Diva Doc

Relies too heavily on Physician Assistants and does not like to be told so... Had an appt at 5:15, noticed 2 others had been scheduled for the same time. At 5:30, was told MD left, no other explanation. We were told we could see his PAs. When I complained in an email to him about this; I was berated by him over the phone. Basically, it's his way or the highway, !

Dr. Cushner is the scope master! and a fantastic surgeon..!!

He is quick to diagnose and tell you what your problems are. His staff of PA are excellent. I worked with Brett who has been with Dr. Cushner many years. He is also very knowledgeable and explains what and why your injury feels the way it does. They are both very compassionate and leave you with a "your in good hands" feeling. I personally have seen Dr. Cushner for many years and he has taken care of my shoulder and both knee meniscus tears. He is a great doc and nice guy over all...Funny too..
