Mandiga performed a spinal block during my c-section. During the time of meeting him, he spoke to me about what was going to happen. I could smell cigarettes when he was talking to me, but he made sure my spinal block was accurate. I could feel the medicine going down just one side of my leg to numb it. I let the doctor know so he made sure to move the needle to center more on my back. I could tell he was patient minded.
