Dr. Manka was excellent.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
The amount of time spent with all involved in my care was excellent. It was not no in for 5 minutes and out in 10 minutes which I appreciated. The time spent was very good. It allowed not only time for explanations from the medical staff but it also allowed me time to ask questions or address my concerns about my health.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Dr Manka is excellent and I am pleased with her care.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
I have had asthma for about 15 years and have never understood so well exactly what asthma is until my appt with Dr. Manka. She did an excellent job of explaining everything she talked about.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
I wish I could have had a sleep test ordered and home oxygen prescribed. I also wish someone had done an echo cardiogram - they would have discovered my shortness of breath issue was not pulmonary.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
I have only seen her twice, she was very good, not sure how she will be in the long term or if there is a major issue how she will handle it

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
