Dr Cummings is an awesome Physician. Both him and his P.A. have great bed side manner. I would highly recommend to my friends and family.

Excellent doctor who knows what he is doing.

Dr. Cummings is the man! God forbid I ever need surgery again but if I do I won’t even research who’s going to do it. It’s Dr. Cummings period! I can overlook the fact he’s a Penn State fan because he’s one hell of a surgeon! ??. Thanks Doc

Dr. Cummings and staff are truly the best!

Dr Cummings was awesome. I really appreciated his honesty and "East Coast" directness about how to treat my knee. I checked him out in advance and was not disappointed. Plus, he was educated at an excellent med school and lived in Philly where I lived and attended undergrad and grad school. He is top notch and I will return for next appointment,.

Initial visit : clear information, answered all questions thorougly with a good balance of technical/non-technical responses. My only complaint was the wait time
in Phoenix, AZ |
I had a terrible fall requiring surgery on my left knee. After being told I wouldn’t make that marathon him two days, I resigned myself to the care of Dr Koumontzis (Cummings) After 4 months now and missing out on several long distant races, I am recovering very well and ahead of schedule. Thank you for your expertise in taking good care of me. Oh, I’ve never run a marathon I was just kidding. Lol

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.
in Scottsdale, AZ |
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.
in Maricopa, AZ |
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.
