Dr. Kumar has been excellent from beginning to end of my process of removing my eyelid drooping problem. The surgical staff and the office staff has been awesome as well. Anytime I had questions post-op, I had no problems getting my questions answered. Very pleased with Dr Kumar, and very happy with how every thing came out!!

My experience with Dr. Kumar and Triad has been extremely easy and professional. Dr. Kumar did surgery on a droopy eyelid and the results are wonderful! I couldn’t be more pleased. It’s hard to tell which eye had the surgery now. Before and after the surgery, he was very thorough and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Kumar and Triad.

Dr. Kumar is an outstanding oculoplastic surgeon with an excellent staff; he also has a great personality. During the pre-op consult he establishes rapport with the patient, instills confidence and describes the planned procedure & recovery routine. In June, 2020 he performed for me right eyelid ptosis corrective surgery with a great result. Hopefully, in fall 2020 my left eyelid will qualify for the same surgery. Dr. Kumar is highly recommended by me.

Linda McMullen – Feb 05, 2020
Had eyelids lifted and excess skin removed to improve vision. I had no idea just how bad the skin “over hang” obstructed my vision or how bad I looked. Dr Kumar did surgery to repair both eyes with immediate results. After my 2 month visit, the results were amazing. I have referred family and friends. The whole process from beginning to end couldn’t have been better.

Dr. Kumar is great. Professional while still being kind and caring. He is willing to talk to you and answer any questions you may have. I had surgery to fix drooping eyelids that was blocking my vision. That was 5 days ago. I have very little swelling or bruising. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Absolutely no pain.

Dr. Kumar has a very polite professional outlook to you as a patient in his care. I am still seeing him after my eyelid operation and I can only grade him as of this writing, to any type satisfaction to my operation. But so far after almost two weeks I have healed on a normal scale. Having some weeks left to heal, I am satisfied at this point of my post healing progression.

He is a very reassuring doctor. He has a very easy personality and gives all the information a patient needs, plus he takes plenty of time to discuss options, if there are any. His surgery is an astounding success for me, and I am very, very pleased. There are no complaints regarding Dr. Kumar.

Dr. Kumar is an exceptional surgeon. He was very thorough in explanation during the pre-op appt as well as before/after surgery. He took time to answer my questions and helped ease my mind. The follow ups were great too. My only complaint would be I called the office several times regarding some questions I had and I only received one call back. However, when I emailed them, Dr. Kumar called me back personally to answer my questions and apologized. He’s great! Highly recommended.

I was apprehensive about the surgery. It went well after a few uncomfortable days. Three months now and am very happy. No one know I had anything done until I show them a before pic. Would highly recommend Dr. Kumar if you are considering it.
