      I was referred to Dr. Kumar from my PCP, and I am so pleased with the service I received from her and the Neuhaus staff! Everyone was friendly, explained exactly what I could expect, options and costs, and Dr. Kumar was open about discussing my options. I came in expecting to have one of my toenails removed, but it was good to know all the options I had regarding the procedure. I went into the surgery nervous, but she was so kind, gentle, and after following her instructions I have not experienced any of the pain I expected. She was quick, thorough, and I would recommend her any time for any service.

      Dr. Kumar knew exactly what to do to fix my issue - achilles tendonitis. I was walking better in days. No more hobbling around first thing in the morning. I wish I had gone to see her months ago. Short wait time. Friendly, and I felt that she truly cared about helping me feel better.

      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.

      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.

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!
