    Dr. Maniloff, I want to thank you for all of the many years of tremendous care. Your medical expertise and thoroughness is going to be sorely missed by many. Your true desire to help those who are struggling in pain has always been noticed and admired. You always took the time to listen well and provide thoughtful care for me. You truly had a calling to meet the needs of many that were just trying to have a normal day. Thank you for your friendship and management of my complicated issues. It will be hard for AOCC to replace you. I wish you the best in your retirement. You deserve many years of enjoyment with your family and friends! Sincerely, Deborah Gardner

    As I write this, I am literally crying. YOU CHANGED MY LIFE! I really thought I would be disabled for the remainder of my life, but through you and your knowledge of medicine, I live a happy and productive life all these years later. You laughed, joked, and even set me straight a couple of times, but most of all, YOU GENUINELY CARED.

    I would always tell you that I trusted your suggestions, and if you told me to eat 100 jalapeno peppers a day to get better, by golly, I would have tried to choke ’em down…lol

    I am and will forever be thankful you were put in my path.

    Take care and go and enjoy your life.

    Dr.Maniloff is the kindest, most compassionate care-giver I’ve ever had. My battle with Lupus presented challenges for both of us, yet he was constantly seeking ways to treat me when the main Lupus medication didn’t work.
    I will miss you very much, Dr.Maniloff! Thank you for listening to me and truly making me feel heard. Best wishes to you and your family as you begin this new chapter of your life!

    I have been with Dr. Maniloff since 1994. He is a GEM of a doctor in EVERYWAY! He is a one of a kind Doctor and friend! He has helped me through many lupus health trials in my life, but most importantly he helped me to become a mother of my two precious daughters. I wish you all the happiness you deserve in your next adventure with your precious family. You will always hold a special place in my heart forever and I will miss you dearly!
    God Bless!

    Hi Dr. Maniloff and congratulations on your retirement! We are so happy for you and your family and hope that you get to do all the things you didn’t have time to do before. You can retire knowing that you always gave your best and did your best to help your patients. Just as there is a difference in people of all professions, there is a difference in doctors too. Throughout all my health care problems, and I’ve had many, I’ve met and been treated by many physicians. Some gave me a few minutes of their time, gave me a prescription and then had to be reminded of my name and conditions over and over again. You were one of the exceptions! Not only did you listen, but you genuinely cared. You did everything you could do to help and treat me in the best way possible. You not only remembered my name–you remembered my history and you knew what worked to make me better and what didn’t. That means the world to someone who is in my position and to my wife who works constantly to help me. You’ve become a friend and we were always happy to see you and grateful for your time and help. Thank You,
    God Bless You, and
    Always Know How Much You Are Appreciated,
    Phil and Judy Zimmer

    I hope you are enjoying your retirement and want to thank you for such wonderful care and concern as your patient. Your awareness of all aspects of my health situation was like no doctor I have I encountered. (and there has been dozens and dozens.) I wish you and your family a happy and healthy 2022. You are missed greatly!
