Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kumar "Family medicine is a three-dimensional specialty, incorporating (1) knowledge, (2) skill and (3) process. Although knowledge and skill may be shared with other specialties, the family medicine process is unique. At the center of this process is the patient-physician relationship with the patient viewed in the context of the family. It is the extent to which this relationship is valued, developed, nurtured and maintained that distinguishes family medicine from all other specialties.

In the dimension of process, the family physician functions as the patient's means of entry into the health care system and as the physician of first contact in most situations is in a unique position to form a bond with the patient. The family physician's care is both personal and comprehensive and not limited by age, sex, organ system or type of problem, be it biological, behavioral or social. This care is based on knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community, emphasizing disease prevention and health promotion. When referral is indicated, the family physician refers the patient to other specialists or caregivers but remains the coordinator of the patient's health care. This prevents fragmentation of that care in both the outpatient and inpatient settings. The family physician serves as the patient's advocate in dealing with other medical professionals, third party payers, employers and others and as such is a cost-effective coordinator of the patient's health services."

I never actually got an appt. When I called they told me that they only accept BCBS insurance if you are under 65. Just thought I'd let people know since there are so many other insurances listed on here as being accepted. If you are over 65 than I'm sure you're fine, but under you will need BCBS...more

Dr. Kumar's office booked my appt with just a day's notice. I was exceptionally thankful as I had a planned vacation in 48 hrs. and was experiencing much pain due to a sebaceous cyst on my back. In his usual accommodating manner, incredible kindness, professionalism, and five star bedside manner,...more

I am a fairly new patient and on each of the 3 visits he has given me plenty of time to discuss any medical concerns. Dr. Kumar is very outgoing and personable and has a willingness to listen to your medical issues.
