What People Say About Dr. Jacob Manuel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My entire experience with Dr. Manuel and his staff was extremely great. Dr. Manuel answered all my questions and concerns about surgery. He was positive and upbeat about the surgery helping me return to work and a more active life style. Him and his staff worked very hard to get me an expedited surgery date, due to upcoming events in my life, then they had available at the time. St David’s medical facility was outstanding in their treatment of me before, during and after the surgery. Dr. Manuel was correct; I wish I had done this surgery with him long before I did. Two weeks afterwards, I’m moving around much better and trying to be disciplined and not push myself too hard on rehab too early. Thank you so much Sir.

I am a retired physician. I expected Dr. Manuel to recommend knee replacement on my first visit. He discussed alternative treatments. I decided to opt for a steroid injection to my left knee. It worked for about six months. On the second visit, we decided to try the viscosupplement. I have now received my second shot. I can already tell that the discomfort is less and have begun to stress my knee more. I am totally happy that I have been able to put my knee surgery off. I know I will need knee replacement, but I will worry about that next year. I totally trust Dr. Manuel in the treatment of my knee.

5 STARS Great office staff, no long waits, Dr Manual explained the procedure (partial knee replacement) in detail and I am back playing tennis at age 78. My knee is GREAT! St. David's Hospital was excellent.

I was very pleased with my initial visit with Dr Emmanuel. Listened to my story and explained his diagnosis thoroughly and discussed suggested plan for my care . Did have quite long wait and doctor and other staff apologized for that.

I couldn’t have been more pleased with my new hip. Having had knees replaced elsewhere I was pleasantly surprised with the efficiency and seamlessness of the entire undertaking. The office staff as well as the hospital staff were kind and caring. I would definitely recommend Dr Manuel and St David’s.

Dr.Manuel replaced both my knees on the same day in 2013, after I promised to do ALL of the rehab he prescribed: he managed the surgery, the in-house rehab, the home rehab and home nursing. Since then, these knees have hopped trains in England & Wales, walked thru Santa Fe, wandered all over Alabama, & traveled British Columbia by plane, train, cab, bus and ferry. My consumption of painkillers which was daily in 2013 is now maybe a couple of times a month when the weather changes. Thanks for all you do. These knees are a blessing every single day.
