Specialties

Dr. Ashok Kumar has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I love Doctor Kumar! For 25+ years I was fed mind altering pain meds, bounced back and forth between different doctors due to changes in insurances and lack thereof, spoken to in the most condensending way ever by a PA in Geisinger Hospital because I knew more about my spine than he did and also for refusing mind altering meds. Then I met Doctor Kumar! At my first appointment, I was a a horrible sobbing mess in his office. I felt sorry for him having to deal with me. DOCTOR KUMAR ACTUALLY LISTENED TO ME. DOCTOR KUMAR MADE AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS FIRST SHOT. I AM NO LONGER SEDENTARY!

Dr. Kumar and his staff were extremely caring and professional. Office wait time was a little long, especially being in extreme pain.
