    I would like to begin by saying that I read all of the reviews about Dr. Mangal – both positive and negative – before I came in. It is true that some of his ways of doing things are inefficient, including the 90 minute “endometriosis information session,” crammed into his office with 10 other women and their mothers/significant others, and the amount of time you will spend in his office for an appointment, which ranges from 3-7 hours. While Dr. Mangal could use some help in how his medical practice is run, there is no denying the level of care, compassion, skill and knowledge that he possesses. He is an ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY when it comes to endometriosis – maybe one of the most knowledgeable doctors in the country. Over the past year I have been to several gynecologists, a urologist, a gastroenterologist, a pelvic floor physical therapist, and had a (probably unnecessary) gallbladder removal surgery. My symptoms included excruciatingly painful menstrual cramps, long and heavy periods, constant backaches, constant aching pelvic pains, intestinal discomfort/IBS, urinary urgency and frequency, and pelvic muscle spasms. I was told by the gynecologists that there was nothing wrong with me. I had normal colonoscopy and normal urodynamics test results. Finally, I mentioned to one of my doctors that I had been surgically diagnosed with endometriosis 8 years ago during an ovarian cyst removal. I don’t know why the doctors never bothered looking at those surgical records and piecing everything together, but my mentioning of it finally set everything into motion. (Lesson learned: you are your own best advocate!) I was finally referred to a good gynecologist, who found hemorrhagic cysts on both ovaries. She decided that it was too severe to operate on herself, and referred me to Dr. Mangal. Last week I had surgery with Dr. Mangal, and he found extensive endo all over my bladder, ureters, colon, rectum, pelvic ligaments and muscles, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and pelvic wall. The surgery took 4 hours and included an overnight hospital stay, but he was able to remove everything laparoscopically. When I first found out about the hemorrhagic cysts I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to conceive in the future, but now I know, thanks to Dr. Mangal, I will be able to have kids one day. A few words of advice, plan to spend at least 4 hours every time you go for an appt. This will be frustrating, but I would much rather spend half of my day waiting for a doctor who is an expert and knows what he is doing, then spend 30 minutes just to be brushed off. Also, on the day of surgery, plan to be there a LONG time. My surgery didn’t start until 530pm, and I arrived there at 12:30. This was the most annoying part, especially since I hadn’t eaten in 2 days and hadn’t had any water for almost 18 hours. If you have endometriosis and want a doctor who is extremely compassionate, thorough, knowledgeable and above all an EXPERT, Dr. Mangal is your guy.
