I saw Dr.Kuma for help with pain of Rheumatoid, spine pain and possible Fibromyalgia. Dr.Kuma gave me no options for all over pain, did not go over any explanation of what option i had or his plan. He just kept questioning old surgeries and my weight. He did a brief exam and then brought me up front told the office person to schedule me for a procedure with Anesthesia. He blamed all my health issues on weight told me to get gastric bypass and never told me a word of what his plan was.

AT FIRST, Dr. Kumar helped me tremendously with my severe back/knee pain. After 3 years of trusting Kumar to manage my chronic pain & succesfully treating my back pain with the right pain medication, I was finally pain free. My next appointment,Dr.Kumar randomly & wrongfully told me he won't refill my pain meds anymore because of the opioid epidemic. My drug tests were always negative, and he punishes me for the opioid crisis. Kumar had NO reason to mistreat a patient like this. I am devastated!

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

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!
