My visit was short as I only wanted to discuss prescription refills. Dr. Cunningham gave me some excellent alternative suggestions to consider. She listened to my concerns and advised me accordingly. I will see her in a year for a full exam.

Dr. Cunningham was wonderful! When I walked in, I was checked in by the receptionist and everything was confirmed, regarding my ZocDoc information packet and my health insurance. Shortly after work, the nurse called me back and took my vitalsand documented a brief history. The nurse was very polite and pleasant to speak to. Dr. Cunningham was very assertive, had great listening skills, and was genuinely interested in helping to find a solution to my problem. In my insurance changed I was very leery of finding a new OBGYN, but after reviewing dr. Cunningham's reviews, I was very happy that I had chosen her office. Dr. Cunningham was very knowledgeable and very understanding and set up a great treatment plan that we have begun to implement. I will definitely return to her office and follow up with her. I would definitely recommend dr. Cunningham for anyone in search of an OBGYN, who cares and listens to her patients.

She was great, very kind and patient. The only thing I would say could be improved would be that I had to proactively ask for her to explain the various options and concerns rather than her offering up a lot ofthe information I was seeking. She answered all of my questions thoroughly though and made me feel comfortable discussing the options!

The front office was very clean and tidy and the TV was at a decent volume. The receptionist was very kind and informative. I waited about 15 or so minutes comfortably until I got called in. The doctor's assistant was verypatient and knowledgeable, she was also very understanding when I explained that I was unable to do as she requested and assured me that it wouldn't be a problem at all! Dr. Cunningham was very understanding and comforting. She explained everything in a basic manner that my 28 year old self could understand. She was very active and explained what she would be doing, step by step, to reassure and get me ready for what was coming next. I appreciate a doctor that takes their time and makes sure that their patient is comfortable. I highly recommend this practitioner and am glad to say I will be going back when needed!

Prescribed me birth control without any discussion of different methods, or any discussion period. Total disregard for my concerns of the method she suggested and my concerns for why I was in the office, to begin with. I was legitimately cryingin pain and she said and did absolutely nothing. You could not have had someone with worse bedside manners or someone who clearly didn't give an ounce of care to her patient.
