When I met Christopher Mandigo, MD could walk without a cane or walker and hit tennis balls.. After his horrific and disgusting treatment I cannot walk normally.

Dr. Mandigo explained my back issue, surgical procedures, and answered every question I had to help me be fully aware of my condition and how surgery would effect me. He gave me complete peace of mind.
in Cortlandt Manor, NY |
Dr. Mandigo took extensive time explaining my condition and options. He was highly empathetic and informative. After surgery, he was available and attentive. He communicated directly with me on-call during some complications. Dr. Mangdigo is one of the best doctors that I have ever met. He clearly takes a personal comittment and interest in his patients.

Dr Mandigo is an outstanding surgeon and Caring doctor. I had 2 procedures done by Dr.Mandigo Dr.Mandigo was highly recommended and I felt very comfortable Being his patient and. I still visit his office for follow ups.
in Bridgewater, NJ |
My experience with Dr. Mandigo was fantastic. I previously consulted with a NJ surgeon who gave me less than five minutes of his time before he offered surgery. I was unhappy and worried, so someone recommended Dr. Mandigo. This doctor gave me almost an hour of his time for my first appointment and did not let me leave until all of my questions were thoroughly answered. He made me feel comfortable and safe. He is truly caring and brilliant, and I would recommend him to anyone.
in Hartsdale, NY |
My whole experience was terrific. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Mandigo was patient, explained things and has a very comfortable way about him. And always got back to me when I needed to talk to him. I felt lucky to be referred to him.

i was unable to walk one block without my legs getting numb. After dr. mandigo performed a lumbar laminectomy with fusion i am now able to walk miles. pain and restriction after the surgery was moderate. the surgery enables me to resume my prior active life. dr. mandigo is a great surgeon with compassion, concern and consistent follow-up.
in New York, NY |
Amazing doctor and person: performed A++ surgery to remove a huge meningioma from my mother's frontal lobe, consistently stays on top of his patients and is very clear and comforting to the families. When I first contacted him to see if he would see my mom, he called me from his son's soccer game over the weekend and arranged her transfer that day. Highly recommend, can't say enough good things about him and the experience.
