Sounds like he might have changed since I used him for my surgery.. He was very rude to me. Had no bedside manner.. His father was great, such as sweet and kind man...

I never take time to write these reviews, but since finding them so helpful in me selecting Dr Underwood, I decided to. Dr Underwood has kindness AND medical expertise, and, as if this wasn't enough, took an hour and a half out of his busy day, to educate me on both the anatomy of parathyroid glands, as well as what they can accomplish during surgery including the use of a high-tech test that gives immediate results showing when the surgery is successfully completed. I trust and admire him.

I would recommend Dr. Underwood and his staff with more stars if I could. Probably one of the friendliest and comforting offices and staff I've ever been to. From my first call to the needle biopsy each one treated me as if I was their most important patient. It is rare to find this quality of service anymore. Kudos to their excellence!!!!

I highly recommend Dr. Robert A. Underwood. Surgery can be scary. Dr. Underwood and his staff did an excellent job of explaining everything to me and treating me like one of the family. I felt I was in very capable and caring hands. Thanks again Dr. Underwood and staff for taking such excellent care of me.
