Dr. Radha Kumar is an excellent physician when compared to so many doctors I experienced before. Got treated for my depression within just two and-a-half years, which I thought wold take much longer and more specialist visits, she saved both my money and time. She is very intelligent and quick in understanding & assessing the problem. Initially it was very surprising and later gave a strong belief and confidence on her to get relax about my health status.
Edison, NJ |
She is an amazing doctor and I will always be grateful to her for saving my husband's life who had heart attack. Had we listened to her earlier and performed all the testing at regular intervals, the incident could have been avoided. People don't realize, how important it is to listen to the doctor and get the tests done.
Doylestown, PA |
Makes you wait for hours everytime you go and Determines the diseases without listening completely and doesnt change the medication even if the symptoms doesnt go away. I would recommend to stay away. very commercial.
South Bound Brook, NJ |
I had a very good experience with Dr. Kumar. She took the time to explain everything.
in Avenel, New Jersey |
I have been coming to Dr. Kumar since last year and I could not be happier with my new PCP. She is very kind, understanding, and dedicated to her patients. She will take the time to answer all questions. Unlike most doctors she truly cares about her patients and will do her best to prevent problems before they get serious. Her staff is friendly as well.

Dr kumar is a great doctor so attentive and always caring
Horrible AME for FAA medicals. Will do unnecessary number of tests to send you on specialists referrals before approving. Probably a way to earn revenue since her initial charges are low.
Aviation Medical Examiner(AME) requirements are stipulated by FAA & AME has to conform to those guidelines. If Airman has health conditions, AME is not authorized to issue certificate, but can help with special issuance by FAA . Yes, we are guilty of going "above and beyond" to proactively resolve the matter in your favor. Referring to your own specialist or get tests as directed by FAA ,is to ensure that the pilot in good health for safe flying; It is illegal to do so for financial motive

Love dr Kumar, She os more than a doctor to me and my family ! She Is very considerate, patient and Caring. Takes her time talking to me and explaining. I highly recommend her to all my friends.
in Piscataway, NJ |
Rough attitude and does unneeded tests.
in Rahway, NJ |
More than a good doctor, I value the fact that you are a good care taker. Thanks for motivating me to achieve what i thought i was not capable of. yes i am a confident driver now and its just because of your motivation. The way you treated me during my first pregnancy with Asthma complication was exceptional. It could have been a nightmare without your medical supervision. Its not only the medicine you gave, more than that your motivational words and inspirational thoughts that helped me.
South Plainfield, NJ |
Everything is in terms of money in Dr. Radha Kumar's office. You pay money for the reports per page, for the forms that you get it filled from her, or for using credit cards. Reports are not emailed or faxed nor are Prescriptions faxed. Staff is not that good, especially Jessica!!
in Edison |
My experience with Radha Kumar has been excellent. She is always on top of the situation. I have some difficult health issues. She calls me personally to check on my progress and follow-up treatments. She has a good network and the specialists she has referred me to turned out to be one of the best. My whole family goes to her. We trust her completely and will gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a good family physician.

Dr. kumar is the best I have seen so far! She is very intelligent, speaks very clearly and makes sure to get to bottom of the problem. I have lost 15 lbs in 3 months just following her advice! I am so glad I found her as my GP. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable too. Iam glad I found Dr. kumar she's a blessing! Iam I currently pregnant so have been referred to an OB but I will truly miss her!
