"Dr. Mani is an excellent physician. He is very caring and gentle. He is the only doctor that I would feel comfortable injecting my eye. He is a very intelligent doctor and he goes out of his way to make sure my eyes are healthy."

"The staff and Doctor Mani are always so welcoming and efficient. I come down from Washington in the winter and it's always a pleasure to see him. He has expanded since I last visited him and he has several doctors that help him. It was to my liking that in one case Doctor Mani called his colleague and asked him for a second opinion right then and there. I realized that this is exactly what is in my best interest, Doctor Pons agreed with the treatment and now more than ever I am sure the treatment that is being done is what's best. I highly recommended Doctor Mani, and trust me when I say... you will never feel the same about any other Doctor :)"

"I really have to say that at first I was skeptical about coming with Dr. Mani specially since the eyes are a very sensitive and delicate part of the body but with his knowledge and good manners he changed my mind. As soon as I walked in the clinic I was cordially greeted. I only waited for an hour and then i was back in the room with the Dr. He is such a wonderful caring guy. He really goes above and beyond to explain your condition and what is going on with your eyes. I really recommend this Dr. overall my experience was great and I wish we could have more Dr.s like him in the valley."
