I've been a patient of Dr. Kumar over 20 years. He is extremely thorough an his patients are his priority. He takes the time to run the appropriate test prior to any diagnosis. His NP Brett is outstanding. Brett is easy to talk too an he listens. Recently I've had some testing done an I was terrified an Brett was there to explain everything which helped me tremendously. The telehealth sessions are not rushed an very helpful. They all go above an beyond. The ladies in the office are wonderful yet professional. They are always there to help with booking appointments, referrals an questions. This office has been exceptional an compassionate handling covid. Brett an Dr. Kumar are an excellent team an all the medical assistants an the office are exceptional too.

Dr. Kumar was my mother's doctor for many years. I switched over to him 1.5 years ago. NP Brett and Dr. Kumar make a great team. I have never had an issue.

My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Vinay Kumar at his Marlborough MA office for the past 10 years since we moved to a neighboring town. We both have our annual physical exams once a year and followup with NP at mid-year. The care as always been first class and as part of the Partners Health Care System there are easy followups with specialists at MassGeneral, Brigham&Womens and all of the other world famous medical facilities in eastern MA. Dr. K is caring and will drill down on your (or his) health concerns until the condition is exposed and then treated.

I've been a patient of Dr. Kumar for years and years, he is a wonderful doctor and quite thorough. NOW....his office staff is at best 'ok'. They repeatedly leave their phones on the answering service typically at least an hour after they've opened and just yesterday i called at 4:00 (they close at 5:00) and they had already switched over to the answering service which is just a recording. They are terrible when it comes to that. You can be put on hold for many minutes at a time and when they pick up and you state you want an Rx refill they just transfer you to an automated service to take your information. Folks, put the Rx option as part of your phone answering service when it goes to voicemail and stop leaving it on the answering service that doesn't answer the phone.

Very professional and takes time to listen to what I have to say. Recently, my wife had a problem and he was able to accommodate us on a short notice and took time to coordinate her tests including CT scan. We have been patients for 30+years. Very satisfied.

Dr. Vinay. and his staff can not found out the correct diagnosis, and prescribe the appropriate treatment (even in simple cases). For example, when I had a sore throat, I had to come to the doctor three times and eventually he sent me to a specialist.
