I went to see Dr. Kumar for a lung biopsy. He was friendly and put me at ease. He explained the procedure he was going to perform and what to expect. He has a great bed side manor and answered all my questions. He also has a great nurse named Mike. Mike also put me at ease and we even had a couple laughs. Mike told me even if I have cancer that it is curable, that I can make it. I really needed to hear that, thank you Mike! Thank you Dr. kumar.
