Ratings for Dr. Thomas J. Cumbo
Dr. Cumbo has been my doctor for over 30 years. He is a wonderful physician, very caring, knowledgeable, polite, and helpful. Yet, like one of the previous respondants, I too have had issues with "Jane's" attitude in scheduling appointments when I am not well, and it makes me reluctant to call for help! I am not sure why she is still working there.
Dr Cumbo is a kind, understanding, down to earth, highly intelligent man. On my first visit when he walked in the room I knew I was in good hands. He has a very soothing nature. He has a compitent, helpful staff, ALL of them, and I found Jane to be a very kind and compassionate woman.
Dr Cumbo has been my doctor since for 20 years. I have never been disappointed in his care. He takes his time, he listens, he gives me the opportunity to have a conversation. He does not talk AT me, he talks WITH me. I never have to wait more than 10 minutes in the WR and if I do, he offers a genuine apology. He doesn't have to apologize, his care is worth the wait. His staff is wonderful with the exception of "Jane". I have found her to be consistently rude, abrupt and often downright mean. I think I am a pretty low-maintenance patient, but she makes me feel as if I am ruining her day. I see Dr Cumbo probably twice a year on average - I can't be that irritating. In speaking to others, I have heard the same thing, it's usually something like 'I love Dr Cumbo, but he needs to get rid of that Jane'. Bottom line is Dr Cumbo is an excellent physician and I would recommend him without reservation to anyone.
Too bad for others that he is not accepting new patients. Dr. Cumbo has been my Dr. for 20+ years & is a professional in all aspects; more importantly he is a great human being! How many doctors apologize for your having to wait 10 mins or a cold stethascope?! He is wildly respected in the medical field.
