Dr. Cuddy operated on my mother in law in August 2017. L4,L5 & S1. She has had the drop foot since the surgery. She cannot walk. It’s been almost two years. Still has drop foot. He seem to care about the incision but the about the problems the surgery caused. It’s has changed her life for the worst.

Dr. Cuddy is very personable. His PA, Chris and Sylvia his nurse are all friendly and very helpful. When I had to call I had a quick response with no problem. Office visits are informative. Dr. Cuddy takes his time to answer questions if you have any. He doesn't rush but he also doesn't sit around and waste his or your time. My surgery went well and I couldn't be happier. I've had NO pain since my surgery in January and am almost finished with PT. Life is great!)

I had a lumbar micro Discectomy after rupturing my disc @ L4 and L5. Dr. Cuddy was able to see me fast. He was very sincere, and very professional. His work was clean, quick and precise. I highly recommend him to anyone dealing with similar back issues.

Dr. Cuddy is well-versed in his specialties and does an excellent job of conveying his findings and diagnosis to his patients. Excellent "bed side manners" as well as being professional, friendly, and helpful. Really nice office environment and office and medical staff.

I had ACDF surgery by Dr. Cuddy. My husband and I felt very comfortable with him and trusted him fully. I have recovered excellently. We find him to be knowledgeable, professional, caring, and he also extended a personal touch of interest by personally calling us. Word of mouth is important and anyone who we've spoken to who knows him has spoken highly of him. His PA, Chris Schaffer is also excellent.

Polite but condescending. Asked him a few clarifying clinical questions that he couldn't answer. Waited over an hour and was told this is normal. I had a bad feeling in my gut so decided not to trust Dr. Cuddy to cut my neck open. I later learned from other's that he is NOT the best. MUSC/Cooper have some great neurosurgeons. His office staff all could use a courtesy class.

He is a top notch surgeon. But he is honest enough to refrain from performing surgery when surgery is not the best answer for your condition. He has performed surgery on me a few times. But only when it will help. And when he does surgery, he has the best recovery experience possible. Even major surgery can involve a next-day hospital discharge.
