My visit was with Dr. Kummer, who then set up a Cardiac Pet/CT Scan and a ECHO Cardiogram. Dr. Kummer is a very good doctor and I trust his decisions. I place my faith and fate into the hands of the Bryan Heart medical team.

I would tell them that he listens to you, answers any questions that you may have, and goes over your medical chart very carefully.

I was taken care of in a timely manner, both in getting a date to see Dr. Kummer and in the followup CT that was ordered. I needed the results two days after the CT so I could proceed with a pre-op physical, and my GP had that information when I arrived. Thank you.

April 07, 2017
Best Cardiologist around. Great Doctor.
April 05, 2017
Dr. Kummer saved my life ten years ago when multiple tests, BP, and cholesterol levels showed no indicators of a cardio condition. Because of my family history of heart disease, however, he kept looking, and after a stress test with nuclear tracer, diagnosed a blockage. The blockage was confirmed and Dr. Whitney put in a stent immediately. The LAD artery was 99% blocked. I'd had no symptoms of a problem, but had had a fleeting, unpainful, minor twinge in my chest a few times a day for a few days. My primary care physician, Dr. Susan Johnson, did an EKG, saw a PCP, sent me to Bryan, and I won the lottery when I became Dr. Kummer's patient. God bless Dr. Johnson for her referral and Dr. Kummer for his persistence.

I only see Dr. Kummer once a year for a checkup since I had a stent put in down in Mexico in 2011. He is super nice and I have complete confidence in him should I need any additional cardiac care.
