I have been going here for years and would not go anywhere else. Dr. Kumar is AWESOME! He is kind, professional, super polite and always explains everything and addresses my questions and concerns honestly and completely. His staff is friendly and I am always greeted with a smile. I feel genuinely cared about as a person here which is sadly not always true at Doctor's offices.
As always my appointment with Dr Kumar’s office was flawless . Took me in within 5 minutes. Staff did all the screening and then I saw Dr Kumar for a few minutes. He always takes as much time as needed you never feel hurried and he will answer all your questions. Both my wife and I have had Dr Kumar as our eye Dr for many years. I have total faith in him and he is simply the best Dr I have ever had.
Excellent. Had cataracts removed by Dr. Kumar following treatment for a minor eye problem approximately 18 years ago. His expertise and dedication to his profession are evident and clearly exhibit a feeling to his patients of being well taken care of.
