What People Say About Dr. Saumya Kumar, MD

I came to Dr. Kumar as a very unusual case : symptoms of Addison's Disease with no signs of adrenal or pituitary damage. It took patience and time to observe my condition as it got worse and Dr. Kumar was able to diagnose and now treats me for my unique situation (Addison's Disease caused by nerve damage from Multiple Sclerosis). I really appreciated that she did not give up on me or pass me to another physician. You can be sure she will give you and your needs solid, clinical care.

I've been a patient of Dr. Kumar for almost 4 years and during this time I've grown to see the true meaning of the oath that every doctor should follow and base their practice around. This young lady really cares for her patients and the way you know this is the amount of quality care and time that she spends doing what she's been called to do. I saw her just today 6/21/2017 and during our time together she gave me hope that so many times a diabetic just can't seem to find. Thanks Dr. Kumar!!

Dr Kumar is a very kind doctor and concerned with ones health. She is not the type of doctor that will hang on the door to hurry up and scurry out of the room. She listens to you and all of your concerns.

Dr, Kumar is superb!! First doctor in years that did not blow me off and was genuine concerned about my health & well being. My first visit, I had been sick for over eight months and seen several specialist and still NO answers and A1C was over 10. By my second visit my blood sugars were normal for first time in years. Now my A1C has been in normal range for over six months. Dr. Kumar has been the missing link to my medical issues. She is very knowledgeable and has awesome bedside manner.

If my insurance united Healthcare, hadn't reccommended her, I honestly don't think I would be alive, my sugar was over 450 when I first went in for visit in August 15. She is the more caring doctor I have ever been too.my A1C was at 12, and now 3/14/16, it is down to 7.1. God Bless her and her care and ability to get my health back in good shape.. Sincerely Charlotte, Cabot AR

So glad to find such a very knowledgeable physician. She is very familiar with many treatment options and did not want to rush to insulin as a solution just because I was a difficult case. Very thorough. She listened to what I have learned about MY diabetes (everyone is different) over the years, reviewed my test results, and set up a treatment plan accordingly. I am having NO side effects to her choices and have lost 27 lbs. in 9 weeks. AIC 7.2!!!! Excellent bedside manner. Very warm.
