    Dr. Cushner has been my doctor for the last ten years. He first operated my left knee 0n 06/2005, not only did he explained the whole procedure but he was the first face I saw when I woke up from the anesthesia. Few years later he operated me on my right wrist. Again he was very explanatory during the process and was waiting for me to wake up from the anesthesia, to explain what I'm feeling and what will I be feeling in the next few days. That to me was huge to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had a great experience with Dr. Cushner, I had an old shoulder injury that needed extensive surgery and rehabilitation. He explained the procedure and the rehab and was with me during the process. I was able to reach in by phone and email and had a good experience with the physician assistants that helped him. I can not thank him enough. I have a number of friends and family that also have seen him, some requiring surgery some not, all very happy

    If I was able to give zero stars I would.I had rotator cuff repair done to my shoulder in April only to experience constant pain and telling Dr. Cushner. He just said to continue with physical therapy and Cortizone.it never relented and now eight months later with the help of another surgeon and he showed me that the anchor that Dr. C. put into my shoulder got loose and was floating on top of the shoulder ripping open the rotator cuff again. Dr C. Post Op will Not be available to you. Run!!!!!
