Dr. Manning was referred to me from my PT. I have been going to him for many years now and am very pleased. He is a very caring doctor and specializes in my fibromyalgia and arthritis. He has helped me tremendously and works with you on your own individual plan and needs. I would highly recommend him.

Every visit with Dr. Manning, you are made to understand his total interest is focused on you and only you. He will spend the necessary time to make you understand exactly what the situation is and will make recommendations, but ultimately the decision is the patients. I’ve been with him since 2002 and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Dr Manning is wonderful but his office staff are rude and unprofessional. I wonder if he is aware that they will not take payments that in order for me to see Dr Manning for the pain in my hand I have to pay my bill in full. When trying to meet the yearly deductible Doctor's office take payments without a problem. So now I either find a new Doctor or am stuck suffering. Dr Manning treated my hip in October and it feels great. I am saddened that I won't be able to make another appointment.

Left feeling less hope than I went in with. I have severe fibro. His receptionist is quite rude and doesn't complete things in a timely manner. This is not acceptable as her behavior is a contributing factor to my increased pain level at the moment

I've had nothing but good interactions with Dr Manning and his staff. I frequently recommend him to friends and family. It's been over 3+ years I've been seeing him for my rheumatological concerns.

Be prepared to have every type of Rx given to you, without much information about it, side effects, sensitivity, how to properly stop, etc. Yes, he is polite and professional, but don't expect much more conversation or feedback. Most of staff is rude and snippy.

I was hoping to have the office be thorough when having me take all my lab work samples. I had to pry what my results were and what they meant otherwise I would have never had known.

Dr Manning is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable. He was able to finally figure out what was going on with me after years of struggling with other providers. He is helpful and caring and I will speak his praises until the cows come home.

Dr. Manning is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He immediately diagnosed me with psoriatic arthritis and started treatment. After a few months, I foolishly got it in my head that I'm ok. I don't need this treatment. 1+ yrs later I realized what was I thinking? I should've listened and trusted him! Now I have even worse health issues! He took me back as a patient & I'm forever grateful to him & his staff. TRUST HIM and stick w/your appointments! He's the best! Don't do what I did!
