I’ve been treated by Dr Cummings for various Hand and elbow problems for the last 15 Years. Dr Cummings is a master diagnostician and his surgical skills are second to none. Highly recommended.

I couldn’t work for 2 years because of a pain with my wrist. I saw other doctors that could not help me. Dr C found the problem and gave me my life back. My surgical experience was great and he sutures like a Plastic Surgeon. Excellent doctor
