About Dr. Akash Kumar M.D.

Dr. Kumar M.D. engages patients in a considered approach involving assessing genetic, neurobiological, social, and psychological factors. He utilizes medications, psychotherapy, genetic testing, medical workups, neurological exams, nutritional analysis, and lifestyle modifications to help patients achieve their stated goals.

Dr. Kumar is a medical doctor who specializes in psychiatry. He is board certified by the American Academy of Psychiatry and Neurology, and has an undergraduate degree in Human Physiology. He has a passion for helping people reach their potential. Throughout his career he has continued to expand his clinical repertoire by working in many different settings including: volunteering at a free clinic providing care to the homeless, working in the forensic settings working with prisoners, and in the general community both inpatient and outpatient settings. He’s worked deeply with perpetrators- and victims- of physical and sexual abuse.

Along with guest teaching undergraduates and residents at multiple universities, he has been a guest speaker at the University of Michigan Forensic Center, Henry Ford Hospital System, as well as to physicians in the Department of Corrections. Talks have ranged from the science of happiness to the management of therapist emotions when working with sociopaths. He has also worked, and taught, in medical hospitals, consulting with internists and other medical specialists on cases where psychiatric and medical considerations overlap.

Other areas of professional interest have been driven by interactions with patients. These areas have included compassion, meditation, evolutionary psychiatry, ADHD, genetic testing, forensics, and evidence based treatments (both mainstream and cutting edge).
