This is the BEST medical office! Everyone in the office makes your visit pleasant and relaxed. You feel respected and appreciated while you're there, and very well informed when you leave. Most importantly (especially in a weight loss program) you actually feel proud of yourself.

Dr Umashanker is a breath of fresh air. She listens, is understanding, positive and supportive. She offered options based on my concerns. I felt "heard" and supported. She had set me on a path with a firm plan that will set me up for success.
