My husband and I have been treating with Dr. Cummings since 2007, and we love him and his staff. Dr. Cummings is an excellent doctor. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Cummings is one of the Best in the Valley, but his dedication to your well-being places him above the others. There is no other orthopedic surgeon I would trust more to repair my rotator cuff than Dr. Cummings and just like anyone else seeking and reading these reviews, I'm picky and I do my research.

I have never had a need for an Orthopedic Surgeon and had no referraI, God guides my steps, thus it was ment to be for us to meet. Dr's staff get 5 Stars also. The whole process was seamless through 4 months. Dr Cummings has excellent bedside manner. He is clear, concise and thorough. He prefers right treatment over Prosperity. I'll never use any other. His personality is infectious so beware, give him a chance and you will never need another. Dr Cummings is Blessed. I'm so much better for him.
