Between this appointment and last appointment with Dr. Mandych, it was like night and day. [...] He insulted my job, life choices, anything he could get his hands on and claimed I couldn't take a joke. However, he was still being a very VERY thorough doctor so I looked past his awful bedside manner and personality and came back. [...] He was incredible. He was unbelievably caring, he listened to everything I had to say or had to ask. He genuinely cared about my problem and wanted to help. Without giving details he ended up going above and beyond to set up a plan to help in ways that he absolutely didn't need to. It means so much that he did this and that he more than made up for the last experience. An apology is nice, but actions to really show you're sorry mean more and he is clearly doing the work to improve his behavior toward patients, at least in my case. It's appreciated.

Very rude, cut me off as I was explaining my child's history, dismissive, condescending.

This provider obviously knows what he is doing. He could slow down just a bit during explaination of treatments.

Initially any concerns were explained away by the provider and I had to fight to be heard and validated. After I continued advocating for myself, he was more concerned about my symptoms and listened to me more. I wish he had listened more early on and didn't try to brush me off.

I'm usually pleased with our appointments with Dr. Mandych, but I felt kind of dismissed this visit. I understand I'm not the doctor, but I feel like I have educated input. I felt he could have approached me a little differently even though he disagreed with my thoughts.

Nov 19, 2023


Dr. Mandych explains things clearly so that patients/people can understand.

Nov 15, 2023


Mother filling out for 6 year old child. Provider could have explained better what he was going to do to my child before just doing it.

Nov 13, 2023


I would never refer this doctor to anyone he showed no care at all to help me with the health concern that I have going on right now

Sep 03, 2023


This visit to be seen by Dr. Mandych was a waste of time. [...] After a brief visit, and I had more questions about my condition, his hand was on the door knob. He was done and couldn't get out fast enough.

Aug 21, 2023


He was terrible. [...]

Aug 19, 2023


I feel like Dr. Mandych listens to my concerns and takes my thoughts into consideration, which I appreciate.

Aug 12, 2023


The doctor was a very nice & respectful person!

Jul 14, 2023


[...] He was rushed. I left very upset.

Jun 26, 2023


Very good doctor

Jun 23, 2023


The doctor is very knowledgeable.

May 21, 2023


Empathetic and appeared to be a good listener.

May 18, 2023


I have already recommended him to my friend!

Apr 23, 2023


He is very knowledgeable but brushed aside any effort on my part to explain the injury and subsequent ramnifications

Mar 11, 2023


The first time I saw this provider he was attentive and explained my condition in complete detail. During this visit he seemed to be in a hurry to get to whatever he had to do next my appointment was at 2:00 and he was walking away from me as I was talking at 2:05. I was trying to ask questions about my conditions and steps I needed to take and he was literally walking out the door, I was very disappointed with this visit.

Mar 08, 2023


Dr. Mandych is in my opinion, one of the best specialist providers I have worked with. He is a no-nonsense but very thorough physician. He identified my issues, did more testing and labs than my previous specialist for the same problem and provided the exact care and medication I needed to solve those issues. Both UR Medicine and I are fortunate to have him and his staff serving us.

Feb 23, 2023


Very stern, no bedside manner

Feb 19, 2023


All good

I could not call that camera making a trip up and down my nose a good experience! The rest of the visit was enjoyable.

Jan 14, 2023


Condescending and downright unprofessional on so many levels. Refused to help me with my issue I came to him for help for. [...] The ABSOLUTELY WORST doctor I've EVER encountered. Doesn't care at all.

Dec 16, 2022


I've already recommended him to two colleagues.

Dec 01, 2022


Very thoughtful and helpful, excellent engagement with me.

I would rate Dr. Mandych and his team as one of the top providers in UR. I have several UR Providers and I would rate him as one of the best. Also an excellent facility which seems to have all the needs on-site. I had a culture done at one of my visits and results came back quickly.

Oct 30, 2022


The care provider went the extra step in doing a culture sample from the "gunk" in my ear canal which results indicate bacterial types which are causing my issues. They also prescribed before the result were in on the culture, medications to immediately start treating the cause of my problems.

Sep 19, 2022


I have had many surgeries in my life but this one was one of the most professionally handled ones. The doctir and surgical team were great. The surgery was a text book surgery. No complications due to my expert doctor. I highly recomment treatment being done with Dr. Mandych and his team! Thank you Dr. Mandych and Strong Memorial Surgical team for my great care and your service!

Even though my appointment was a little delayed when Dr. Mandych arrived, I did not feel rushed nor did he.

Aug 25, 2022


The provider was really grate and helpful

Aug 19, 2022


Dr. Mandych is very knowledgeable and caring. He is one of my favorite doctors

Aug 13, 2022


Dr. Alexander Mandych was extremely understanding with my anxiety I was experiencing while anticipating the pain I may feel as he worked on my ear. With recent trauma to my ear drum he took great care and talked me through the procedure by coaching my breathing and focusing on a fixed spot on the wall. He worked quickly and did an amazing job. He explained everything completely. As much of a difficult patient I was, he took excellent care of me medically and emotionally. Thank you Dr. Mandych! Hope to never need your services again, but If I do, I will feel so much better going into it knowing I'll get the best care from you!

Very satisfied with Dr. Mandych.He quickly established a comfortable rapport, was professional, determined how my travelPlans might influence my condition and provided helpful tips.

May 06, 2022


Dr. Mandich had a lot of information to deliver and he did so with a little humor. I think that helped me absorb the info.

May 04, 2022


I appreciated Dr. Mandych's "teaching: of the Nose and Throat. I enjoyed watching the video of the scope exam. I wish the appointment lasted longer to learn more (but that would have held up the next patient which would not have been nice of me!) :)

Apr 21, 2022


I love this provider. He always listens, gives me enough time & explains things so I understand. He also is pleasant & has a sense of humor! Very important!

Apr 01, 2022


[...] I left disgusted, and furious with his behavior. I have already discouraged friend and family from making an apt with him

Mar 26, 2022


No problems.

Dr. Mandych is awesome.
