I really like Dr Kumer and he does answer my questions but when he tells me to take Tylenol for the pain he doesn't say how much or how long I should ice my hip or when to use heat and I forget to ask.

bad. Ever since the merger, there are long wait times to see the doctor, sometimes 30-40 mins. When you get to see the doctor, you feel being rushed by the doctor. Even the CNA checking you out rush through the process. it never used to be the case. I have been a patient at Dreyer for last 8 years and referred many family and friends but i am beginning to think that its time to move on to a different provider. visit used to so much personable but now you wait 25 plus minutes in the waiting room for a 7-10 mins appt with the doctor. Please fix your quality of care and give patients time to talk about their health issues. Hope after the merger company is not heading the direction where they become too big to care about the patients. the only reason I'm investing time in completing this survey is because i have seen a personable side or dreyer and saw a drastic change in service recently, after being with them for 8 years. please fix it if you care about your patients. happy to talk if need be.

I went in for my yearly checkup. that went fine. I mentioned that my ear was clogged. Dr Kumar offered to flush the ear. I agreed. he had the nurse flush my ear for 15-20 mins. the clog was not cleared and actually worse. the nurse left saying she would get the doctor to assist. I then waited for another 20 mins for Dr Kumar to return and not attempt any assistance, just said he will refer me to an ENT. I was frustrated as my ear was now worse off than before and I had been in the office for more than an hour. I asked Dr Kumar to do something to help me. he stuck a long white rod in my ear, which was uncomfortable but did take some of the clog. Dr Kumar then said he should be able to get the rest of the clog out. He then stuck the white pointed rod back in my ear but pushed VERY far and hard. I yelled in pain and he stopped. then my ear began BLEEDING which it has never done before and I was in pain. he then perscribed some antibiotic ear drops and then referred me again to the ENT. I left very frustrated at the time I spent in the office and leaving much worse off than I entered. no apologies were made by Dr Kumar for his MISTAKE on my ear. I will absolutely NEVER use Dr Kumar going forward with my medical needs. a patient should never leave a doctor's office worse than when then came.

Overall, it was an okay appointment. I asked for a check-up that is considered standard, and have not met with this provider before.
