Doctor Kumar is the most soft spoken, gentlest doctor we have ever met!!!! He is so caring too! His bedside manner is excellent!!! He truly cares about helping his patients the best that he can. I have seen Doctor Kumar three times and will see him again soon. My husband now sees him and feels the same way I do. Our daughter is going to see him in the near future and I am sure she will love him too. Thank you Dr. Kumar for all of your excellent care and expertise. Sincerely, The Pansings

Dr Kumar is wonderful. I have Crohns Disease and he has been amazing for the past 9 years. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kumar was very good explaining the procedure and even asking about other conditions that I have; although not part of the procedure I was seeing him for at that time he gave me some very good advice on the unrelated condition which is also part of gastroenterology. I will be contacting him again. I did not consider the staff as part of this review although I had no problems with any contact with them. At this point, I have full confidence in Dr. Kumar's expertise.

The staff called to verify my visit was covered on my insurance and assured me it was 100%. After my visit and a referral for colonoscopy the referred doctors office called to inform me they were not in my network and therefore would not be covered. now Dr Kumar's office is billing me for services I was assured were 100% covered. They do not know what they are doing. I am being told That I was rendered services and am therefore responsible for the bill even though the services were worthless.

Will not go the length to get your medication approved. Staff very unwilling to help. Angie had the worst attitude and will not help you with anything, very inappropriate something is wrong with her. Failed to get my medications approved half way through treatment. Angie stated she did not have all day to fax my script to pharmacy even though I was running out of medications. Staff has no experience in the medical field. Please if your life is counting on this group of people, go elsewhere

The office staff in not knowledgeable with labs, I constantly had to manage my own labs, meds etc. The office personnel could not even get a fax for my medication when I was running out of life saving medicine, the staff personnel (Angie) said that she did not have all day to fax my script to the pharmacy even though I was running out of medicine which had to be taken every day without fail. Please do not go there if unless you want nothing but complete frustration and incompetence and no meds
