Very professional and very caring!!! Does the job and doesn't leave any mysteries!!!!! I highly recommend him!!

Went to this guy after having severe nerve pain in my legs and arms not long after being involved in a wreck in which I did have two bulged discs. I was hit by a guy who was on drugs. I only went to his office twice and first time was for a nerve test that proved damaged nerves in my legs. I never mentioned suing anyone cause it's possible the pain might not be related but he assumed this of me and kicked me out saying he doesn't see people who were in auto accidents! Told me to never come back

Do not go to this so called Doctor. My wife was referred to Dr. Cuccia for neuropathic pain related to a car wreck where she was rear ended a few months ago. The Doctor basically kicked her out of the clinic and told her he did not want to see people that were injured in vehicle accidents. What kind of doctor does something like that!? Needless to say, my wife was distraught, after wasting half of her day, and paying for a baby sitter just so this guy could refuse to see her. Beware, stay away!

I would not recommend him to anyone. I have been waiting for almost a month for my short term disability paper. Yes that is one page so I can draw my checks from work. I am about to lose my house and car and he just hasn't filled out the paper. He basically gave me a years worth of meds and closed the door on me. Just makes me sick to try to find a dr. That cares about us anymore as clients. So if you choose him good luck hope you get more help than I have.
