Dr. Manolis is all you want in a Doctor and Surgeon. He is a caring Professional with a caring staff, who, when I was not feeling well, even though it was my first appointment, had me come in a week early. The Doctors bedside manner is excellent. It was comfortable to discuss any of the issues involved, and indeed, it is quite involved. He was communicative and patient. But more so, he was able to immediately indicate what an entire team of Physicians at a local hospital could not for 11 months allowing me to suffer great pain, and go in the wrong direction to heal. Am now, thankfully scheduled for the required appointments to put me on the road to good health. One can not underestimate the good mood offered by not feeling as though my feet are spinning anymore. Each and every question answered, and at a level easily understood (as previously mentioned). It was although I was on a slow sinking ship and am now on a sleep locomotive moving forward! Another special element in the office, is that one could see the camaraderie between staff members which is a clear indication of the mood and care from the top. Just another of the many positives. Dr. Manolis, which was recommended to me, by a neighbour who boasted about his kindness, a friend from my house of worship and my Brother, a Doctor who heard about him from the community. So my referral is multiplied. Another appointment was made before learning about Dr. Manolis. When advising him about this, he urged me to go. In my opinion, this is the sign of a confident and honest Doctor. He is willing to hear another opinion, and vice versa, shows me even more, he is on the level. Obviously Dr. Manolis is highly recommended. If there were 10 stars, he would receive. Know, when he is ready to set up my surgery, he will have turned every stone and be ready, know as well, he will be there when needed as he has not only shown me, but the others. I am thankful to have found him. You will be too.
Very knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with him as a patient on 2 surgeries he did for meI am back again because I trust him
The best doctor
I was referred to Dr. Manolas by my Primary Physician. Had to wait 6 weeks for an appointment. When I arrived I was surprised to see no COVID distancing practices in effect. About 12 patients were crowded, sitting and standing in the small waiting space. The assistant advised that they had no idea how long my wait would be. I cancelled and made an appt. with another doctor. I have been to many medical offices during this difficult COVID time and every one had distancing practices in effect. Unfortunately I cannot speak for this physician's care however, potential patients should be aware of the lack of recommended distancing practices.
This is an excellent surgeon
One year ago, I met with Dr. Manolas about surgery and I have yet to forget what a wonderful experience I had with him. He is such a caring and gentle doctor, with a great sense of humor and personality, who put me at complete ease about my surgery. I completely trusted him, which is imperative when undergoing surgery. Not to mention, he did a remarkable job. The post-op visits were sincere and I felt that he genuinely cares about doctor-patient relationships. Highly recommend.
Could be better. If the main office answered calls. Calls are re-routed to a full voice mail box. NOT GOOD. AND FUTHER NO CALL BACK.
The best treatment, I had the best treatment! My surgery was fast and I was home the same day! Considering that an hospital is the last place you want to be! The staff is very nice and have a lot of patience .. Thank you all team members of EMU Surgical Center
I am lucky Dr. Panagiotis Manolas, did my lumpectomy. He is a very compassionate doctor with good manners and empathy in his voice. Made me feel secure and in every aspect acted with all his knowledge to order the proper testing to attack the tumor. From the day he examined me took four days to operate and his medical office dealt successfully with my insurance to prepare everything. Since this is a process i am thankful this professional is on my side!
Not only an excellent doctor but a very compassionate and empathetic human being.
When diagnosed with breast cancer dr. Manolas proved to be an excellent choice for my surgery. He explained everything in detail he saved my breast and I’m now cancer free for over twelve years. An excellent doctor and an outstanding personality!
A great doctor with a human heart. Very experienced and careful during the examination. Dr. Manolas listens, explains in depth your health situation and provides you with choices on how to proceed. His approach is very scientific. I am extremely satisfied.
