    How was your appointment with Dr. Cummings?

    Jan 13, 2022
    I saw Dr. Cummings yesterday because I was still in pain after a fall Dec. 1st (6 weeks) and was told by POM x-rays that the x-rays they took showed nothing and I was okay. Dr. Cummings found that I did have a broken wrist and laid out a plan to get me feeling better. Wrist brace was placed on me and medication to bring down the inflammation and set up a therapy plan. I have a follow up in 2 weeks but already feel better just knowing what is wrong. Dr Cummings was so nice and caring, I feel very lucky that he is the one my primary Dr. decided to refer me to.
