She was very unpleasant to deal with a nasty "I hate my job and I hate you and your kid" demeanor. I did not find her knowledgeable or helpful. We left no better off than we came. Found a different DR who has ordered the proper tests and made many other suggestions including food, supplements and wellness. Cukaj was useless to us and a waste for time.

She was fixated on treating my child with antacids. Even after they failed, she scheduled her for an unnecessary invasive procedure. She lied to us (to my child) that we could be with our child throughout. After a 3 hour delay,they absolutely did not allow me to stay with her during her procedure. They promised to bring me back in the room before she woke. Another lie. Afterwards, when she saw that there was clearly no acid damage, she said my child would have to live with her chronic pain

So I’m sure that we can’t be the only parents w had this experience. Our daughter started having a very acid that burned her so raw and red, this happened out of no where with bleeding that looked like it was from road rash. She was in excruciating pain. Our pediatrician referred the MD group. Our pediatrician had hoped to get a breath lactose test done. MD took blood instead. No conclusion. Her staff is real rude. Cukaj is rude. We were lied to about preauthorization and MD doesn’t care

We saw Dr.Cukaj once. She diagnosed my daughter with GERD and constipation. Said she would prescribe a stool softener and antacid. . Never prescribed the stool softener, I had to call to remind her when I found out that our insurance company didn't cover the antacid. She said she would prescribe something else, never did. After giving my daughter the second dose of the stool softener she had an allergic reaction and I had to take her to the ER. I called the practice 3 times to speak to Dr.Cukaj
