Holding academic affiliations to world-class medical centers, Dr. Mango dedicates his time teaching the next generation of eye doctors. Namely, he is a Clinical Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medical College and is actively involved as a teaching professor in the vitreoretinal fellowship training program/associate attending at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Viewing his most rewarding experience as a physician to be mentoring, his field is unique in the amount of skills transferred one-to-one while sitting at a microscope. “Fellowship training is the best because we focus on the high-level details that interest us the most. Fellows continue to play a big role in my life long after their official training is complete. Several of the people I trained in fellowship still call me for advice when they are practicing on their own. They email me difficult cases and ask for guidance. They make it a point to meet in-person at our many meetings. They become colleagues with whom I continue to share ideas, but, more important, they become my friends” expressed Dr. Mango.

At the start of his academic career, he graduated with his medical degree from SUNY Upstate Medical University in 2000. He then went on to perform a residency in ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medical College – New York-Presbyterian Hospital in 2004, followed by a two-year fellowship in vitreo-retinal disease and surgery at Jules Stein Eye Institute in 2006.

“My father is a practising retina surgeon, and he instilled in me an interest in eyes and surgery. I used to go to the OR to observe his cases. I remember thinking this was really a cool thing to do and something I would like to do when I grew up. In medical school, I forced my mind to be open to all disciplines. However, I kept coming back to the field of ophthalmology. I believed it was the perfect balance of office-based practice and surgery; I still believe that. I was eventually guided into the field of retina because of the challenging cases and the variety of patients that we take care of. My fellowship in vitreoretinal surgery at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA was the single best experience in my medical training, and it cemented in me a lifelong love for the field” as stated by Dr. Mango.

With a commitment to superior care, he is board-certified in ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmology, an independent, nonprofit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists (eye physicians and surgeons) in the United States. 

Affiliated with multiple educational societies that are focused on treatment of eye disorders and retina diseases, Dr. Mango remains an active member of the American Society of Retina Specialists, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and the New York State Ophthalmological Society. He co-founded and currently serves on the Board of Trustees and as an Officer for the Vit-Buckle Society.

Cultivating clinical excellence, he has published in major scientific journals, has authored multiple textbook chapters, and is actively involved in scientific research projects. His prior research interests include robotic ocular surgery and evaluation of electronic advances in the field of retina. 

Contributing as a reviewer to major scientific journals, Dr. Mango continues to serve on the editorial board for the official journal of the American Society of Retina Specialists. He has been a lecturer at national and international meetings, and has participated as a principal investigator and co-investigator in multiple clinical trials. 

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.

On a more personal note, Dr Mango has been an avid bird-watcher for years. He lives near Central Park in New York City, which is a surprisingly great place for bird watching. Hiking and camping are high on his list of things to do as well. Most importantly, he loves spending time with his wife, Cheryl, and their two children.
