Dr. Senthilkumar changed my life when I started seeing him. He changed my medication for a seizure disorder and since then I have been seizure free. He alway takes as much time as needed during my appointments. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kandasami Senthilkumar has always been very knowledgeable,thorough, caring and personable. He has a sense of humor which helps lighten the atmosphere. He has always spent adequate time with me as a patient. He explains anything necessary. At this time, I would highly recommend Dr. Senthilkumar. The office staff is always friendly and have promptly tended to anything I may have called in for. The office is kept very clean.

My husband had an appointment this morning for an EEG. It was the first appointment of the day and when we arrived, the doors were locked and there were other patients waiting to get in. Once we got in, he checked in and then we waited because of his insurance cards. Finally he was called back and told that he would no longer be seen due to his insurance( which is Medicare and Medicaid) because he is disabled. Needless to say, we were shocked by the treatment and would not recommend this doctor.

My experience with this Dr has not been good at all. He is very impersonal and all he seems to care about is lining his pockets. He does not seem to care about his patients (me being one of them) I have suffered over 30 years with my TBI and today (due to an insurance up date) I got dropped as a patient they did not have the consideration to give me a call before I spent nearly 3 hours going to see him waiting to see him and the drive home. He does not listen and just sits there.

waited two weeks to hear from his office when referred there by another physician; finally called myself and made an appointment--for two months later--the earliest they could find. On day of appointment the office staff called and told me that he was no longer in my network of insurance--. I had rearranged my schedule to accommodate this appointment--although I have out of network benefits they did not seem to understand that I could be seen. Now I need to find someone else. Maybe in Houston.

My experience with Sentilkumar was less than adequate. I believed pride stepped in over caring for the patient. He would not refer out to another doctor although he did not know what was causing the ailment. After finally, getting to Houston, my husband was diagnosed with multiple spinal cord leaks and other issues which could have had serious repercussions if left untreated.
