I was under Dr. Prabhu Udayakumar's care for a couple years in Minnesota. He relocated to TX and shortly after I relocated to AZ, where I am still battling to find a knowledgable RA to handle the complexity of my care. As I am now undertaking the misery of attempting to locate compedent Specialist in a new state, it had me appreciating just how amazing his care was and appreciative I am, so I for the first time felt compelled to right a rewiew. I had seen RA's prior to Dr. Udayakumar who never took the time to reach a proper diagnosis. After my first visit, I teared up knowing I had finally struck gold with Dr. Udayakumar. He is vastly knowledgable, doesn't give up searching for the facts rather that slap labels of misdiagnosis on you. He looks at your whole health picture! I'll refrain from turning this into a novel, but just know if you are considering him, go see him!!! He is just a GREAT RA!!!

Dr. Udayakumar has been my rheumatologist since I contracted the tropical disease chickungunya from a mosquito bite in Tahiti in 2014. The disease triggered rheumatoid arthritis which we have been treating with several medications since then. He is a very attentive doctor who listens to my concerns and acts on them. I feel very fortunate to have found such a caring physician in Dr. Udayakumar. I highly recommend him.

Excellent provider with pleasant personality, great bedside manner, and extremely knowledgeable!! I started seeing Dr. U 3 yrs ago for aggressive progression of erosive osteoarthritis in my hands, knee and back. We figured out the right combination of meds, supplements, and therapies to strongly slow down the progression of the osteoarthritis, reduce the pain and swelling in my hands so computer work and daily chores are easier to do. I highly recommend Dr. U to old and young!

I have been seeing Dr. Udayakumar for over three years - first at the U of M and now at the clinic in Eagan. My situation is quite complicated and he has been excellent about communicating with my other physicians. He has worked diligently to find the right combination of meds for me. I feel he is very skilled in his field and I would highly recommend him.

I found Dr. Udayakumar very helpful with my prognosis. He clarified his findings with me and answered any questions I had regarding my condition. It is very helpful to have the email chat on "My Chart" to help with any non threatening issues or concerns I have.
