So patient and informative during our initial consultation. It is not easy to find a top notch pediatrician matched with a perfect office space and environment but this is it!.

Couldn't be more satisfied. Dr K is very knowledgeable, patiently spends time to hear and explain things to us and helped us out through some of the tougher situations we faced with our daughter's health.

“Best Pediatrician ever!!! I would highly recommend Rise & Shine pediatrics to not only parents of special needs children but any parent as well.”.

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.

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!
