Excellent doctor, takes to listen and understand the situation unlike others. A bit of a wait, worth it for an unrushed and thorough appointment

Dr. Kumar was able to diagnose me after I had already seen multiple other doctors who were not able to make any progress. I was treated with the latest guidelines for my condition and am very grateful for his care as I am now doing much better.

Gave me wrong apt. Date, had me wait 1.10 hr in the room for my appointment. Was scheduled surgery without seeing medical records. Cancelled surgery morning of because insurance Co. Said they never returned phone calls. No calls back, I called four times to speak to manager then doctor. They called me a month later to reschedule surgery, no apology for two of us missing a day of work. What a false this office is. They are not here to help us with chronic pain issues. They just want to inject you

Dr. Prashant Kumar is TRULY AMAZING, as well as his nurses, Techs and front desk staff. They have all been incredible at each visit. Doctor Kumar spent time with me discussing the MRI of my back and subsequently gave me options for pain relief. I also had a shoulder issue and he addressed that as well. I was welcomed by friendly staff and made very comfortable during each procedure. My shoulder pain has been eliminated and he has done wonders with my back. I highly recommend Dr. Kumar.

i saw Dr. Kumar back in January. I was referred by my doctor who spoke very highly of him. I had an auto accident 6 years ago and have stabbing pain in my back and leg. He looked over my records and gave me options for treatment and i went with an injection in my back. I had the injection the next week and my pain has decreased tremendously. I will need 2-3 injections a year to keep the pain down but that is a small price to pay to not be in constant daily pain.

I have had back pain for years. My pcp always tried to give me pain meds and never really tried to treat the pain. After asking over and over i was finally referred to Dr Kumar. I was very happy after meeting with the him for the first time. He didnt try to give me meds and even said he rarely ever prescribes them. We went over my MRI and he set me up for a procedure to help the pain in my back. I was skeptical that it would actually work but it did. My pain is probably 80% better. Great md!

If I am correct this is Dr. Kumar in Worcester Shore Drive. I had one visit and loved him! . The minute I was called in to the room I was felt at ease with this process The wait was long but I was offered a drink of water which was a nice touch. Typically you just wait. I had been hesitant to pursue any injection type treatment, but it is clear I made the right decision. Dr. Kumar was kind, understanding, and offered me a procedure which I am scheduled for soon. Hoping for the best !

Incompetent doctor, nurses, and staff. major blood loss during routine simple procedure, Dr. Kumar didn't know how to stop the bleeding & then they gave me anesthesia. doctor & nursing staff left for the day and I woke up hours later as 2 people were closing for the night. No one knew I was still there. Dr.Kumar wrote up fictitious report to cover up his incompetence & he didn't realize I would get a copy of it. Wait time was over 2 hours past my appointment time because he double-books all appt
