Patient Reviews
Aug 29, 2023
He saw me on one of my worse days the first time, as my MD had referred me after regular visits and labs, he felt I needed to see a Rheumatologist (as I was followed over a year before the referral). Dr. Udayakumar was able to see many different symptoms and had good knowledge to know where to begin in treatment, as there were many things going on. He ordered more intensive labs, and after results began starting medications. Within a few days I could actually see a little relief, and I tolerated the medication well. After seeing me for several months, he was able to see that my symptoms and history led him to my current diagnosis, but he still believes there is more. He has located medications, and treatment, that have now given me a better quality of life than I had been able to have in two or three decades at least. As nobody really looked into my complaints before, I just kept getting worse. Dr Udayakumar and his staff, and given me back my life.
