Patient Feedback

The absolute best physician that I’ve been to! Amazing staff and great patient treatment. I have finally found a great physician that my daughters can eventually go to. What would take a 3-4 hour process, was done in less than an hour and a half!
I have been Dr. Manella’s patient for years. You couldn’t ask for a better doctor or office. The office staff is professional and friendly and has always been helpful when I have questions about an appointment or medication. In my experience, they have always gone above and beyond for their patients. I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Manella. Personally, I feel she and her whole office truly care about the well being of their patients and I would recommend Dr. Manella and her entire office to anybody looking for quality healthcare.
Manella Family Practice is one of the best medical offices I have been to. Dr Edele is a great doc. He actually talks with you about everything in words that make sense and listens and remembers what was discussed in previous appointments. I recommended him to a co worker who went as was very happy with the treatment he received as well. Top notch doctor and top notch practice!
This physician is outstanding and I have and will continue to refer people to the practice. Everyone in the office is compassionate, friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. It’s a pleasure being there.
Dr. Edele listened to me about my medical issues and concerns. He is very knowledgeable about everything we discussed and knew what specific treatments would be effective in alleviating my symptoms and resolving the issue.
I’m a new patient but so far he was a very attentive doctor and I felt relaxed and comfortable immediately.

My experience here was quite exemplary. From the moment I arrive everyone was helpful and friendly. I did not have to wait a long time to be seen and everything was handled seamlessly.
I have never had to wait a long time in the waiting room. My time with Dr Manella is always thorough and never rushed. Whether you see Dr Manella, Dr Edele, or Dr Romero (I’ve seen all three), they’ll be your new favorite doctor.
