Dr. Kumar is the best Dermatologist I have ever had. His diagnostics skills, knowledge and behavior are superior. He is very friendly, helpful and truthful with advice and never rushes you. I feel comfortable sharing anything with him, unlike some previous doctors. If I could give him more than five stars, I would.
Dr. kumar is extremely competent/professional and has a courteous staff. He spends time with you going over all your concerns and makes sure that all the concerns are addressed to the patient satisfaction. I I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Jagadeesh Kumar is an excellent doctor. he listens to your problems with care and provides the best service. He is also thorough in the subject matter. Office staff is pleasant. Never had issues with waiting on phone calls and the wait at the clinic was relatively small whenever I went there. Definitely recommend him.

Dr. Kumar is the Best! He really cares about his patients and always gone out of his way to help me even if it means squeezing me in the last minute. My whole family goes to him for any skin related problems. I definitely recommend Dr. Kumar for any skin treatment you might be looking to get.

I saw Dr. Kumar for abnormal itch on back of scalp and around belly button. This is how he responded after examining each area: "This is a normal skin, what else?" I looked @him by surprise. Then he responded that the itch was caused due to "STRESS, and TENSION"He said no need for biopsy. Later,confused,I looked into it closer and saw cut like irritation with fluid inside belly button.My 9Yr Old saw redness of scalp and took pic. NOT letting him do biopsy as surely he will do on a WRONG spot.

I have been having trouble with a large spot on my face...it was painful and scaley.......I called Dr Kumars office and they were kind and understanding. They got me in the same day. Dr Kumar wasn't in, but his associate took a biopsy of it. He was kind and friendly. I don't know what the biopsy. Showed, but I do know I was impressed by the professionalism and courtesy....I would use them again.
in Middletown, DE |
Didn't see the doctor. Saw his PA who was excellent. Staff was unfamiliar with insurance plan and began demanding I agree to pay for treatment out of pocket, but they figured it out.
