Biography

Dennis Kumral, MD, is a gastroenterologist whose focus is caring for patients with luminal gastrointestinal disorders affecting all parts of the intestine, from the esophagus to the colon. He specializes in endoscopic procedures, including esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) for the diagnosis and treatment of upper GI tract issues, as well as colonoscopy for the diagnosis of lower GI problems and colon cancer screening. Kumral has a particular interest in celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's and ulcerative colitis), microscopic colitis and C. difficile colitis.

Originally from New Jersey, Kumral received his medical degree from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He then moved to Charlottesville, where he completed an internal medicine residency at UVA prior to pursuing a gastroenterology fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University. Kumral returned to Charlottesville to join the UVA gastroenterology faculty in 2019.

In his free time, Kumral enjoys spending time with his wife, Abby, a fellow UVA physician, as well as traveling and hiking locally and in U.S. national parks.
