if you need a caring and intelligent surgeon, see Dr Kumar. Various members of my gFamily have seen him for years. He takes the time needed to review any issues you have and provides extremely thorough examinations. He provides understandable explanations and will answer as many questions as you have. He never rushes you along. Our family sees him for colonoscopies and has performed several surgeries on family members. I give him the highest recommendation.

Dr Kumar was fabulous! He took his time with me and my family and explained everything in great detail. When I say took his time, he spent about 45 mins with us. You don't get that these days any more. He truly cares about the patient and what is best for them. His staff was so funny and outgoing. They made us feel like family and very at ease with what we had to do. Having been a patient now for a few months and I would recommend him to anyone.
