I worked with Dr. Kumar in 2010-2011. Thanks to him I have my amazing baby girl (now age 5). He was so supportive and professional. In utero fertilization was not working so I I had to do in vitro. Pregnancy problems are so devastating, but with Dr. Kumar's expertise and help I was lucky enough to have a healthy baby girl. I highly recommend Dr. Kumar to anyone struggling with infertility.

Dr. Kumar is one of the most courteous and knowledgeable doctors I've had. His demeanor has always been calming to me. He's always patiently and thoroughly explained answers to questions, from mundane to technical. We're now successfully pregnant with our second child through IVF process done at Dr. Kumar's.
