Health Tips, Stories, and News featuring Dr. Mandarano

About Dr. Mandarano

Philosophy of care

My philosophy starts with making sure I fully understand you and any health issues and needs you may have, and then addressing them with you and perhaps with a specialist or other members of the care team for your optimum health.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine because I wanted to combine my desire to help people and my love of science. After spending several years as a pharmaceutical research scientist, I felt something was missing – and that something was working with people.

Community involvement

I am a past member of Hands Healing Hearts, a non-profit that promotes touch therapy for people with critical or chronic illness.

Personal interests

My personal interests include exercising, playing guitar and cooking.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
