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.
Examination was thorough and complete. Procedure was scheduled quickly.
love Dr. Kumar and his staff!!!!
The Dr. Was clear and professional with his diagnosis. However I waited more than an hour to see him . This is the second time this has happened and that concerns me.
Dr. Kumar and his staff are excellent.
Dr. Kumar is a excellent surgeon. Has a good sense of humor. Good bedside manner.
Great doctor but when he has a surgery that went over then that means appointments are delayed.
Dr Sanath Kumar is an excellent doctor and a caring person. He takes the trouble to explain his findings and he listens to ones concerns. I would recommend him to anyone.
Excellent physician and office staff
He is worth every minute waiting!! The best dr ever!!! He cares about his patience so wait for him he's worth it, HES THE BEST IN HIS FIELD...
My appt was at 7 p.m. and I did not speak to the physician until 8:45 p.m. I find that wait time unacceptible.
Dr. is fantastic...I feel great...He is the best... Bonnie Hunt
Dr. Kumar is the best, great staff as well!!
Need better waiting area
HE IS LIKE A FRIEND
The provider was very professional. His manner was exceptrional. He was very calming and explained a course of treatment that was easy to understand.
Dr. Kumar is a very nice doctor. He is friendly & efficient.
Dr. Kumar is one of the best doctors I have ever known. He takes time to explain things to you in language you can understand and even drawing pictures. You may have to wait a little while but he is definitely worth it.
Dr. Kumar is absolutely amazing. I'm very happy with the services I received. I was very nervous and he handled it patience and care
I feel Dr. Kumar is excellent. My only concern is the time I have to wait. I schedule my appointments so I do not have to miss work. My last appointment I waited over 1.5 hours to see him. He was still in Orlando Park, IL at the time of my appointment.
He is absolutely wonderful. I was scared to death because I didn't know him or what to expect. After meeting him his bed side manner calmed all my fears. I have already told several people about him. I'm do for a colonoscopy next week and ready.
IF HE IS LATE HE IS SAVING A LIFE, COULD BE YOU; SAVED MINE, THANKS
Dr. Kumar is always wonderful. Well worth the wait. Very professional and wonderful bedside matters. Very polite and great at making you feel comfortable.
Dr. Kumar is outstanding and is definitely worth the wait.
Dr. Kumar is an outstanding physician in every way.
I felt that I had a very good visit and all of my questions were answered.
He's the best!!!!
Love Dr. Kumar....he is competent and has a great bedside manner. My only critique is the wait time to see him. I know he is a busy and popular doctor so that's why the long wait but sometimes I get impatient. However, he addresses my concerns.
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 works too hard and always takes care of all my needs as well as my spouse. Thank you Dr. Kumar and your nurses and administrative staff are all on top of their game.
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 the best!!! I have been a patient of his since Sept 1999.
Dr. Kumar is worth the wait!
I absolutely love Dr. Kumar. He has a great personality and really listens to me. I would totally refer my friends and family to go see him.
I find Dr. Kumar to be professional, knowledgeable and caring. You do have to wait a long time to see him but it is my choice to do so because I feel he is the best.
Dr. Kumar is worth the wait. He takes his time to make sure your needs are met and questions answered. I would highly recommend him!
Our appt was for 8:45-called in at 10:30. Left office at midnight, but we know we're in the best hands ever. Excellent doctor.
Dr. Kumar is a gentleman, a caring professional and a person who is certainly dedicated to the betterment of mankind. He is one of the finest gentlemen that I have ever known.
Best Dr ever. Nurses and receptionist made every visit comforting. Felt like I knew them all my life. Excellent office to walk in!
Dr Kumar took me into his private office and discussed my medical situation. I have never had that happen with any other doctor in my life. I would definitely recommend dr. Kumar to my friends and family.
Dr. Kumar is a great doctor. He takes the time with you and is very thorough. Sometimes the wait is a little long but I think it's because he takes the time with each of his patients so it is well worth the wait!
Excellent care. Highly recommended.
Dr. Kumar is a wonderful doctor and I have recommended him to all my friends. I trust him with my life.
