18/12/12 5 5 5 5 I have been going to Dr. Mannan for over a year - hear staff is extremely helpful and Dr. Mannan takes the time to explain all of my concerns which is a PLUS as most Doctors today treat you like a number instead of a person. Dr. Mannan treat you like a person :) I would highly recommend her to everyone  Respond

04/04/12 5 3 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Mannan for years. Since she has been on the third floor. She is a great Doctor and has always been able to help me control my blood sugars. Over time, she has gotten a much better staff. The old staff could have been friendlier. I love how the newer staff are always so friendly and helpful. The asian girl, I think her name is Shawna or Donna, that answers the phone is always sweet, polite, and gets my concerns across to Dr. Mannan. I've gotten to know the office and feel that I will be coming here for a very long time. The wait is sometimes long, but it doesn't stop Dr. Mannan from spending time with you when it's your turn to answer all your questions.

04/04/12 1 1 1 1 RUDE STAFF. LONG WAIT EVERY SINGLE TIME. SENDS A BILL THAT WAS ALREADY BEEN TAKEN CARED FOR. UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF ESPECIALLY THAT SHAUNA THAT SITS WAY ON THE RIGHT. SHE DOES NOT GREET PATIENTS AT ALL WHEN DR MANNAN IS NOT PRESENT BUT PRETENDS SHE IS SMILING AND CHATTING WITH PATIENTS WHEN DR. MANNAN IS IN FRONT. SHE HAS NO MANNERS. THE STAFF ARE NOT KNOWLEDGEABLE AND DR. MANNAN IS ALWAYS LATE.  Respond

15/03/12 2 5 3 3 I have had type 1 diabetes for over 25 years and auto-immune thyroid issues as well. The two most important things to me are the doctor's team-mindedness and her knowledge and ability to share that knowledge in an useful manner. Dr. Mannan is authoratative in her manner- she did not make me feel like part of my own healthcare team. She didn't rely on what I had to say, nor did she bother to get to know me. (I'd be seeing her every 3 months if I'd stayed with her). When I talked, she talked over me. She told me things I already knew and didn't (couldn't?) elaborate intelligently on what I didn't. She gave me the impression that she had to be the only one to talk the talk. She did this by talking over me and discrediting what I was saying with her own experiences. She didn't do a thorough review of my thyroid symptoms, and missed a lot of important things (as I learned later when a test result came in that she reported, but didn't address). Her office is messy and cluttered.

06/03/12 5 4 4 5 I've been seeing Dr Mannan for some years now and clearly see a major improvement in her practice. The staff and wait times were a real issue before. I stuck with Dr. Manna because of her knowledge and friendliness. I recently had to reschedule an appt. after I had already arrived and waited a while, (never happened before) also due to my own busy schedule, but when I did see her next, she was very apologetic and I was impressed that she even knew (and remembered)about the incident. I'm glad I stayed with her.

02/12/11 5 5 5 5 I have been going to Dr. Mannan for the last 6 years (diagnosis: hashimoto thyroiditis). She is the best doctor I have ever seen as an adult. I find her very knowledgeable and i feel that she takes her time to answer all my questions. I cannot say enough good things about her.

22/11/11 1 1 1 3 I had an appointment that I needed to cancel and the answering service wouldn't even pick-up, the phone just rang (this was within the 24 hour cancellation requirement). I finally got through a day later (the day of my appointment)and explained that I could not get through the day before, the receptionist conceded that they were having "problems" with their phone. But they still charged me the $25 late cancellation fee (this is despite my objection and pointing out the impossibility of rescheduling). I have waited as long as 90 minutes in the waiting room and the doctor always seems like she is in a rush to get you out once she finally sees you (probably due to the backed-up waiting room). I no longer see this doctor.

15/09/11 5 4 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Mannan for 1-2 years for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. She is very thorough, friendly, and knowledgeable. Sometimes the wait is 15 mins or so, but she spends lots of time with you when it is your turn, so I don't mind a brief wait. Her staff is friendly and helpful as well. I highly recommend her for thyroid problems!

25/08/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mannan looked at my past AIC records and immediately set me on a new path to wellness. I cherish my appointments. She challenged me to set higher goals in healthy living each appointment though I have been with her only a short time. The office staff seems knowledgeable and there's an atmosphere of friendliness. She is highly recommended.  Respond

22/08/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mannon always looks at the big picture and considers all my medical problems when we are deciding which is the best alternative for me to follow. I have never had any problems and have been seeing her for at least three years.

She is very informative and gives me the best treatment I think I will ever find. Her staff has been more than friendly and I can always count on them to follow through with my needs.  Respond

11/06/11 2 1 1 2 Her staff left me waiting for over an hour without telling me they never recieved an authorization they told me they were going to get three weeks before when I made the appointment. I thought they should have at least called and told me before I arrived for the appointment. They call me for everything else, They call me and tell me when to come in. Dr.Mannan's bedside manner isn't the greatest she doesn't leave you with time to ask her questions. I am going to use my VA benefits and see a doctor there.

01/04/11 4 2 3 3 Dr. Mannan kept us waiting for 25 minutes before seeing us. I've been seeing her for a year now and have noticed though she may be knowledgeable, and she has horrible bedside manner. I cannot believe that she has us wait for an appointment to hear our bloodwork results. My presciptions are so hard to get refilled on time. The previous staff she had was horrible. One girl looked as though she was picked out of a trash dumpster and was very rude. The other girl was better but always spoke as if she had an attitude with everyone. The new staff she has are more pleasant and helpful and honestly could have worked for another doctor, so I am rating the staff a 4 now.

19/01/10 1 1 1 3 On two occasions Dr. Mannan's staff has left disturbing messages on my home answering machine, leading me to believe I'm having a life or death emergency if I don't come in immediately. BOTH times, the "EMERGENCY" was a minor adjustment in medication. Her staff needs to be trained on professionalism and I agree with the previous entry, she has no bedside manor.

30/04/09 1 1 1 1 Dr. Mannan's staff was rude and unprofessional. Dr. Mannan's bedside manner was terrible she did not listen to me and cut me off many times and when I followed up with her she said my lab work came out "normal". This was not true I went to another Endocrinologist and they told me my blood work was not normal and now I am being treated for a serious pituitary condition. I would not recommend her to anyone.

31/03/08 2 1 3 3 Dr. Mannan kept us waiting in the patients room for over 40 minutes before seeing us. 1 week after diagnosing me, she was on vacation, the doctor's she left on call refused to assist with a prescription problem (though she assured us that because we were new patients with a new diagnosis, she would update her on call doctors about us before she left). And the receptionist was not much help in the doctor's absence. I'm switching doctors for a practice with more than one physician.
