I enjoy work­ing with chil­dren, birth through young adult­hood, using a fam­i­ly-cen­tered approach to pro­vide the best indi­vid­u­al­ized care for each child. I am pas­sion­ate about patient edu­ca­tion, from guid­ing new par­ents in car­ing for a new­born, encour­ag­ing healthy habits, to empow­er­ing young adults to take own­er­ship of their health.

"I received a good response from the Dr, and staff. I received information from the Dr on the outcome of my daughters rash, and how to treat her at home. I felt very confident about the explanation for visit, after care, treatment of the rash in worsening. I am very glad to say that Dr Kumar, other Dr's, and staff are very thoughtful, and professional with all visits of my kids being seen. I highly recommend them for anyone who is interested in a pediatrician. Thank you to all Duly staff members included on our visit. Theresa Palmer"

"Dr. Kumar is never rushing us or dismissive. She truly is the best pediatrician we have seen! As for Duly, it is so hard to find appointments with her online. I either have to call which takes hours to get through, or I have to check for appointments in the middle of the night. It is inconvenient."
