Dr. Mann was my primary care physician. He was the best. And one who is close to impossible to replace. I always enjoyed my appointments, loved his sense of humor and he cared for my brother David as well.

I will always remember the day I met this wonderful Mann...as he watched me walk in the door...the new girlfriend of his young son who had just returned from California! He looked at Scott and smiled that amazing MANN smile and welcomed me with open arms...and I never felt judgement only love and acceptance. Thanks Papa MANN...you raised some of the best people I know (one of your best accomplishments of so many) and you always impressed Me with your kindness and compassion and love for your children. Shine with the stars!
