Horrible!

My initial impression of the doctor was good. However, after an extreme reaction to HRT therapy, my hemorrhaging worsened and I ultimately collapsed. My family immediately called the Doctor's office informing them of my condition and asked which emergency room to head for. The call resulted in an office staff that had a uncaring, condescending attitude. Staff stated IF I go to an emergency room, the doctor would not be responsible any longer. Family asked for the Doctor to call back and they stated the doctor does not make calls. Family attempted to talk with the PA (no help and had a seriously unprofessional attitude), the office supervisor (equally unhelpful and quick to confirm if we didn't like their system to take our needs somewhere else). In spite of my dire health condition, I never did receive a call back from the doctor nor the staff. That same day I faded seriously and I WAS RUSHED TO HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM .... 7 hours in the ER, I was treated, stabilized, with further medical treatment recommendations and schedules. I still have not been contacted by the doctor nor the office staff. It is simply stunning that a physician would be so out of touch with how her office staff treats patients and would allow that attitude affect the trust her patients must have in her professional reputation. Based on my recent experiences, I would not recommend this doctor based on the disrespectful and dangerously unprofessional office to anyone.

Two Stars

They seem "nice" during a visit, but basically you are in and out and they're done with you. Get your test results online yourself. If something is wrong a staff member calls to brusquely tell you what the orders are and you are not allowed to speak with the doctor. If you question the orders, you will be bullied and belittled by the staff. If you pay for your visit in cash, they will stare at you like a freak - this is strictly a "boutique" practice and those of us who pay cash are suspect, I guess. Not a good fit for my needs at all.

Drops You When Yoiu Get Medicare

Dr Cumming drops her patients when they become eligible for Medicare. If you hope that your doctor will be there for the long term, I recommend you try another practice.
