Dr. Sivakumar cares about her patients. She takes the time to actually listen to me and answers all my concerns too. I'm clearly not a number, I'm a person to her.

Dr. Sivakumar is the only doctor I have ever seen to be so genuinely concerned about my wellbeing along with my overall health. I can tell she cares about me both professionally and personally. I have never been so confident in my health care provider then I am with Dr. Sivakumar!

Dr Sivakumar was the best doctor my family ever had. After many years she moved from our area. She took the time to explain everything and why she was ordering tests. We miss her and wish she would come back

Dr.Sivakumar is simply amazing. She has changed my life forever, i was told by many of doctors i couldn't have children and would need surgery to remove my reproductive system. She explains everything, spends time, and very compassionate. Happy she is opening her own practice :)

She saw my mother for a health check up (post-hip replacement surgery). She was through and spent time explaining her health status. Very approachable and friendly

Dr Sivakumar is the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever met in my life. I had seen no less than 10 doctors 4 different specialties during a bad time in my life where I was had serious trouble breathing. Turns out it was acid reflux, and she diagnosed it in 30 minutes of discussion. She recommended surgery, which I eventually did after more of my own research. After the surgery, I was able to eliminate 5 medications. I cannot thank her enough. She truly improved my quality of life.

When Dr. Sivakumar had an independent practice, it was much better. She was able to spend time with her patients, ordered the tests that they needed and cared for the patients the way they need cared for. Unfortunately, she joined a practice that limited her. Hopefully, now she has left this practice, she will branch out on her own again and give her patients the care they need. She is kind, accommodating, intelligent, has great compassion and knows her patients inside and out.

Dr. Sivakumar saved my life. She is a wonderful doctor who sent me to a cardiologist as an emergency when I went into her office with what I thought was mild indigestion. My EKG was not weird, but she asked me to humor her anyway. She also called ahead and made sure that I was seen right away. I cannot thank her enough for her competence and her level of caring. She is truly a blessing.
