in Port Saint Lucie, FL |
Was misdiagnosed and spent almost 3 years on meds with very bad side effects. Office turned my last bill that had been paid over to collection agency after I produced proof that it had been paid the agency and Kumar ended all communications. Still waiting for my medical records that I had requested 3 months ago. Am now considering a malpractice suit. His Port St Lucie staff including his PA, Jennifer, which is where I went the last few visits is MUCH better.

Doctor was OK but because of rude, incompetent office staff I am going elsewhere.

Dr Kumar did a colonoscopy on me and perforated my bowels and it almost killed me. I was taken by ambulance unconscious and stayed almost that way for 8 days and 14 days total in hospital. And now I have had 3 surgeries because of this.

I really like this doctor. My 21 year old daughter had an endoscopy and colonoscopy done by him. He was extremely thorough and took the extra time to explain results and recommendations. Highly recommend. I do have to say the woman who works the front desk is very slow and not the friendliest of individuals but IMO the doctor made up what she lacked and then some.

Excellent doctor. Love him for all that he does for everyone. I am recommending him to all my friends.

Wonderful doctor. My husband and I both go to him and we are very satisfied. He is the most caring doctor I have ever dealt with. I had a very serious problem and he was able to put me and my husband at ease with his demeanor and he followed me regularly until the diagnosis was made. He took very good care of me.

Awesome doctor. Very responsive and always calls back. He and his staff are very caring people that are down to earth. He gives great advice and is highly respected for good reasons. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I really like Dr. Kumar as a professional, but the office staff can make or break your practice. I only came one time due to the incompetent front staff. The billing manager was arrogant and condescending to me. I was truly taken back by this. I can't give the office a great review due to this, but Dr. Kumar. is great!
in Stuart, FL |
This office is run extremely poor. I made my appt specifically with Dr. Kumar, they even confirmed my appt word for word to see Dr. Kumar and then they blindly had me see a Physicians Assistant. No one mentioned in making my appt, in confirming my appt, in taking my copay, in bringing me back into the room that I would not be seeing the doctor. He never came in to introduce himself to me and I never even saw him in the office. They made no attempt to even resolve this issue. Go somewhere else!
