Dr. Kumar is a “homegrown Austinite!” In her free time, she enjoys cooking, singing, painting, and spending time with her family. Dr. Kumar says her favorite area locale is Lady Bird Lake, “for kayaking with a lovely view of the Austin skyline.”
I chose Internal Medicine as a profession because I wanted the opportunity to create a holistic, comprehensive, and coordinated care plan for each patient. I also love being able to build long-term relationships with patients and families as we work together toward their health goals. I actively listen to my patients’ concerns and then address them with empathy, as I would treat a family member or friend. Together we can then develop a care plan that is uniquely tailored to their needs.
