I have been suffering from what I thought was an illness for the past 3 years. My primary care doctor sent me to Dr. Kumar. He was very polite, knowledgeable about my condition, was able to explain in simple terms everything. I believe in doctors that care for the patient's well-being, not just on how they can make money off of their patients. I received excellent care from this doctor and I would not hesitate going back to him.

He is rude and doesn’t care about the questions you ask him. He is quick to dismiss you and your concerns. I would not recommend him as a doctor to anyone! If you like very arrogant doctors then maybe he is a good fit for you.

Staff is very rude. Appointment wait time is over an hour. Asks as if your time isn't as valuable as theirs. Seems to careless how long you must wait
