I've been going to Dr. Cush for twelve years (at least). I had three prior RA docs which I will NEVER refer people. I wouldn't change RA doctors for ANY reason. He is clear in his communication, he doesn't mince words, he listens and explains his thought process, and gives you the opportunity to say "no, I don't want to do XXXXX".

I had one visit and won't be returning. I have never been treated so poorly by a physician in my life. Granted, I did not have old medical records with me because I couldn't get them in time. But, every time I tried to give my history, this arrogant man interrupted, took items out of context and devised a totally new diagnosis for me after having numerous rheumatologists in the past 20 years working to find the correct diagnosis and control my disease. He obviously has issues to address.

I only saw Dr. Cush twice but after the second time I decided he wasn't the right doctor for me. I didn't feel like he really listened to my concerns and his personality is a cross between blunt/abrasive. I'm sure he is a great doctor and has a lot of skill (he made sure to tell me about the book he's written and all his acclimates) but I couldn't move past his bedside manor. One time I had an urgent question about test results and couldn't get ahold of anyone in the office for 3 days.

Dr. Cush has been an amazing doctor. He's very thorough and explains everything very well. His staff is very friendly and have always taken care of my needs and questions. I never feel rushed when I am there. I am not just a number being herded like cattle. At this office, I am a human and treated with kindness and compassion. That is hard to find nowadays. I ALWAYS recommend seeing Dr. Cush to friends and family.

Dr. Cush is a very talented and thorough physician. After 10 years searching for the cure for my wrist pain and bone damage, Dr Cush was the first doctor that correctly diagnosed the cause. The big issue is he hires unprofessional and incompetent staff. On 3 occasions, his staff failed to refill my medication in time despite repeated reminders from myself and the pharmacy. Their in-actions had led to my painful flare ups. It's a shame as you can be as good as the people you hire.

Dr. Cush is a brilliant, professional doctor and a phenomenal Rheumatologist. When I was first diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, I was told by a different doctor that I would be in a wheelchair within a year. That was 33 years ago. I immediately went to Dallas to seek better care. When that doctor retired 20 years ago, Dr.;Cush took over my care. He told me that I would NOT be in a wheelchair under his care. I am 75, and i am NOT in a wheelchair, and I give credit to Dr. Cush..

Dr. Cush has been treating me for 10 years. He found a condition that had been plaguing me for years when no other doctor had been able to. He has been treating me and maintaining the condition stably for years now.
