Bad doctor
Only treats elderly I was told by the doctor. Charged me for a 1 minute appointment and offered no treatment, since I’m not elderly. He was very hateful and rude. I found a good pain management center elsewhere, that offers non opioid solutions.

Long term patient
I have been seeing Dr. Manchanda since 2014. I have multiple chronic issues that all cause pain. I see him for pain medicine management and I've also had multiple procedures, including b0t0x for migraine, steroid injection, trigger point injection, and radio-frequency ablation. Dr. Manchanda is knowledgeable, caring, and willing to let you, the patient, have input into your care plan. The staff are all friendly too. Additionally, I have been able to do telemedicine visits during the pandemic. I have recommended Dr. Manchanda to many friends and will continue to do so.

I have been seeing Dr. Manchanda for several years and would recommend him to friends and family who are in pain and are seeking relief. I have low back pain, neck pain and knee pain. I didn’t think he would miraculously solve all my pain problems but he certainly made me much more comfortable and able to do a lot more activities of daily living. I felt he listened to me and explained things to me. He doesn’t rush you and his staff is very friendly.

I love Dr Manchanda! He really listens to his patients and cares about them. He is a very thorough Dr, checking every level of your MRI to see exactly where the problem area's are. He will do a procedure, and call the next day to check on you to make sure you got some relief from your pain. What Dr does that!! I wouldn't go to any other Dr, and I tell everybody that needs pain management about him!!

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

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.

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.
