Excellent. Takes time to explain things. Diagnosed a condition that I had for many years but was missed by other Drs. Looks at and is concerned about the whole body, not just the colon

Dr. Kumar came recommended to me by my wife, and the recommendation was great. Dr. Kumar and his staff at St. Mary's not only saved my life, but were highly communicative and present along an unexpected hospital admission that saved my life. I cannot credit his office more than this -- Dr. Kumar and his staff are all individually wonderful and deserve high praise.

Dr. Kumar takes the time to listen to your symptoms and concerns. He assured me he will get to the bottom of my problem and that has given me peace of mind as I wait for the results of an upper GI and CT scan he has scheduled. I highly recommend Dr. Kumar and Richmond Gastroenterologist Assiciates.

I saw him for stomach pain and stool concerns. He had suggested I do things that I had already said I had tried. After a few times of reiterating in office and following up through email twice, telling him I've already tried that, he continued to suggest I try something I've already tried. I feel as though he did not listen at all to what I was saying.

Went to Dr. Kumar with Gastro issues, (which ended up being a gall bladder attack). He ordered a few tests, but said that he could not help us. I suffered 3 more months in pain, spending thousands of dollars with other medical specialties, before going to another GI doctor, who ordered three other tests, including a Hidascan, (which measures the flow of bile out of the gall bladder). This test revealed that my gall bladder needed to be removed.

Had a great experience with Dr. Kumar. He was very kind and took a lot of time to explain the problem and treatment options. He saw us promptly for appointments and his staff was very friendly and helpful.

Very caring, explains things very thoroughly, layman's terms. His nursing staff prepping for colonoscopy was so nice. Put me at ease from the beginning.

Dr. Kumar identified a long standing problem that I was experiencing with experiencing pain after eating. I was diagnosed with PAD and have had a stent placed in my Celiac Artery and have since gained 5 lbs.! I am very grateful for Dr. Kumar and his staff!
