    When a doctor you have never met is wearing a mask and telling you that you probably have cancer, and you trust him immediately and completely....that is a gift! It's a super power, and as a physician myself, one I wish I had. Dr. McCusker was kind and sensitive, but completely thorough and honest. He did not pull punches, but also left room for hope and optimism. He answered all of my questions and is extremely knowledgeable. I can not emphasize enough how calming and kind he is. During the recovery process, he made sure my considerable pain was well treated and again that I had my questions answered. I would not hesitate to send my patients to him, or my family and friends. If you have been referred to him or are considering choosing him, have no question he will provide you with really terrific care.

    One of the best things about Dr. McCusker is he gives you his undivided attention and listens carefully. I had sinus surgery for a growth in a sinus cavity which had been previously missed by another physician. He explained the procedure and the followup care that would be necessary. Dr. McCusker addressed all of my concerns at post op visits and I was released with a clean bill of health after three visits.

    Had couple office visits prior to surgery, septoplasty, to correct breathing issue with blocked nasal passages. Dr. McCusker was always very easy to talk to and based on his responses to my questions, he is a good listener. I am generally rather critical of serious matters, such as my health, but thus far very pleased with the results of my surgery.

    My experience with Dr McCusker and his staff has been excellent. I went to Dr McCusker for chronic sinus infections and deviated septum. He was very thorough in his diagnosis and talked with me extensively about my options for surgery in a way that put my fears at ease. He takes extreme pride in his work and wants the very best outcome for his patients. His staff is friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone looking for relief for sinus issues or for cosmetic surgery.
