What People Say About Dr. Ingrid Julie Chua-Manalo, MD

Dr. Manalo has been my Doctor for over 11 years. My OB recommended her. She of course was patient, kind & brilliant. But something more. Being a nervous new mom she set my worries aside & helped me feel better. She stays knowledgeable. She wants to help. She knows for me it’s important that I find natural ways to deal with my pain. It’s a part of my life & hurting other parts of my body is not a better alternative for me. I appreciate her time. She’s very focused & doesn’t rush.

Dr. Manalo is extremely knowledgeable and cares about her patients. She will answer any and all questions that you have and you will never feel rushed out of her office. Dr. Manalo goes above and beyond for her patients. I give Dr. Manalo 5 stars for her depth of knowledge about each condition that she treats, for the generous amount of time she spends with her patients, for her empathy for pain and suffering and for her kind and caring bedside manner.

Dr. Manalo is one of the most caring doctors I know. The time she spends with you is remarkable. I know time is important for all but I know she is spending just as much time with me as she does everyone. Her procedures and ideas for treatment have helped me with my chronic pain. If something doesn't work she tries other things and suggests other things that I wouldn't have thought about. She is careful with medication and dedicated to treating all of you, not just my back! Love her!

I have known Dr. Chua-Manalo for many years, even prior to her becoming affiliated with MHSI. The care that she brings to her patients is unmeasurable. Dr. Manalo LISTENS to your concerns, writes them down as you speak, but she remembers them, even years down the road. Dr. Manalo will refer you when you needed, she suggests other ways to manage pain that are proven. There's so much more I would like to say, but space limits, she is Amazing, trusting, faithful and I am blessed to be her patient

After seeing 3 other pain specialists I was reluctant to see another. At a family members insistance, I did. BEST THING I EVER DID! Dr. MANALO is fantatastic. She listened. No, really I mean she really listened to EVERYTHING I had to say AND she took NOTES!! When I was done telling her everything, she went through everything one thing at a time. We set up a game plan. Here we are 4 years later and I am doing much better. Still referring this magnificent Women to anyone in need.

Dr. Manalo is very caring and considerate of my needs and doesn't push medication. I have multiple issues with my neck and back and under her care I'm living my life with full function. She is genuinely concerned about progress being made. I have been a patitient for a couple years now and she as well as the staff have always treated me with kindness and respect.

I am so thankful for Dr. Manalo she is a doctor that listens to everything I had to say, she said I have many options that we can try to get your pain under control and we had a plan to start that day, and if that did not work we tried other ways then we found one that worked to get my pain under control I thank god for her everyday I have been to a lot of pain clinics and doctors just don't listen like Dr, Manolo.

One of the worst experiences I've ever had at a Drs office! This woman spent more time talking about acupuncture, and the fact that she was treating patients before she was even certified to do so ,then she did talking to me about my procedure. I have absolutely no confidence that she will act as the doctor prescribed. She's more interested in acupuncture than treating patients correctly.

I love this doctor! She took the time to figure out what was causing my pain, and went the extra mile to perform procedures that keep it under control. I can walk, move around, do housework, and work because of her. I'd highly recommend Dr. Manalo to anybody who is motivated to be well and willing to work at maintaining and maximizing his or her physical mobility.

Dr. Manalo is awesome! She understands my pain and knows how to treat my condition with excellence. Dr. Manalo is not only professional in her care, she is genuinely concerned about my whole health. I would recommend Dr. Manalo to anybody in need of her expertise . I would like to add if I may, the staff is alway professional, polite, accurate and efficient . Even though their days are busy I've always been treated very well and greater with a smile. Thank you for putting patients first!
