Dr Kumar was exceptional. He noted health problems and set up immediate tests and contacted my cardiologist.

Dr. Kumar listens to all of my concerns. He is a fantastic physician and an asset to Mercy. He takes the time to explain what is going on. I trust him with my healthcare. He is a great communicator and listener. I feel so lucky to have him as my physician.

Dr. Kumar works with my other physicians to make sure there is a continuity of care. I am a complicated patient with several issues that could become life threatening at any time. He does all he can to make sure this doesn't happen.

when visiting dr.kumar he acted impolite [and I] felt like I was in trouble or accused for something I did. when he talked about giving me a new prescription. he says "if I give you this inhaler are you going to use it"? I've got another appointment coming up in a few months if he doesn't change I'm going else wkere.. He needs to learn manners and be more friendly. this is not military drill school or a jail..

Sometimes the care provider was more interested in using the computer rather than talking directly to me.
