Professional staff and physician. Very personable. Would like a better way to connect than Zocdoc as it seems not to be an accurate instrument and one must still check in with the office. And the answering service does not take messages, but advises you to call back. Otherwise, great!

I was very pleased with everything up until I talked to the dr. He saw me for like 5 minutes and told me go back to my first dr. Even though I told him I didn't want to. I felt like it was a total waste of my time and money.

I have needed to be seen by an Ortho doc the day before boarding on a plane and the staff squeezed me in that day otherwise I would have had to reschedule my trip. Suburb professional patient care. I have actually referred friends to Dr Cuda and they too have been pleased with his care.

From the front office to the Dr. it was great. I have been with this doctor since 2016 and he is straight shooting, yet personable and caring. He is in and out quickly, but does what needs to be done. His front office registration is OUTSTANDING. She knows her business and is personable. I hope the new young lady picks up on that...smiles go a long way when people are in pain. I will refer and continue with Dr. Cuda! Virginia M

I have not doubt that Dr. Cuda is a good surgeon. My problem is that his office is so difficult to communicate with. They do not answer the phone and many times the door is locked during regular hours. Dr. Cuda did not seem familiar with what was going on even though I filled out all of the info online. My husband and daughter had to wait two hours to see him for a five minute visit that was not very helpful.

Dr Cuda is a highly trained, knowledgeable physician who takes took his time and explained everything that was wrong with my knee. Unfortunately, I am a repeat customer but I trusted his judgement the first time (ankle surgery) and was not disappointed the second time. He is kind and compassionate and his office staff are top notch, they are extremely friendly and efficient!!

Great bedside manners by Dr. Cuda. He is to the point, user friendly conversations about technical issues, and keeps his eye on clients even when his staff is completing his directions to ensure follow through in a timely manner. The medical office specialist is seasoned and knows how things work on the paperwork and insurance side. A bright spark for those waiting.

Front office staff can make or break a practice. Dr. Cuda's staff is very professional and super courteous! They were great! Initially, Dr. Cuda was a little perplexed with my symptoms, but once we discussed MRI findings, he offered considerations and options of treatment. I hope I don't have to go back, but if I ever have another foot/ankle problem, I certainly will go see him.
