Patient Comments (2)

Difficulty in making appointments by telephone. Front office is poorly staffed, unacceptable wait times to check in, check out and make new appointments. Long wait times for appointments and wait times in office.

He seems to be a good doctor. I like him, and he's thorough. The reason I gave him a 3 vs a 4 is the wait. I've seen Dr. Mannix twice, and both times I've waited over an hour. 'Not very considerate.
