Ratings for Dr. P. Dean Cummings
Not happy that this office was unwilling to talk to me or answer questions after seeing my husband and telling him he needed surgery unless we made another appointment. I didn’t expect to speak to the surgeon and just needed a few basic questions answered that my husband couldn’t remember or didn’t think to ask during his post MRI follow up. I was unable to be there because I could not get off work that day. Really considering getting a second opinion and possibly letting someone else do the surgery. It put the whole clinic in a bad light if they don’t have a few minutes to speak to a potential surgery patients family and answer a couple questions!
I liked Dr. Cummings and was schedule for 5 series of injections in my knee. Each previous appointment I have waited over 1 hour. I talked with the front desk when I arrived as there had to be 20 patients in the waiting room. I knew this was a bad sign. Yes he was behind, couldn’t tell me how long. Finally brought into the “supply room” as there were no more offices available. After now waiting over 1 hour and 15 minutes I walked out. It was sheer frustration. I told Michael at the front desk who just shrugged his shoulders. I’m done, I said, this is absolutely ridiculous that anyone should wait this amount of time. My frustration that this was not the first time this has happened, actually the 4th time. I had seen another physician in the Phoenix office and it was the same problem there. I left my job and was not paid for my time yet I’m sitting in a doctor office which Dr,should have paid me. There is no doctor that is worth waiting for if they can’t schedule patients in a timely fashion, like booking 5 patients at 9:00....really! No apologies, nothing because they don’t care! The know exactally what they are doing and overbooking until they get the next stupid patient who is willing to waste their time...not me!
Dr. Cummings is a Great doctor he had fix my Meniscus on my left knee in 2001 he did a Great Job! and now he fix my right one Very Happy with his work .... and he also fix my husband's ACL and did a Great Job and my husband still Ski .... we are Very Pleased with his work.
I've been seeing Dr Cummings for a couple of years. He and the staff have always been cheerful and helpful. He takes the time to explain what's going on with my health and always welcomes and answers my questions. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone having issues with their knees.
Dr Cummings is friendly and patient, and inspires confidence. I have had 2 surgeries performed by him with good success both times. My only slight negative is that some follow-up appointments when I am expecting to see him turn out to be with his PA instead, but since these appointments are routine with no complications this is not a serious complaint.
