Testimonials

I tore my ACL back in November and was previously seeing Dr. G. to treat it. I was sent to physical therapy with ibuprofen and given an ACL brace. After my month’s follow-up, I expressed concerns about continued pain even with physical therapy, and I didn’t feel like anything was getting better. He belittled me and offered no other options except for physical therapy and ibuprofen. After a few months of this vicious cycle, I became very frustrated and expressed these frustrations to my wonderful physical therapist, who referred me to Dr. Kumar. This was the best decision I have ever made. I had an appointment with his PA, Rachel, who was absolutely wonderful and walked me through the MRI results and explained everything to me. By the end of the appointment, I was scheduled for surgery in less than a month and was given direct contact information for any questions I had. Rachel and Dr. Kumar listened to my concerns and gave me solutions as well as options. They talked to me like a person and validated all of the feelings and concerns I had. I just got home from my post-op appointment, and even though it sucks and the road to recovery is very long, I would still choose them. I have felt supported and safe throughout the entire process. I can’t speak for everyone, but my experience with Dr. Kumar was one of the best by far, and I would recommend him and his staff to anyone and everyone I know! Great job and thank you for all you do!

Dr. Kumar is probably one of the best specialists I have been to. He’s down to earth, real, didn’t rush me, and listened. Medicine the way it should be. The staff was excellent as well.
