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
