I switched from another provider who was excellent, but had her office downtown to this provider in the suburbs. I am very happy I switched, not just because it is much easier getting to the appointment, but because Dr. Cummins is just as excellent as the doctor downtown. She is caring and interested in my problems. I am very pleased.

Dr. Cummins is an excellent doctor. She is compassionate and genuine. I felt completely comfortable to be in her care and she tried to put be at ease explaining things thoroughly and being honest, but caring. When she called to give me the results of my biopsy, again she was caring and thorough. I appreciated her recommendation for treatment and know she had my best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Dr. Cummins to anyone.

I was very impressed with Dr. Cummins. She was kind, soft-spoken, and thorough. I feel I have found the dermatologist that I will go to in the future. I've been to many dermatologists, but never felt this confident in their knowledge and interest in me as a person. I also appreciated that Dr. Cummins never once pushed me to purchase any products or procedures (for cosmetic reasons).

The amount of time Dr. Cummins spent was certainly adequate. I had no problems or concerns as this was a routine check-up and I assume she is trained to do a body scan really quickly. However, compared to other physicians I see, I felt like she was rushing to get to her next appointment. She DID answer all my questions, would have answered more if I had them, and certainly would have spend more time if I had any problems. She's very friendly and competent...she just seems rushed, which I don't find comfortable.
