I like Dr. Cushing very much. I saw him years ago for a particular issue and am seeing him again for another. He listens closely, explains things well and appears to be knowledgeable. His staff is nice. I'm sorry he's retiring (happy for him though). The only complaint is how very hard it is to get into him. I mean you have to wait for him to accept you, they have to get your records, etc before committing to seeing him.

Couln't tell me what I had, guessed what it was. Prescribed medication that was too expensive to take. ($1100.00 with insurance) When I called back with even worse symptoms the receptionist acted as a doctor reviewing my file and then told me she would see if the doctor wanted to see me and would call me back. Never called.
