I recently had surgery to remove my tonsils and adenoids and a enlarged lymph node in my neck. I was referred to Dr. Manoukian for this surgery. I had read some horror stories about severe nerve damage and partial loss of arm movements as a result of the lymph node removal. I am happy to say the surgery was a success. I have absolutely no nerve damage and have full use of my arm. I am very happy with Dr. Manoukian and his staff and surgery crew. Thank you all..

Dr. Manoukian recently performed a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy on one of our granddaughters. The surgery went well. However, six days later an artery in her throat burst and we had to rush her to the emergency room of a nearby hospital. The emergency room doctor saw that the artery needed to immediately be cauterized. The hospital informed Dr. Manoukian and he drove over 20 miles during a snow blizzard (with police escort) to successfully perform the emergency surgery.

Dr. Paul Manoukian is a highly-skilled doctor and a highly-caring human being. In an office visit, he conducts his procedures in a precise and efficient manner. Though obviously on a tight schedule, he does not rush the patient but gives his full attention, asking questions and giving answers in detail until the patient is satisfied. He truly cares about the well being of his patients. He performed my scary-to-me surgery perfectly with no after complications. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Manoukian is an excellent physician and a kind, caring individual. I have gone to him for 25 years plus. I reccomend him to anyone seeking care in his field.

I questioned his staff the name of the surgery he was doing and his scheduler didn't know the name or how to pronounce any of it. I asked questions to his nurse about the procedure and she couldn't really explain it to me. I was nervous and called the office to help alleviate my fear and doubts. Next thing I know Dr. Manoukian himself called me today and told me that I had no right to question him or his staff and one week before my scheduled surgery he told me he would no longer treat me.

He was personable, professional and answered every question before my husbands surgery. The aftercare at his office was amazing. The staff were friendly and efficient. Great experience.

I saw Dr. M. in 2015 after being ill for several months. I even lost my sense of smell. Why did it take so long to see him, he asked. My husband's health issues take priority. His concern re: my entire being was beyond minimum exam, so kind I got teary. A CT scan ruled out tumors. Each visit he gets right to the crux of matter. He dictates verbatim right there so there are no misunderstandings. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. GREAT ENT, thorough, very caring like the old days. All better once again! Thanks!
in Minden, NV |
I have been a grateful to be his patient for 3 years. All doctors are well-educated but not all are exceptionally smart. He is organized, systematic and insightful. He gets the tests done that are needed and gets to the root of the problem quickly. I had several chronic problems that he has dealt with, greatly improving my quality of life. I highly recommend Dr Paul Manoukian of Gardnerville/Carson City, Nevada.

Dr Manoukian identified my melanoma tumor when 6 other respected doctors did not. He did his homework before he came into the patient room to see me, looked over my 2004 files, thought about my symptoms and nailed it. First thing. Right away. I found him to be dedicated, caring, personable, smart, welll versed in his field and empathetic. In a word...stellar.

Dr. Manoukian is very patient, explains the procedure(s) in a language you can understand. He is very thorough. I've always had a wonderful experience with Dr. Manoukian and he know his business. I had a surgery and he was excellent about the experience. I would recommend Dr. Manoukian to anyone who needs this type of Doctor.
in Fernley, NV |
Dr Manoukian was amazing. Very professional and thorough. He took his time in addressing my condition and any questions that I had. I was impressed that my appointment was not rushed and I felt like he REALLY listened to my concerns. A mass was discovered in my pharynx, Dr Manoukian scheduled surgery immediately. Surgery was on a Friday, the following Monday Dr Manoukian called me with wonderful results. It wasn't cancer,I HIGHLY recommend Dr Manoukian he is a kind and outstanding Physician

I Give Dr Manoukian 6 stars out of 5!! I recently had sinus surgery by Dr Manoukian and found him to be very confident and skilled as a surgeon. I feel very fortunate to have treatment at Sierra Nevada ENT. Staff was efficient and very helpful and appointments were on time. Cannot say enough about my experience at this clinic.

He is an amazing doctor!! He cared about my daughter, he listened to my concerns and followed through with everything. I love the patient, Doctor interaction rather than with the nurses. He made the phone calls, he called and spoke to us rather than a nurse. I would not choose any one else!!! Thank you so much
