What People Say About Dr. Vikas Kumar, MD
Reply
Dr. Kumar is one of the best physicians we have been fortunate to find to help our daughter. She has several autoimmune diseases with many complications affecting her neurological system. After much exasperation, a friend recommended Dr. Kumar and he made a profound impression and difference in my daughter's life and health. We owe such a debt of gratitude because he diagnosed and treated her successfully when others could not. This man is tops in his field and so very kind and compassionate.
