Verified Patient Reviews
My husband really liked him!!
Has good bedside manner, wait time at the window and to be seen was a bit long.
Dr Cuda was very good at explaining everything and suggested different possible treatments.
Was with the doctor for about. 5 minutes so cant say much. Will have to see when I follow up next visit.
Dr Cuda is very professional and knowledgeable. He and his staff are also very efficient and friendly.
He was very nice..and took time to listen to my problem...I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends. ...
Dr. Cuda and his staff are great!
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!
Very patient and very thorough .
I enjoyed the environment of the office. They appear to have everything there to assist the patient, even a small x-ray machine.
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.
Dr. Cuda did a great job providing me with information on a new procedure called Tenex. so far it's still kind of early but I do see some improvement and hopefully in in the remaining weeks I'll be able to return back to my normal lifestyle
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 was very comfortable with my appointment.
Staff and Dr Cuda did an excellent job on evaluation and treatment. I would recommend them to highly. Great doctor and staff.
courteous, professional, and very knowlegible
Always very pleased, they are very good at what they do!
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.
The doctor was just fine the problem that I have is that I don't respect my time. The doctor was just fine the problem that I have is that I don't respect my time When I have an appointment at 12:30 and show up at 12 I expect to be seen at 12:30 not 130
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.
Dr. Cuda right away targeted my fascia plantaris and started my treatment. Highly recommend him, he's a great and knowledgeable doctor.
From check in to check out, all staff were very attentive and nice. Office atmosphere very uplifting. Dr. thorough and explained things well.
Dr. Cuda had an excellent bedside manner, was very personable and informative. He made you feel at ease and listened to me and what I had to say. One of the best doctors I have ever seen.
Wait time increased due to connectivity issues at the office. Once in, x-rays taken, Q&A done and seen by Dr. Cuda.
Dr. Cuda's staff are all wonderful. I've been under his care for over a year now. Dr. Cuda takes his time with each patient. He's a great listener, and very thorough when describing his diagnosis. His assistant/cast artist, Robert is very knowledgable also.
I LOVE Dr. Cuda. He treated my plantar faciitis 10 years ago. It was GONE! Its been 8 years since I needed him. He's AWESOME!!!
He's the doctor to see when something goes wrong from the ankle down.
Listened well. Took a good look at my films and at me before making a decision as to next steps. Straight to the point and discussed options (risks and benefits). Great bedside manner. Very friendly and responsive.

EXCELLENT Staff and excellent physician!!! I would highly recommend this physician. The wait was worth it because this Dr takes his time with ALL his patients.
He was thorough & explained things so that I understood.
He was great but the wait time was too long and the receptionist was not at the front for long. She was too busy in the back.
He is an amazing doctor with real passion for what he does look foward to working with him
The visit was fine but did not see the doctor until 1 hour 45 minutes after my SCHEDULED appointment time! And, I arrived 15 minutes prior to my appointment
I'm glad I went to see him. Honest and takes time to talk about you health and alternatives.
Doctor Cuda was very clear on explaining everything he felt should be done. He gave me two choices and just stated which one he felt would be best but left it up to me to decide. I liked that.
Dr. Cuda has been my physician for years. He is so very skilled and he is easy to talk to.
Very happy with diagnosis! Looking forward to mending under Dr. Cuda's care!
I like and have confidence in Dr. Cuda...he has gotten my visit mixed up both times with another patient, but I would definitely go back to him. His office staff is very kind and helpful. You can tell he is a busy doctor, but feel like he gives me the time I need during a visit.
He's thorough, kind, and always professional.
I always have such a great experience with Dr. Cuda and his staff. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an orthopedic doctor with loads of experience and a wonderful bedside manner!
Dr. Cuda and his staff are the best! Every time I leave, I think about how grateful I am to have found him as my ortho. I have been treated by hm for almost two years and through two surgeries. He is the best doc and a great surgeon.
CALL AHEAD TO MAKE SURE APPOINTMENTS ARE RUNNING ON SCHEDULE. GREAT DOCTOR AND STAFF!
Perfect visit, staff was friendly and professional. Dr Cuda was very open to talk with, extremely satisfied with my treatment. Highly recommend him.
LOVE A DOCTOR THAT REALLY LISTENS AND WANTS TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR CONDITION. STAFF STAYED ON TOP OF MRI ORDERS AND PRESCRIPTIONS, WONDERFUL! WAIT TIME WAS TOO LONG.
Dr. Cuda is great. He and his staff are always great and make things as smooth as possible. I have been a patient of his for many years and have never once ran into any problems with him or anyone that works for him.
He is an excellent physician, but waiting over an hour to be seen is ridiculous.
He is very good. He explained all possible causes of the condition and answered questions before I had the chance to ask them.
Love the doctor as he was very professional but believe that a 2 hour wait was wrong. Must learn to shorten wait time.
Dr. Cuda is great despite how busy he is. His staff is always friendly and helpful.
He was awesome!
gave me other options to consider
My visits w dr Cuda are always very profitable. He tries very hard to help with the problem. If he didn't I would go to another doctor.
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.
Dr. Cuda is very personable and knowledgeable about what he does. He can put a patient at ease and his staff is just as wonderful and full of knowledge to help you navigate through your concerns and steps for surgery, FMLA, disability and so on.
Answered questions and as always knows just what needs to be done.
Professional, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly - put me at ease right away. Provided necessary equipment for injury and comfort.
