What People Say About Dr. Peninnah Kumar, DPM

I was struggling with foot pain for many years. Could not consider walking as an excercise because I will end up in stress fracture. Dr.Kumar recommended some exercises for the foot, proper shoes & insoles & now with proper foot support, I have been able to walk as a daily excercise. I have taken to jogging too. Gone are my daily foot pains. Thank you Dr.Kumar for helping me experience this miracle.

I have been going to a dermatologist for a while about the skin on my feet and my husband suggested I see a podiatrist. Best decision I ever made. I love Dr. Kumar. She has given me many options to try and finally they are healing up!! The office staff is wonderful and I’ve been very happy!

Best podiatrist I've ever been to. Not only the least pain I've experienced with injections and toenail surgery, but she's personable, kind, and a good communicator. Staff is great, too.

Dr. Penny Kumar was referred to me by another doctor so I already felt she would do a good job. I have to say she did an excellent job. Her offices are located right off the interested (I-40) in Hermitage/Old Hickory. Parking is convenient. Her staff was very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Kumar was personable and extremely professional. I would recommend her to others. Thank you, Deborah

Excellent physician. Fully trust her medical opion and guidance. Four years ago treated a sever ankle sprain due to rolling foot from golf injury. Now taking care if proper foot care with orthotics to eliminate back pain. No need to see anyone else when it comes to your feet. Highly recommend Doctor Kumar.

Dr Kumar is an excellent physician. She LISTENS to her patients and stays involved in not only their podiatry needs, but also their overall health. She is always available and consistently provides exemplary care. I only wish I might have her as my ONLY physician.

Dr Kumar performed Bunion surgery on my left foot in April. I followed all instructions on elevating, icing, and wound care. After 3 weeks I was back in a normal shoe and walking normal. After another week I was back at my F/T job which requires me to be on my feet on a concrete floor for 8 hrs a day. Thanks to Dr Kumar, I am back to all my normal activities with no more foot pain!

Dr. Kumar is excellent, she listens and has a wonderful bedside manner and was amazing in treating me along with her excellent assistant "T". The only negative I had was the lady in the Hermitage office, she was not very friendly, was rude about payments she acted like we were trying to get out without paying when I was trying to get my credit card information, very rude if I did not love Dr. Kumar so much I would never have stepped back in that office.
