My mother recently relocated to Maryland from Florida and we had the daunting task of finding her a new primary care physician. After some research we chose Dr. Sivikumar and feel we really lucked out. Our experience with her thus far has been very positive. She is very caring, knowledgeable and down to earth!!

I love Dr. Sivakumar, she provides the most wonderful service to her patients and I hope that I will be able to find that kind of service and personal touch with a new provider in my next adventure. It is with sadness that I had to say goodbye to her today as I am moving to Florida at the end of April. If you are fortunate to be able to have her as your provider you will be blessed.

I finally found a Dr. That really cares about my health, and makes sure I thoroughly understand what and why. She looks at the total picture and works on the cure and not just the symptom. She is a God sent and I cannot say enough about her. Her staff treats you like family too!

Dr. Sivakumar is on outstanding physician. She has a great talent as a diagnostician, an arsenal of helpful information, is an outstanding listener, and has genuine concern for her patients and their welfare. Her fellow physicians also have recognized her top level abilities. I would highly recommend her services and feel very lucky to have stumbled upon her as I moved to the area in 2020. As a long term registered nurse, I have high expectations for my own medical care, and she has exceeded them. Furthermore, she has worked with me to address my health concerns and issues, which I appreciate.
