Dr Manzon has always been patient and respectful when discussing my health concerns. I am comfortable discussing health issues with Dr Manzon and feel she listens carefully. We did not discuss treatments for bone loss at this appointment, but have thoroughly discussed options at previous appointments. I believe Dr Manzon did ask if I had thought more about treatment or had any questions about it. She has shared an online forum where treatment options are discussed, as well.

Reviewed on Aug 6, 2020

I've seen ~4 different Rheumatologists since having been diagnosed with Lupus and Dr Manzon is far and away the most attentive and compassionate. In fact, I drive over an hour to see her. Autoimmune disease is such a tough disease - requiring a DR to so closely listen to patients as there is no way to definitely confirm diagnosis. Dr Manzon asks a myraid of questions but then also leaves time to listen to additional questions and concerns. I feel comfortable sharing my frustrations with symptoms and she is ALWAYS open to my suggestions as well. I feel like we are a team allowing for bi-directional communication which empowers me as the patient to have more ownership and accountability of my care plan. I highly recommend Dr Manzon!
