Dr. Kumar is amazing. I am very serious about my health care and have found my experience with Dr. Kumar very satisfactory. He goes above and beyond and has done research on questions I've presented. He himself calls me and explains in layman's terms the information he has found. This is rare in my experience in the medical field. I rate him the highest and also like Wendy his receptionist. She puts up with my questions!
