      I have been a patient of Dr Cunningham since he performed my first surgery in 2010 and he, his practice, bed side manners as well as the office staff have gone completely down hill. In fact I may have been blinded to his practice before and just never knew it as we have not had one successful procedure yet. Now his new practice is all about pushing not insurance covered "stem-cell therapy" down on you and I had this instant weird "I shouldn't be here feeling" while I was there. I hope those of y

      Unfortunately he is one of those doctors who care about the money, not the wellbeing of his patients. Twice he tried to send me to a facility out of network because he felt "more comfortable" (MRI location & physical therapy) ie: kickbacks. I didn't feel I could trust him because having had surgery before, once my MRI came back normal, he was still discussing the option of surgery with me, frustrating! Then to top it all off, he tried charging me for an injection (for MRI) that he never did!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
