I would and do recommend Dr. Cunningham to everyone. He is as caring and compassionate as any doctor you will find. He has gone way above just his job and is always very attentive and proficient.

He is thorough. You may have to wait a bit in the office, but worth it as you will find out when he sees you. You are the priority. He also has a friendly way about him. Best dr I have ever seen.

Dr Cunningham, was honestly great. He was very nice and cordial, and was quite pleasant. However, be prepared to get all kinds of unexplainable bills 90+ days after surgery. I specifically asked for an amount before even having a consultation. So I could pay upfront. I continue to get bills to this day. Maybe I'm complacent, but think that a professional office should be able to give me an upfront dollar amount, and not sneak fees in after the fact.

Dr Cunningham is rude and has no concern for his patients. Been suffering with recurring sinus infections. He gave antibiotics to clear it up, but when the infection came back, he said he needed a culture the next morning. Went in to his office to have culture done, but he was too busy and sent me away, said I would have to make an appointment the following week. If he can not take care of his patient which he told to come in, and has no staff to take a culture, then he don't need my business.

Not very happy after my visit. signed consent for treatment but nothing on that sheet stated any fees. Not only was the fee outrageous but I had to meet my deductible on top of it and my office co-pay. Not a great way to run a business. Treatment plans and consent need to have fees on them so patient will know what they will owe prior to a procedure. I had this procedure done before , for just my office co-pay.

I saw Dr. Cunningham one time. He was very rough in the way he examined me and treated. He attitude was I should know what he knew. The medication he prescribed and filled by my pharmacy wasn't for nasal passages. The pharmacy blamed it on the Dr. for not prescribing it for the nose.
