Great Dr. 10 years with him. Takes patient input into account, which is good. If you just want a pill pusher that doesn't listen to elsewhere. Receptionist is great, even calls me with cancellations if she knows I need attention.

I've been going to Dr. McManus once a month for the past three years. I actually look forward to my appointments. He is so kind, professional, knowledgable, nonjudgmental, and helpful. My quality of life has improved substantially since I started treatment with him. As for the comments about his punctuality, most of the doctors whom I make appointments are running behind schedule closer to the end of the day. I just bring a book but usually end up chatting with the extremely friendly receptionist. I have the option of booking first thing in the morning, when he's not behind schedule, but I choose an afternoon appointment because it works better for me. As I previously mentioned, the receptionist is lovely, having gotten to know her over the years. She is very accommodating, and I really couldn't ask for better customer service or a friendlier face greeting me before my appointment.

I've been seeing Dr mcmanus for 2 years and I have been seeing doctors for over 12. I find him very comfortable, helpful, knowledgeable, and understanding. He is always running late but what can you do most doctors run late. The receptionist has never come off cold to me and if she does to other people it's probably because she has lots of work to do, people take things way too personally. Besides him running late and then cutting our appointmento short I think he's one of the best.

Excellent psychiatrist. Was on a long waiting list when moving here, but it was entirely worth the wait. He really listens and gives honest opinions.

I've been seeing Dr. McManus for over a year now and I can honestly say that I think he saved my life (well, a combination of his helpful sessions, and success with my anti-depressants). He's completely non-judgemental, a great listener, and gives helpful advice and insight. He has helped me see and understand patterns in my behaviour and triggers, and he's helping me build my set of tools (responses) to overcome those triggers. For the first time in a long time, I'm happy and content and I wouldn't be here without his help. As for his secretary, I disagree 100% with anyone who says she's difficult and unhelpful. If you take some time to get to know her and treat her with respect, that's exactly how she treats you back. She has gone out of her way to reschedule me if I've needed to reschedule an appointment. And, when she has a break in her workload, she often takes the opportunity to have a quick chat. Honestly, I think she's been great. Scheduling appointments...sure, they only let you book a certain amount of time ahead. But, again, this isn't hugely problematic. It's a busy office and there's a reason for it. He's that good. Booking only two months ahead gives regular and new patients equal access and ability to get appointments. And when you're there, just pre-book you next appointment. Once you get into a pattern, it's easy to get your next appointment set. Long post, sorry. I've just seen negative posts on here and wanted to say that my experience with Doctor McManus and his staff couldn't be more positive.

Very kind and caring man. I've been seeing him for 9 years. He respects my opinion and is not judge mental or pushy with the drugs. I've found BOTH his receptionists over my tenure with him to be friendly and helpful.

Dr. McMannus is way too relaxed or doesn't care, take your pick. He pretty much lets the patient decide what meds he/she should be on and what the dose should be. When things are going horribly wrong he prefers to remain with the status quo and continue to let his patient remain unwell rather than be bothered to change the med because that would be too much work. He is NEVER available in an emergency, NEVER returns any calls no matter how serious the situation and basically provides NO SUPPORT outside of the 45 minutes he spends with the patient once every 8 weeks. He has the most God awful rudest secretary, who is plainly ignorant and mean. If you need an appmt monthly instead of every 2 months, you are supposed to phone her every month to book it. Is this not HER job??. I am fed up with the treatment received in this office and would not recommend this Dr to anyone. Looking for a new one at the moment.

I've read the reviews and must say that I agree with most. DR McManus is a good listener, he knows his stuff. Unfortunately, his receptionist is in need of his care. She does not acknowledge patients as they arrive, nor does she acknowledge them when spoken to. I asked many times for my records which she refused to give me and so I finally called The College to see if I was in fact within my right to obtain the records and was reassured I was. So I asked the College to please phone and explain this (to this difficult and oppositional woman). They did. THIS put the doctor on defence and he berated me for "alerting the college to his office". He told me "I can't have it both ways". He went ballistic. As I left his office in an extreme breakdown for the fallout from having stuck up for myself and setting healthy boundaries I knew it was the last time I would receive such quality care from a good doctor. It's surprising that he protects her so passionately given the way she treats people. I've never met such an unkind person, obviously in need of therapeutic care. Poor dr McManus, just doesn't have the balls to deal with such a bully. I'm guessing.
