Entire office is ill managed. I sat and waited over an hour without anyone communicating with me. I even asked other patience and they too were waiting beyond their appointment time. The doctor saw me for all of 10 minutes. Iliterally walked out before the entire exam was completed. Complete waste of my time.

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!

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. Hisfront 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. Cudadid 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 notdisappointed 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 medicaloffice specialist is seasoned and knows how things work on the paperwork and insurance side. A bright spark for those waiting.

Dr Cuda is a miracle worker. I had a severe injury to my right ankle and thought I would never walk right again. He was able to work wonders with it and got me back on my feet.

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 considerationsand 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.
