Patient Comments (12)
in Woodville, TX |
Very disappointed that this doctor uses as his anesthesiologists the Capital Medical Management Group who are out of network with my insurance. That Company called and demanded an out-of-network fee of $400 before they would do the procedure even though I called my insurance and verified that my coverage has a benefit where it will pay for an out-of-network service such as pathology or anesthesia services at the "in network:" cost when the doctor is in network. The Anesthesia group refused.

Had 2 appointments with Dr. Doctor in his office, and two procedures, neck and lower back. Office visits were great --- straightforward, professional diagnosis, and suggested procedures. All went as described. It's been about one month since the last procedure and I feel great --- couldn't be happier. Dr. Doctor, his office staff, and the team assisting him in the hospital were professional, eager to make me feel comfortable, and at ease, and gave detailed instructions to follow afterwards.

Dr Doctor spent 18-20 years as a anesthesia doc and then moved to being a pain management physician. He's wonderful! He spends time thoroughly explaining the issue and what he will do to try to manage the pain level. I've seen him for 5 years. His communications skills are great. He treats everyone with the utmost respect as do his office staff.

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Doctor! He was very helpful and understanding. He gave me 6 epidural injections about 5 weeks ago. I know these don't help some people, but they have worked great for me. If I need to do them again, I'll go right back to Dr. Doctor!
in Pearland, TX |
He made time to explain the procedure. When the first injections caused my pain to feel worse. He gave me his cell number to call if I was still in pain and huried me in for more injections. His staff went far and beyond to help me. Great Doctor.

Had a cervical nerve root block performed from referral. Doctor met me briefly pre-op (<1 min). Did not see me to atleast to check in during post op. I had a lot of questions, so had to rely on the nurses. Nurses very friendly and caring. Doctor was hurried. Difficult to reach staff for scheduling - relies on phone calls, but I always get VM when I try to call back. Can't correspond via email effectively - terse response but never answer my questions! Insists on phone.

Mostly money driven. Had 6 injections on my neck not much relief. Won't give adequate pain relief otherwise.

Cold not caring

The procedure recommended had no impact except on my wallet. My insurance was checked and an estimate given. However the surgery center ( That Dr Uday is part owner of) turns out to be out of network.

This man is always late. He spent very little time with me, and doesn't listen well. Like many others I found him rude. The injections were not helpful, and he seemed to take this personally. If injections don't work, he has nothing else to offer. I would not recommend him.
in League City, TX |
I have been a patient for 10 years, being treated for degenerative disc disease with radiculopathy. My foraminal injection, have almost always given me pain relief and when they did not , a return appointment was made by his office to continue treatment. The entire staff, clinical and administrative is professional and very nice. He was recommended by two neurosurgeons who have busy and successful practices and I have personal knowledge and confidence.
in Houston |
Professional, personable, pleasant, leaving a lasting positive imoression - Has a very obvious deserving respect of his peers. My injection procedure was a positive one- feeling confident and optimistic of improvement. No pain or discomfort anytime throughout procedure.
