As a commercial pilot I went to Doc Cummins to ensure my eyes were clearing up. It doesn't get more critical than the eyes for a pilot. He was extremely thoughtful and deliberate in his evaluate and communicated clearly about his assessment. I felt extremely comfortable and would strongly recommend Doc Cummins, if you want to ensure your eyes are looked after by the best.

I brought my mother to see Dr. Cummins as she experienced a sudden loss of vision in her left eye. Dr. Cummins saw us on a Saturday after hours and because of his prompt treatment and care, my mother has now totally regained the sight in her left eye. I highly recommend Dr. Cummins.

I do NOT recommend him. When it came to giving me my prescription for my glasses, he gave me the completely wrong prescription! He was telling me my eyes got worse, when they got better. I had the glasses made & that's when I realized he screwed up big time. Got an exam from the place I bought glasses & they were wonderful, gave me right script.Called his office to let them know, lady at front desk (his wife) was completely rude! Gave me attitude & basically was like "um what do u want me to do"

For routine exams he was ok. When only 2 months later I had a serious problem on Saturday, and his office and I tried to reach him, he never answered his phone. His assistant dismissed my problem as a "simple irritation." When I saw Dr. Cummins 2 days later, he sent me to a specialist who told me that the damage could have been prevented if it was addressed promptly. His indifference to my problem cost me partial permanent loss of vision. A good doctor is one who responds when you need him!

Outstanding; used him for over ten years. Has MD and Phd. Speaks clearly and directly . Very responsive.

I'm a type one diabetic. The annual eye exam was through and he is a great doctor. They also offer a fixed, reasonable price for annual exams for people who don't have a vision plan that covers the exam. A pleasure!
in Westwood, NJ |
I will never see anyone else except Dr. Cummins! He is beyond an excellent eye doctor. Takes his time for each patient and explains everything carefully and distinctly. I recommend to all my friends and all my family members see him. He is beyond a 5 star rating....he's a 10!
