Dr Kumar is always pleasant and informative. However, his receptionist is not! She is rude! The night I came Dr 1 hr late and she told patients don't stay if you don't want to, you should always call b4 an appt. Really? that's why we make them!!!

Dr. S. Kumar is a wonderful surgeon and more importantly a wonderful person. You may wait a bit to see him on appointment days but he will spend equally as much time as you need to during your office visit. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kumar deals in a very sensitive part of the medical field. It isn't always easy to see a doctor who addresses the problems he does. I have always felt comfortable with him and he has always been able to put me at ease with his procedures.

The purpose of my visit was briefly discussed and I was told it was a cosmetic issue even though I informed him of a developing pain. He then went on to suggest a colonoscopy for preventative maintenance and dismissed my initial reason for being there.

Dr. Kumar and his staff at the Saint Anthony facility are excellent. The only concern I have is the long wait to see the doctor. He is never on time for any appointment I have ever had. Patients usually have to wait over an hour before he even arrives.

Dr Kumar is skilled and I have gone to him for years. The waiting time is unconscionable due, I think, to overbooking and his too busy schedule. This wait time must be cut down because it punishes patients and cuts down on the qualaity of care given.

Most compassionate doctor and staff ever. show details Most compassionate doctor and staff ever.
by Janet on Feb 21st, 2014

I was one of those people who had a bad experience years ago with doctors so avoided them at all costs. Dr. Kumar has changed my opinion and is the most caring, compassionate doctor I ever met. His staff is unbelievable too. I feel blessed that I have found a doctor and staff that make me feel at ease,and that they truly care about me as a patient. In the world we live in it's a rarity. I am telling all my friends if they have any "issues" or need a colonoscopy to please call Dr. Kumar. I really can't praise him or his staff enough. Blessings to all of them.

Dr. Kumar was called in at the last minute to take out my gallbladder. He was called at 11am by a mutual friend and by 3:30PM he was giving me a consult and at 5:30pm he had me in surgery taking out my gallbladder. If waiting time in his office is a little longer, I now have first hand understanding as to why. Dr. Kumar cares to take his time with each patient and is an excellent surgeon. Fast is not always better. He's worth the office visit wait.
