    Dr. Kumar is truly wonderful. In a specialty were we patients are often vulnerable and fearful of our futures because of our disease, and often in chronic pain or stages of miserable disability, Dr. Kumar is genuinely warm and caring and works effectively to help you maintain a normal life which you might not have had otherwise without her. She treats you like an individual she knows and values, and addresses your entire health picture. There is no better doctor. To know her is to love her.

    I love Dr. Kumar. I would travel to another state to see her if I had too. Very kind and knowledgeable. She takes her time to make sure I understand what's going on and shows genuine concern about my RA and how it is doing. She has my RA pretty much symptom free.
