I have never had a more compassionate experience than when I was being treated for breast cancer when I was Dr Kumar's patient! He is a very compassionate doctor, and his staff is also very kind, and caring. He has now added acupuncture and recommending Medical Cannabis to treat pain. I'm very delighted in that his perspective is one that is progressive in the latest treatments available. Kudos to Dr Kumar for helping his patients in Okeechobee.

STEVEN R. PATIERNO, PHD, DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF THE DUKE CANCER INSTITUTE AND PROFESSOR OF MEDICINE AT DUKE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE: 

“The introduction of smokeless cannabis in dosage form will immediately ease human pain and suffering and help to move medical marijuana from the underground economy to the mainstream of the nation’s health-care system.”  
July 7, 2014, “New York Does Medical Marijuana Right,” Wall Street Journal.


Personal Story:

 A close relative of ours who was dying of widespread cancer was offered Medical Marijuana as a last resort to help ease her pain and suffering after much debate with her treating Oncologist in California. Her quality of life improved so dramatically within a few days that she went back to her gardening and cooking that she loved so much. Her quality of life improved and she was able to spend time with her close family without the need to be "zoned out" from pain medications. 

As a Physician obsessed with healing, this experience converted me into an advocate for the use of Medical Marijuana in those patients where traditional medicine ceases to offer a meaningful solution for their pain and suffering.
