What People Say About Dr. Vivek Manchanda, MD

Terrible, rude man who himself does not look in good health for only being 45. I am older than him by almost eight years and in much better physical shape than him, in spite of having had multiple back surgeries. He barely was in the room for one minute and left without even looking at my injury. He seemed angry that I made the nurse call him back and she even said how he races out of the room so fast, without seeing the patient. He is hardly worth 50 cents, much less the $110 that my insura

I have severe Osteoarthritis. Dr M has helped me live somewhat normal life. I was on heavy duty drugs before his injections and alternative medication regimen. Now low level pain 2-3 per day. Good doc.

Dr. Manchanda has helped me with several pain problems, lots of back pain, knee, hip and shoulder pain also. I would highly recommend Dr. Manchanda to anyone dealing with any pain issues. He is always up on the latest techniques and has been able to reduce my pain level so I can be active again.

My husband has been seeing him for over a year and he hasn't helped his pain, improved his quality of life, or really explained anything. In fact, my husband's condition continues to deteriorate. He is a poor excuse for a pain management doctor. I am currently searching for a real doctor who will actually try to help treat my husband's condition, not just dismiss him and treat him like a drug-seeking piece of trash.

I'd give him 0 star if it's an option. This doctor is the worst. He doesn't care about his patient. He is arrogant, doesn't listen and absolutely doesn't care about his patient! He is lucky that the prescription he gave my husband that he had major side effects on didn't land my husband in the emergency room or I would have absolutely no qualms appealing to the board of medicine or whoever I needed to go to to have his license revoked. Definitely not recommended.

I attended a seminar where my doc talked about back pain and arthritis and effects on narcotics on our society. I have been seeing him since then. His wait time is sometimes long but its worth it.

Dr. Manchanda is a great doctor, I'm finally off pain drugs I been taking for years given by other pain doctors. I was on heavy doses of norcotics when I came to him and he slowly tapered me down. My pain is almost gone after the Radio frequency Ablation he did on me.

Absolute waste of time. I was sent by my doctor because I have a herniated l5 s1 with a disc tear and he decided a pain management dr would be the best course of action. I had reservations about just being drugged up. Well I went to take my pre appointment urine test and after I took of work they didn't even have the order ready. So I had to take another day off and come back. The nurse practitioner treats you horrible and doesn't listen. I've never once asked for narcotics in fact other forms.

I do NOT recommend this doctor to anyone! He doesn't listen to questions nor explain his reasoning for treatment. Very unfriendly and lacks any sort of compassion. I was in tears when I left his office.
