Having had a surgery on my left leg from my ankle to my hip,an unnecessary bypass by Dr Nguyen that closed in 2weeks. Dr Kumar went in an cleared in minutes. Dr Miro bragged he could fix anything vascular. Went he did a angiogram on my left leg and carotid artery he could not help me. Dr Kumar put 2 stents in each of iliac artery's?. He later cleared the bypass? in my left leg. This year my right leg became clogged. In a hour in his own hospital I was out by 1. A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dr. Kumar treats his patients like family. He saved my mom's leg when she was told she had to amputate. Very good doctor.

My leg ablation was done by a nurse practitioner and Dr. Kumar wasn't present. I ended up with nerve damage and blood clots that weren't superficial. I went back 2X after the procedure and complained of the pain in my leg. They kept telling me I just had superficial blood clots and not to worry. However after going elsewhere, I had to have stomach injections for 10 days and was put on a blood thinner for these blood clots. I could have had a stroke or worse because of Kumar's negligence!

To whom it may concern, I have been having a problem on my two swollen legs & leg pain for over 5 years. I have seen other doctors without an answer to my problem in the past. Dr Kumar found my problem within the second visit and started treatment. I'm so pleased with his experience and how he was able to treat my condition fast. Now I can feel at ease and know I am able to get my problem solve. I will be receiving baby steps for my condition but I know I'm on the way to recovery.
