Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cunningham III "Hearing is one of the crucial senses which allows us to interact with the world. Disorders affecting the ability to hear can greatly impact our day to day quality of life. I treat a wide range of conditions from tumors affecting the hearing and balance nerves to chronic infections of the ear. Every patient presents with a unique problem and different needs. My approach is to listen to the patient and treat their problem with care and respect."

Patient Comments (1)
in Henderson, NC |
because I was a difficult patient and rude, and he was very understanding to my condition and the pain I was feeling with the frustration it took to finally find out what was going on with me, only he was the last doctor on the list of doctors I had seen, who finally could help me after over 6 months of waiting and no one knowing what to do about my situation or what was causing it.
