Very friendly and knowledgeable, always puts you at ease.
Mr Sunil Kumar is a very pleasant gentleman. He takes time to explain and reassure. I would encourage you to ask questions as he can offer excellent advice specific to individual needs.
Great service and lovely man
I have now had two operations carried out my Mr Kumar - arthroscopy and, most recently, ACL reconstruction. I cannot fault Mr Kumar. He has been amazing and I am so thankful I am now able to walk again. Each time he made space in his diary to fit me in, with one emergency operation just before the hospital stopped operations due to covid and the second operation just in time so I could recover and walk down the aisle on my wedding day. His support and reassurance at each follow-up consultation has been excellent and gave me confidence any time I had a set-back with recovery. I would recommend him to anyone.
Great explanation's and help
Mr Kumar makes you feel comfortable with his explanation and beside manor he is very patient and is happy to listen to any questions before answering them.
