I love Dr. Mangan as my knee guy. He is so compassionate and caring and shows the patient great patience and understanding. I left IMS specifically to find Dr. Mangan for shots because no one can give me shots in my knee so that I do not feel the needle like he does it.

dr mangan is amazing
Mar 26, 2019
Dr. M (do not remember how to spell his name) was excellent. He explained the options and their consequence to me and helped me make a decision. What I liked best was he did not tell me what to do but explained everything well enough that I have confidence going forward.
Mar 26, 2019
I made my appointment in the morning and everything went well. Before seeing the doctor I had to get a MRI and that was handled well. When that was done I was seeing the doctor about 20 minutes or so before my time. Has never happened to me before, that is, getting in prior to my scheduled time.
Mar 26, 2019
This is my first, and only so far, experience but if the appointments in the future go as well as this one did I can highly recommend.

Dr. Mangan did rotator cuff surgery on both my shoulders in 2011 & 2012. I came back to him with this issue because of my confidence in him from before.
Feb 7, 2019
Dr Mangan is of the utmost caliber, highest standard, caring and informative doctor I have encountered.
Feb 1, 2019
I searched for Dr. Mangan until I found him at your facility. He is the best surgeon I could have had in the past and that was one reason I needed him again. Don't let him leave, okay???
Jan 22, 2019
He's awesome.
Dec 2, 2018
The doctor was very nice & professional. Ive had the same problem with my other shoulder. In comparison, my other dr was "this is what I do & I believe we can fix it". This dr seemed less sure and said there only a 30% chance of it working. Maybe thats true ???. I just didnt have that doubtful
Dec 1, 2018
Dr. Mangan is old school and by that, I mean a REAL PRO!
Nov 23, 2018
I have already given two of Dr. Mangan's cards out to friends of mine. He takes his time during my visit with him. Answers my questions without making me feel he is rushing through my appointment and on to his next. Which I really appreciate.
Nov 23, 2018
As I have stated I have recommended this Dr. Mangan to others that I know and feel they deserve the best. Something which I found at your Abrazo Medical Group and Dr. Mangan.
