My experience with Dr. Cummings has been fantastic. He’s an excellent doctor, for one, and for two, he’s also extremely nice! He’s been SO good to me over the years. Cheers to you, Dr. Cummings, thanks for being you, and hopefully some day we’ll get to chat together as doctors!

He was a bit short with us the first visit. His diagnosis was accurate and the treatment worked. Since that first visit it has been 10+ years. We see him yearly and I am glad we stayed under his care. His demeanor improved greatly after our first visit. He is a pleasure to see now.

Dr. Cummings gave me my life back! My slow decline had me looking at mobility carts just to get around, although the diagnosis of Parkinson's was difficult to take, Dr. Cummings' compassionate, excellent diagnostic skills and bed side demeanor allowed me to move on, get treated and reclaim my busy, fun, active life! I'm headed to Australia this year to do some rustic camping on a remote island on the Great Barrier Reef! Last year my Parkenson's prevented me from even swimming!
