"Dr. Mjanger performed the DaVinci Robotic Surgery on me for Vaginal Prolapse in February with excellent results. He is very skilled in both knowledge and performance. I would highly recommend him to anyone having this type of surgery. His bedside manner is awesome, he is very caring and I never felt rushed with any post-op visits."
