Brandon - "I was referred to Dr. Kumar from my GI doctor because of GERD that had become un treatable with medication. Dr. Kumar was excellent from the very beginning. She explained my options, surgeries, pros and cons, risks, etc on the very first appointment. My surgery and care from her was top notch and I felt like I was very well taken care of and in very good hands. Her follow up care was just as impressive and I feel like I can call the office with any concerns or questions that may arise. The surgery was a God Send, as I have not had any heartburn or GERD since I had it done. Also have been off of all medication since surgery. Thank you Dr. Kumar!"
Michael S. - "Two weeks ago, I required laparoscopic surgery to remove my gallbladder. I am very grateful for the care and skill of Doctor Daveshni Kumar. Dr. Kumar became my surgeon through whatever process HonorHealth uses to distribute its cases. I am fortunate she was called. Dr. Kumar visited me in the hospital the morning before, spent a significant amount of time with me, and thoroughly reviewed my situation. She carefully explained how and what she would be doing, and listened carefully to what I asked. Dr. Kumar accurately described how I would feel once in recovery, and I had no surprises. I hurt much less during the week after than I anticipated. At my follow-up appointment another of her patients said, "She's a great doctor". I absolutely agree."
Anonymous - "Dr. Kumar evaluated my father's inguinal hernia and determined it could be repaired easily with surgery. She was thorough in making sure he was fit for surgery and then did a fine job of performing that surgery. The procedure went exactly as she said it would and his recovery was, surprisingly, pain free and quick. He didn't even need to take any of the pain medication post-surgery. I would recommend Dr. Kumar for surgery and would go to her myself."
Allgood - "Advanced Hernia Surgery done at Honor Heath Hospital in Scottsdale. Dr Kumar is an excellent Doctor and highly proficient in her trade. This is my second side be operated on and Dr Kumar gets my highest recommendation... post op is healing faster than usual and that is because of an excellent surgery. I rarely give recommendations but needed to write this one. Be at peace she will take care of you."
