    Dr Kumar was my last resort, surely there was a doctor out there who was up to the challenge of an inoperable back condition, he was sent directly from heaven, he is making it possible for me to do the things I enjoy doing and making it a little better to do the things I do not enjoy doing, but are necessary in life, and my treatment is on going, I expect to get better and better as time goes by instead of worse, without him, thank you Dr Kumar, with all my heart, Susan Willett

    I have been a patient of Dr. Kumar for many years and I must say that I'm happy to be seen by him. I have been everywhere MGH and other pain centers no one could take away my pain. After having 2 injections my quality of life has changed and I'm able to enjoy my life back. Thank u all for great service, now i can do things i never done before.

    Dr. Kumar has been my doctor for 23 years and he is the only Doctor that I would ever trust to help me deal with the pain that I have from an overhead door spring totally mutilating my right hand and leaving me at the time thinking that I would never be able to use it again.whith the help of Dr. Kumar and his excellent and knowledgeable staff I am able to lead a " normal" life at work and at home. Thank you Dr. Kumar and staff. Mike D.

    STAY AWAY! Rudest medical front office staff I have ever experienced. I was referred by my Dr. because this Dr. is in his network. They double bill you if you need an office visit and something simple like trigger point injections. Also If you do not go every month and only need a visit every 6-12 months they will drop you. Also when I wanted to go back they claimed I owed $250...never got one bill and paid every visit copay on a CC. I have proof but no one calls you back! Scammers!
    Our staff is trained for professionalism and courtesy. We do not "double bill". We have an office facility and a separate surgical center. Each must be billed independently. We do not "drop" patients. Since there are no specifics in this review, call our office and speak with Dr. Kumar to have your concerns answered.
