What People Say About Dr. Nanda Kumar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Was not overly impressed. He seemed to treat my condition more as a joke then trying to comfort me. Was refered for a test for 3/14/19, never got a call back. On 3/25/19 I called the office to inquired as to why I did not hear from them. Was told "they ONLY call back if the results are NOT normal."I was concerned for 11 days, but the office staff did not seem to think that was a big deal. They only kept repeating that I was informed of their "call back" policy. Would not recommend.

I really felt like Dr. Kumar cared about me and helped to find out what was going on in my body. He knew what test to do and made some suggestions that I wouldn't have thought I needed but I did. On one of the tests he did, I was worried about the pain I would suffer during the test. I could see in his eyes that he was very sympathetic to what I was afraid of. He was very reassuring, compassionate, and kind. His staff was friendly and answered any questions I had.

Dr. Kumar's office engages in a policy of requiring a bill not yet due to be paid early, in full before honoring an appointment they previously set with you. You will not know about this until only 24 hours before your appointment when an office assistant calls to remind you of your appointment. Hoping this review provides the public who are reading here with this disclosure of important information that the doctor himself should be disclosing instead when he originally schedules appointments.

Staff is rude and horrible. Treat you like you are nothing. Office has poor communication skills with patients and will try to screw you over and hang up on you. He himself is very stern when he speaks and difficult to understand and can be rough with exams. Overall did not have a comfortable experience with appointments and found it impossible to set up appointments with staff because of their rudeness and defensiveness

Dr. Kumar is an exceptional physician who is extremely thorough with his patients. He is a very compassionate individual, whom I would highly recommend! He is kind, attentive, relational, and will answer any question(s) that may arrise. He is patient and takes his time, I never felt as though he was in a, "rush." I am very content with my office visits and grateful for his dedication and commitment to his patients. No need to make an appointment elsewhere. You will not be disappointed!

One star is too many. I went to Dr. Kumar for headaches and he didn't listen to anything I said and ignored the medical tests I brought him. He gave me some migraine pills for my headaches claiming they seemed similar to tension headaches (without explaining how or when to take them) and told me I was depressed. The next week my primary doctor diagnosed me with a brain tumor and was shocked an MRI was not ordered by Dr. Kumar. Don't go, even if it's the only place that will take you. ZERO stars

I would give zero stars if the option was available. He kept me on a medicine for years despite my repeatedly voicing concerns over the side effects. After I moved and visited a new doctor, guess what -- I was having reactions to the medication all along. Dr. Kumar ignored my concerns and created years of unnecessary side effects for me. His license should be revoked, he is more of a danger to his patients than their own health problems.
