During January 2013, I experienced such severe back pain I could barely walk, climb stairs or lie down flat. I needed help to dress.
I began treatment for severe sciatica pain with Dr. Kumar February 1, 2013. He performed a thorough examination, including a review of x-rays and administration of a NSC test to measure the nerve response in my legs. He sent me for an MRI for further diagnosis. I had age related degenerative disc disease: 3 bulging discs and one herniated disc.
He recommended a series of 3 cortisone injections, physical therapy (PT) treatment, percocet for pain, and neurontin to help calm the nerve tingling in my leg. Each injection helped ease the pain. After the 3rd injection in early April and subsequent PT visits, I improved greatly. By May I finished my twice a week PT visits and continued daily exercises at home, decreasing the pain medication. Slight pain lingered until July, but with the exercises I learned at PT I was able to work through them.
Dr. Kumar monitored my progress throughout my treatment, adjusting my medications as necessary. During office visits he took the time to explain the things I needed to do for recovery, and the time it would take to accomplish healing due to such a severe condition.
His care, compassion, and concern for my recovery during my long process is appreciated.

I just want to say thank you for listening to me and helping me to get better. You have the best bed side manner and really care about how I feel.
I ve been a patient of Dr. Kumar's for several months and I could not speak any more highly of him. My journey of many unsuccessful treatments over the course of years for chronic pain issues left me feeling hopeless. When I first began with Dr. Kumar, my expectation was just " more of the same" I couldn't have been more wrong. Dr. Kumar's bedside manner is outstanding. He's a kind and caring human being ... and clearly has picked the right profession. He listens to my concerns and seems to always think outside the box to arrive at a solution. If you can relate to anything I've written, please go see Dr. Kumar.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my deep sense of gratitude to Dr. Ajay Kumar for his extensive help in pain management . At the age of 55, after numerous surgeries due to a number of auto accidents and sports injuries I have suffered through years of chronic and debilitating physical pain. I feel fortunate to have met Dr. Kumar . He has helped me regain an acceptable degree of functionality and management of the pain.
I have seen other pain management physicians before but I am very pleased with the success I am achieving Dr. Kumar. His compassion and understanding make him an outstanding physician. He has taken great care in helping improve the quality of my life and for that I must remain forever grateful.
I would also like to thank his staff. They are always pleasant and helpful. Waiting times have always been very reasonable.
