“Dr. Cummins has been really great. He’s been better than great, actually, even better than I could have expected. He acknowledges me, talks to me, and even asks me how I am doing and if there is anything he can do to help when I see him out in public. The hospital staff treats me like I am family when I am there. As a community, we are lucky to have such a wonderful hospital with incredible doctors so close to home.” - George Pope General Surgery Patient
