Havebeen seeing opthomologists for about 7 years now for a chronic eye disease. Have seendrscome and go with UPMC. I cannot say enough good things about Dr Mamenn. He takes the time to explain things and listen to what i have to say. Spent time last appt looking at perscription prices on line to find an affordable choice for me. The only issue i have is his demand. Doesnt seem to have enough openings for patients. Perhaps this is related to post op surgery appts asi know he does surgeries as well. My appt was cancelledby UPMC and i had to wait 3 months to get a new appt. But it wasnt an emergency so it was fine. Other thanthat, i highly recommend Dr Mammenn and the UPMC Eye Center in Monroeville. The entire staff is wonderful.

Nurse Deb has a very soothing voice and demeanor. She was very patient with me during the eye scans since I tend to flinch and blink a lot during these types of exams. Deb was quite informative and thorough when answering my questions and explaining the process of LASIK. Dr. Mammen is also informative and thorough. I fully trust him with my eyes and upcoming surgery. He is also very accomodating and flexible with his schedule. I was surprised that he was able to accommodate my previously made commitments and change my surgery date seemingly at the drop of a hat. I appreciate that immensely.

Dr Mammen was running 2 hrs behind on appts. I spent 3 hours in the freezing waiting rooms having things done as if it was an annual checkup--it was not. I came because I had been sick with ear infections and sore throats and my eyes were extremely red and seeping. I had to apply warm compresses multiple times a day as my eyes were stuck shut. I was worried about an eye infection

I really like Dr. Mammen but waiting 2 hours to be seen is too much.

My previous doctor retired and Dr. Mamman was assigned to me. This was my very first visit with this doctor. Overall experience was very good.

Very satisfied

April 28, 2016

The doctor spoke very softly and I couldn't hear him most of the time concerning my eyes which did upset me

April 26, 2016

the staff on the 6th and 7th floor are very courteous and helpful. I have never had any problems with any of them.Always respectful and helpful. Always accomodating.

April 21, 2016

My experiences with this office and Dr Mammen have been exceptional. He found and treated and resolved an eye problem I had for 4 months(!!!) unsuccessfully treated by others

April 14, 2016

Very rude
