Dr. Mangoo has been my nephrologist (kidney doctor) for several years and is an EXCELLENT no B.S. doctor. I dropped 2 stars because of his office's lack of common courtesy and respect for me as a patient. They lied to me about my VA voucher being expired. Nobody could tell me why they didn't check that before confirming my labs appointment with them. I checked with the VA and my voucher was good for another 6 months. I ended up getting my labs at the VA 2 hours later due to their lack of common courtesy. I wonder how they would feel about spending 3 hours and driving 25 miles to get tests taken (the test took less than 5 minutes). SUMMARY: EXCELLENT doctor POOR staff.
