I agree with all the other 1 star reviews asserting that Dr. Kumar is arrogant, condescending, and above all not compassionate or empathic about patients that suffer.

Review for Dr. Pradeep Kumar, MD

Only seen Anaya-Cisneros 3 times. He really listens and helps me understand our treatment plan. I say our treatment plan because he and I actually talk frankly about my treatment options

I had Dr. Anaya when I had a massive heart attack. He saved my life along with others. He is a very good cardiologist and really wished he would have stayed in Hays Kansas! A very good person and cardiologist!!

Review for Dr. Mauricio Anaya-Cisneros, MD

Takes the time to listen carefully and asks good questions. His drug plan has reduced the frequency of afib episodes. He has more ideas if my frequency doesn't continue to improve. I appreciate the effort to help control my afib.

I had 2 hammer toes corrected with surgery and pins. I experienced no pain during nor afterwards. I may be different from others but I am already to have Dr Burkey do two more feet surgeries for me,

Review for Dr. Kayla Gray, DO

Dr. Snyder is a very conscious caring, and fairly knowledgeable person. The only fault I have with her is her lack of experience. Give her a few more years and I believe she'll deserve 5 stars.

Review for Dr. Mauricio Anaya-Cisneros, MD

This cardiologist is excellent. He took so much extra time to review my fathers case and explain things in a way my father could understand. Dr Anaya truly cares for his patients and is one of a kind.

Review for Dr. Mohammed Janif, MD

She only spends like 4 minutes with me for a 10 minute ofice wait, and 7 minute nurse exam and it doesnt help my anxiety. I feel rushed and kinda forced to hurry. I also dont like the judgemental looks or the i dont believe you tone of voice. The longest i was in their office was 20 minutes.

Everyone who has had a trip to one of these Dr.s knows how uncomfortable if not scary it is! But this guy he takes the weird out of it! Even my husband was comfortable taking to him while he was doing his thing. The surgery couldn’t have been more of a breeze either great Dr all together!

Review for Dr. Seema Patel, MD

I would highly recommend Dr. Manoj. He explained my sleep disorder in great detail. He answered my questions. He has a gentle voice, yet gets his point across. I was extremely comfortable with my appointment. He was crisp, and clean!

Debra Pepper in Luray, KS - Sep 10 2017

Review for Dr. Manoj Suryanarayanan, MD

Dr Patel is a very caring, nonjudgmental, and approachable physician. She is very thorough and someone you can trust to have your best interest at heart.

Dr. Patel is an excellent physician. She is caring, compassionate, kind, and empathic. I consider myself most fortunate to have her as my doctor while in Richmond. She is a credit to your institution.

Review for Dr. Seema Patel, MD

Wonderful visit. Very thorough and comprehensive. Great bedside manner. Most comprehensive visit I've had. Very knowledgeable, listens to the patient, and is collaborative. Great choice for a primary care provider!!!

Lynn in Bumpass, VA - Jun 01 2017

Review for Dr. Seema Patel, MD

Dr. Kumar was condescending, arrogant, and old school (aka, a pill pusher). Zero interest in determining the underlying pathology to explain/resolve symptoms. A total waste of my time and money. Please find a different doctor to see.

Review for Dr. Pradeep Kumar, MD

Dr Lee is awesome. He had to repair my knee replacement from another dr whom had done it wrong. Needless to say I am doing very well and living life to the fullest. He is caring and I can never thank him enough for giving me my life back. I strongly recommend him. Kathy Schwager

Kathy Schwager in Great Bend Kansas - Apr 18 2017

Review for Dr. Sukchan Lee, MD

My only complaint that really isn't Dr. Werth's fault is scheduling of appointments. Even being an established patient I still have to wait a month to get into to see him. If I go to the ER I may not get my first choice doctor at this clinic.

I saw Dr. Sharma for my lower back. He did surgery for me in 2014 and I have been pain free since. I am so thankful for him and all of his co-workers. He is very passionate about what he does, and he is also very caring. I would 100% recommend Dr. Sharma.

Very friendly, very knowledgeable, & very smart. Dr. Sharma has very good bedside manner and always explained things to us in a way that we could understand.

Totally unprofessional in all aspects. Is only interested in performing prostate biopsies for maximum income. Is extremely rough in performing biopsies. On one occasion, developed infection and total bladder blockage after biopsy procedure.

Review for Dr. Pradeep Kumar, MD

Being in pain for a long time and seeing no end in sight, meant that a second opinion was in order. My diagnosis and outcome were completely different under a different doctor.

Review for Dr. Gulraiz Cheema, MD

He does not listen to a patient and will not answer questions. He thinks he is above everyone else, and no one knows anything but him. He, and his staff, is very unprofessional and uncaring.

He was very good at explaining what was going on with my husband using a drawing. He and his staff got us an appointment in 3 days. We have been very happy with Dr. Kumar's professionalism and skill.

Dr. Wally got me back on the field when nobody else could and gave me a shot at being able to finish my season. I'm almost completely pain free and playing well! Hopefully I won't have to see him for a long time, but will know where to go when I do!

He fixes my left broken collar bone and was upfront with the options I had. Surgery went really smoothe and thankful for him and the assisting nurses and doctors.
