25/06/11 5 5 5 5 I dreaded going to the doctor until I met Dr Manso. I'm not an assembly line type of person who can tolerate being treated like a number. Dr Manso treats you like a partner in maintaining your health and heading off disease before it strikes. He's compassionate, caring and brilliant. You won't find anyone else like him.

23/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr Manso and his staff are great. After going to several doctors in the area, it was a welcome relief to experience someone who truly listens and responds to my concerns with a wholistic approach. My labs are responding and I've lost 21 lbs in the process. I feel better than I've felt in a long long time. What a refreshing experience!

11/02/11 5 5 5 5 I have been going to Dr. Manso for over 20 years. I can honestly say that I have never left discouraged or that the staff did not pay attention to what I was saying. I have always been given plenty of time to ask questions. I have never felt as if any of the staff have looked down upon me as they are in the medical field and I know nothing. They have always been most helpful to explain what they are doing and why. I believe he is interested in the whole body and not just the problem I or my children are coming to him for at that time. I have always sensed the staff to be compassionate and concerned for their patients. I have recommended him to many. My family and friends in different locations are jealous that I have such an excellent doctor to go to.

17/08/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Manso is wonderful. He really listens and works with you to heal the whole body using mostly natural supplements. With his guidance, I have moved from a state of deteriorating health where it was difficult and painful to move, to being a healthy, active woman again. I had been fighting debilitating pain and weakness for several years and could not get up from a chair without help or walk more than a few steps. I had almost given up hope of avoiding a wheel chair in the near future. Dr. Manso does not take Medicare but he is well worth what it costs. He also does not promote his own products, which many holistic doctors do.  Respond

14/04/10 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Manso looking for a physician who could prescribe the medicine I have been taking for years, yet agree with my philosophy to keep drugs to a minimum and take a natural approach to health whenever possible. I was very satisfied with his medical expertise and thoroughness. I highly recommend him.  Respond

10/03/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Manso is deeply repsectful of me as a patient and always allows plenty of time for my concerns. He is never rushed or too quick to diagnose. He has helped me to overcome several health issues that other doctors weren't even willing to investigate. He has a great manner with patients and is incredibly thorough in his evaluation. And I especially love that he approaches my health from the perspective of my whole person and not just physical ailments. He is always an emotional/psychological "shot in the arm" when I go! I HIGHLY recommend him - he is of the highest quality of doctor!!!!  Respond

04/03/10 5 5 5 5 I have gone to Dr. Manso for over twenty years. I used to travel to Houston from Colorado when I needed his wisdom. I have always been very pleased with the way he worked with me, listened and really heard what I was concerned about. I continue to refer patients to Dr. Manso and have ALWAYS received very good reviews when they had appointments with him. Now I am back in Houston and he is our family doctor once again. I cannot say enough good about him.  Respond

04/02/10 5 5 5 5 I consult with Dr. Manso in conjunction with my long-time internist. He is an extremely good listener and is willing to talk about various therapies. The supplement regimen he recommended worked exactly as he described. He has also prescribed traditional meds for me and is willing to talk in detail of the pros and cons of every treatment. As a diagnostician he is unsurpassed--- and immediately recognized a couple of minor conditions/traits within 2 minutes of my first exam-- simply amazing.

02/02/10 5 5 5 5 Maintain absolute confidence in Dr. Manso, his associates and staff. I placed my medical care with them about 6-7 years ago and continue. I echo most of the positive comments and add that Gilbert is a master at LISTENING and resonating with the patient's needs AND wishes. I favor holistic/homeopathic treatments first and allopathic methods second. This is precisely what I get...along with Dr. Manso's guidance. I have friends who wish the Christian/prayer approach and they get it. I don't and I respect that. There is never a wait or a rush. I am granted as much time as I wish or need....and pay accordingly.....that's fair. Seldom are other patients waiting....staff must schedule well. I like full disclosure of his theories about why I am ailing....and he provides it. He surely alters his style for other preferences. Gilbert is a master diagnostician. He is a gift from God.  Respond

12/08/09 5 5 5 5 My daughter was treated by many doctors and had as many as 7 visits to hospital in one year. He treated her and now she lives a normal life she is an honor student in college. Other doctors had told us she may never finish high school. Dr. Manso was a God send to unbelievers. My husband comes from a family of doctors, thought Dr. Manso was a quack now my husband has a lot of respect for him. Go to get your problems adress but follow his instructions.  Respond

30/06/09 5 5 5 5 New visitors to this incredible office are in for a treat: you'll be seen promptly, by a compassionate physician who listens closely and makes an educated diagnosis based on vast medical knowledge. Be prepared to learn how to take care of your health, and be inspired that it is possible to do so. Make no bones about it: I'm a huge fan of The Whole Health Center. Everyone, from the receptionist to Dr. Manso himself, is there because they care about your health and well-being. And it shows!  Respond

05/06/09 4 5 5 5 Very good listener. Values your time as well as his own. Vast knowledge of alternatives that may may be more beneficial to you than conventional treatment.  Respond

19/05/09 3 5 1 3 Years ago, Dr. Manso was recommended by born again Christians I knew. His office was comfortable; his attitude very positive. He was CHARMING, and could convince desperate patients to try anything. He talks about spiritual things and offers to pray with you. I later decided he was a “New Age wolf in sheep’s clothing.” Later, I developed doubts about my whole regime. While being brilliant in diagnostics, his lack of discernment in accepting all forms of alternative medicine, no matter how UNSCIENTIFIC or dangerous they might be, was SCARY. He advocated a book by Deepak Chopra which was totally bizarre. Another such book was one written by Arnold Ehret, a crackpot from the 19th century. The vegan diet didn’t help my medical problem, and I refused weird practices like “colonic irrigation” that he suggested. According to his profile, he has NO hospital to practice in. WHY NOT? He was the most expensive doctor I have ever visited. True Christians ought to beware of this guy!  Respond

18/10/08 5 5 5 1 I sent my records to the doctor and after reviewing them, the nurse called to say that the doctor did not feel he had the expertise to help me. I appreciated that he didn't waste my time or money.

18/06/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Manso and his staff "partner" with their patients in addressing health matters; he listens and strategizes the issues with you. Having spent a decade under his care, I appreciate more each year the unique approach he has to practicing medicine.

01/06/08 4 5 5 5 This is THE doctor to visit if you have problems that aren't being resolved by conventional medicine. Dr. Manso is very knowledgeable and chooses just the right treatment for each patient. He really listens to what you are saying and is brilliant at reading between the lines.  Respond
