I don't know where to start. Dr. Cusimano is the best! If he is your neurosurgeon count yourself as very fortunate. Although I had a six month wait for my surgery I felt that if it was crucial to do it sooner he would have. Dr. Cusimano is also a trama surgeon so after every trama my surgery was pushed back. There were certainly emergencies that were more important than mine. He explained my surgery to me in terms I could understand, didn't hesitate to answer my questions and I left his office feeling that I was in very capable hands. On the day of surgery he met me in the OR and after greeting me put me at ease, what a fine doctor. Upon awakening from the anesthesia the pain was easily managed and I felt so much better. It was a miracle. I haven't felt better in 20 years. Other doctors upon hearing Dr. Cusimano was my surgeon told me to "count my lucky stars". I did and continue to do so. Thank you Dr. Cusimano and god bless!
For those who live in Ottawa, I wanted to pass on advice that I feel it is worth it to get the care you need in Toronto. While Ottawa has good people and services, it does not compare to the level of care, expertise and thoroughness that can be found at St. Michael's and with Dr. Cusimano. We made the switch after we found Ottawa to be disorganized. We were talking mostly to medical residents who provided misinformation (surgeon often not available for appointments). Some tests that we needed to be done fell through the cracks and we needed to follow up, and there was much less thorough care (some of the standard tests were not done as in Toronto).
If it was possible to more than 5 stars I would have marked that. Dr. Cusimano is a truly exceptional doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable, very kind and compassionate, takes the time to take put his patients at ease (took an hour on our first visit), extremely thorough and organized, does not drop anything on follow-up, communicates clearly what to expect. He only surrounds himself with the best people such as other specialists. Lots of ways to get through to him with information with his medical clerk and nurse-practitioner. His colleagues and nurses regard him very highly and talk about how he is the best around. You will be lucky to have Dr. Cusimano as your neurosurgeon.

I don't know how anyone could say anything remotely negative about Dr. Cusimano. He is truly a model surgeon. Ive been to family doctors who will limit you to one concern per visit. Dr. Cusimano will literally spend an hour with you making sure that you are completely comfortable and have peace of mind by the time you leave. I came to his clinic with my mother and husband and he literally spent 45 minutes with us just answering all of our questions and putting us at ease. He never once made us feel rushed or as if we were taking too much of his time. He saw me Every single day after my surgery and provided so much support along the way. I can't possibly thank Dr. Cusimano enough. I wish we had more doctors like him. He's truly a gem.
I recently had an emergency visit to St Michael's Hospital. I am from out of town. The first Doctor that I saw was Dr Michael Cusimano. He took a call from my family Dr in Dec 2014, and she explained that an aneurysm was found from an MRI I had and she was concerned and she could find no one in my area who could see me because it was behind my left eye. When she called St Michael's for an emergency situation and Dr Cusimano took the call right away and was very kind and understanding and said he would see me as soon as I could get there. Once I arrived there, true to his word he was there, it was a 6 hour drive for us to get there. He was so helpful in explaining my situation and my options. Since then I have had my aneurysm coiled and feel like I have been given a second chance at life. Thank you Dr Cusimano for being there for me. God bless you
