Dr. Amita Kumar is a Canadian-born physician who practices preventive medicine in a primary care setting. She earned her internal medicine degree in Dublin, Ireland, and has been practicing medicine in San Antonio for 5 years.
In primary care, there is a large population of patients who need psychiatric and psychological services without many resources, and thus Amita has learned to help her patients with her training in medicine but also realizes that it often needs a multi-factorial approach.
In her spare time, Amita enjoys spending time with family and traveling. She strives for a balance of healthy eating, exercise, and fun in her life. Her newest interest has been mindful meditation as she continues to aim for a well balanced physical and mental well being.
