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.

She nailed my diagnosis on my first visit. But she was very pregnant so she had to turn me over to a colleague.

Dr Umashanker now works for Hartford Healthcare. Since last fall, she has provided superb care and weight management of my obesity condition. Through her careful and individualized care tailored to my unique medical complexities she has successfully enabled me to lose 20+ lbs and get my BMI under 30. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone carrying excessive weight who wants to improve their health and extend their lifespan!
