Dr. Manzon was recommended to me by my mother who also has her as a rheumatologist. I saw that she was the best care provider my mother had seen a very long time and so I wanted to also see her for my own health issues. Not only did she thouroughly listen to my symptoms, she gave me a diagnosis I had been searching years to figure out and that many other doctors could not pinpoint. She did all this in only one appointment because she listened and did all the appropriate testing. She also gave me reading materials to take home about my diagnosis so I could be informed about my health.
