Dr. Cummings and his staff are wonderful. Dr. Cummings engages on a personal level while relaying all pertinent medical information in a professional manner. I'm very cautious with whom I trust in regards to my health care and I feel confident in Dr. Cummings' knowledge and expertise to partner with me to make the best decision for my care.
