Dr Kumar is AMAZING. He is kind and patient, great with my son, and available for me to ask questions. He is direct, honest, offers options for less invasive treatment where reasonable, and always calls to check in after a sick visit to make sure things are heading in the right direction. I couldn't ask for a better pediatrician for my son, and for me. We were patients of his when he was in Marlborough, CT, and will be following him to his new office in Ellington - he is just THAT GOOD!!!

East Hampton – Dec 15, 2017
We highly recommend Dr. Kumar to anyone looking for a caring, concerned pediatrician who is willing to go the extra mile for families. He has been our older daughters pediatrician for 5 years and has been extremely strength focused, patient, understanding, and willing to listen. Dr Kumar takes time to get to know your family. He has been extremely supportive of our family and we could not be happier, or more assured, that our daughters are receiving the best medical care available.

Dr. Kumar is the best pediatrician we've ever had. He is so patient and listens not just to the parents but to the child also. Gives great perspective of different opinions. He also makes the parents feel good about trusting their own feelings/thoughts which is invaluable.

Dr. Kumar is an amazing pediatrician who goes above and beyond with all of his treatments. He is wonderful with kids but he also is not condescending and helps first time parents through every cough cold or any issue. He listens and cares almost like these kids were his own
