Dr. Manka is very calm and collected and is very thorough in obtaining information about my condition. She spent a great deal of time with me discussing my symptoms and her diagnoses and treatment plan. I haven't had a physician do that yet with respect to my condition.

The staff (drs., nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse assistant on the adult care unit were excellent. The respiratory therapists were great!
