Not pleased with the visit and was billed for a follow up visit I called to cancel a week prior. Went in for a general physical exam and ended up with bills when insurance covers physical exams.

She didn’t take my hand injury seriously. I kept saying it was my left and she kept saying and writing right. Then she recommended “Salonpas” and that I should wrap my hand with it. What she did not say is that salonpas are made with lidocaine and is purely numbing meds. I said I did not want pills or anything addictive of the kind and not only did she say get these, she did so with zero warnings. Still gotta read the label of course but I’m still now gonna get a second opinion.

She's a lovely, caring, smart, and knowledgeable doctor. She clearly cares about her practice and patients, and she knows a lot about both natural treatments and the newest medications. However, my wait time was over 30 minutes and that was frustrating -- that's on admin though and not the doctor. I'll be back because of her quality of service and clear care!

Dr Kumar was kind, thorough, and had a lovely bedside manner. She is considerate and patient when I asked her questions about health topics I didn’t understand.

Dr. Kumar is an incredible doctor. Her bedside manner is personable and kind. I rarely go to the doctor and she made me feel calm and hopeful for a full recovery of my symptoms. Highly recommend.
