MILITARY COMMUNITY BEWARE!! My wife is a patient of Dr. KUMAR and we currently recieved an assignment to move to Colorado. In order to get my wifes medical clearance, the base requested a medical form be filled out by her PCM. We took the form to Dr. Kumar to fill out and he said he would only fill out the form if we paid $100. In my 20 years of military service I had never heard of this, but needed the form quickly so wasn't going to make a big deal out of it until 1 month later i called back saying I needed it ASAP due to my deadline and he then had his staff call us back and say he will only fill it out if we now pay him $140! Its unfortunate, but I think his ARROGANCE outweighs his experience and professionalism! The military base requested the form so I turned it over to them and plan on filing a BBB complaint as well as a complaint to the Valdosta Chamber of Commerce!

He was very disrespectful to my elderly mother and spoke to her with his back turned and seemed annoyed when she’s asked him to repeat his questions. Did not examine her and was just rude. Will not take her back to him and wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Well if you are sick and need antibiotics, this doctor will not give you any unless you have a fever. I went to him and my lips were numb and had a bad respiratory problem. He said it was just a virus. I had to end up getting antibiotics elsewhere to help this . I went to him again and my hip was hurting. He said bend down so I did. Then he said , "nothing is wrong with you but if it will make you feel better you can get an X-ray. He refused to order a Mir as the doctor in the OR room ordered.

Dr. Kumar is moody to the point you have to ask the clerk at the desk (Maxine) what kind of mood is he in. Is he talking today or is he ok. Not patient oriented. Only takes a minute with you then files insurance at higher rate. I have been with my mother when she plainly told him something was wrong with her throat and he ignored her. I have been sick and told him and was ignored with you will be ok. He doesn't want to give medication to you.

I find Dr. Kumar to be an excellent physician. He has some days he is an in an out not very friendly but as long as he is a good Dr. I don't mind him being human. None of us are friendly every day. Not that he is rude, just quiet, efficient with his time, but still makes you feel as though he cares.

Dr. Kumar has been our physician since moving to the area in 2004. We have complete confidence in his doctoring and his decisions. I know that if I am not feeling well or having an asthma attack that I won't have to wait days to see him. His staff is wonderful about making sure that I am seen asap.
