I suffer from a rare condition called thoracic endometriosis, and without hormonal therapy my lung collapses with my period. After ending up in the ER with a chest tube, I had TWO different doctors of mine personally call Dr. Mangal's office to request he see me. No reply. After numerous calls someone scheduled me, but 10 minutes later called to cancel me stating he needed to review my file but would call me. NEVER DID. He has no business calling himself an endo specialist.

The best doctor to go to for endometriosis! I cannot say enough good things about dr. Mangal! I have since moved out of houston and because of his excellent care, surgery skills, knowledge of the disease, and time he takes to understand his patients concerns, I will travel back to Texas because I know with him I will get honest answers and the best care on my individual needs. He is truly a blessing in my eyes and because of him I have my life back, and can actually begin fertility treatments.

Doctor Mangal helped me a year ago with my endometriosis. I've never been more impressed with a doctor before. He called me on a Sunday to go over my medical records, and got me in for my first appointment the following day (Monday). He spent over 5 hours with a small group us (and our significant others) making sure we truly understood what all endometriosis is, how its caused, and different treatment options available. Now a year later my husband and I are expecting our first child.

Dr. Mangal is the absolute BEST if you are suffering from Endometriosis. I have stage IV Endo and have lived with this miserable disease for 20 years. After going through countless doctors who claimed to know how to treat this disease, my husband found Dr. Mangal. Dr. Mangal is the gold standard when it comes all aspects of endometriosis. Yes, you may have longer waiting time, however, you will NOT find a better endo specialist ANYWHERE! He is compassionate, thorough and intelligent doctor.
