Patient Comments (5)

I would not recommend Dr Cushing at all. For the 2 minutes he spent with me he was rude and did not seem to care at all about my knee pain. He took NO time to explain my problem, and rushed out of the room before I could ask questions. No MRI or diagnostics were done.

She was in great distress and he wanted to send her home with pain pills and have her go to his clinic on the following Monday when it was convenient for him...more
