Dr cushing is extremely knowledgable in all aspects of orthopedics. He truly goes above and beyond and cares for people. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Cushing has absolutely ruined my life. I had ankle surgery and was told it was a simple surgery. I ended up with CRPS - Chronic regional pain syndrome. The top rated very worst pain on any scale. I am now completely disabled and in constant pain. DO NOT GO TO HIM!!! He doesnt deserve to practice medicine. He disgusts me.

He has ruined my life. He botched my shoulder surgery, and it took him 6 months to make that decision. I have no use of the arm he operated on. When I went in for my 6 week checkup, he told me to come back in 6 weeks. At the following check up, he told me he could not read my new x-rays he took, and told me to come back in 6 weeks. On the next visit he took x-rays and said he could not read those, to get a CT. On the next check up. He told me I had and infection and he needed to operate on

We don't know if he is a good surgeon or not. He would not come in when he was on call on a weekend to operate on my wife's broken ankle. 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 to see her. He then would have sent her back to the hospital for surgery. We found another surgeon. He might be an okay surgeon, but as a man he's a loser with a nice car.
