I am so impressed with my experience discussing the issues of my health with Dr Mann and his team! Dr Mann is an excellent communicator! His thoughts are very organized descriptive and clear. He also listened very closely and showed genuine empathy. Same for the other 2 people on the call.

I was having a problem getting my next referral sent to UCSF by my DR office because his staff keep leaving but Dr. Mann said he would sent It over and get things going. I am so grateful.

Provider made himself available during his vacation to meet with me. Moved up my appointment by a few weeks. This made me feel valued.
