Dr. Cushing is an excellent doctor!

“He is really nice and talks in a way that makes it easy to follow. He has an outstanding professional nature, and is a great doctor.”

Glenn Flake

Pre-op visit for rotator cuff issues exceeded expectations. Cushing took the time to explain and communicate well.

“My postoperative physical therapy and home therapy program was perfect. I am now 11 months postop and don’t even think about my right shoulder anymore. I referred Dr. Cushing to many people since my surgery who have had same reactions to his quality of care and outcomes.”
