Dr. Derrick Umansky has given me a quality of life that I haven't experienced in years. Dr. Umansky quickly can diagnose the problems that I was experiencing. Dr. Umansky is professional and compassionate. Dr. Umansky listens to me and explains my issues along with solutions. I've had 2 back procedures which were extremely sucessful. Dr. Umansky is highly skilled as a surgeon. I won't be looking for another neurosurgeon because I have found the best!! Thank you Dr. Umansky!
