Over prescribes. Zero interest in hearing my experience of current medication. Told me he's been doing this a long time and that almost nobody he's seen has had the side effects I was having, even after I confirmed through the FDA to be a very common side effect of the drug. Literally didn't have any concern for my experience or wellbeing, was more concerned about being right. I found a new psych after this who made it explicitly clear that this kind of behavior is completely unacceptable from a psychiatrist.

My experience with Dr. Manov has been completely positive. He listens to me and my husband. I am happy to have my husband talk privately with Dr. Manov. My husband sees me clearly. I am bipolar and I understand that my vision of myself is not always accurate. I am lucky to have my husband who has stuck with me. Now, I can see how I've struggled in the past, and I can actually realize when I'm being unreasonable and make a conscience decision to change for the better. Dr. Manov understands my situation. I think not all psychiatrists work for everyone. You have to find person who works for you. Dr. Manov works for me. I'm very comfortable with him and he has saved my life. I enjoy myself and the people around me do too!

Absolute worst dr I have ever seen. I have been seeing him for over a year and I don’t know how I still go. He is so insensitive about person issues, brings them up in a very rude and upsetting way. He asks questions and does not listen to you. I have told him every single appointment I am a hairdresser and he has never remembered. What he does remember is things I’ve struggled with and he likes to point them out to me in a mean way. A couple of real comments from him (no joke) “Bipolar people are immoral” “I don’t want your brother to waste as much time as you did with figuring out your bi polar.” He also diagnosed me with bipolar after talking to me for 3 minutes. Please DO NOT go to him. Do yourself a favor get a real doctor!

Dr Manov should not be a doctor. He is rude, belittling and doesn’t listen. His poor decisions landed my son in the psychiatric hospital twice!

I'm an adult who saw Dr. Manov for over a year before switching psychiatrists. I found him cold and arrogant and unwilling to listen to my input. At first I thought the relationship would work because I enjoy quirky people, but after a few visits I realized it would be rocky. He told me that he can tell within the first few seconds of a patient walking through the door--even before they said anything, he knew their diagnosis and what he was going to do, but people want to talk so he has to make useless small talk. I am not making this up. When I see any doctor, I expect the doctor to make a genuine effort to listen to me and understand my experience, then work out a treatment plan that they and I both agree with. Dr. Manov just made his decision and told you what it was. After a while I gave up trying to make my voice heard and looked for another psychiatrist. One last note: He tends to err on the side of more medication than less. Whether that's a good thing or bad is your call.

Dr. Manov has helped me learn effective coping mechanisms. He expects a lot out of his patients, in a good way. If you keep your appointments and work hard along with him, you will achieve peace. I highly recommend him, and I highly recommend therapy in general. It saved my life.

I have been taking my adult disabled son who is totally non-verbal and who has multiple psychiatric and neurological issues to Dr. Manov for several years now and our (my son and I) experience has been excellent. Dr. Manov is very professional and detailed in his approach, making sure to work with both My son's Neurologist as well as his Primary Care Physician (a Doctor of Internal Medicine). I give Dr. Manov 5 enthusiastic stars!

Trustworthy physician. Provides compassionate understanding and caring support. Benevolent and kindhearted. Thoughtfully higher minded. Enjoyable sessions. Gained confidence and belief in myself. Office is comforting and staff is excellent. Recommended to all of my family and they share the same impression. I am blessed to be in the care of such a delightful practitioner of emotional healing.

I'm shocked Dr Manov has any decent reviews because my experience with him has been horrible. I've dreaded every appointment I have made with him, which is probably a sign that I should have switched psychiatrists a long time ago. He has been insensitive and rude about very delicate personal issues that I've expressed with him numerous times. It got to a point where I stopped bringing anything up because he would just make me feel awful about it. I would just go for the RX refills. I'm not sure if he is just very forgetful even after dozens of appts, or if he is really just rude and arrogant? I don't expect him to remember every detail about my life, but it would be nice if he would at least review his notes every once in awhile. It's hard to share mental health issues to someone who is so imperceptive, inconsiderate, and thoughtless. If you just need someone to write an RX, he's as good as anyone else. But don't share anything too personal and expect him to even pretend to care.

We have been seeing Dr Manov for over a year, and he has been great with my kids, after our pediatrician was out of resources. Mental health medication has been a rough road for our family, and I am so glad that Dr Manov takes the time to listen to our verbal (and my non-verbal sometimes) feedback. The first appointment was of course longer to get the complete background and to make sure everything was recorded. Follow ups are quicker, but still very efficient for medication changes if needed. His staff has been very helpful when we had to rearrange schedules and when we needed an extra refill because of bad planning on my part. Very accommodating. If you are looking for a no-nonsense, well qualified doctor, and if you can be clear about your questions and desired results - he's the one to go to. We have felt well cared for and have recommended him to friends that have asked.

If you want superfluous appointments, lots of hand holding, and a soft, melancholic bedside manner—Dr. Manov is not your man! He is efficient, expert, and will not waste your time (like doctors we’ve had before—with 2/week appointments for months on end). He helped my teen immensely and worked around our busy schedules. He accepts almost all Insurance, and we’ve never paid more than a simple $20 Co-pay. Attractive office. Easy access to I-15. And he’s the best and the brightest. Five stars!

I have seen doctor Manov two times. The first time the care was top notch and the Bulgarian Dr. spent adequate time asking questions, listening, and personalizing the appointment. The second appointment Dr Manov was rude, did not listen to concerns I was having with the medication he prescribed, and was completely closed minded and in a rush to get on to the next patient. He had the nerve of verbalizing his impatience “saying we need to hurry this up I have other patients waiting.”

I honestly don’t know how he has any high reviews. Maybe from people with very simple complaints? He just does not listen well. He thinks he knows best when he really can’t even remember what you’ve ever talked about. Barely remembers my name after 4 visits. He once said to me, you don’t need counseling until after we figure out your medications. What?? Don’t they go hand in hand? Considering he spends 20 minutes represcribing my medications, I don’t think that’s working through my issues much.

Dr. Manov believes he is right & everyone else is wrong. He lectures you for having a difference of opinion. This man over medicates. He put our child on 3 different drugs at one time. Our son was asleep most of the time and couldn't concentrate in school. We tried to speak to him about it but no he wouldn't listen. His office staff is as rude as him. We've had problems with Latasha his billing specialist who told us our bill was paid then tried to go back on it. Don't go here!

Dr. Manov is very knowledgeable and thorough. I never felt just another number waiting in line. Office staff is very friendly and helpful. Longest I ever waited in office for my appointment was 15 min. Usually a 5 to 10 min wait.

I would highly recommend that you do your research before seeing Dr. Manov. He tends to be very rude when you question his opinion even if you have facts to show that you may have some insight. He is quick to diagnose before gathering all the information and tends to have a general lack of knowledge when you try to inquire on alternate possibilities.
