best dr ever

Great Visit

February 11, 2019

Dr. Alex Mammen is very professional and always examines the health of my eyes very closely

February 11, 2019

The visit was necessitated by an emergency. I was grateful that I was able to see a specialist on such short notice . My exam was thorough, and everyone I dealt with was professional and courteous.

February 04, 2019

The wait time was excessive. I arrived for a 1 o'clock appointment at 12:10. I left that office at 4:15. I spent approximately 5 minutes with the attending physician, 15 with the fellow. Communication was awful. He recommended follow up in 1 week, no appointments available, still waiting to hear from the office.

January 28, 2019

I value Dr. Mammen's expertise and see him every 3 months for several severe eye conditions. However, I don't like the long waits to see him. This last visit I waited one and a half hours -- that's outrageous. In every other UPMC department I wait no more than 15 minutes. In the eye center it's always more than an hour. That is wrong and does not value my time as a patient. Something should be done about that.

January 28, 2019

Very good doctor. The time waiting is very long most of the time. I am not sure how you change that, but I was in there for two hours, my time with fellow and doctor about 20 minutes.

January 17, 2019

Dr. Mammen and his Fellow were very courteous and provided information that I was able to understand. He addressed all of my concerns. They both were very friendly and took the time to listen and answer my questions.
