My son saw Dr. Cummings when he had strep throat. She was great at making him feel comfortable and helping him not be nervous about the throat swab. Would definitely feel comfortable seeing her again if my son's normal doctor is out of the office.

My husband and I took our two daughters for their wellness check-up. Dr. Cummings was very professional, kind, friendly and she has a great bedside manner. We could not be happier and our daughters enjoyed their visit as well.
