Dr. Kumar is a great doctor that listens and works with you for a treatment plan.
in Huntsville, AL |
He will explain why you have something and how if possible. He is willing to spend a lot of time with the patient.
15+ years and had been satisfied with him until just recently. Developed chronic, persistent cough. Has been almost 3 months since slept. Fitbit bracelet states awaken 17 average each nite. Pleaded with him to prescribe cough syrup to help sleep. He refused stating syrup I need is addictive. 60 years old and have yet developed an addiction to ANYTHING. Went to see ENT specialist on my own who did CT scan of sinuses. Sinuses so bad. Scheduled 4 surgical procedures. Said need get new allergist!
