Philosophy Of Care

I believe the cornerstone of excellent and effective medical care is based on the partnerships I have with my patients. Every patient and every clinical scenario is different, and I strive to tailor my approach for each patient. All patients deserve up-to-date and detailed information on their condition, as well as a compassionate approach to their care.

Dr Kumar was above and beyond my expectations and past experiences with doctors over the years. He is compassionate, communicative, and understanding. He was very detailed in explaining my condition. He explained why he doesn't think it is one thing. And explained why he feels it is something else so that I can feel confident in my diagnosis. It's been alot of years since I've had a doctor that is this communicative. But that also does not talk to me as if I am beneath them and they know more than I do. I left feeling as though he genuinely wanted to help me and serve me well with his care.
