Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My mother has had one visit with Dr Kumar. He was very good. He addressed her needs and did a good medical assessment on her. He has a very kind and confident manner about him. His medical assistant and receptionist were also top notch. I was glad to find a doctor who really seemed to care about the geriatric patient. That's hard to find these days.

Never got the opportunity to meet Dr Kumar since his receptionist was extremely rude and refused to help us. My husband was to see the Dr as a follow up from hospitalization and the soonest she would schedule him was over a month away. If you need his services, don't expect any help from his receptionist!
