In 2001, Dr. Mani was diagnosed with breast cancer, which changed her life dramatically. She moved to San Diego to be closer to family, and she received aggressive treatments which thankfully were successful. The side effects of chemotherapy and hormone withdrawal opened her eyes to aesthetic issues facing all of us as we age. Her life experience and personal commitment to caring for patients helped form her personal philosophy of empathetic care with excellent results.
“Shortly after my breast cancer I started menopause. I found myself very tired and my face started showing signs of aging. I was determined to improve my skin and appearance. This was a true turning point for me, after which I started a journey of self-improvement. I conducted research on different methods that would safely improve my skin and overall appearance. Through many trials and testing, I was able to personally evaluate and determine the best treatments. These treatments I incorporate into my practice today. From personal experience, I know that I am not only delivering optimal skin results, but a boost of self-confidence as well. I believe in my methods because I try everything on myself before I offer these methods to my patients.”

I graduated from Grossmont Health Occupations in 2012. I immediately started working for Dr.Mani at San Diego Cosmetic Laser after I graduated. I have really enjoyed working here the last year and a half and really appreciate everything that I have learned in Dr. Mani’s office. I am happy to say I have a pretty close bond with my co-workers and also with Dr. Mani.
I started working with Dr. Mani in 2011 for about a year and six month after my husband and I moved out of the state to live in Germany for almost two years. I grew up in Germany and finished all my schooling in Duisburg. I’ve also worked for a couple of doctor’s offices there. Luckily, I got another position with Dr. Mani after I moved back to California in 2014. I love being in the medical field and enjoy working in Dr. Mani’s office.
I started working for Dr. Mani shortly after receiving my Medical Assistant Certificate. I have learned so much in the little time I have been here. Dr. Mani is very informative and likes to have all of her staff become knowledgeable of every procedure in the office. I am currently going to school to achieve my BSN, and believe where I am at is a good start.
I’m from San Diego. I graduated from Grossmont Health Occupations Center at the age of 18 with a Certified Nursing Assistant license and since then I’ve worked in the medical field for the past 7 years. I’ve been working for Dr.Parvin Mani for six months now and it’s been a pleasure working with her and the wonderful team.
