Dr Mandel and his staff could not be more professional you will never leave his care with a question about how you obtained or can treat your condition. This practice is so thorough it is refreshing to have this quality of care!!!! My personal thanks go out to the P.A's Sam and Erin and of course Bridgett along with the most patient front desk person that deals with me Ashley and an Office Manager and then some Charlotte!!!!!!!!!!

Had Baloon Sinoplasty Operation. Dr Mandel told me it will fix my with breathing and septum deviation. 3 months after operation exactly same issues. Still same deviated septum and left side blockage. Wasted money for the surgery. Not Honest.

I just asked Dr Mandel if he can work on my daughter . I wouldn’t put her in anyone’s hands without having the exceptional experience I’ve had with him . This man has changed my life . I couldn’t breathe day or night with sleep being impossible. 17 minutes of surgery and I’m a different man . Thank you Dr Mandel !!!!!

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!

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.

The doctor was OK but scares you a lot. He doesn't give you the comfort that you should get. Office staff tries to help but it takes forever to get anything done. They need a month to give your reports or lab results and again they will ask for even a dollar for print. After 4 months, I am still waiting It is my personal interpretation that they are more focused towards making money than patient care
