Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cummins ""A few important experiences early in my life inspired me to become a physician, including seeing our family doctor literally save the life of a young girl, before my eyes. I knew that I would work hard to become the best physician I could be. In medical school, I realized that surgery is the perfect way for me to help others. I enjoy helping others and saving lives. I strive to live by the Golden Rule.  I will treat you as I would like to be treated and also the way I would want my own family to be cared for, on a personal level and in terms of the surgical treatment I provide.  I consider it a real honor to help you in this way and to make a positive difference in your life.""
