This is probobaly one of one of the worst doctors I have come across in along time for many reasons. She has no manners, she does not care about her patients, her misdiagnoses, the fact that she has no clue what she is talking about and she has not right being in the medical field or anywhere near anything that breathes st thins point

Worst doctor I have ever visited. She charged me for two visits that totaled in 6 minutes of her time. She billed me a visit for her just to write me a letter. My first visit was for her evaluation of a MRI which she didn't even order. She just read the summary that I received too. She is the best example of a terrible doctor just out to leech money. Stay away from her.

Would not recommend this doctor to my worst enemy She enters room with a mug on her face & looks very miserable. I spent 15 min with her & she sent me off for Spinal Tap. I went back weeks later to review results. Dr Umamaheswaran was very rude & told me results came back negative for MS & Lime disease. Paperwork was 8 pages & she only look at the frist 2. That visit was 5min She told me, Im fine ,no need to return. After seeing another Neurosurgeon I was told I need surgery to remove a mass

Not a very pleasant doctor at all. 1st time seeing her and will not go back. She was raising her voice to my husband when we asked a simple question. She had no desire to help. Also front desk did not say at time appointment was made cash or check only...

worst doctor and worst office experience I have ever had. She refused to listen to me when I told her repeatedly I was having pains in my neck and back that I thought were causing neuropathy. She said I had a B12 deficiency which is a lie because I got my own blood work back from Quest Diagnostics and there was nothing wrong with my B12. She refused to order an MRI or any type of scanning or Imaging of my back later i had xrays and mri from another docter and found out i was right could have

This doctor completely misdiagnosed my brother's condition as arising from essential tremor and prescribed medications for this. Within 8 months his condition had deteriorated to the where he was shaking so bad he couldn't feed or dress himself. I found a different neurologist for him and in the first 5 minutes correctly diagnosed my brother as having Parkinson's disease and changed his medication accordingly. Within 3 months my brother was back to going to the gym. Zero stars.
