Patient Comments (1)
in St Louis, MO |
Dr. Kumar conflicts with other doctor's instructions. Have one doctor saying one thing and him saying another. He also is very rude and yells at his patients. There are several times I have left feeling belittled and do not like to be treated so rudely. He is one of the very few doctors that see his own patients at Gateway Regional which is why we are with him, but very seriously considering switching doctors because of the constant attitude.
