Dr. Uma K Pisharody has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Unhelpful staff

This office claimed that insurance would cover my visit. Then they failed to file the forms, even after 4 months of me calling them. I got stuck with a $780 bill.

Quick and accurate Celiac diagnosis

After 6 weeks of vomiting, severe stomach pain, and several clueless Dr's and ER visits, Dr Pisharody quickly diagnosed my daughter as having Celiac disease. That was a year ago, and we are so thankful to know what it is and what to do about it.

Wonderful doctor

I brought my 2 year old here yesterday for some GI problems she has been having since she was an infant. The things that surprised me (in a good way) were that it was quick to get an appointment, we were seen on time for our appointment by the nurse then only waited 5 minutes for the doctor. The doctor was very nice and caring and thoroughly explained what was going on even though my daughter's condition was common. She spent probably a half hour or more just talking to us. My daughter needed some labs done so they have a pediatric phlebotomist in their office that I only had to wait a few minutes to see. Can't ask for much more than that! Highly recommend.

Five Stars

I can't think of anything negative about Dr. Pisharody. She is everything you would want in a Pediatric Dr. She really listens to the child. She is patient and kind and will go to great lengths to get to the bottom of whatever ails your child.
