“Saw another ortho doctor who said the only option for me was amputation of my foot. Found Dr. Mangone and consulted him. He said that was never an option, and he could make me close to pain-free compared to what I had been. He was right. I am so happy with him!”

“This was before the Pandemic, but still important because what Dr. Mangone said has continued to be a solution. I came to him because of a diagnosis of midfoot arthritis (not by him). I had been sent to a shoe store for orthotics help, which did help for a time, but then the pain in the foot came back. I then got a diagnosis of the need for x-ray guided injection in that joint and then probably surgery freezing that joint. that was not what I wanted. I'd heard that Dr. Mangone is very good and looked him up. I do best with physicians who have their hands still in academe in some way. Dr. Mangone certainly does. And it paid off for me. He was very circumspect in his attention to my situation and said that my problem was not arthritis but a very tight tendon or muscle in the back of my leg. We had something scheduled, but the pandemic interfered -- I have an extreme respiratory vulnerability, mild diabetes and then was 78 years old. He had suggested some stretch exercises, which he sent to me via message on the portal, but I said I had done triathlons in my younger years and knew many stretches and would try them. He agreed. And it all worked and still does. He showed that interest in related issues not directly at the site of discomfort--it is not just those with the continuing wide purview of interests grounded in further academic/research work who are circumspect this way, of course. However, in my experience, it is an almost sure bet that someone with his fingers still in the research/teaching pie is a good bet if that also is combined with a strong, natural other orientation. And after 40 years of consulting with professionals, leaders, workers, teachers, etc. about work and career success, what I've said is not just my opinion but well-grounded in research on workplace effectiveness: the distinction is always that interpersonal acumen and skilled deployment of interpersonal competencies are key factors, even the deciding ones, in excellence. I was privileged to have experienced that in action with Dr. Mangone. I hope he will get to read this, and I should have said it long ago.”

“Dr. King was very professional, yet not so business-like that he wasn't open to my concerns. I really enjoyed our discussion and felt very informed. The Radiology Technician was super nice also.”