Doctor Kumar was good in communicating the new health laws and his plan of action once all information from was sent to him from me and other providers. He spent the time to make sure I understood and was satisfied. He is a doctor I would recomend.
Dr. Sanath Kumar is one of the best doctors I have ever had in my life. At 66 years of age this is quite a declaration. He is caring and confident. His professionalism and compassion put me at ease immediately. I recommend him highly.
I think Dr. Kumar is an excellent doctor and I would recommend him to anyone.
Doctor Kumar is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. His concern for my issues and his compassion have no limits. He is a Godsend and I am lucky to have him as my doctor.
Great bedside manner very straight forward alot humility for a dcotor
He is a great doctor, but runs behind schedule frequently. The trade off though is that he spends quality time with each patient.
Dr. Kumar has always been one of the finest clinitians by whom I've been treated. But he is seldom on time with his appointments. He is AWAYS VERY late.
The entire staff at Dr. Kumar's was amazing. They were friendly and considerate. And Dr. Kumar himself was extremely professional and friendly and was willing to take the time to listen to me and gave me great feedback. Thank you Team Kumar!
Dr. Kumar is the best, May God Bless Him!
I cannot get into my health records on my e-mail, even though I entered the pin number sent from doctor, that was sent to me on my home phone.
Dr. Kumar and his entire staff were all outstanding. The explanation provided by Dr. Kumar regarding my visit was exceptionally clear and very well understood. He is an exceptional physician who obviously has his patients best interest at first hand.
Very good Dr. Nursing staff was amazing and very helpful, and insightful. Made my visit comfortable and easy going
Dr. Kumar is an exceptional physician, knowledgeable, expert in his specialty. His bedside manner is beyond professional and considerate - - - he remembers his patients and often asks about other family members as well. He is the best.
Dr. Kumar is a wonderful doctor. He has performed two surgeries and another one to come on me. He is very truthful when explaining the procedure and what it involves. He checks everything out to make sure the surgery is necessary before performing it.
Dr. Kumar is an excellent doctor. His bedside manner is gentle, caring and informative. He is the best on all counts.
i have been seeing dr. kumar for many years. he is an excellent doctor and a skilled surgeon. he is very compassionate and caring. it would be hard to find a better doctor!
Dr. Kumar is great.. answered all question and gave explanations that we could understand. He tells like it is..
Could not be more pleased with the Dr. Kumar as well as his staff.
This my first appointment with Dr. Kumar and I would refer him to anyone. Having a problem like this, was very embarrassing, but Dr. put my mind at ease. He saw I was in a lot of pain and he scheduled me for surgery immediately. Thanks Doc.
Found the doctor to be very open to communicating about my issue, as well as other issues I am dealing with.
love Dr. Kumar! He is personable, answers questions and concerns, has a calm demeanor. Overall, trust him implicitly.
I've been a patient for almost almost 30 yrs. , my family members also see Dr. Kumar
Dr. Kumar is a great doctor and surgeon and I have a lot of faith in him. I am very relaxed knowing he is performing my surgeries.
Dr. Sanath Kumar is an excellent physician and surgeon.
I've said it before and I will say it again. Without a doubt, the best doctor out there!
This was my 2nd surgery done by dr kumar ,iam very satified with both outcomes .
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.
Excellent, caring and informative.
I cannot say enough about this wonderful Physician. The waiting time is long but worth it. I was a reason he was late when I got my colon resection for colon cancer. He is honestly a physician that is compasionate and caring. I would HIGHLY recommend him!
Although waiting times to see Dr. Kumar during office hours may be longer than one's accustomed to, the wait is always well worth the time. The doctor is detained at the hospital due to long surgeries. Dr. Kumar is an extremely good surgeon & friendly.
professional well educated along with a caring attitude is a winner in my book thanks again Dr. for being there late nights to accommodate us when we need you :-)
Love Doctor Kumar and his staff. He spends time with his patients and he cares. He came very highly recomended to me by two family members! I trust him completely!
