Dr. Kumar took my husband on as a patient when he ended up in the hospital with type 2 diabetes. We were traveling at the time and far from home. My husband has had three office visits with Dr. Kumar and has been treated with such kindness and understanding. He has never been rushed along. Dr. Kumar always makes sure that all of our questions are answered and that we understand his instructions. We will miss him greatly when we go back home.
