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!

I had appt scheduled at 11:30 but called to see if I could bump it up because I ended up being free earlier than I'd anticipated. The office was able to accommodate me earlier, and Dr. Kumra was a great listener and very thorough. Highly recommended!

She was thorough. I only came in for an ear thing but she checked nose and throat too - fixed something I didn't know was wrong in the end. Just wish the wait wasn't so long.

Blarg. Was really happy with my first visit. Today, not so much. Folks who arrived after me were roomed before me. Taken back well after my appointment time despite arriving before it. Not seen until 30 minutes after my appointment time and only seen for five minutes and dismissed. Super frustrating. Not sure that I will return.

I showed up almost 10 minutes early and was seen shortly after i arrived. Dr. Kumra listened attentively, asked questions, took notes and wasn't rushed at all. Her staff is incredibly pleasant and easy to work with. I was also able to get a same-day appointment with her. Highly recommend.

Despite the doctor arriving a bit late, she quickly saw me and spent time to understand the problem and answer all of my questions. She did not make me feel rushed, was genuine and friendly, and attentively checked everything out. I left feeling confident that I understand the situation and what I need to do. One caveat, this was my first visit to an ENT. So I don't have any comparison.

This is my first visit to Dr. Kumra and the experience was wonderful. Her office staff was friendly and seemed genuinely caring. The wait was only a few minutes after paperwork. After a short review Dr. Kumra provided a knowledgeable and gentle approach to my concerns. Once the course of action was determined she provided treatment I needed for relief and I was on my way back to work. I absolutely return to her specialty care when needed.
