Patient Comments (24)

Dr. Cummings is a personable, skilled doctor. He communicates well with patients and is knowledgeable and up to date of treatments and techniques. It is unfortunate that at this time (Spring '18) is is not doing full joint replacement surgery. Because if he were, I'd trust him.

He is my the best surgeon I have ever had (out of 6). He has the best bedside manner. He is so personable and explains everything, unlike many surgeons. I highly recommend Dr. Cummings.
