Dr Kumar has done the impossible. He has made the colonoscopis that I so dread into something that is actually pleasant. He is so kind, so caring, and has always be so incredibly patient with me when I am anxious, that I have to say I am just grateful that people like Dr. Kumar exist. With my medical history, these procedures are important and it is a relief to know I have this doctor to help me.
