Patient Comments (5)
Austin, TX |
Dr. Kumar was condescending, arrogant, and old school (aka, a pill pusher). Zero interest in determining the underlying pathology to explain/resolve symptoms. A total waste of my time and money. Please find a different doctor to see.

I saw Dr. Kumar at his Austin Gastroenterology office in 2015. His recommendation was to take fiber and Miralax; he also said I might have a virus, but ordered no tests whatsoever. Six months later, as nothing had improved for me, I returned to his office. Same recommendations, and still no tests suggested or ordered. So in November 2016 I decided to see another doctor in the practice who is truly excellent. Dr. Kumar turned out to be a complete waste of my time and proved to be worthless.

He was very good at explaining what was going on with my husband using a drawing. He and his staff got us an appointment in 3 days. We have been very happy with Dr. Kumar's professionalism and skill.

I think that a Doctor should really interact more with the patient and not only the assistant.
in Manor, TX |
This corporate nitwit is condescending, judgmental and uncaring, especially to women patients. AG unfortunately dominates the IM scene in Austin so he is well protected. Run away from this arrogant Doctor. Do not trust him with your health.
