This is the most elusive doctor I've ever encountered. He has never, ever even touched me, much less examined me. All he does in my presence is ask a few questions and type on his computer.

I have BCBS Federal Employee program. I will not recommend this Doctor for the following reasons: You will get a bill from the anesthesiologist because the one this office use is not in the BCBS network. You will a bill from pathology because they are not in the BCBS network as well. Instead of using facilities that are in the network they just use whatever they want and you end up all screwed up. Stay away from this Doctor please.

I visited this doctor for a routine colonoscopy , I was not having any gi problems at that time' since day one post leaving his office , I have expercienced serious gi problems, including a small bowel obstruction, not sure what occured in his office due to the fact he refused to converse with me or my family following the test, but communicated through his staff members while he was an arms reach, I am so afraid to ever have another col. done, I am left in the dark as where to go from here

I have had a chronic autoimmune disease affecting my liver for 14 years, and after a series of doctors in another part of the country, I found Dr. T. Kumar here in Ocala. He is by far the most knowledgeable and caring of all of my GI physicians. I literally do trust him with my life.

Creepiest guy I have ever met. I couldn't understand anything he says and his Office manager doesn't know what day of the week it is
