Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Umansky and team have been patient, attentive, and very knowledgeable about helping my brother in his illness. In March 2021, my brother entered Tulane in a wheelchair barely walking. With a successful surgery, Dr. Umansky and team have cared for my brother and he is walking again with a limp and use of a walker. Our family is forever grateful for all who played their part in assisting and restoring my brother back to health.

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!
