How likely are you to recommend Dr. Kumar?
Dr. Kumar was my anesthesiologist for two surgeries at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). For the first one, HSS assigned Dr. Kumar to my surgery; for the second, I asked for Dr. Kumar to be my anesthesiologist again and HSS granted my request. After discussing my preferences, Dr. Kumar was able to grant my request to remain ‘wide awake’ – absolutely no sedation – for both surgeries. For each surgery, Dr. Kumar determined and administered the appropriate nerve blocks, which enabled me to not receive any level of sedation. As such, I can highly recommend Dr. Kumar’s skill as a anesthesiologist including HER ability to work with me [the patient] to create an anesthesia plan that provides a safe surgery while accommodating my preferences as best as possible. In my case, Dr. Kumar was able to provide me with exactly what I wanted – just nerve blocks. Aside from being a highly skilled anesthesiologist, Dr. Kumar has a calming, friendly, and reassuring manner. Thank you so much
