We at GFMG want to inform our established as well as any new patients we will continue to use Telehealth appointments but will also open the practice to see patients on 05-04-2020. We take utmost care to follow CDC guidelines and protocols to ensure the safety of the patient and the staff. We screen all patients to make sure it is appropriate to be coming in to the office. Once the "Shelter in Place" has been lifted and you are not comfortable coming in, we want to remind you we are continuing with Telehealth (phone, video consults). Our office hours have remained the same. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call the office.

Office is very organized, neat, clean and well staffed. Dr. Kumar is most attentive, takes her time to listen to your concerns, always very courteous and friendly. I came to this area knowing no one and she was referred to me by another doctor. She has proven time and again to be a knowledgeable professional that puts the patient first.
