Doctor Kummer provided keen insight into a medical condition I faced. We discussed different surgical procedures that might be considered to address the worst to the best cases and their risks. She was able to recommend surgeons who were experts in the field across America. Dr. Kummer will advise me for the remainder of my life as I navigate the healthcare world of technology, pharmaceuticals and physician care. I urge you to talk with Dr. Kummer and learn what I learned, she is thorough, wise, capable and a GREAT professional.
