Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I’ve been in health care as a profession for nearly 40 years. I find Dr Kumar highly intellectual with the skills physicians too often lose while at the same time an excellent communicator. His staff is cordial and his nursing team is well schooled in thei field but have the traits I admire in that they listen. This is a great specialty office and I believe Dr Kumar is the best I’ve seen. I feel fortunate to have found him!
