More About Dr. Cunningham

During his time serving as a physician in the Navy, Dr. Cunningham encountered many young, otherwise healthy individuals who suffered from the symptoms of vein disease. These patients profoundly impacted Dr. Cunningham, mainly because these patients often have no apparent signs of vein disease such as varicose veins, swelling, or skin discoloration. Only through ultrasound examination can venous insufficiency be confirmed, and the discomfort treated.

Empathy is an essential aspect of Dr. Cunningham’s practice. He says, “I can list the schools I’ve attended or the degrees I’ve attained; however, the most important thing I can share with my patients is human understanding.”
