I would like to thank Dr. Manugian and his staff for the excellent service I received during my visit in August. I came there unable to walk on my right foot. After seeing another doctor, I came to MOG for a second opinion. Dr. Manugian took an assessment of my foot and did an excellent job in treating me.
The staff was courteous while maintaining their professionalism. I am doing well and would gladly recommend anyone to Dr. Manugian.
Thank you again for the treatment.
