Extremely disappointed in his exam as well as his office and lack of professionalism. I went there for an appointment and was told"you owe us a lot of money." I had checked to make certain my insurance was accepted. It was. I had never received an bill from the office and was told my referring doctor must not have listed Dr. Kumar as a referral. I was told I should follow up to make sure his office got paid. All of this was prior to the exam and by a woman wearing a lab coat labeled Miss Kumar. Never did find out who she is or what position she had. My examination consisted of his reading the numbers of my blood work. And that was the "exam" I am seeking another doctor.
I've been with Dr Kumar for several years, but have finally been forced to find another doctor. Kumar himself is a good doctor with respect to communication: he listens to what I have to say, makes suggestions, explains things thoroughly & gives options for treatment. He remembers my history when I come in, or make you feel rushed. I've stayed with him b/c good doctors are hard to find. But there are other issues I simply cannot ignore anymore, b/c they're endangering my health & potentially my life. The staff: These are the rudest, most unprofessional women I've ever met in my life. They act irritated you've called to make an appointment, dismayed when you come in for it, and completely uninterested if you have to ask them something. I have, for the most part, overlooked this, b/c I liked Kumar. I know those girls don't have it easy, and they're probably shuffling people through all day, but a modicum of even feigned courtesy would go a long way. Reliability, Trust, & Doing No Harm: But the biggest issue by far, is that they consistently forget things, like calling in prescriptions I need to stay alive, or faxing paperwork to other specialists. And god forbid you have any type of semi-urgent concern and ask them to get Dr Kumar to call back. I've called 4 times in one day; each time the girl was different, and claimed no previous message was given. I'm still waiting on that one. Prescriptions: I have a pretty regular schedule of medications- sometimes there are new ones, but I always have a base set needed to treat my diabetes (including insulin) and my asthma (including emergency inhalers like Albuteral). I see the doc at least once every 3 months, and each time, he says he'll set me up with 3 months worth of refills. And then, promptly someone forgets. I honestly can't count the number of times I have spent 2 or 3 days calling the pharmacy to find out if my meds were called in, and calling the office to ask them to please do so, b/c they never did after the appointment. A few times, they called them into the wrong pharmacy- I've only ever used one pharmacy in my entire span of time going there, so that was just ridiculous. When I call to remind them, they act like I'm a huge pain. It never is resolved with one call- I'm always told the doctor doesn't have time to even read my message until the end of the day, so not to bother calling back until then- except, by then they close, so I couldn't call if I needed to, and I usually need to, b/c of course, they never get called in. Because my insurance only covers so many check ups, I have to wait the 3 months between appointments. Which means I usually have or am about to run out of my medicine when I get in there again. The last time I went, they couldn't get me in until the day after I ran out of my insulin and other medications, but since the appointment was early, I figured I'd be okay. But as usual, they forget to call them in. I called later in the day when I realized it happened again; they promised he'd call them in. They didn't. Repeated the whole thing the next day- still nothing. The pharmacist, who knows this happens a lot, was able to give me an emergency supply, and tried calling the doctor's office himself. He got the girls, the girls said they'd give Dr kumar the message, and... Nothing. It's now been TWO and a half weeks- and theyâre still not called in. So the straw has broken the camel's back. I'm moving on. It's a shame, b/c I do like Dr. Kumar. I could understand if this happened once or twice, but not every other visit- and CERTAINLY not when the patient, the pharmacist, and the patient again have called multiple times to remind them and been promised it would be done by the end of the day. We're not talking about vitamins here, we're talking about insulin that keeps me from going into a coma, and an inhaler that keeps my lungs open enough to breathe. What's worse is that they've now switched to computers, so they don't even have to call it in, they can simply email it. My wife's doctor emails her prescriptions in while she's still in the room, and it's done by the time we head back home! And so, to my wife's doctor I am now planning to go. Dr Kumar, should you ever chance upon this review: You're a good doctor. But I'm not the only patient of yours who has had this type of experience, so you've got to get new office girls/guys. They're ruining your reputation, they're unprofessional and their bedside manner is appalling. Like Bette Davis, a la âWhat Ever Happened to Baby Jane?â appalling, if you get my drift. And now they're playing with your patient's lives- I left your office without lifesaving medications b/c they were supposed to be called in. I have spent two weeks politely pleading to your office girls to have you call them in, to no avail. At best, this is highly irresponsible and dangerous, at worst, it is fatal. There is no way it's just been so busy it's been forgotten, b/c I've called a dozen times, and so has the pharmacy. It's inexcusable. I imagine it could cost you your license. It has certainly cost you my patronage. I hope you rethink the way things are handled, but until then, I'm done paying for the privileged of being treated poorly by your staff and begging for medications you've prescribed.
I found Dr. Kumar on my insurance website after it was suggested by my personal trainer that I get my thyroid checked by a specialist, not just my family doctor.I found is office staff to be very helpful and polite. He was also a pleasure. Very polite and willing to spend as much time with me as I needed, which explains my long wait in the office. But I will never mind waiting if I know he will never rush me in and out & will spend all the time I need. And I cannot expect him to do that for me if he will not do it for others.