Friendly Doctor and staff, answered all questions and explained all options
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.
I did have to wait quite a while but he was the nicest doctor I have ever visited. He seems to be very thorough and had a lovely staff. Everyone was very kind. I would highly recommend Dr Kumar.
The wait time seems long, but they fit me in to a very booked office time.
As always, Dr. Kumar and his staff provide outstanding medical care. They exhibit the highest professional standards with a unique blend of compassion and humor. I and my family have had the fortune of being his patient for over 10 years.
Dr. Kumar was very nice and took the time to explain things. His office waiting room is a little cramped so when you get stuck waiting for a long time it is uncomfortable.
Very nice man. Very professional. A good listener. Thorough in his examination and I feel confident and comfortable with him as my doctor.
Dr. Kumar is a not only a great doctor but a great humanitarian. His entire focus is helping heal people....and he gives God the credit. I cannot say enough good things about him.
Very well on point and gets what needs done done
friendly doctor and staff :)
Very good doctor. Knows his stuff!
Dr. Kumar provided an excellent response to my medical concern. He conducted a thorough examination and explained clearly his diagnosis. His manner displays that he is concerned about the welfare of the patient. The Office Staff was friendly and helpfu
I usually don't write reviews for doctors, especially such a sensitive area. :) I would highly recommend Dr. Kumar to anyone who has doubts about seeing a specialist. He really is great and I will tell my friends to call him If they have concerns.
he is the best
The best doctor I gave ever seen my whole life. Explains the patient everything.
Your the BEST, Thank you so much for helping me for all these years, Glenn Peters
I had a routine colonoscopy in April 2011 by Dr. Kumar. He found a cancerous tumor on my rectum, and with his assistance, got me in immediate contact with a radiation doctor and an oncologist. After their treatment, Dr. Kumar performed successful surgery on me in July 2011 and removed the tumor, and I have been cancer free ever since. The surgery was major, and he made the process as gentle as possible. His kindness and concern during the entire process was very comforting. He went out of his way to assit me in all aspects of the treatment and his office staff was equally kind and helpful. He deserves a superhero label of "Never fear, Kumar is here!" Thank You Doctor
I cannot express enough the love and respect I have for this man. He not only is in my opinion the BEST surgeon he is one of the most wonderful people I have ever met in my life. I commented on the wait time is excellent even though we have waited a very long time. We have been to his office at 11:00 pm and I would wait as long as it take for this wonderful caring Dr. My husband was a reason Dr Kumar was 4 hour late for his office appointments. He did a colonrecection for stage 3 colon cancer and he ran into some kind of problem. He took whatever time to make sure he did the best job possible for my husband. Dr Kumar treats each patient like they are his only patient. I wish everyone who has the diagnosis of cancer, has the honor of having a man like Dr Kumar tell them. The way he told us was exceptional. I can't explain it in words. He is the most caring, considerate, insightfull man I have ever met. I trust this man with my life. He also saved my Father's life 20 years ago from diverticulitis. If anyone has any questions about this man, please call me. This man made the Worst day of our lives somehow be one of the best days. Things like this happen for a reason and I believe our path with Dr Kumar has made me a better person no matter what the future holds for my husband. It's been a year and Dr Kumar just did his colonoscopy today and all is good! I thank God for Dr Kumar! Carol Pickrum 708-288-1849 3/11/11
he could not diagnois the problem. another doctor got to the problem in only one visit and took care of it.kumar wasted alot of my time and money on unessasry test and procedures and still did not know what was wrong.everytime i had an appointment i had to wait in the waiting room for hours!!!!!
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.
AFTER 4 VISITS, ALL WITH PRESCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS, THE AVERAGE WAIT TIME WAS ABOUT 2.5 HOURS, THE LAST BEING 3 HOURS AND COUNTING, AT WHICH TIME I LEFT WITHOUT BEING TREATED. I KNOW ALL SUCCESSFUL DOCTORS ARE BUSY AND I KNOW TO EXPECT DELAYS, BUT THIS DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT PROCESS IS THE WORST I'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED.
