Dr. Kumar is an excellent surgeon . My husband, also a surgeon, had heard from other physicians about Dr. Kumar and suggested I become his patient. Dr. Kumar is a truly a caring physician and amazing when it comes to diagnosing your problem and a genius in the operating room.

Very professional and knowledgable. I was referred to him by another neurosurgeon for a second opinion. Dr. Kumar requested a scanner with contrast and decided exactly what my problem was and very graphycally explained it to me.. I highly recoment Dr. Kumar. The only negative thing I can say is that he was understaffed and the office seamed to be going thru a transition.

Good luck dealing with the office staff. Despite his website saying he is accepting new patients, the rude woman who answered the phone asked for my name, then told me he is not accepting new patients. I tried explaining the connection with a friend of his, but she simply said "I'm just following directions. No new patients."

I have heard he is a very good doctor my reason for this review was my experience and in no way has anything to do wit weather he is or isn't . The office staff seemed uninvolved and was generally rude . All my experiences with dr. We're good . But very hard to schedule appt. I didn't feel like he had time to deal with me . On the occasions I did see him he explained things well had faith in him. I'm not sure if the disconnect was the office personal or him . It was almost impossible to see him.
