Dr. Cummings' Care Philosophy

I am always impressed with the results of taking a few extra minutes with a patient. This additional time spent in consultation and discussion about their disease regularly improves not only our relationship, but also the quality of care they receive. I strive to have each patient truly participate in their individual treatment plan.
