Dr. Cummings left me with a feeling of confidence in his ability and that he cared about my health.

Excellent Experience. I plan to use Dr. Cummings when my second knee has to be replaced. He did a great job on my first knee replacement.

Dr. Cummings gave a great explanation of what he felt was wrong with my knee. He did a great job of explaining the options and was onboard with taking the conservative approach that made the most sense to me.

Very professional and attuned to my request and needs.
