Ratings for Dr. Lee M. Mandel
This doc and i used the term loosely, forgot his oath, "to do no harm" Went to him for sleep apnea, he immediately began suggesting I suddenly after 65 years have allergies and large tonsils. He implanted stents for my nasal passages and that was fine, BUT he used a laser on my uvula and that has left me with ongoing and according to other surgeons, a lifetime of issues and discomfort. It that weren't bad enough he never disclosed the downside of that procedure. Oh and by the way he isn't board certified to treat Sleep Apnea, Medicare will not accept his Sleep Apnea home study. If you need a CPAP machine go elsewhere, in my opinion he is only interested in billings, insurance or medicare, You have been warned!!
Quite possibly the WORST office staff I have EVER dealt with. The medial assistant and the office manager have nothing but excuses for not getting something done. It has taken us over 3 months to get a CPAP machine and every time we have called they can not own up to their lack of attention to the patients needs. Not worth the headache dealing with this office.
The staff is great that work with him. I recently had a Balloon Sinuplasty done with Dr. Lee M. Mandel; it was a quick procedure, that I feel ended well. The healing process is going great, and I hope this whole procedure will do me well in the long run!
I having problems to sleep due to severe sinus and allergies. My days were awful. I was tired all the time, in a bad mood since I could not sleep well. Since I had the balloon sinuplasty and started my allergy treatment, I started to feeling better right away.
Dr. Mandel was rude and short during my visit. He didn't want to listen, assumed he knew my diagnosis. Put me on steroids and didn't tell me the effects. I was so dizzy and clumsy, I fell in the parking lot. He then told me to take speech lessons for my laryngitis 😳
Dr. Mandel is arrogant. Before I even saw him, the staff said I had to have a sinus scan, even though my issue had nothing to do with sinuses! Quick to rush to surgery, then doesn't follow up afterwards.
