If you are looking for a second opinion on your condition, don't bother with Dr. Cummings he doesn't entertain second opinion requests. Very disappointing.

I went to Dr. Cummings to confirm or reject a neurosurgeon's diagnosis that I had cervical spinal myelopathy. After several sessions, Dr. Cummings could not confirm or reject the diagnosis. He did not examine MRIs that were provided to him; he merely read the radiologist reports and noted discrepencies. He did not attempt to resolve the discrepencies. Additionally, he failed to explain the results of a SSEP test that was performed at my request. He did not meet my expectations.

I would recommend Dr. Cummings to anyone that requires a Neurologist. Dr. Cummings manner is very friendly, he takes the time to get to know the patient. He is very thorough and not rushed in any way. His explanation of the test results is clear and understandable by all. Dr. Cummings welcomes questions. He really is a nice person that truly wants to help his patients.
