Dr. Cummins is an excellent doctor. Speaking as an older (mature) patient, her thoroughness in the details of my health set me at ease. Her reputation as the best was repeated over and over to me during any discussion when the subject of my pending surgery was topic of conversation among new acquaintances of the bariatric world. Her abilities to help people in living a better life is certainly appreciated by this patient for sure.

Dr. Cummins worked me in and handled my in office surgical procedure that day. She was very kind and explained everything to me. She really took a lot of time with me and I appreciated that.

I had a gastric bypass in March 2016. Before my surgery I had some questions and concerns and she was the first to set me up with a specialist to give me the answers I needed to proceed. 2 months after surgery,i was brought in due to some bleeding ( nothing to do with the surgery) but Dr Cummins was there everyday checking on me. She and her staff have been wonderful. They are honest and up front. She gave me back my life. I can't say enough good things about her. Very highly recommended!!
Jackson, MS |
She is very kind and a great doctor!!
in Brandon, MS |
I have had a very positive experience with Dr. Erin Cummins. When it became apparent I needed surgery right away, she worked me into her schedule immediately. She was patient and listened to my concerns and explained the procedure thoroughly. My recovery and post-op care has been very smooth. Dr. Cummins and her staff have been quick to respond to my calls and medication needs. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of surgical care.
in Pearl, MS |
Dr Cummins is one of the most experienced Surgeons in Mississippi. She cares about her patients and is truthful with them. I would recommend her to everyone!!
Madison, MS |
I don't recommend Dr. Cummins to anyone. She is rude and unhelpful. I am getting a revision surgery from another provider. PLEASE do not waste your time with Dr. Cummins. She has a great staff, and I feel very sorry for them. I can't imagine how they feel after spending the day with her.

She's great!
