Dr Kumar helped my back pain without the need for surgery. He took the time to explain everything to me in detail. He gave me a new lease on life when I truly couldn't go on anymore. I completely trust him and recommend him.

Dr. Kumar helped me tremendously. Straight forward, listens and got the job done. I would recommend him to anyone. Do what he tells you, you are in good hands. Once you are a patient of his it's easy to get in.
