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.

Dr. Cullen is an incredible Doctor. I have had a problem for years and all the specialists I had seen previously couldn't find what was wrong. She is kind, patient, diligent, and brilliant. She took all the steps necessary to solve this problem for me and I am feeling so much better. I am very grateful and I definitely recommend her.

Outstanding doctor. My husband came in with a serious problem and she went above and beyond getting him the help he needed. And very quickly! Straightforward and no nonsense. Absolutely excellent. I had never met her before but felt reassured she would be able to help. Highly recommend. If you have a problem this is the doctor you want. Staff was excellent!

I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Cullen or her office staff. I had never seen her before, and when my primary doctor recommended her, I needed an urgent appointment, which I got. My consultation with Dr. Cullen was so re-assuring and calming. She explained everything so clearly. On the day of the procedure, both she, and Helen, the nurse assigned to me, and the anesthesiologist were just great. They made the entire experience so much easier for me to deal with.

Dr. Cullen has been treating me for more than twenty years. She is an exacting physician in every way. Thorough, knowlegable and professional with the abilty to establish a trusting rapport with her patient. Her procedures are carried out in a superior manner with excellent results as long as she has been treating me, and I thank her for that.

I was very pleased recently after a routine colonoscopy. Dr Cullen found something suspicious and had it checked by two different radiologists...fortunately, it was nothing serious but unappreciated her concern and thoroughness ..

Dr Cullen made me feel very comfortable right from the start. The facility was clean and updated from the reception area to the waiting rooms to the room for the procedure. Staff was professional, friendly and caring. Anesthesiologist was thorough as well.

Dr. Cullen was wonderful from the moment I met her. She explained the purpose of my procedure and how a simple preventative test can help to ward off the possibility of a much larger future problem. Dr. Cullen was also kind and informative at the beginning and end of the procedure, as was the entire staff at Bergen Medical Associates. I would highly recommend her as a doctor.

Dr. Cullen listens, explains, is experienced, knowledgeable and really nice! In addition, the office is so well organized. I was impressed with not only the courtesy of the staff, but how smoothly I transitioned through the process of front desk, registering, seeing the doctor, getting prescriptions, having procedures explained and finally lab work. And I received a phone call from the doctor with my lab results very quickly. This means a lot to people coming in who are not feeling well. thanks!
