Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cummins "I believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques--surgery is just one treatment option. I combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.

My purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to me that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is my responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and the multiple choices of treatment. My professional staff and I will also provide you with patient education materials, that give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options."

Patient Comments (1)
in Wauconda, IL |
I had my surgery (shoulder impingement with a possible tear). His staff: excellent His ability to fix my issue: poor It has been over 9 months and I still have the same exact issue before my surgery. You may say, "Well, did you do your PT?" Yes, had PT at Athletico, very competent group. I personally would look elsewhere for someone to fix your shoulder issues. From people I've talked with that have had shoulder issues, I'm THE ONLY ONE that hasn't recovered or has full ROM.
