"Outstanding care and concern from start through finish" was my experience with Dr. Cunningham. He was very engaging and listened to my questions. His surgical skill and the excellence of his team made me feel secure and confident doing my two surgeries.

Clear; concise; thorough; does not talk down to me. Experience w/conditions of the eye as they relate to S.L.E. (systemic lupus erythematosus) & associated medications.
