I would highly recommend Dr. Cunningham. It is an excellent surgeon and takes time to explain everything in detailed and in layman terms, so it's easy to understand. Dr. Cunningham worked miracles when my brother fell off a metal roof and broke his back.

Dr. Cunningham keeps telling me that he wants my son back at the beginning of the month but his office people keep giving us an appointment for the end of the month. Dr. Cunningham and the nurses are wonderful but his front office staff is not so good.
