“I have seen four different providers. The two I have seen the most are Dr. Manista and Dr. Abbott. Both have been very professional and kind. They have always made me feel comfortable and have answered my questions. I have given the names of these two doctors to many people because I feel that they would be just as professional and kind to anyone coming to see them.”

“Very satisfied. Everyone in this office is so efficient and they work with the patient on scheduling so that, for those of us coming from the Westport, WA area, the conflicts are few if any. Also, usually there isn't a long wait past your scheduled appointment time. Dr. Manista is very understanding as to a person's situation when it comes to the type care the patient receives. Mine needed surgery but that said, the surgery could have been worse for me than just trying to make do and be careful. I chose the latter. I'm so thankful to have Dr. Manista as my surgeon and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a surgeon.”
– Carolyn C.
“Wonderful doctor and a better man. I loved the care he showed to both me and my wife. If I ever had to go through anything like this again....he would be the doctor I would ask for.”
– Howard E.
“Dr. Manista did back surgery and follow up care on me. He has done an amazing job and I have recommended him to a couple of people. I have had shoulder injury care from Dr. Jarvis and he is also an amazing doctor. I am looking at having some work done on my knee and will be consulting Dr. Jarvis. I will have to have a second back surgery and will definitely have it done by Dr. Manista. My only complaint about the service is your doctors are so popular that it can sometimes take a little bit to get an appointment to see them, but they are worth the wait, I won't go anywhere else.”
– Lynn B.
“I've never been treated so good and had such a good doctor. I have been telling everyone having Dr. Manista has done me so well, I'm glad I was his patient. I highly recommend Dr. Manista to anyone who needs back surgery.”

“EVERY visit and all surgeries have been above my expectations both personally and professionally. Dr. Manista is very caring and attentive during each visit. I always look forward to my appointments with him. 100% confidence in this physician. Olympia Orthopaedic Associates is top notch in every aspect.”
– Curtis K.
“Everyone there is very friendly and courteous, you are always treated like you are important to them. There doesn't seem to be a long wait time---which is real nice. Dr. Manista is awesome! He tells you how it is, and shows that he cares for his patients and makes sure they have what they need for their treatment and recovery. I would highly recommend him to any and all.”
– Linda C.
“He is awesome, knowledgeable, and kind. Has a great team. I feel he always had my best interest in mind.”
– Angie S.
“Best doctor that I have ever had – love this guy. I wish I would've had my other two surgeries done by him – very respectable, has a great personality, and cares! I had a very good experience with Olympia Surgery Center. Everybody that I had contact with I was very very happy with. I have passed out your name and the doctor's name because you guys are the best. I love the doctor I've never had such great care. I can't say enough about Dr. Andrew Manista. I feel he is the best and his personality really helps a lot. He cared about the patient, and I have not had that experience before! Thank you! Also, my physical therapist was great.”
– Linda G.
“Dr. Manista made me feel comfortable from the first visit. When he said, “I can fix that,” I believed him and had complete confidence in him. He answered all my questions. I also liked Omar very much. Another thing I liked about Dr. Manista was that he plays the double bass. Strong, nimble fingers! My son and grandson both play the double bass, too. I am glad I had the surgery. I am very much better.”
– Marjorie L.
“I cannot sing enough praises and gratitude I have for Dr. Manista, his entire team. and staff. When Lance and I met him, I was at one of the lowest points in my life with something I had gone to doctors for 40 years and I was always told “walk, lose weight, eat vegan and rinse and repeat”. Dr. Manista stopped and listened to every word both of us said to him. Then after testing and trying a couple of quick fix things, he operated and he changed my and our life for the better. He has never once judged me, or made me feel like I did not know my own body like all the other doctors have done. If I could have this wonderful surgeon and person as my all-around doctor, I would be happy, but he has dealt with my fears, my emotions and sense of humor. . . I am sure no matter what you have done in your life you are a great source of pride for your parents wife and family. We love you for caring so deeply about your profession and patients. Thank you from my heart and spine. I love you!”
– Carlene A.
“I like Dr. Manista very much. He did a very professional job of treating me. He is getting me injections rather than going for surgery right now, hoping I won't need to have surgery. I would recommend him to anyone. My wife will be going to him soon for her back problems.”
– Billy C.

“Great doc. Kind, thorough, and empathetic. Takes the time to listen to you and explain things without rushing you.”
– Kelly D.
“I had a great visit with Dr. Manista. I was and am still trying to decide to go ahead and have a spinal fusion or continue to use cortisone shots as long as I can. Dr. Manista encouraged me to continue using the shots until they stopped working. That was not the attitude I expected. I figured it would be surgery or nothing, but it was nothing of the sort. I'm grateful for that attitude and the time that he took with me. Thanks.”
