    Kumar, Dr. Shashi A.
    He has an excellent staff. It's a small office so you get lots of personal attention. When he comes into the room, he has actually read the charts before he get there, so, he knows what your problem is. He asks a lot of questions that seemingly are not related to what you think your problem is, but in fact, they are. I am under medication and my problem seems to be under control all the time.

    Kumar, Dr. Shashi A.
    He's one of the few allergists around in town. As a matter of location, I had been to another allergist previously, and she had left the area. I thought I was getting along until I found out I was having more sinus infections, allergy issues, and needed to see an allergist again. I have an allergy to mold. It's really hard to get over. I was really pleased to find out the other allergies I had are okay now. So, we're just still fighting the mold, it's a tough one, but, we're improving. I will continue to go there if needed.

    Went in for allergy testing due to respiratory problems. Due to my anxiety about the test, Dr. Kumar recommended blood testing. Returned later wanting to skin test for seafood due to getting sick from shrimp years earlier. He recommended blood test just in case. Results were negative and I had the skin and oral challenge tests for shrimp with no reaction. Only problem was that the office had made a typo when entering my insurance number in their system and it took a few conversations to get it sorted out. Great staff. Highly recommended.

    Progressive Family Medicine
    I have an appointment today as a follow-up on my allergies. I have asthma and I have problems breathing due to some allergies. I have been taking allergy drops for the last three months and they have done wonders for my breathing. They are very concerned about getting people well and getting them to develop a better, healthier lifestyle. They also recommended that I go on a gluten-free diet. I could tell a difference in a week. I told my family doctor that I was doing this and that it had helped me not only in my breathing but also with my stomach problems. I am truly impressed with their treatments and their concern for the patient. They are a little expensive but when you are talking about your health and your quality of life, I am willing to pay a little more to feel better.

    Kumar, Dr. Shashi A.
    Dr. Kumar's nurse, Amanda, is an asset to his office. She's very professional, very calming and reassuring with a friendly manner as I went thru all the routine testing needed to perform my overall assessment. Dr. Kumar himself actually performed a physical assessment himself. Listened to my heart, lungs, checked my eyes, ears, nose, and throat. Palpated my lymph nodes, etc. He took his time and listened to my plight as I described in lengthy detail the problems I've been having since relocating to North Alabama. I am a registered nurse and my husband is a Cardiologist, so I know what a "true assessment" is. Afterwards, his nurse Amanda came in to do my skin testing, which if you don't know already, takes a little while to do. Upon waiting the required amount of time, she recorded the results, Dr. Kumar came in, sat down with a piece of paper with a cell diagram, and explained at length how my body was treating allergens as foreign and the response that it sets off, histamine release, etc, etc. He went over everything to make sure I understood how and why my body is reacting the way it does. He didn't know that I'm a nurse, as I listed my job as "Homemaker". I'd recommend him to anyone that I know, he was quite thorough. I believe that with his help, maybe I can get everything under control. I've been recommended to begin allergy shots, and I will start soon. I was also prescribed a daily regimen of a couple of OTC meds, and a couple of prescription meds. So far, so good. Now awaiting my 2 week return visit for follow up.

    It went well. It was a long visit as is the nature of allergy tests but we received the results we were looking for. Dr. Allamneni is a pleasant physician. At times it can be challenging to understand him but his personality makes up for that. He seems intelligent and was very patient in addressing our concerns. He was the doctor I took my son, while he was still an infant, to in order to discover the cause of a strange facial rash. Dr. Allamneni ran some tests back then and discovered a peanut allergy. Ever since, anytime our family has any allergy concerns or questions we always see this doctor.

    O'Neill, Dr. Patrick J
    I like that he is very thorough and if he thinks there are allergies he will take an x-ray right there in his office.  He is good at finding another doctor for me if he can.

    I am very happy with Dr. Kumar. I get in generally within a week of calling, which is fine. They have streamlined the shot-getting process, and are open till 6:30 two days a week, which makes the process less - painful. They are a member of my health network, so my insurance covers everything. They handle all the billing, which is a godsend. I've easily incurred a couple thousand dollars' worth of services in a few weeks - and my insurance company has a reputation of being difficult to deal with. The staff - are average. The older folks seem competent; the younger ones seem very much like they're just walking through a procedure without paying too much attention to what's going on. Every time I go for a shot, I get asked the same questions, give the same (unexpected to them) answers, and they have to go talk to the doctor. I sure all this information is all in my chart, but they apparently don't read it - or write it down. One telling example: During the RUSH treatment, I read over the record they were filling out, and found an error in it. They'd just assumed I'd taken the 'usual' meds at the 'usual' dosages, and checked them off - without checking with me or the doctor. This was wrong. After they checked with the doctor he confimed my account of the actual meds, and they updated the chart. This was not necessarily alarming, but it certainly didn't give me a comfy feeling. (I've had similar experiences - and worse - at other doctors, so this isn't that unusual. You need to pay attention to what everyone is doing when it comes to your health). This is why I gave them a B instead of an A in communication. I can't rate effectiveness of treatment yet - too soon. Also, I am a 'difficult case', in that standard treatments tend to not work on me, so I'm reluctant to rate the treatment. However, I am fairly knowledgable about asthma/allergy treatments, and cannot fault Dr. Kumar's regimen.

    Dr. Shashi A. Kumar takes his time answering our questions. His office is really good. He is really good with kids. I will continue to use him.
