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've been seeing Dr. Manchanda for almost 7 years. When I went to him from another pain clinic, I was over medicated, and he helped me get off the high doses and even go opiate-free for a couple of years. He has treated my back pain, nerve pain, sciatica, various joint problems, and has a thorough understanding of my multiple medical issues (rheumatoid arthritis, hereditary neuropathy, chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, back problems, etc). He is responsible in how he prescribes meds, requiring a medication contract, and he cares deeply about his patients. I've had lots of different procedures done by him as well, and he's always up on the latest research. He's open to input from the patient. He listens to his patients, is kind and compassionate, and has even called me from home to check on me after procedures. I can't recommend Dr. Manchanda highly enough.

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!!

Merita Propp – Feb 26, 2021
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

St. Peters – Jan 24, 2018
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.

KC in Ofallon, MO – Feb 28, 2017
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.
