I have been seeing dr. Kumar for a few years now: if you are looking for a conversationalist, Dr. Kumar is NOT the doctor you wish to see! she is efficient, to the point, and easy to work with. she has helped me magage my diabetes well, with care and consideration. Dr. Kumar is not an effusive, outgoing person; however, she goes about her business well.

Doctor Kumar did not listen to ME as an individual whatsoever. She lumped me in with everyone else - even after I shared my prior medical records proving that I am not 'normal' when it comes to my thyroid. I hoped that since she is a specialist, that she would look at me as an individual. I was disappointed. I do not plan on ever returning to her and unless you are 'normal', you may want to find a different doctor.

I have been seeing Dr. Kumar for over 5 years for diabetes care. I LOVE her and all of the staff at her office. They treat me like family. She asks questions, listens, advises, praises, and doesn't scold when I don't do things perfectly. I started going to her office when I was newly diagnosed and kind of freaking out. They have supported me through my initial diagnosis, a new diagnosis, and 2 pregnancies. I feel spoiled during my time with them.
