Dr. David Manning is absolutely outstanding--supremely intelligent, super compassionate and an excellent communicator with his patients. Dr. Manning demonstrated a supreme interest in quality; resulting in an extremely low infection rate. Dr. Manning's Fellow, Dr. Christian Thomas, explained the procedure and associated risks--answering my ten questions, which eased all concerns moving forward with the procedure. I am confident I will have positive outcomes. Thank you so much, Dr. Manning and Dr. Thomas!!!

Dr. Manning is a wonderful doctor. He knows what he is talking about, listens to what I have to say, and comes up with a solution. Dr. Manning has a very professional and kind approach to his work. However his "fellow" could use a lot more training with working with people. He was more interested in telling me what he knew than listening to what I knew. He shot down what the Immediate Care doctor had to say as well as when I went to mention about how the situation occurred, he told me that he knew all about it and would not let me finish speaking which is rude on many levels. I know that Northwestern is a training hospital and I like meeting everyone and working with everyone. I am a teacher and I understand that everyone needs to learn and practice but the "fellow" has already gone through quite a bit of training.
