Robert “Bobby” K. Mannel, MD was born and raised in Texas. He completed his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University and is an avid football fan. He graduated at the top of his class from the University of Sint Eustatius School of Medicine. Dr. Mannel then completed his medical preliminary year and neurology residency at the University of Florida in Jacksonville. In his final year, he served as Chief Resident of neurology. That year he was awarded with the Edward Jelks Outstanding Clinician Award, which is given annually to the resident who is considered to have contributed the most to the improvement of patient care across all residencies at UF Health Jacksonville. Dr. Mannel then went on to complete a vascular neurology fellowship in 2017 at UF Health Jacksonville and became double board-certified.
Throughout his medical career, Dr. Mannel has participated in several committees (stroke, pharmacy & therapeutics, critical care, patient safety, & pain management), research projects (dementia, stroke, multiple sclerosis), & publications (journals and national conference posters). He also served as a neuro-anatomy guest lecturer for physical therapy doctoral candidates. While Dr. Mannel enjoys seeing any and all neurological patients, he has a special interest in dementia, stroke, headache/migraines, seizures, and neuro-imaging. He believes the physician-patient bond is of the utmost importance and this relationship leads to trust, joint discussion involving up-to-date treatment options, and ultimately better patient outcomes. Dr. Mannel enjoys outdoor activities, building computers, woodworking, and most of all spending time with his family and friends.
