Ratings for Dr. Michelle Cunningham
Dr. Cunningham is the epitome of what a family physician. She is thorough, informed, kind and caring. Additionally she is approachable and willing to make referrals and follow through, explore on new methods and approaches. I personally feel that without her care I would be an invalid today. Additionally she is not condensing and has realistic expectations of her patients. Personally Kim is a true link between doctor and patient and I trust her as she too cares. I have found her long-term coverage outstanding but have great difficulty with lack of access to a family physician at times when the system requires our family physician has to provide inpatient hospital coverage, without providing designated emergency coverage to their patients. Regardless I feel that we as a family won the lotto when suddenly we were without a doctor and Dr. Cunningham, who was just setting up her practice, accepted us as a patient.
I have had a few doctors in my life and Dr. Cunningham is THE BEST! She never makes you feel rushed and will listen to everything you are concerned about in a patient and warm manner. She is super caring and friendly and has the best bedside manner. She is very knowledgeable and i always feel that I am in good hands. Kim and all of her staff are fantastic and her replacement right now - Dr. Downton is a wonderful friendly doctor as well. When my other crappy doctor left the country and my pharmacy gave me the choice of 2 new doctors to call in town - thank goodness i chose Dr. Cunningham!!!
If I could give her all ZERO'S I would. She refuses to treat blood work proven issues. You should be able to go to a dr and express your concerns for your own mental health and actually receive treatment. Dr's like her are the ones loosing clients to suicide
Efficient is the best word I can come up with. The place feels like a walk in clinic, wait wait and then out asap. I am confident in her technical skill, but I think that good health care requires taking a bit of time with patients to get to know the whole situation. I also find reception. difficult contact, absence of follow up from referals and the signage as to how to 'behave' as a patient are all indicators of minimum level service where the patient is not more than a necessary evil to deal with on the job.
I agree that she is a very good doctor: knowledgeable (though there may be uncertain things and different approaches in medicine), very caring and empathetic, kind. However, it's true that punctuality is not her strength, and sometimes she is absent for a week or two. However, she never refuses to have a look and check some other issues or a child even if the appointment was for me; answers all my questions. The staff is very affable and cooperative, too. After all, I feel happy to be her patient, as well as all my family.
