Have seen dr Kumar for four years. You do have to wait to see him sometimes for hours, but if you want the best concessions have to be made. He is the only doctor able to treat my condition and knew what I had.

1st time I saw Dr. Kumar he was 2 hours late. Then I made my appt. so I would be the 1st patient of the day. He proceeded to be 1 hour late. This is not acceptable and shows complete disrespect to the patient. In the 30 days under his care I did not get better. I was not willing to try any more treatment by this physician as I'd waste most of my time waiting for him in the patient room.

Amazing doctor, been to 15 neurologist, he told me that my headaches were caused by poor sleep habit and medication at night. I was cured by 2nd week. if you you have chronic headaches, do not go further then him.
