Book an Appointment
Patients Say:

“I always feel listened to and taken care of by Dr. Cunningham. She always provides me with options and the ability to decide upon my own care.”

“Dr. Cunningham is very respectful, kind and competent.”

Dr. Cunningham Says:

“My husband and I enjoy traveling internationally. We love anything outdoors — hiking, backpacking, camping. Otherwise, we spend our time with family and our dog.

The most rewarding part about being a primary care doctor is developing long-term relationships with patients, so we can work together to maintain and improve their health. It is truly a privilege.”
