Patient Comments (1)
in Anaheim, CA |
I was dr Cummins patient for 4 years until I had to leave kaiser. She was the best doctor I've ever had! She is a caring, compassionate, warm hearted person and is very easy to connect to. It was always very easy for me to talk to her about anything. I suffer from a lot of back pain and severe migraines she is the only doctor that hasn't treated me like I'm too young too have health conditions and I loved that she always made me feel like she really did care. I definitely miss Dr. Cummins!
