Dr. Cunniff appeared very concerned about my care and outcome. He spent time with me looking at my MRI and addressed all my concerns regarding its results.UofU Patient November 18, 2013
I tried to be as informed as possible at the follow up appointment to ensure I knew I was making the best decision for myself. I was sorely disappointed in the care I recieved from the care provider. He was unwililng to answer my questions and explain why he wanted to pursue to course of treatment. He did not follow up in a timely manner and was defensive about my questions and said, "I was a chiropractor before I became a dr. I know that won't help." There were less invasive options and it seemed like all he wanted to do was shoot me with steroids and send me on my way without treating the source of inflammation. He was rude and not willing to listen to my concerns, i would absolutely never see him again, or recommend him to anybody else.UofU Patient November 18, 2013

I waited for far too long, then when he finally made the trip in, he spent maybe 5-7 minutes and administered the same test within 1-2 minutes.UofU Patient September 21, 2013

I was exceedingly happy with meeting and working with Dr. Cunniff.UofU Patient August 05, 2013
excellent provider in every way - competent, friendly, inspires confidenceUofU Patient August 05, 2013
I told the doctor that I had stopped taking my sleeping medication and he acted upset and suspicious that I was taking it. He asked if I got that from another doctor because he does not recommend taking that with the pain medication. I told him my PCP's name again, but this medication has been listed in EPIC since I began seeing him. I am a little concerned about that.UofU Patient May 01, 2013
