Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

At our 1st appointment with Dr. Kumar, he spoke with my 11 year old daughter as well as myself. She had a herniated disc and walked bent over, always in pain. Dr. Kumar performed a microdiscectomy on my daughter a few days after her 12th birthday. She was very comfortable with Dr. Kumar. He addressed all of our concerns. She is now 14 and has not had any pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Kumar to anyone suffering from a herniated disc.

He was honest and up front about the risk Vs reward but decided to give me a chance and I’m so thankful he tried for me! Two days post op I’m walking with zero pain, and like I haven’t in 7 years. I’m going to make sure to try to relax and heal properly as possible. Thank you for the effort Dr Kumar and your amazing team sir! Thank you thank you!

Dr. Kumar has improved my life tremendously, he is an incredibly intelligent and talented physician! I am a very active middle aged man, that had a discectomy 5 years ago by a different physician. THANKFULLY a friend recommended Dr. Kumar. The front staff was friendly and efficient, I was able to see him within 2 days. He is easy to communicate with, an attentive listener and explained everything in detail. My recovery was unbelievably easy this time, unlike my 1st surgery. I followed all of his instructions and was able to return to work 5 days later. I have already recommended him to family and friends. I can’t wait for my mom’s appointment. He is an AMAZING physician and I am now 100% PAIN FREE!!! He is truly a blessing from God.

My sister went in on April 8th 2019 for Spinal stenosis surgery, this is her third trip back to see Dr. Kumar and is now laying in hospital bed with an infection, in excruciating pain waiting for surgery for 5 days now. Horrible experience.

Dr Kumar is an excellent surgeon! He performed a minamally invasive spinal surgery on my 89 year old grandmother and her recovery was very quick and the results were amazing!!! She was in soooo much pain. It was hard to watch her suffer. God has given Dr Kumar a very special gift to help others! We are thankful and blessed!!!

Thank God Dr. Kumar was recommended to me. What an amazing human and he’s also an incredibly intelligent physician. I have already recommended Dr. Kumar to family and friends. Now that I am in Dr. Kumar’s capable hands, I know that I am going to get better. I’m grateful to be one of his patients. The receptionists are wonderful and friendly. There is just one person who can ruin all of this with a very unpleasant disposition. But I’m there for Dr. Kumar.

I met with Dr. Kumar in December of 2016 due to sever pain in my lower back. He identified the problem and fully explained what was going on and what he wanted to do. He then said he wanted to operate on my spine the following month. He was very fast, yet thorough about getting me in and explain all that was to be done. I was in and out within three days, and though my spin is not perfect (and never will be due to earlier trauma, I feel much better and my pain is reduced about 80%. Thank's Doc:)
