Specialties

Dr. Jay P Kumar has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I have never had such a remarkable experience with any kind of Doctor. Both my husband and myself had sleep studies done within a couple months of each other. From Dr. Kumar, to the sleep technician, to the front desk, all are amazing. My husbands turned out to be severe apnea, and they managed to get his sleep study approved by insurance, booked for the study, turned over to The cpap supply company in record time. That took allot of time, they were happy to do it. Amazing !!

Arrogant and rude!

After driving 30 minutes to my appointment I waited for 1 hour an 50 minutes before I was seen. He started to go over my test results and said smoking was the problem. I knew that was the case and was hoping he could recommend the best way to help me quit since I have tried just about everything available. I replied that "In all honesty, I don't know if I can quit." Instead of discussing it with me he VERY RUDELY snapped "Why are you wasting my time?!" Wow! keep in mind he just wasted over 2 hours of my time. When I asked at the front desk if the wait time was always this long I was told "pretty much, yea." Then I get a letter from him terminating his medical treatment for me immediately. He didn't need to send that since I wouldn't go back to him anyway. As far as I'm concerned I terminated him and his so called "service". I think he missed the classes in med school that talked about patient relationships. This guy is one of the most arrogant doctors I have ever run into.

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Kumar. My husband was being treated by another doctor for COPD and he was in decline. That dr. suggested Hospice. After 14 stays in the hospital in 5 months, it was time to see someone else. Went to Dr. Kumar, he changed medication and in 11 months my husband has only been in hospital 2 times. Dr. Kumar is a life saver. He is a caring dr. that takes time with his patients.
