Seeing Dr. Cunningham is a pleasure for me. Because I see him every three months, it's nice to know what to expect. His nurse usually takes you back early where you're greeted by Tammy who is so friendly and helpful. Overall, this is one doctor I LIKE to see!

Always rushing during the doctor's visits. Had to perform the surgery twice. Would not recommend the doctor to anyone.

I would very much recommend Dr. Cunningham! He did my total knee replacement in late November and had me back to work mid January. They are very detailed and efficient. I never had to wait more than 10 minutes on any office visit.

Dr. Cunningham has done a total joint replacement on both my right and left shoulders. I was very pleased with the results and he is very competent.

Dr Cunningham is the best! I had a very successful knee replacement several years ago and now it seems that I need my other knee replaced. I feel confident to have Dr Cunningham do the job and I'll be scheduling it for this summer.

Dr Cunningham and PA Matt Williams have great positive attitudes. Both were very good listeners and explanatory in the recovery procedure. My problem was I thought I'd be running the Boston Marathon a month after knee replacement, now I realize once you have a joint replacement it's going to take time to heal. It's been five months since my knee replacement and it feels great and a 100% better than it was before the surgery..Thanks

I would recommend this doctor to others if they are looking for someone who is caring and compassionate, although he couldn't treat me because I was sent to the wrong type of doctor (shoulder of spine), he was sure to get me to the right doctor and also ordered the needed MRI. His staff was courteous and the wait time was minimal.

Dr Cunningham has performed knee repair surgery for my daughter and shoulder surgery for me. We have both been very pleased with the results and his friendly professionalism. I would highly recommend Dr Cunningham without reservation.
Thank you for your feedback!
