Dr. Masharani had a caring and thoughtful manner
Jul 28, 2020
It was challenging to understand Dr. Masharani. The connection was poor and I had to ask him to repeat thoughts and instructions fairly often to make sure I understood. This was definitely a problem with the app.

He wanted time to review my MRI fractures and consider which medication moving forward.

I am INCREDIBLY fortunate to have Dr. Masharani on my care team. He is caring brilliant and an amazing listener. Through my employer I can pay nothing for Kaiser or a couple hundred bucks for Anthem. Dr. Masharani (and the other UCSF specialists he's referred me to in years past) is the primary reason I choose an Anthem PPO.

Every single time he pushes a different insulin pump on me that I am not at all interested in using. Every single time I politely explain why I'm not interested. I don't like that I'm constantly pressured to use a product that wouldn't work for me especially when the one I have is working just fine.

Great doctor! He seemed like that funny old uncle that would pull a coin out of your ear and let you keep it. He listened to everything I had to say and showed interested in helping me as a person not just a patient.

Dr Masharani is one of the best doctors I've had the pleasure of dealing with for my health.

Dr. Masharani knew exactly what to do to manage the multiple significant problems that i brought to his office about my glucose sensor and insulin pump dietary/lipid concerns for recent heart problems and my medications! he was kind enough to squeeze me in for a friday appointment. one by one he really listened to my health concerns/problems and came up with excellent solutions. he worked right through lunch to see me. i am lucky to have him as my doctor. and i will continue to cross the golden gate bridge to see him to manage my diabetes! he is brilliant and compassionate.

I believe I gained more useful information in the time I spent with the attending doctor at this visit than i did in all the previous visits I have had with the medical resident/intern/student being the main provider of care. I know experience is acquired over time by patients as well as medical professionals but I felt previous visits were not very helpful.

I had not seen Dr. Masharani in 20 years and specifically requested to see him. He provides superb thoughtful expert care.

I have the highest confidence in Dr. Masharani. this opinion was formed from several years under his care. he does not waste time or do unnecessary tests and gets to the heart of the problem. I feel extremely fortunate to have him as my doctor.

Dr. Masharani is a thorough and very caring provider.
Aug 17, 2019
This care provider (Dr. Masharani) made me feel so cared for. He started by asking questions about my family's medical history and checking my symptoms. He explained my condition to me and the possible ways to manage it. I did not feel rushed or cast away and I would be happy to see Dr. Masharani again.
Aug 16, 2019
Dr. Masharani is one of the most helpful and likeable doctors I've ever seen. He's informative listens carefully explains things well and makes what might otherwise be a stressful visit much more pleasant while still providing necessary info. More doctors should take a page out of his book.
Aug 11, 2019

I felt listened to and cared about despite having a very unserious situation. Other doctors have made me feel written off but not Umesh. He was thorough kind and knowledgeable.

The doctor was unhelpful and condescending. Since he quickly realized I didn't have an insulinoma I was obviously not interesting enough of a case for him even though he is an endocrinologist and at least 8 of my hormones are out of the normal range and have yet to be fully explained. He provided generic advice of "diet and exercise" to address my blood sugar dropping to levels so low that lab corp has to retest them and did so in the most patronizing tone. The only thing the appointment resolved was that I didn't have an insulinoma and gave me no next steps for how to handle my very out of whack endocrine system except for just dealing with it. Well that doesn't seem like a solution to me.
May 16, 2019
Felt rushed and still feeling pressured to switch to a device that I have expressed multiple times that I am NOT interested in.
May 09, 2019

Dr Masharani is obviously super knowledgeable about diabetes care options and also a really friendly guy.
Feb 18, 2019
Dr. Masharani is one of the most caring providers that I have known. He takes the time to listen to any concerns so quick to respond on MyChart to any questions and remembers minor details about each. He is so knowledgeable and I am thankful everyday for such an amazing provider.
Feb 17, 2019
Dr. Masharani is very caring and compassionate. Glad I was referred to him.
Feb 07, 2019
Dr Masharani has shown great concern for what I am going through (insulinoma regrowth). His staying late and making sure I got my labs done was so appreciated. Not all doctors I have seen would have done so much.
Feb 04, 2019
His resident was there too and she made several insensitive comments that were not appreciated. Both the doctor and the resident kept cutting me off and not listening to me. They were also pushing certain things that I had no interest in.
Jan 15, 2019
Saw Dr. [name redacted] firest: He was very good at listening to my story taking notes and then discussing my issue with Dr. Masharani. Then Dr. Masharani came in and spoke with me and my husband taking notes and making suggestions. Very happy with their interest in me.

Dr. Masharani was the first provider at UCSF with whom I felt deeply cares about my worries during pregnancy. He gave me the sense that I am been taken care of and do not need to worry. He showed deep concern and helped me get over my worries for myself and my baby. He is one of the best providers I have seen. He explains every thing and answers all questions. He spent much time going through my history and was so detail oriented. I am so happy I met him.

I have several care providers at UCSF and Dr Umesh Masharani is on of the best. Thoughtful easy going bright experienced and very complete and caring. I very much appreciate how he thinks out what is going to happen and why he doing something.
