If you have any choice at all do not use this doctor for anything more than routine care. His staff is very unpleasant and difficult to deal with. Dr. Kumar himself is not terrible, but refuses to address concerns and merely responds with patronizing platitudes. They are definitely NOT patient centered.

I was referred to Dr. Kumar by my GP and have had nothing but pleasant experiences in all interactions with the front office staff, his nurse, and himself. Dr. Kumar REALLY took his time to hear me out, to explain everything to me, and I feel like I am in the hands of an experiences, caring, and compassionate doctor. It is hard to get an initial appointment but only because there are only two endocrinologists in the entire city. I am glad we get to have him here in Bloomington.

I would never visit this office again. Not only are they so backed up that it's challenging to get an appointment except several months out, the nurse staff was completely disingenuine, unhelpful, and careless with my paperwork needed. Even though they made a mistake with it they would not correct it and wasted my time. They had absolutely no empathy for my situation and had every opportunity to make the situation right but instead chose to stand behind their terrible policy.
