Dr. Delia Manjoney comes from a family that includes several physicians—namely, her father, two of her uncles and four siblings. “Having family members as medical professionals gives me a different perspective on things,” she says. She graduated magna cum laude from Roanoke College before earning her medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine. She completed her internship and residency in pediatrics at the University of Texas Children’s Medical Center and a partial fellowship in pediatric cardiology at UCSF before she made the decision to go into ophthalmology. Ophthalmology, she says, is a “nice blend of patient contact, strong interpersonal relationships and surgery,” adding that “it is very rewarding to be able to restore someone’s vision.”
Dr. Manjoney practiced comprehensive ophthalmology with her father for 15 years before going into solo practice. She specializes in cataract surgery, treatment of glaucoma and general ophthalmology. About three years ago, she began to offer cosmetic procedures because some of her female patients were expressing a desire to look younger and she welcomed the opportunity to learn a new application for Botox®—a treatment that ophthalmologists have been using for more than 20 years for other disorders of and near the eyes.
Whatever treatment and surgery she does, Dr. Manjoney makes sure that her patients understand what they can expect after the procedure because nothing in medicine is going to be perfect. “It’s a compromise,” she says. “It’s not going to be like when they were 16, but it’s going to be better than their current situation.” She is also forthright with her staff. “I stress to my staff to treat patients the way that they would want to be treated,” she says. “It doesn’t matter if a doctor’s skills are great. If a patient isn’t treated well, he or she won’t come back. This is really a team effort.”
