I've been living with the pain from RSD & fibromyalgia for 15+yrs & have seen 3 pain mgmt doctors before coming to Dr Kumar. I felt that I was out of options...then I learned about the spinal cord stimulator & tried it. Now I'm living a better quality life with alot less pain & medication thanks to Dr Kumar. I would highly recommend him if you're looking for positive change.

I came to Dr.Kumar after going to Staten Island pain mgt for many years. Dr. Kumar sat with me and listened as I expressed all my health issues and experiences with other physicians. Dr. Kumar actually cares about me and all his patients. He takes to time to listen, gets to know you and will do whatever he needs to do to make you as comfortable and pain free (or at least to control the pain). I am so pleased that he is't a "pill pusher" and only wants to keep you on ...

My story is long, but I can say that before I met Dr. Kumar my life was very difficult dealing with pain and a Spinal Cord Stimulator implant gone bad. Dr. Kumar removed the Spinal Cord Stimulator and a year later implanted a much successful Spinal Cord Stimulator. Today, I enjoy a much better quality of life and it is all thanks to him. Dr. Kumar knows his patients and care for each and everyone of us. I have had a great experience with Dr. Kumar and his staff and recomm...

I went to the Parsippany office for a few months, then was told it closed. I went to Hackettstown for another few months, then went into remission. I went back 6 months later with pain walking and was abruptly turned away and told I need to get another doctor. I went to another doctor who requested Dr kumar's notes and am still waiting for their response 11 days later. I was left to feel like I did something. I'm still confused about why I was treated this way.

Dr. Kumar and the outstanding office staff have gone above and beyond to help improve my quality of life. Dr. Kumar's goal was to better my quality of life. I can say without a doubt he has fulfilled his goal and still continues to do so. If it wasn't for this man and his team, I wouldn't be able to have a decent chance at life.

Dr Kumar and staff are excellent. Doc is very patient, listens to you. He is on top of his game as far as when you see him it is fresh in his mind where you are with your pain. I am very happy with the service provided and recommend him. I have two other friends who I recommended and they are also very happy.

I came to Dr. Kumar in Sept. 2018 barely able to walk crippled with knee pain in both knees. I was taking pain medications daily in order to function. Here I am 2 years later 98% pain free, I take only an anti-inflammitory and have gel injections to manage my chronic pain. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kumar, he listens to your concerns and allows you input on your care plan.

Dr. Kumar and his staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and take there time to listen and answer any questions I had. I first had the trial of the Spinal cord Stimulator without any complications. Just a terrific experience.
