Specialties

Dr. Vijay Kumar has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • 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.

Four Stars

Dr. Kumar was very nice and actually talked with me about what was bothering me, and not just walk in, and walk out like so many other doctors do.

Nice enough, but doesn't listen to you

I see Dr. Kumar for thyroid issues, and he came highly recommended. It took 14 months of saying my med wasn't helping before I was able to force the issue and get it changed. He has been trying to change it back ever since, even making a note in my chart that he intended to revert. It's a constant battle, and he is not interested in hearing what I have to say about how I'm feeling, or about the research I have done into my condition and/or medications. I have never received test results without calling the office and asking to have them mailed to me. Despite repeated requests, I'm just now getting a simple test run that I've been asking for for nearly 2 years. I'm currently looking for a new doctor who is more interested in me as their patient.
