2 Medical mistakes that cause my mom to be on hospice fighting for her life.

1. Infection in her feet in legs that mom had for 5 years that Dr. Cummings refuse to treat or send her to a specialist. 2. Sore on her bottom that Dr. Cummings told her it was Singles and was bed sores instead.

Disappointing and frustrating!!

Cancels appointments without notice, no priority on rescheduling, even cancelled an appointment with patient waiting in the office. Staff seems disinterested in patient care and confidentiality. In reading other reviews, it seems staff problems at Dr. Cummings office go back years. If you get into the office with Dr. Cummings, she does spend time with you, although you must make sure your prescriptions are accurately noted in your chart and called into pharmacies. Experienced numerous problems in this area...and since she faxes prescriptions into the pharmacy, there's no way to review for accuracy prior to leaving her office. Her office has voicemail, but messages aren't returned--in my experience and referrals are often delayed or forgotten (?) Very disappointed with the overall experience with this doctor and her office.

Truly Unprofessional

Waited 90 minutes past my appointment time. Since SHE was so late, and she had allowed my mid-afternoon appointment to slip to closing time, Dr. Cummings just decided she would call it a day. Staff would not refund my copay before I left (without being seen), which was paid in cash. So I also had to wait 3 weeks for my copay to be returned by mail.I should have filed a complaint with the State but she's not worth my time. A physician who acts like this, however, is not fit to practice.
