Dr. Mammo has also volunteered as cataract, glaucoma and lid surgeon in Kenya, India and Mexico. Your visit of this doctor goes to help long ways in continuing this young doctors mission work to restore vision in the third world with an upcoming trip scheduled to Ethiopia.

The visit was great! I was able to fill out all my paper work online so everything was done before I arrived to the office. I met with both Dr. Mammo and her assistant they were both very knowledgeable, kind and patient. I needed that because I was anxious during examination. :)

I'm not sure what to think about my first visit with Dr. Mammo. It started with having to complete the check-in forms (medical history, insurance info, etc) even though I had completed them prior to the appointment online. The nurse was very nice. But the appointment room felt like a closet turned into temporary office. Dr. Mammo seemed nice.

Dr. Mammo's is a great Ophthalmologist; however, her office is poorly managed. When I called to cancel an appointment and reschedule, left a voice message, no one called me back; yet, I got a bill for a missed appointment copay. I am sure my insurance was billed for a missed appointment. On another occasion, I had an appointment that was scheduled, it was cancelled by the office, no one called me. I went to the office to find it closed. Whenever I leave messages, no one calls me back. I never get a callback or reminder regarding appointments. Working with Dr Mammo's office is frustrating.

Dr. Mammo was very sweet and friendly. I have a soft spot for people who remember your name and refer to it constantly -- Dr. Mammo is that way. Also, I never felt rushed, which is a big deal for New York doctors. She answered all my questions thoroughly and gave very clear instructions.

Very good experience with Dr. Mammo. She has a great personality - very friendly and very professional. I like when doctors actually tell you what they're doing and why, and she did just that during my eye appointment. The office on 25th street is also a nice, pleasant place.
