I did not like Dr. Kumar at all. He would not listen to any of the symptoms I was having. I left his office unsatisfied and extremely mad and looking for another Dr.
in Manhattan, KS |
Schedule very accommodating, knowledgeable friendly staff, little wait time.
in Junction City, KS |
Very smart doctor. He is busy, so he doesn't waste my time, because I am busy too. I don't need a doctor treating me for things I don't have either, he is straight forward. Treated my neuropathy and said I can come back when I need to see him. His nurses are so nice too!
in Kansas |
100% awful, rude and uncaring. He doesn’t know what he's doing, and don't bother asking questions, he either can't or won't answer.
Columbus, GA |
Dr. Kumar spends as little time as possible with his patients. He left to go to India for an entire month and his office refused to refill my medication while he was gone because I hadn't set up an appointment that month even though I had prior visits to legitimize my medical needs. I had to get another doctor involved in order to make sure I had medication to last the month he left out of the country. Horrible bedside manner and a rude staff of nurses and receptionists. He doesn't seem to care.

This neurologist is an accident waiting to happen, you want nothing to do with him. Becoming a patient of Dr. Kumar for a year was a bad fluke. I had G.M. seizures once or twice a year for 10 years that were related to past head injuries. The side effects of dilantin were too much for me, but he wouldn't switch me over to one of the other dozen or so medications available to control seizures. I finally called KU Med, got an appointment, they diagnosed me with epilepsy and I now take Keppra.
in Olsburg, KS |
He refuses to accept the contractual agreement he has with BCBS as an in network provider. This process is called balanced billing. It's generally done by out of network providers, which he is not. I have had the same treatment for alot of years with other neurologists all of which charge only what contract allows for. My second visit with him left me owing 800.00 out of my own pocket. Office staff was extremely rude and he refused to take my call or return it. I will never return to this Dr.

I have complains, he isvery Professional

When I first started off seeing Dr. Kumar in 1993, he diagnose me correctly with Epilepsy. Core Liow did brain surgery to solve my Epilepsy. It slowed them down tremendously but did not completely solve the problem. I was still having Aura spells and that would set me into a siezure. When I moved back to the Manhattan area, Dr. Kumar decided to put a Pulse Generator in me, also known as (VNS). They got it to it's highest setting and I have had no more Aura spells or siezures. Great Dr.& staff
Absolutely the worst doctor I've ever been to. This supposed neurologist missed an autonomic nervous system disorder, claimed it was just anxiety. He doesn't care about any of his patients, he's arrogant and thinks he's brilliant even though he is by far the least intelligent man I've ever met. If you have a choice DO NOT go to this doctor.
Very poor. Doesn't ask questions. Doesn't seem to care.
in Fort Riley, ks |
Unbelievable not in a good way. Dr Kumar talked about a misdiagnoses of his and laughed. I had 2 mris blood test and spinal tap fluid everything pointing to MS and he said I had no multiple sclerosis but wanted to start me on medication for multiple sclerosis. A month later I saw two other neurologist and both stated and documented 30 plus plaques on my brain. Does not take care of patients or their needs medically. Save yourself time and get a new referral for another Dr. Don't mess around.
Extremely unhappy with the total experience. Would never recommend to anyone. Five months of my life was wasted with this man.
