    - in Laguna Niguel, CA |

    I would recommend Dr. Cummings to anyone that requires a Neurologist. Dr. Cummings manner is very friendly, he takes the time to get to know the patient. He is very thorough and not rushed in any way. His explanation of the test results is clear and understandable by all. Dr. Cummings welcomes questions. He really is a nice person that truly wants to help his patients.
