Dr. Michael J Cunningham has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr Cunningham is one of the easiest people to speak with.... he understands your problems and truly helps you achieve wellness in all areas of your life. He is dedicated to his patients and genuinely understands what your needs are. I had an issue that needed immmediete attention and I had moved across the country. After going to different doctors I was not happy and immediately called Dr. Cunningham and he helped me from all the way across the country by correctly diagnosing a skin condition that no other doctor could see in person. He is highly educated and skilled in all areas of health and I highly recommend him to anyone considering a long term relationship with their physician or psychiatrist!
Dr. Cunningham is very easygoing and pleasant. He explains medicine and coordinates with the pharmacy to alleviate stress and time. My family member was not functioning and avoided a mental health evaluation fearing the worst consequence. In the first two sessions he spent more time then any previous psychiatrist; and finally diagnosed our child with adhd, depression, and social anxiety. We wish we had found him earlier, after wasting time with a Dr. In Manhattan that loved to dispense prescriptions for highly addictive legend drugs. Dr. Cunningham Is also a board certified neurologist and internal medicine. I actually had a problem with my diabetes pill and he fixed the issue with an explanation of long and short duration insulin and eating a snack before sleep. Very easy to find and parking is abundant. Overall, he deserves the chance to grow and help change mental health. 45-60 min talk therapy and works with some insurance. Dr Cunningham is Young and not jaded by mentally unstable people. He returns calls the same day and makes us rest easy. We wish we had found him earlier and not wasted nearly 10k on a quack in Manhattan. Also, Dr C. Is a neurologist and internal medicine physician. I am always amazed at the wall of diplomas.
