Dr. Kumar has been my neurologist for over 25 years, and I would recommend him highly for anyone who needs a neurologist who is an expert in his field, and one who is very thorough in his testing and treatments. Dr. Kumar truly cares about his patients, and he really strives to improve the health of his patients. Dr. Kumar certainly made a difference in my life helping me with my severe migraine headaches and vascular migraine condition.

I was referred to Dr. Kumar by my PC. He was the only neurology specialist in local area. Where I found Dr. Kumar to be a competent physician as far as I could tell, his practice/administrative staff is woefully lacking. Not only is it difficult to get an appointment (must schedule weeks in advance only to be called to see if you can come in earlier or later), but prescriptions to be filled, particularly controlled substances are usually mishandled, causing me to have to go back to get it fixed.
