My 4 kids have seen Dr. Kuma for the past 15 years. I've never had a bad experience with him and he has always been fantastic with all of my kids. As long as I remain in this area, he will be my childrens pediatrician. None of my kids have ever been scared of him or had a complaint about him.

Dr Kuma is the absolute best doctor we have ever had. My daughter is 5 and my son is almost 13. Dr Kuma returns calls nights and weekends. He always makes the kids smile and laugh. He is so helpful and resourceful about showing you things and teaching you things. He doesnt judge the kids by a growth chart. He is the best doctor anyone can ever ask for. We stand by you Dr Kuma. Love the Bravo Family.

MY GRANDSON HAD HIS 15MONTH CHECK UP ALONG WITH THE SHOTS. OFCOURSE HE CRIED A LITTLE BIT. AS WE WERE WALKING OUT THE DOOR DR. KUMA HANDED MY GRANDSON A STICKER, HE TOOK THE STICKER AND WHEN WE ASKED HIM ABOUT IT THE BIGGEST SMILE APPEARED ON HIS FACE. IT WAS LIKE HE WAS SO PROUD TO HAVE GOTTEN IT. I TRUST AND RESPECT DR. KUMA AND HIS STAFF AS I FEEL THEY DO MY GRANDSON AND MYSELF.

I've known Dr. Kuma for over 20 years. His receptionist it the rudest front desk person I have ever met. Dr. Kuma backs her attitude up 100%, and can be as rude as her. He will not hesitate to tell you to find another doctor. He overlooked issues with my children and grandchild on more than one occasion. They think they know everything, and they do not listen.
Terrible bedside manner. Very disrespectful towards mothers but not fathers. Doesn't want to listen to your concerns even after it is proven you were right. Does not like to give referrals that are needed.

Rudest and least helpful staff I've ever experienced. If you ask the wrong question or make Dr. Kuma feel you question him, he has a temper tantrum and tells you to change doctors. Acts the same if your insurance company wants him to fill out a form or authorize something he prescribes. If he thinks he is being inconvenienced, he refuses to do it with no regards to the needs of his patient.
