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.

Nice office with comfortable waiting area. Front office staff were courteous and professional. Initial documentation completed in about ten minutes, and I was admitted just a few minutes later. Dr. Kumra is business-like but open, and I felt heard and supported. My condition was not serious, but I was in need of immediate attention, and the office was open on a bank holiday and took me within one day's notice. My first visit, and I'm looking forward to building a professional relationship.

She was great! Asked a lot of questions. Differently from other doctors, I actually felt she cared. However, she was slightly impersonal and cold- some might like this in a doctor but I'd rather a bit more of a personal touch. I would still recommend her for anyone looking for a good ENT doctor!

Wonderful knowledgeable care from Dr Kumra who instantly diagnosed my ear infection. Only critique is that their office feels a little outdated, and none of the furniture is size friendly, which feels . The office chairs are very narrow with arms, which alienates any larger patient from being able to sit and the office (Dr Kumra and her lovely nursing assistant didnt know how to lift the arms from the very old exam chair-- which did have liftable arms). So it would be great to see at least 1 armless chair / couch option available. Otherwise recommend them fully.

I had trouble hearing and was in discomfort so I made an appointment with Dr. Kumra. She was able to quickly relieve my discomfort and improved my hearing by removing the wax (and even a piece of a qtip) in my ear that has been built up for years. She and her staff are very professional and friendly.

She is easy to talk to and listens well. She is efficient and treated me well. I was worried because I had to fly in a few days with a terrible infection. She cleared it up and recommended saline spray which helped a lot, in addition to the antibiotic I had to take. Plus she gave me a note for TSA that let me carry hot tea with me for my 6 hour flight -- this was a lifesaver!
