neuro-muscular condition and may have exacerbated the symptoms, and I stopped taking after consulting the doctors back in Boston to reduce the variables and he was willing to take on the case when others in Boston and here have balked at doing so because of its complexity and relatively long history and even been dismissive. He was also gracious to offer to request long medical records from many hospitals even before I had decided to have Dr. Manning be my PCP. When he said, that, that was the deciding moment. Having not wanted to engage in the medical system after moving to Houston, even when I found out not from Boston or Mayo Clinic doctors, that it had the largest medical system in the US, I was actually relieved when leaving his office when I have left other doctors' offices when reluctantly reconnecting with the medical system far more frustrated than when I went in. He is a PCP with a busy family practice. I know that PCPs have the most patients and longest days and that medical students know that and that they receive the lowest salaries compared to such specialists as dermatologists who may have the fewest office hours and is the first choice for some medical students for that reason and the highest salaries as well. Whether he becomes another Marcus Welby, time will tell, but he's on the right track in a challenging medical system for doctors and patients. Dr. Manning's choice to become a PCP alone is telling of his character and to have a practice at a crossroads in a neighborhood with a wide-ranging socio-economic demographic, and even a diverse racial and ethnic group gives more substance to his character, even after one visit but with the experience of many physician visits in different specialties over a long period of time to make this review as disinterested as possible. As an idealist who lost his trust in the medical field, and a patient who had the choice to go to such countries as India and Ecuador for "better" medical care, Dr. Manning, and his staff, have restored more than a modicum of faith in those who take the Hippocratic oath and stand by it when it is easy to break from its code with each patient and Big Pharma salespeople visiting at all hours. Through my experience, I have learned that being a physician, a teacher or a cashier at a grocery store is simply customer service with both parties sharing responsibilities for having optimal interactions. The best customer-service, however, doesn't always happen at the top-ranked hospitals, schools, or companies marketing it, it all depends on whom you get in the doctor's office, in the classroom, and at the register and, of course, the person's character as more degrees sometimes mean more egos.
As a new patient Dr Manning seemed to be a concerned doctor even though I had no issues during my physical.
Dr. Manning's bedside manner was satisfactory if not good, but everything else about the patient experience was very, very disappointing. I arrived 15 minutes early for my appointment, but did not get to see Dr. Manning until an hour and a half after my appointment time. Dr. Manning spent less than 10 minutes in the room with me, which is all he needed, then prescribed me with an antibiotic shot, which took another 30 minutes for a nurse to come in to take the shot. The entire process took more than 2.5 hours, which was very frustrating and unacceptable. I would be extremely disappointed if I found out that I had, in fact, been double/triple booked, which I fear is the case.
I think he's very professional and very concerned with my health issues. I don't like going to any doctor but he made me feel very comfortable, I would highly recommended him.
Doctor was great!!!!
I had to wait about an hour once in the room. Once Dr. Manning came in to see me, he left 3 or 4 times during the examination to see other patients or answer questions from the nurses. He did not seem engaged or to be fully paying attention to me.
Dr Manning was very friendly and answered all of my questions. Very pleasant first visit.
He was very caring and really took the time out to address all of my concerns. I highly recommend him!

Great visit! Great doctor would recommend to anyone.
I feel that the visit met my expectations.
Dr. Manning was great. He took the time to listen and addressed every concern with patience. The only issue was the amount of time spent in the office. My appt was for 8:30 but didn't get seen until about 9:30. After bloodwork and some other things, didn't leave the office until 11:20! This is too long to be at the doctors when you've been fasting. Other than that, great doctor!
Dr Manning was great..very attentive not trying to tell you what u need but actually listening and asking concerned questions to attack the problem area....he was very easy to talk to
Took the time to listen, and explain things to my understanding.
