I've seen Dr Kumar for years, for hematology. He is one of the kindest, most caring doctors a person could ever want. He never forgets a face, and addresses all of his patients when he sees them, whether there for treatment, or there to see him. He explains everything very thoroughly, spends however much time is needed to address any concerns, and on two occasions, addressed concerns that had nothing to do with hematology - he's that great of a doctor. I would recommend Dr Kumar 100/100!!
