Crea T. Crea T. Bethel Park, PA 0 friends 2 reviews 5.0 star rating11/21/2016 First to Review Dr. Uma purighalla is a wonderful choice ! I went to her recently to be cleared for eye surgery and she gave me a check up. I don't like having to visit doctors. Had some bad experiences. She made it a comfortable experience. She is a doctor who is about more than writing a prescription. She is about helping you understand your body and emotions and how the two are both important to make the whole w

I have been going to Dr. Uma for over 10 years. For me, she is a great fit. I appreciate the lifestyle suggestions she makes in addition to her medical recommendations. I have made changes to my diet and started mindfulness meditation and - for me - this has been very beneficial. She spends a good amount of time with me and takes all of my questions and concerns seriously.
in Bridgeville, PA |
each time I've been there, I waited about 1.5 hours to be seen. Staff reeks of cigarette smoke and talks about patients within ear shot of other patients. Dr Uma doesn't put her belief in healing aside to benefit what's best for the patient. I was sick for 20 days before she would call me in an antibiotic. Basically, it's a total waste of time to go see her as she never does anything about the reason you're there. Oh, and Kleenex in the waiting room of a Drs office would be a good idea.
