Dr. Cullen is 5 Stars -She gets to know her patients and remembers them. -You can tell she has your best interest in heart, because she takes the time to really explain everything as many times as necessary. -She has alot of experience with IBD patients and not only finally diagnosed me, but provided the necessary biologic to get me into remission. (I had to take two before finding the right one). -Dr. Cullen is up with the latest technologies and replies back on the online portal usually in less then 24hrs. It saves so much time, not having to call in. -I wish my primary care doctor was as good as Dr. Cullen.

Dr. Cullen performed my last 2 colonoscopies, the most recent was in April. She is a very attentive physician that listens to your concerns. Because my visit could have ended up with a much worse result she was very good at calming my nerves while still being very matter-of-fact. I would highly recommend her.

I've been a patient of Dr. Cullen's for many years. She diagnosed my colitis after visits to other doctors with no avail. She's easy to talk to and with her expertise, I feel like I have my colitis under control.

My husband and I would definitely recommend Dr. Cullen. She has been our Gastro Dr. for many years. Whenever we have an appointment with her she exhibits interest in what we say and she responds to our concerns and goes out of her way to help us. We trust her diagnostic ability and we have always been satisfied. She gives us all the time we need. She has performed procedures on us and successfully diagnosed our problems.

Worst doctor in NJ with bad bedside manner. Gave her some blood tests from my primary & she didn't want to look at them & said I only had stress. Is she a psychiatrist or a GI doctor? She did not want to treat me because I already had tests done that she would of ordered. I didn't leave her any way to make money through endoscopy's.

Dr. Cullen has been a fantastic doctor and I have been seeing her for many years now. After bouncing around to different doctors (some because of insurance, some because they weren't a match), Dr. Cullen is someone I fully trust and feel comfortable with. She has helped me get my ulcerative colitis under control and always takes the time to fully explain my treatment options or answer my questions. She has also helped ease my mind when certain treatments seemed daunting. Even though I've moved about 45 min away from her office, I still choose to see her because I know she'll give me the time and understanding to make informed decisions about my health.

I've suffered from IBS and acid reflux for many years, have seen many doctors, who have prescribed many medications, to no avail. Dr. Cullen spent quality time with me, asked me many questions, explained a lot about my conditions, cut my medications, told me how to eat better (including giving me an invaluable fiber chart), and my health has greatly improved. She's knowledgeable, communicative, and very accessible.
