Dr. Kumar is the greatest. He is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, patient, and professional. I know my health is in the best, competent hands when he is performing my procedures. His office staff is also so helpful when scheduling appointments and refilling medications. The staff at the Waterfront Surgery Center is also so wonderful, kind and caring. I would recommend Dr. Kumar to anyone who wants to know that their care is with the best doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kumar for over 10 years. I absolutely love this doctor. He is patient and very compassionate. He takes the time to explain everything before and after all procedures. If you have any questions, he is very accommodating and ensures that you understand.

Dr. Kumar and staff were fantastic. The prep drink that you need to take before your test cost me $80, with insurance and tasted so nasty that I got sick on it. Dr. Kumar told me about a prep drink that a lot of doctors use, Gatorade and a laxative powder, costs under $15. It did the trick and tasted fine. I definitely recommend Dr. Kumar and Staff and his Prep drink.

Had my second routine colonoscopy and was just treated by Dr. Kumar; all at the Waterfront Surgery Center in Homesteaded, PA. Dr. Kumar takes the time explain the procedure and follows up afterwards to answer any questions or concerns. From the intake receptionist, all of the nurses and anesthesia staff, to the discharge nurse.... these folks put you at ease and really care about you (as opposed to typical out patient hospital shuffle). I highly recommend Dr. Kumar.

Dr. Kumar is a very compastionate dr. I had seen other drs about my stomach issues & got dismissed like i was a number. This Dr kept fighting along with me to find out where my problems were coming from & got me results quickly. It was wonderful to know that i wasn't alone at any point of my treatment. I would HIGHLY recommend this Dr to everyone that has gastro issues.

ny experience with Dr Kumar was very positive. After almost 3 years of complaints of GI issues that had become increasingly worse I am finally getting relief from symptoms. Dr Kumar was very persistent in getting answers to my condition. I appreciated his professionalism and compassion and would recommend him to family and friends
