Guilford, CT |
I have recommended Dr. Umashanker to many friends as my experience with her and her staff was excellent as was the experience of several friends, some of whom had problems that were quite serious (unlike mine which consisted of need for colonoscopy and having some questions answered). I am a nurse with an advanced degree (if that makes me a better judge) and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Gastroenterologist.
