Office visit was fine - dr. was good - Blood draw for lab test was ordered. It took 1.5 hrs to get blood draw plus in & out of building twice and time in another waiting room - not a good idea especially with COVID.

July 20, 2020 5:52 PM

April 17, 2020 12:00 AM

I was very satisfied with my doctor. She couldn't see me because of the COVID virus but she listened to my symptoms & had medicine for me from Walgreens. It worked after 2 weeks. She would have seen me if it didn't work I would have gotten an X-ray.

March 29, 2020 3:20 AM

Excellent experience with Dr Manta and the practice. I had problems completing this survey using Safari on my smartphone - the survey would not advance to the next question, even after waiting for 3 or more minutes. I was able to complete the survey using Firefox on my laptop without problems.

I have an upcoming surgery and had to get health clearance from Dr. Manta. Dr. Manta is an exceptional doctor to have and I really feel connected to her at each visit. She is attentive and really cares for her patients and i recommend her all the time.

March 14, 2020 9:35 AM

Dr. Manta was extremely thorough. She picked up on things other providers didn't or decided unnecessary.

March 14, 2020 9:35 AM

Very good experience. I feel she did everything necessary to get to know the whole me as I am a new patient. We disagreed about osteoporosis screening as I previously took preventive medication and feel that the "cure" is worse than the disease. I will have the screening, but will reserve decision on whether or not to take prolia until I know first if it is necessary and second, after I research the side effects.

Great Doctor

February 16, 2020 2:37 PM


February 13, 2020 11:29 AM

Two friends recommended Dr. Manta to me. She is their physician. My appt with her in January was the first time I saw her. I was not disappointed, and very impressed with her knowledge and "bedside" manner. I wanted a physician who was willing to listen to my thoughts & answer my questions & work with me, kind of like my "coach", to guide me on my goal of staying as healthy as possible. She's the one. She's awesome. I just wish that leadership would allow more time in all physicians' schedules. It seems that all doctors have too many appts each day &, because of that, are often not able to spend enough time with their patients or be as thorough as they might want & need to be. And that's stressful in many ways. Dr. Manta arrived late for her appt with me, but was very apologetic, & I felt bad for her because I thought she would be rushed for perhaps the rest of the day. She cares. I can see that. Sorry! Too many comments!

February 10, 2020 7:38 PM

thank you for your understanding, patience, explanations, and professionalism

February 10, 2020 7:38 PM


February 10, 2020 2:54 PM

January 20, 2020 3:48 PM

December 23, 2019 9:05 PM

Dr. Manta listens to what I have to say about my own health and lifestyle and respects my perspective. I truly appreciate that and her attitude allows me to discuss my concerns rather than feel I am being preached to. I respect her knowledge and opinions more because of that.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM
