Specialties

Dr. Vijay K 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.

Saved my life

Developed the flu and was antibiotics from my GP. Felt worse a couple of days later and was told to continue pills. Called a 2nd and 3rd time days later and was told the same. My fingers were turning blue. I had pneumonia 2 years prior and Dr Kumar was my pulmonologist. Went to his office, was admitted to the hospital. Had a 12 day stay. He explains everything to me, listens to me and I love his assistant at his office as well!

Thank You

I live in Texas but Dr. Kumar cares for my brother in Thousand Oaks CA. so it is very important to get updates about his care. During his recent hospital stay Dr. Kumar took my calls promptly whenever possible and did not make me feel as though I was a bother......of course I probably was. I would recommend him highly because of his compassionate care.

Did a very bad job of suturing my face. Could have been because I was a 64 year old female, because he was in a hurry late into the evening, or because he, for some other reason, wasn't interested in taking the time to do a decent job.
