Dr. Kumar suggested an eye injection. i was told there was financial help available and when I called the office to find out if I qualified the surgery scheduler told me she would tell me when i came in for the procedure and refused to look it up. When I came in for an appointment, Dr. Kumar would ask me if I am still using the eye drops. I would have to tell him he took me off them a year ago. Surgery scheduler doesn't return calls and when I mentioned this to dr. Kumar, there was attitude from him. I changed doctors.

Excellent. Had cataracts removed by Dr. Kumar following treatment for a minor eye problem approximately 18 years ago. His expertise and dedication to his profession are evident and clearly exhibit a feeling to his patients of being well taken care of.

Had me coming every month for 4 months instead of doing my cataract surgery and then gave me a script 4 eyeglasses that was incorrect & eyeglasses store said I would need another script after my cataract surgery so I felt like his patients are padded revenues and like he was cleverly robbing the elderly which from what I see are most of his patients.. I would never send unsuspecting people to him

Great doctor, and fantastic staff. I have been a patient for over two years, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. He's been excellent at regular eye issues as well as surgery. His staff is really friendly and helpful.
