Dr. Kumar has treated both my wife and me for more than 20 years. We are convinced that we cannot find a better cardiologist anywhere. Consequently, since we moved to northeast Wisconsin 15 years ago, we drive about 3 hours each way to see him. HE ALWAYS PROVIDES THE BEST CORONARY CARE AND ARRANGES THE BEST REFERRALS FOR CARE OUTSIDE OF HIS AREA OF EXPERTISE. We highly recommend him to family and friends and especially to those in need of coronary care.
