Have you seen Dr. Mannie Joel?
December 2nd, 2016Patient
Dr. Joel, as well as his PA David Lague and staff are compassionate and caring with patients. Dr.Joel does not just prescribe pain meds, he is always looking for surgical alternatives to address or alleviate the pain. One can call for a ny reason and staff is always courteous. I have had chronic pain for years and was very fortunate when I found Dr. Joel.
November 8th, 2016Dr. Joel goes from checked-out to highly unprofessional.
My experience with Dr. Joel included: 1. Him adding more and more meds 2. Dr. Joel "pushing" his solutions even after I've said no (pumps,etc.) 3. My asking to reduce meds 4. Dr. Joel would suggest a trial of a new drug...it would never happen. In six months he'd suggest the same thing, it would never happen..... 5. I asked about being charged my co-pay for an office when a) I was just picking up a prescription and b) I had met my OOP max for the year. Dr. Joel YELLED at me in the reception area that they weren't making money, that I was receiving a service and needed to pay for it. Then he proceeded to suggest that perhaps his office was no long a therapeutic environment for me. I was stunned. His unprofessional and erratic behavior is certainly not what I want to see from my doctor. Bye-bye!

I have been a patient of Dr Joel for many years due to chronic pain and have seen their staff change twice in the last two years. they were once the best around but have changed drastically as to patient care. I have lifetime coverage for meds and treatment but the office refuses to respond to the insurance companies denials to pay for meds by not responding to time sensitive requests for reasons for all medications until I bring it up during my monthly office visits. By that time the response period has passed and I an being told by the office to pay out of pocket saying they don't have time to open every letter they receive. I'm sorry to say they have dropped to the lower part of the list of good care providers.

I would be lost without Dr. Joel. I was in so much pain that all I did was pace around the house, or lie on the couch for days. When I found him through a friend, he immediatly eased my pain. I have been seeing Dr. Joel for 6 years now, and as my disease has gradually gotten worse, my pain has been treated with just the right medications and surgerys to keep me upright and getting my life back. Thank you Dr. Joel

I had several practitioners misdiagnose me over 5 long months of agonizing pain, giving me palliative treatment. Had they sent me out to a highly skilled practitioner as Dr. Joel things may not have progressed as far as it did. His clinical skills are superb, a man ahead of his time. Truely a man who cares more for his patient and how to make them pain free, then on how to "cash in on the system", as others may do. Thank you Dr. Joel

Dr. Joel is the best pain doctor I have found. They have increased their staff recently and things run much more efficiently. The one caveat I would add is if you are like me and tend to understate things, you can't do that here. If however you give him an honest assessment of your pain he is very good at addressing your pain. I Have been seeing him for 10yrs now and wouldnt, trade drs. for anything. He also writes great rebuttals to insurance companies when they try to yank you off of your meds because they cost too much etc.
