Though Dr. Mangal's staff is often overwhelmed due to the incredible volume of patients, they manage as well as is possible. This indicated to us that more doctors with Dr. Mangal's knowledge and expertise are needed, and seemed the obvious reason new patients receive the initial orientation in groups. The long surgery he performed perfectly for my daughter improved her life, and pain level beyond expectations. Dr. Mangal was extremely efficient, thoroughly caring. He clearly explained the diagnosis, treatment and what to expect each step of the way. We recommend Dr. Mangal highly.

You will wait 6 hours in his waiting room--no matter what time your appointment is. His staff is HORRIBLE. It's not completely their fault--he does these cattle-calls to see any many patients at once (and, i now think this is to perform as many surgeries as possible--for the $$$). Angela, who is either a nurse or a nurse practitioner handles ALL of them. They mix up appointments constantly, and are always rushing to get you out of the exam room. Also, the other commenters are correct--she's incredibly rude. That's right, most of your first appointment is not an appointment at all, but you and eight other women (many of whom bring their husbands) watching videos in a room while Dr. Mangal does something else somewhere else. While giving me my pelvic exam, this doctor took a call on his cell phone. At first I thought maybe it was an emergency---but it was not. Mindless chit chat. My naked vagina, feet in the stirrups, and this guy chatting away on his cell. The last thing, the thing that really gets my goat, is that things (pain, and new horrible symptoms) have been so much worse since my surgery and Dr. Mangal doesn't give a crap. Angela (Dr. Mangal will never call you back. Only Angela) says it's normal for pain to be worse for many months after surgery, which might be true, but it would have been nice to know this BEFORE the surgery. I had no idea how bad it would be. The pain was so different and so much more severe that I almost went to the emergency room. I'm not used to having pain IN MY FEET so severe that I cannot walk on them while menstruating. So new and exciting. A heads up would have been nice. I've been trying to get a hold of him for weeks now, to get documentation for why I've been missing work every month (the increased symptoms which his nurse says, over the phone, are normal but for some reason it's impossible to get a work note stating this) and no dice. One positive thing I can think of is his bedside manner--he is polite. This is a personal preference: but I'd rather have a rude doctor who actually cares what happens to his patients after surgery. There *are* good doctors out there, ladies! They are hard to find, but they are out there. I intend to keep looking.

Good doctor, but he relies too much on such of inept staff. Angela is rude and inefficient. If he really wants to help his patients he really needs to get rid of her.

Dr. Mangal is the most considerate, gentle, passionate, patient, and informative doctor I've ever been to in my life!!!! He gave me more insight on my disease in a few hours than I have received my entire life from my general practitioners and gynecologist!!!! He has placed my husband and I on a path to conceive and has given me hope to one day have a life pain free !
