Meet Sheetal Kumar, MD


Dr-Kumar-PictureDear Patients,

I am pleased to welcome you to Advanced Health Care for Women. It is our mission to address your gynecological health care needs effectively, compassionately, and professionally.

I have more than 15 years of providing gynecological care across all age groups ranging from adolescence to menopause. In addition to routine care, I specialize in urinary incontinence, Da Vinci surgery and menopause treatment.

I believe in a holistic, patient-directed approach to care. I find that preventative care combined with a proactive approach to treatment is a combination that works well for my patients. I like to involve my patient in her medical care by providing her with options for treatment such as medications, surgery, or just expectant management; and then let her choose which works best for her.

I look forward to a lasting relationship with my patients through routine preventative health care visits as well as in times of need. Working together, my patients can achieve their best possible gynecological health.

Sincerely,

Dr. Sheetal Kumar
