Terrible experience. I called previously to make sure that the procedure I need could be done in one visit , the office personnel assured me it could be . I was prompt to my appointment waited about 40 minutes to be seen . The doctors bedside manner was terrible so unprofessional she made inappropriate comments about my overall appearance. Then I was told that the procedure couldn't be done because she was running behind schedule wise and I would have to make another apppointment to have the procedure completed. She assured me they had evening appointments and I wouldn't have to miss any more work. Asked me to follow up in a week. When I went to the front to schedule I was told evening appointments were not available for the next month and would have to miss work again. I scheduled the appointment for a week later and then called to confirm the appointment the following week to be told I had no appointment that day or time . I then had to find a new competent Ent provider who thankfully was able in less then five minutes to do the procedure.

I have a strange thing happening in my throat that my GP had never seen before. I was sent to Dr Kumra, who was patient enough to really investigate and asked me a lot of questions. I felt like she was really listening and paying attention and also gave me her honest perspective, and set up a follow up appointment to test her hypothesis.

She was wonderful the entire appointment, friendly and involved and getting into what I was there for without delay. She was sensitive to any discomfort or pain her treatment might be causing, And naturally sweet and concerned with out the more typical edge of contrivance that a new doctor might appear to display. No one should hesitate to go to her and enjoy the experience as fully as any medical issue can ever allow.

Great doctor! She is friendly and genuinely cares for her patients. I had a lot of questions about getting rid of a lingering cough and she answered all of them-sometimes with a chuckle if they were inane. I think I'm finally getting some relief thanks to Dr. Kumra. :)

There was an emergency patient in before me, and the receptionist apologized several times that the wait was unusual. Dr. Kumra is excellent - she takes the time to clearly explain everything she is doing and next steps for the patient to take. She is very patient and listens. I didn't feel rushed at all. Highly recommend.

Dr Kumra was very professional in her manner, and thorough, but her attire was somewhat underwhelming . I did , however, feel confident in her treatment of me as a patient. The fact that I had to wait over 30 minutes to be seen was disappointing.

I ended up arriving 30 minutes before my actual appointment time, and was able to be seen within 5-10 minutes. The front desk staff were friendly, and Dr. Kumra effectively and efficiently addressed my concerns, all with wonderful bedside manner. I would happily return, should the need arise!
