Dr. Kumari is absolutely wonderful. She is that rare MD who actually takes the time to listen, and will address your concerns be it evenings, weekends, or holidays. Recommend her without reservation!

I'd definitely recommend this doctor for your children. You will get heard, get advice and will not go through a cookie-cutter process like I have seen with some of my other colleagues and their peds.

Dr Kumari is very good doctor and takes a lot of patience to listen and understand you. She is the kind of doctor I have been waiting to have for my kids.
Dr. Kumari is a great pediatrician and such a pleasure to talk to. She is not one of those 60 seconds or less pediatricians that I have been to in the past.

Finally a great pediatrician that listens to my children and understand a child with disabilities!

Dr Kumari is a very good doctor and spends time with patient to further know more about the child. I would refer her to my friends and family with no hesitation!!
Very hard to find a physician that takes the time to actually listen to your concerns and needs, but even more so she (and office staff) takes the time to listen to our children (and really listen) and even respond.
Very nice & wonderful Dr. I am thankful I get explained exactly what my child has & what I should do so she can get better. Thanks for all your help Dr. K. Me & my daughters father are pleased with you!
