Having been in a horrific, life altering car accident 8 years ago, I tried everything to regain a normalcy of life. Years of care via physical therapy, orthopedic doctor, pain doctor, X-Rays, CT scans, MRIs, cortisone injections, boatloads of prescription medication, etc... You get the picture.

When my pain doctor didn't know what to do, he suggested I see a free standing registered dietitian. I did so right away and went gluten free on May 13, 2013. After starting that diet, instead of losing weight, I gained 10 lbs. I was then referred to a holistic nurse practitioner. I worked with her for about 8 months trying to get my under active thyroid normalized. It finally came to the point where she didn't know what else to do for me!

My primary care doctor thought what I was doing was "witch crackery". I knew I needed to find a new primary doctor who would work with me NOT against me. I was referred to Dr Rose Kumar by my allergist. My initial appointment was on April 9, 2014. She took a look at my health history & medications & said "I know exactly what's wrong". This started a great relationship between patient and doctor. She listens to me. When  I've called her saying I think my thyroid is low, she doesn't question me, she orders the labs I need!!!  She responds so promptly to MyChart (electronic medical record secure email system) with answers to my questions & other great ideas. She has been a cheerleader in my life, always  telling me how well I'm doing & that we are almost at point where my thyroid will be normal. I'm pleased to tell you that my thyroid was finally normal on 9/16/14!!!

After 8 years of trying to get my health back, I'm finally feeling normal again!!! I thank God for directing me to Dr Kumar. I will be forever grateful to her for her attention to detail and the love that she poured out on me. I can't encourage you enough to make an appointment to see her. She's been a blessing!!!! -- M.B.


"I've been dealing with health issues for the last 15 years. My other physicians were good, but never got to the core of my health issues. It was recommended to me that I see Dr. Kumar. Since making that change, my core is getting stronger. I have energy to burn and have lost weight (without trying.) You ask how? By eating more vegetables and less carbs. It's a work of art in progress with improving results. So put yourself on the road to a healthier you and make an appointment with Dr. Kumar. Core strong and improving. -- T.L.


I met Dr. Kumar about 2.5 years ago right after having moved to Milwaukee from the NYC area. Based on my European upbringing, I have subscribed to a proactive and natural approach to healthcare (vs disease management) my entire life and continuously seek out the best and brightest leaders in that field. From the first moment I met Dr. Kumar, I instinctively knew that I could entrust myself to her care. For the past 2.5 years, Dr. Kumar and I collaborated in getting to the root cause of my hormone imbalance, which manifested itself in heavy-duty cystic acne along the jawline, “foggy brain,”  weight gain, fatigue, and general malaise (aka feeling “off”). Dr. Kumar’s precise, courageous, and resourceful approach led us to determine my personal (vs the standard “Jane Doe”) ideal progesterone/estrogen ratio. With that newfound knowledge, we were able to – slowly but surely – get my system back into balance. Dr. Kumar engages a multi-faceted approach, including her Executive Stress Reduction Program (which I highly recommend by the way) in order to heal both body and mind. Today, I have my radiant skin and svelte figure back -- plus feel more positive, passionate, high-energy, and empowered than ever.  No small feat given that another expert in NYC had tried – but failed – to achieve the same result. I wish I would have some before & after pictures to showcase the physiological aspects of my recovery – but I purposefully avoided any “before” type evidence given how uncomfortable I used to feel in my own skin. I hope that this testimonial will encourage others to “become real” and take the bull by the horns. Life’s too short for needless suffering and darkness  – and we all deserve to live a healthy and balanced life in order to fulfill our true potential. You are in good hands with Dr. Kumar!   JG


 I love how I feel after I visit your practice.  I walk away with HOPE.  Today it was hope after talking with David Johnson about a homeopathic remedy.  Even more significant was how I felt after my first visit.  I have been fat since pre-school, and of course doctors have talked "at" me about my weight and how it isn't healthy and what I should and should not eat....  But you were the first doctor ever in my 57 years to look me in the eye and say "I can help you."  You described the apparent lack of discipline or will power, given that I know what I should be doing and fail to stick with the plan, and the subsequent self-loathing and said "I can help you."  Your words brought tears to my eyes.  I left with a copy of your book, and I know it is because of your 4-body system model of health that you can make that statement where other doctors cannot.  They do not have a clue how to get inconsistent me to do anything consistently.  HOPE is powerful, and I thank you for that most wonderful gift.   KC


Dr. Kumar and the Ommani staff are best described by truth and true compassion. It is not your ordinary clinic which is a blessing especially Dr. Kumar. Truly believe that through their words but more importantly through their caring actions, we are getting to the root cause of my hormone imbalance. Finally I have hope for improved overall health and a lasting relationship with my compassionate doctor and the Ommani clinic.  Thank you!!

Truly thank you all for help over the past few weeks.   MB


 I had been struggling for quite some time, years, with repeated health problems and infections. Things became so severe that I became bedridden.  I visited numerous doctors with minimal to no improvement. Since meeting Dr. Kumar and applying her recommendations, I am not bed-ridden, I can drive and do daily tasks. Her integrative medical approach has led to a significant improvement in my health.  Dr. Kumar continues to work with me to help me heal my body so I can have a life again. I am thankful for this.”   BF


 I am writing this testimonial so that ALL women can share in my experiences with the Ommani Center and Dr. Kumar. I am in my fifties….

 It is now February of 2013, just a few short months ago, I was tired, so darn tired I didn’t have the energy to do much other than drag myself off to work. I was overweight, unhappy, tired, unmotivated and sad. I felt like there was nothing I could do right, and nothing worked in losing weight. I was in an unhappy marriage and felt like I was stuck forever with my situation. I was desperate!

 Dr. Kumar came recommended to me as someone that could change my life. Boy were they Right!

She setup a plan for me, gave me strength and encouragement and most of all promised me if I followed her advice I would see results.

Giving up some long term habits and foods that I loved were not easy, but I remain determined to change my life.

I am losing weight! WooHoo!!!!

I no longer am experiencing mood swings, hot flashes or night sweats.

I have more energy than I have had in years.

I am happy and feel like trying new things and going out instead of hiding at home.

I felt like I had the strength to leave my bad situation at home and I did it! Moving into a new place and leaving my husband demanded a lot of strength and courage that was always inside me but I didn’t realize I had until I started to feel better. And I know it would not have been possible without the changes and help I’ve received from the Ommani Center, Dr. Kumar and Aimee Brown.

I am happier than I have been in years and have found an inner peace I didn’t know existed.

I found results for the first time in over 8 years struggling with depression.

I am Happy…did I mention that?? :)

 When you tire of your regular doctor prescribing a pill for everything that ails you, do yourself a favor, call the Ommani Center and try their personalized approach to a better you.

Read Dr. Kumar’s book, “Becoming Real”, it will give you lots of insight as to the changes in your body, mind and spirit as you age.

You are Not Alone!

You have Nothing to lose and Everything to Gain!

Take a Chance on you…..you deserve it!

Thank you Ommani Center – you are helping me change my life!!   CC

"I want to thank you for the lovely experience of going to the doctor you made for me today. First, I admired the string of people who helped me register in and took my stats.  I appreciated their kindness and how beautiful each of them are, each in their glowing maturity. And then our lovely conversation that affirmed what I believe and gave me some advice for caring for myself in ways I hadn't thought of. Thanks for all that! What a gift." -- LB
