      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?
