I received excellent care from Dr. Kummer. She did a trigger finger release on my index finger and I immediately felt relief after my surgery. I have recommended Dr. Kummer to my friends and family and they would all agree that she provides great care.

Dr. Kummer stepped up in a big way to help my husband. He had broken his wrist in a fall, had another surgeon put a plate in and was told the reason it hurt was that now he had arthritis. Dr. Kummer ordered several tests that confirmed that he was suffering from a bone infection. She performed surgery to remove the infection and damaged (deteriorated) bones. Then she contacted an infectious disease specialist who put my husband on a picc line for 6 weeks. He is doing great now!

Dr. Kummer did an amazing job removing a lipoma in my forearm. My scar is very small and healed nicely! I have recommended and will continue to recommend Dr. Kummer to my family and friends for their hand, wrist, and forearm issues.

I received excellent care from Dr. Kummer and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking excellent care and emphatic treatment. I was seen within 1 day of my injury and surgery within a matter of days. She even went out of her way to do my surgery at a location she usually does not use, because of my medical limitations. My recovery has been outstanding and she has shared my enthusiasm for my quick recovery.

Erroneous billing - Received an $8,000 bill from her surgical assistant (3X the surgeon bill) after previously being given a quote from her of zero dollars. This was for a small outpatient procedure. Called many times, left voice mails - no response at all.

I have been seeing Dr. Kummer for the last 4 years for hand injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis issues. She provides a comprehensive exam of the symptoms and explains options for treatment. I have had excellent results with treatments and surgery.

Dr. Kummer is my superhero! She gave me an opportunity to regain the use of a badly curved finger from a condition called Dupuytren's. My scarring was minimal and I can do things that I hadn't been able to for a long time. I recommend Dr.Kummer and her staff to anyone considering her for their concerns. I fully understood everything about my procedure from the surgery through the last physical therapy and my followup appointments. She gave me my fingers back... she's Awesome!

Dr. Kummer recommended and performed surgery on my wrist due to a ruptured scapho-lunate ligament and resulting arthritis. I did not get the outcome I expected. The wrist is now more painful than before surgery, and my range of motion is limited. Very disappointing; I would not recommend this surgery.
