January 03, 2020

the vist was great. felt listening to and they explained everything and I asked questions to and they new what I was talking about

December 05, 2019

The doctor was very good. My wish for a better understanding of my son's issues is NOT due to the doctor under performing in anyway, but due to the difficulty of my ability as a layman to understand neurological issues.

November 22, 2019

Dr. Cummings is very thorough and he has provided us with other avenues to pursue for referrals. he makes my daughter feel very comfortable when she is in his office.

November 20, 2019

I was satisfied with the visit.

August 29, 2019

I would not recommend Dr. Cummings to anyone. He had poor bedside manner and did not listen to our concerns. He recommended tests for our child, but did not take the time to explain anything to us. We were left with more questions after our visit with him than when we started.
