I am a patient on Dr. Cummings in the Denton office. I called his office on Tuesday explaining that I am in a lot of pain and need to see him for pain mgt. The first nurse Karen was really pleasant and appt me for Wed. morning however, I am a Program Director and forgot that my instructor wasn't coming work that morning and I had to cover for her. I called back the same day Tuesday around 4:45pm and explain the situation and begged to take the last appt for the day and a different nurse. Judy or Jody answer and was extremely RUDE to me on the phone. She basically yelled at me and told me that she couldn't do anything for me and I will have to see the nurse practitioner on Friday at 3:30. Well that nurse called on yesterday and told me that they couldn't see me because her doctor doesn't schudule surgeries. I explain to her that my appt is for pain mgt and I was aware. The nurse explain that she didn't see any notes about my asking to no BEGGING to be the last patient for the day on Wednesday. So, the nurse called me back on this morning and explained how Dr. Cummings was surprised that I didn't make the appt on Wed. and he couldn't see me today because I can't get off work until 1 today. So, the suggestion was to go to the hospital and let them see me. This is ridiculous that I am being punished for having to work and earn a living and now I have to go a make a BIGGER bill to be taken care of. THIS OFFICE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR PATIENTS!!!!! THEY NEED TO HIRE PPL THAT REALLY CARE ABOUT THE PATIENTS AND WANT TO HELP THEM NOT TURN THEM DOWN. I WILL BE ACTIVELY SEARCHING FOR ANOTHER OFFICE THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF MY NEEDS.
Dr. Cummings did an exam on one morning and suggested I have a sonogram, and speak with me after about the results. After I had the sonogram, he didn't have time to see me and his staff asked me to come back the next day for the results. I went back the very next day. Dr. Cummings thanked me for coming all the way back to the office since he was unable to go over the results with me the prior day. The most disappointing thing was that all he wanted to discuss is hysterectomy. I asked him if there were any other options, and even though I found later that taking hormone therapy is an option, he told me that surgery was the only option. To be clear, there is no cancer, just irregular bleeding. I felt he was too anxious to do surgery and that was all he wanted to talk about. The conversation only lasted less than 5 minutes and when I left, I was charged a whole new exam fee. The same price as I had already paid the day prior. I paid and after called their billing department to try and work it out, but they said that even though it wasn't my fault I had to come back the next day, they charged me a whole new exam fee for his time. In my opinion, his time was useless anyway, as all he wants to do is surgery. Very disappointed in this doctor. I think he may be nearing retirement and is just burned out.
I have no words to describe how amazing Dr Cummings is. This was my first pregnancy and it ended in a c-section that was an overall an amazing experience. Such an amazing Dr, such an amazing person.
