Dr. Udani is the best. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't be walking and recovering. I appreciate him very much and would recommend all who need the type of surgeries he does. He gave me my life back and I'm recovering well. Thank you so much Dr. Udani

I had neck surgery last year by another surgeon that totally messed me up. I was in constant pain running down both of my arms. I saw Dr. Udani as my last hope after nothing was helping. He took me in for another surgery after clearly explaining that it may not work. Not only did it work, but I feel better than ever. I finally feel like I've recovered from this problem and am eternally grateful to Dr. Udani.

Fantastic experience. Had a minimally invasive surgery (MVD) for facial pain that had been bothering me for years . Surgery was a breeze and I went home the next day. Haven’t had any pain since!

Dr. Udani removed a tumor from the back of my brain and kept me informed throughout the whole process. I am feeling much better and recovery has been quick. He's extremely polite, caring, and professional as is the staff at Senta Clinic.

Dr. Udani was compassionate explaining the surgery required to give me the best chance of recovery after a traumatic incident. His care and concern was reassuring to my family and I. Dr. Udani answered all of our questions and ensure we understood the surgery before we proceeded. After the surgery, he and his staff (at Senta Clinic) were polite, professional and prompt. I am grateful Dr. Udani was on my team.

Dr Udani and his staff are a team I was blessed to have as my team while I had a brain infection and needed a bifrontal craniotomy. He did a spectacular job with minimal scarring which will heal beautifully. He/they showed that he cared for me with my recovery. He is a very professional, personable and caring doctor who I am very glad to have been mine. He truly loves what he does and takes pride in his work. Thank you Dr. Udani and staff :)

Dr. Udani is a highly qualified brain surgeon who performed emergency on me to remove a large tumor on the right side of my brain near my eye (on a Sunday). He was excellent at describing what had to be done and why. At my three-month followup appointment, he showed enlarged photos (before and after) of my brain from the MRIs and answered all my questions. I am so happy he was available when I needed him and I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Udani is excellent! I had a spinal cord stimulator implanted in my spine and I am very pleased with the results. The pain reduction as a result of the stimulator allows me to be free of addicting opioid pain medications and has given me the freedom to lead a more normal life. Dr. Udani took the time to review all my options and explained everything very clearly to me. He is very friendly and understanding. Great staff also.

I could not be happier with the results of my surgery. The office staff is welcoming and very friendly. Dr. Udani's evaluation of your condition and explnation of options for treatment is very easy to understand. The thoroughness of his attention to you is very genuine. The minute I awoke from surgery my previous pain was totally gone and it is great to be back working out at the gym.

Dr. Udani was always extremely caring during all phases of my treatment and recovery. His level of skill is remarkable and I found him to be an outstanding surgeon and caregiver. Additionally, the level of care and concern by Dr. Udani's staff was also outstanding. The staff and assistants were compassionate, helpful, and efficient. I’ve never experienced a physician and surgeon such as Dr. Udani that holds the care of patients, and their ultimate success for recovery, in such high regard.

Dr. Udani was terrific! The entire experience with him and his staff was outstanding. I really appreciated the time he took to answer all of our questions & fully explain all of the options for treatment. He understood our desire to be conservative in treatment to make sure that surgery was the best option and long term solution and he helped us thru the entire process. My surgery & recovery went unbelievably well. I'm very grateful to the skill, care, & service provided.
