I’ve only been seeing him through tele-health, but thus far he is caring and shows concern. His office staff WERE horrible, but thankfully he fired them and things are 100% better.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kumar's for over a decade. While I trust him and have had good service for the most part, the last year or so the office staff has been sub par to say the least. Calls go unanswered, messages are never returned, prescriptions aren't called in like they say they are. After this long of a time I will be looking for a new psychiatrist.

He is one of the worst psychiatrists i have ever gone to. I can't even believe he is in this field. it's truly embarrassing to say the least. he doesn't even make eye contact. he just is busy on his computer the entire visit. And he is extremely rude. asking stupid questions...he is in this business only for the money. very sad way to be.

A doctor that cares more about the notes he is putting in his computer, than about the actual patient, is not a doctor. Repeated calls to his office go unanswered. As his patient suffering with Anxiety, I do not recommend this unprofessional doctor as you will no doubt have added stress dealing with him and his staff.

I had called the office trying to help my friend after your Nurse Practitioner Amalia disappeared on her patients at her prior office. I figure it's worth mentioning that Mrs. Per's incompetence almost cost my best friend her life.

His receptionist is rude and disrespectful . She yells and screams at the patients . Not a good ienvironment to be near. He needs to replace his staff with someone who is personable and respectful to the patients . The receptionist is very volgar and cursing too. She will ruin his practice .
