As always Dr Kumar is always professional and friendly towards both myself and my husband. We have been having consultations with Dr Kumar for some years now and have a very pleasant consultation with him. No doubt we will be seeing him for many years to come and we are very happy about that.

Everything on the day was fine - my only comment is that the report letter was dated 2 May and I received mine today - 14 days later so where has it been sitting?

Dr Jesse Kumar

Thank you for your comments. All of our patients have full access to clinic letters and notes through our secure electronic medical records. Some delays do occur where results are awaited or due to postal delays/annual leave.

Dr Kumar is very professional and thorough. Gave me great reassurance that the correct tests and follow ups were being pursued. Also I found Dr Kumar and his secretary were willing to assist me via email and outside scheduled appointments which again was very helpful and reassuring for me. I would thoroughly recommend Dr Kumar.

Very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Takes the time to explain treatment options and test results properly. Explained likely prognosis and has followed up by monitoring progress and varying dosages as needed. Highly recommended.