I had a terrible experience with Dr. Manolas, I was referred to see him by my PCP and took a half day from work to see him for a consult. My appointment was at 1:30PM and I arrived at 1PM to make sure I finished any paperwork that may have needed to be done. I waited for 3 hours extremely patiently until I had had enough and asked one of the employees behind the desk when it would be my turn, which he responded I was actually next on the list, and I contently took a seat. Low and behold the next person called was not me, another doctor working with Dr. Manolas in his Bayside location called someone else on the list after me, when I asked the employee I had previously spoken to why someone was taken before me when they had a much later appointment time, he replied “the other doctor is seeing some of Dr. Manolas’s patients, she’s the boss I can’t do anything about it, I’m sorry they aren’t abiding to protocol”. After this I sat and waited and they finally called me in. The other surgeon working with Dr. Manolas called me into a room and said she would be examining me. She gave me no reason why and although I have no problems with a female surgeon examining me for inguinal pain I was a little upset that the doctor I was referred to see couldn’t see me. When I asked her how come Dr. Manolas couldn’t see me she said he was busy with another patient. So I left without being examined, I didn’t speak to anyone, I simply said I would rather not be examined since the person I was referred to see was too busy for me. I called my PCP (who is a great physician) and spoke to the office to inform them of the events. Later that night I get a call from my PCP’s office and they said “oh Dr. Manolas’s office called us and they said it was a misunderstanding the other doctor was just prepping you to see him.” This was a blatant lie as I’ve never heard of another doctor prepping a patient for another, and I had been told otherwise while at the office and seen Dr. Manolas in his office with someone else. I decided not to return to his office and will not return. Two weeks later today, I get a call from his office saying that he was unable to see me that day because he was away on an emergency (another lie) and asked if I could go see him as soon as possible that he would make time for me, I declined. Keeping in mind all the effort and care I put into seeing my patients on time, and providing the best care and service I can for them, I cannot imagine running a business and giving people such a terrible experience as this one. I hope this helps someone out there avoid this same scenario. You can be the best physician, surgeon, Physio, etc. it doesn’t matter if your patients end up feeling the way I felt from this ordeal.
My PCP recommended Dr. Manolas for hernia surgery. He thoroughly explained the surgical process and answered all my questions with care and compassion. He was very reassuring and calming. His partner Dr Patovas is wonderful, she is very understanding, caring and hands on. After my procedure, two days later,I had an emergency appointment with her and she was great. The office staff are friendly but there is a lack of communication whereas patients waiting for hours without any notification.
This doctor actually cares about his patients. I recently had surgery breast surgery which was nerve wracking to begin with. He made me feel confident that I was gonna be ok. Along with his staff he made it super easy. He has empathy for his patients and he loves being a doctor. He as the best bed side manner. I highly recommend Dr Manolas. He’s the Best!!!
I was referred to Dr. Manolas by my SO’s best friend, after noticing a bloody discharge from my right breast. The wait time was slightly longer than anticipated, but the wait was worth it. Dr. Manolas was gentle, caring and thorough in both my physical examination and the test he ordered for me at Lenox Hill Hospital. He treats me and my SO like a family member and I am so grateful to him for his incredibly warm bedside manner and thoroughness.

Depending on the results of my tests, he may be performing surgery soon... I have no doubt that I’m in great hands if that ends up being the case!
My name is Ana Malpartida and I want to thank God for coming across Dr. Manolas, he is very professional and kind human being that gives confidence and security to his patients. I felt very safe and calm at the hands of Dr. Manolas on the day of my procedure that was on January 31, 2018. For the rest of my life I will always be grateful for you. Dr. Manolas.
My husband was suffering from intense pain due to a sizeable lipoma (10cm x 6cm) in his pelvic area pressing on the sciatic nerve. Dr Manolas performed the delicate surgery and successfully removed it entirely. Throughout our visits Dr Manolas is compassionate, attentive, easy to talk to, light hearted and so very kind. Once while in the waiting room Dr Manolas walked in and greeted all with "Hello beautiful people!" Dr Manolas is experienced, caring, humble and truly dedicated to his patients.
