Dr. Kumra bedside manners were excellent as she tried to examine my throat and nasal septum. Dr. Kumra explained everything and was gentle in her procedure. Due to inflammation, we were not to complete the examine.

It was a very fast appointment, and I did not have to wait long. We had talked about potentially running a test but I forgot about it until I had already left. She recommended that I come back to run it if I don't get better, but I would have preferred we run the test during my appointment so I wouldn't have to come back. Plus it just makes me feel better to address all potential causes at that time; seems more efficient.

Dr. Kumra was very professional while still being friendly. I have an ongoing issue that has not been properly diagnosed or treated by several other ENT's. She listened to my problem and the treatment she prescribed seems to be working. I am keeping my fingers crossed but I think I have finally found an ENT that knows what they are talking about! Highly recommend!

I saw Dr. Kumra in the morning as I have been having pain in my ear for a while now. She came recommended to me from a good friend who has been seeing her for some time now with a chronic problem. Even though a friend recommended her I like to read reviews and was pleased to see that Dr. Kumra is consistently rated as excellent across the board. (One person seemed to have an issue but as that is an anomaly...) I was not disappointed. The staff was pleasant and I only had to wait about 5 minutes before being seen at my appointment time. The doctor immediately made me feel comfortable with her friendly manner and easy smile. She listened to my complaint, asked relevant questions and seemed genuinely interested in helping me. Her exam was thorough and she took care not to cause me any pain. She prescribed some meds for me which I picked up on my way home and I must say I am already feeling better. I am always a bit tentative about my healthcare providers, and have been to enough to know what is the right and wrong way to deal with a patient. Dr. Kumra did everything right and I am very pleased I went to go see her. Another reason I wanted to see her was that my daughter has some hearing problems and I wanted to vet her before bringing my child. I will be back with my daughter and I am recommending her to all my friends!

Dr. Kumra didn't have much of a bedside manner at all. She and her staff planned to refer me to a swallowing specialist to see if there was anything wrong further down my throat and even though they knew the urgency of my situation, they never followed up with me to schedule an appointment with the specialist, not a phone call or email, nothing. I ended up going elsewhere and had a much better experience.

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.
