Dr. Mandel is the best there is. I went to his office advising I was still having trouble breathing after having surgery for a deviated septum performed by another doctor. He carefully assessed and examined my nose and determined it was not done properly. He said he could fix it and he delivered. I can breathe like a normal human being again out of both nostrils. He is a man of his words and delivers results. I rarely ever leave reviews but Dr. Mandel definitely deserves it. Dr. Mandel and his staff delivers 120% at every visit. Thank you wholeheartedly for providing me the means to breathe through both of my nostrils again!

Went to this physician for what I was told was probably Sleep Apnea. After a quick scan of my nasal passages and throat he determined I needed to have my nasal passages opened with implants and that seems to be helpful and without issue. However he then proceeded to use a Laser on my Uvula, aka: Uvulaplasty, Really bad idea for my issues.. 5 months later still dealing with the side effects. After some research, have found medical research concluding that, "the decision to perform LAUP for snoring should be approached with caution" not a matter of course an certainly the downside effects should be discussed with patient first not after the procedure. Really bad place to go for quality medical treatment.

Dr. Mandel is excellent. He explains things in a very understandable way and is very easy to talk to. The procedure (balloon dilation (baloon sinuplasty)..not sure that is the correct medical term)) has worked extremely well. A great staff as well! All physicians and staff should operate this way.

Dr Mandel’ office is modern and efficient. My first appointment included a preop and I was there only and hour. He performed the ballon sinaplasty on me 2 weeks later and it changed my life . I feel like a new person with tons of energy!

I had incredible surgical procedure with Dr. Mandel and his staff. Correcting a deviated septum and uvula shortening. After 3 years of dialysis, a kidney transplant 17 years ago (Mayo Clinic), a peritoneal catheter inserted (Brow Gen) and 3 endoscopies (Holy Cross) in a 9 month period. A fistula in my left arm and later ligated (Brow Gen). This was the best procedure I ever had. Slight soreness that went away 1 hour after drinking water. NO pain! All turning out exactly as stated. Thanks!

The office and staff are very welcoming, organized, and clean. I had an amazing experience with a balloon procedure in their state-of-the-art OR. Very professional, systematic, and organized. I highly recommend this office, doctor, and his PA, Brigitte.

I came to Dr Mandel because of I was having sleep apnea and sinus problems. First off Dr Mandel has excellent bed side manner. He's genuine, kind and caring. His staff is great. I have two procedures done at his office...I had a UPPP and balloon sinusplat. The balloon sinusplat was a total success but the UPPP was a total failure and it actually made my sleep apnea worse. I eventually went to a pulmonologist and had a CPAP machine prescribed which it cured my sleep apnea.

It feels great to feel cool air getting into my nose after 60 years living with sinus issues & a deviated septum. Due to my medical condition from 9/11 exposures this office and its talents made my bad situation easier to live with. Allergy testing was painless FYI. I am so thankful to Dr Mandell and his amazing PA Brigitte who on another note saved my wife's life by finding a brain tumor during a sinus scan she did in office for a sore throat! I owe them so much. The office staff is fantastic
