awful! if there was a way to give this establishment 0 stars i certainly would! it was a dreadful experience from the time i walked in and was "greeted" by staff member until i left dr tonys room (aka anthony d mangiafico). he was HIGHLY recommended and it was awful. "man" thinks he walks on water. stay away. thanks and have a good day.
Professional practice! Dr Emiliani and Dr Tony are certifiably excellent practitioners in their fields! Have been a patient for well over three years and no complaints. They listen to me, and work with me: they treat me...not just the symptoms. I give this practice 5 Stars of 5!
Dr. Tony - (Anthony D. Mangiafico) - loved him - but he unfortunately made inappropriate comments ;-(
My daughter went to Dr Emiliani for about 4 years. The entire time she went to see him, he was rude to us, told me I didn't understand my own daughter, wouldn't listen to anything I had to say about my own daughter's behavior, accused me of thinking I "must be a doctor" because I asked questions he didn't want to answer, and was generally a jerk to me, and my daughter, every time we went in. On days my husband would bring her in, he would say "Oh, so your wife, The Doctor, didn't come today?". I questioned him because almost everytime we went to see him he would change my daughter's medications. It finally got to the point where the medications he was giving her put her in the hospital : She had lost over 40 pounds, was lethargic, was shaking all the time, and couldn't hold a simple conversation for longer then 2 minutes. I went to Dr E several times and voiced my concerns...he would just look at me smuggly, and say that HE was the doctor, not me. Finally, when my daughter passed out at home 3 seperate times, I said enough is enough, and took her to the hospital, at MCV. The head of Childrens Psychiatrics came and saw her and told me that almost all of the 5 medications Dr E was giving her were unnecessary, and in fact, had made her sick. He also told me if I hadn't brought her in when I did, she may have ended up with perminant damage from the medications. Through him, we were able to get her into another doctor's office right away. I never went back to Dr E's office. If you have your child seeing Dr Emiliani, stop right now and find another Dr. As soon as my daughter started going to another doctor, it was like she was a completely different child......she has made great improvements and is doing more than well. Thank God for MCV....they saved my daughter's life!
Dr Tony – We recently moved here and I was very nervous in looking for a new therapist, but after a couple of months of appointments, I am happy with Dr. Tony's care and the friendly office staff and the best part..it is a short drive from Ft. Lee. He was highly recommended by a neighbor and I refuse to believe him to be "unprofessional" in anyway.
Unprofessional experience with Dr. Tony – I am also very concerned reading about this “individual involved” that Dr. Tony Mangiafico writes about. Is this indeed a place of great care and safety for patients and for those accompanying patients?!
The complaint was dismissed – This is Dr Tony again.
I am pleased to announce that the complaint filed against my professional practice with the Department of Health Professions has been dismissed without condition. The board acknowledged the ill intent behind the complaint and motivations of the individual involved. To assure the safety of all who visit the Behavior and Stress Center including my current and prospective clients the office has implemented significant security measures and law enforcement authorities are involved. Thank you. Dr Tony
Wrong Prescription prescribed – I have been going to Dr. Emiliani for a while now and yes he put down my first psychiatrist and says he said he doesn't understand why they would prescribe me something that actually worked for me then he goes and prescribes me something unrelated to what I even need to begin with after we sat there and talked for a while about my needs and he even agreed to prescribe to me what I really need. I went home and looked up the prescription and it had nothing to do at all with what is going on with me actually the opposite of what I need.
dr. tony - good news - i'm sure your husband joel is pleased too!!
Draft â?? Unapproved
VIRGINIA BOARD OF NURSING
July 1, 2010
TIME AND PLACE: The informal conferences held before an Agency Subordinate of the Board of Nursing were convened at 9:00 A.M., on June 8, 2010 in Board Room 3, Department of Health Professions, 9960 Mayland Drive, Suite 201, Richmond, Virginia.
SUBORDINATE: Janet B. Younger, R.N., P.N.P., Ph.D.
STAFF PRESENT: Linda Kleiner, R.N., Discipline Case Manager
Amanda Mitchell, Adjudication Specialist
OTHERS PRESENT: Leigh Levi, law student from University of Richmond
Angela Starkweather, instructor from Virginia Commonwealth University
SCHEDULED: Anthony Mangiafico, RN, 0001-147063; CNS 0015-000629
Mr. Mangiafico appeared, accompanied by attorney, David Hudgins.
Mr. Mangiafico was informed a recommended decision will be made and mailed to him within ninety days.
This recommendation will be presented to the full Board; if accepted, an Order will be entered. As provided by law, this decision shall become a Final Order thirty days after service of such order on Mr. Mangiafico unless a written request to the Board for a formal hearing on the allegations made against him is received from Mr. Mangiafico within such time. If service of the order is made by mail, three additional days shall be added to that period. Upon such timely request for a formal hearing, the Order shall be vacated.
Overall... Good Experience – Friendly staff, lobby was full. My experience with Dr. was good. He took time to explain me my condition and prescription is working great for me. He recommended therapy and my female therapist is a good listener. It's hard to find a good Psychiatrist in this area that knows about what to prescribe the first time, gives plenty of refills only need to follow up as needed.
I would recommend to others.
