      Excellent physician. He always takes time to explain, in detail, what is the problem(s) and goes over all actions so you don't feel pressured to do anything. That is important.
      in Schererville, IN |
      I was referred to Dr Kumar by my regular doctor and he preformed my first colonoscopy on June of 2016. His reputation with the nurses and staff at the hospital is nothing short of remarkable. In the short time that I have gotten to know Dr Kumar, I have found him to be straight forward and caring. I would recommend him to anyone that needs his services.
      Madison, WI |
      Dr. Kumar was dismissive off my symptoms and unhelpful about how to recover from my serious GI problems simply because he couldn't see anything obvious during the colonoscopy. His clinic seems to be run to maximize profit. Overbooking patients a on rare office visit days and focusing on doing scopes for new patients which pays more.
      Crown Point, IN |
      I had issues for over 8 years that no one had answers for. I saw numerous doctors that could never give me a decent answer to my symptoms. Dr. Kumar was able to successfully diagnose me with an uncommon disorder within a few visits that none of my previous physicians or specialists had even mentioned. He's very friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I cannot be more thankful for Dr. Kumar.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
