I liked his regret at not having time for further conversation.

February 2017
Terrance Cunningham is an extraordinary primary care provider all around. In my whole life I´ve never had a better, more stunned, kind, open minding, experienced, professional, respectful, empathetic, sympathetic, wise, humourous, engaging listener, with whom I am NEVER afraid to be honest, open, and up front with. I receive better care because he makes it easy to explain whatever my medical issues are. A Care Provider listens well, asks the right questions in the right way, and offers me the opportunity to contribute to my own health both inside and outside of Virgina Mason. He is an asset to the medical community and I honestly feel like he has had saved my life on than one occasion. Thank you, Terry for life better for 13+ years!

February 2017
Even though I had a simple case of conjunctivitis Terrance was empathetic and very thorough in exam and explanation of my issue. I felt both cared for and confident in his knowledge and expertise.

February 2017
Care provider very thorough in examining and discussing my concerns.

February 2017
the care provider was very thorough, efficient and informative treating my conditions

February 2017
I owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to both Dr. Cunningham and his nurse for their knowledge and attentiveness. Dr. Cunningham ordered a CT scan this day they ultimately caught Cancer that would have otherwise gone un diagnosed.

February 2017
Excellent care. Had never seen Terence Cunningham before, would definitely see him again.

February 2017
excellent

February 2017
My visit with Dr. Cunningham was very pleasant, informative and as it turned out, I am feeling well and am very glad Dr. Cunningham could squeeze me into his very busy schedule.

February 2017
Terry listens and cares to my problems, and makes rational choices to help troubleshoot what my physical problems may be.

February 2017
First time w/ Terence Cunningham - REALLY liked him.

January 2017
This guy is super! I purposely scheduled with him because two years ago he saw me for the very same thing and was very concerned and thorough. Also, talks to you and uses common sense. He didn´t try and put me off for another week to 10 days. He understood I knew I had an immediate problem. He is my go to other than my Internist, Dr Eintracht. I know I can have confidence in his judgement.

January 2017
Only suggestion would be for Dr Cunningham to reassure me that the medication he was providing would not impact my diabetes management.

January 2017
Very personable and engaging

December 2016
I´ve been seeing my current doctor for about 10 years now and wouldn´t change for nothing in the world

December 2016
Terry is always attentive and informative

November 2016
Terry is the best primary care provider I have ever had. He goes above and beyond to offer sincere, educated, empathetic, kindly care. He is someone I literally trust with my life. when one honestly feels this way, it´s actually rather profound. I´ve been a patient of Virginia Mason for 18 years and simply will not go anywhere else for my health care.

September 2016
ARNP Cunningham was very thorough. Though he missed 2 Rx´s to refill. He was able to do so within 24/hrs. (rather than 48 hrs./... the usual time line on other offices!)

August 2016
Not sure what I am supposed to do other than change eating habits. I am still in pain.

August 2016
terry is great and I have sent patients to him!

August 2016
Dr. Cunningham as great. Very personable. I have seen him once before. He is great.

July 2016
excellent care

July 2016
Terrence was very informative about the condition and possible long-term effects.

July 2016
I came for consult about how to deal with ongoing problem, setting out plan for which specialists to see, how to approach problem. Goal was to avoid seeing expensive specialists for no reason, or seeing them in the wrong order. He understood that I needed big picture treatment plan and was very helpful with that request.

July 2016
Terry spent more time than any doctor ever has. He was very thorough.

June 2016
Terry´s bedside manner is absolutely great. I´ve seen him a couple times now for physical symptoms occurring in conjunction with anxiety/panic conditions, and he has done an incredible job of listening to my medical concerns and taking them seriously while acknowledging the psychological factors. In the past, I have felt like I was rushed out the door without my concerns being met in such situations, but Terry leaves me feeling greatly relieved that I have the medical resources I need.

May 2016
Terence Cunningham is professional and friendly. He is on top of my medical charts, history and knows exactly what he is looking for and who he is dealing with. He remembers past history and is careful to go over any concerns or questions, takes time going over lab results, and carefully checks out any new concerns. I feel confident about my health care and decisions we talk about together and am very happy with him as my medical provider.

April 2016
very good

March 2016
although it was good, I was surprised to find that he expected me to be rechecked with him rather than my regular provider.

March 2016
Terence Cunningham always listens carefully to my concerns, takes them seriously, and finds a way to address them. He even addresses small things: when he noticed a bandaid on my hand, he asked what had happened - I explained that I had cut myself while preparing dinner the day before. He immediately checked that my tetanus vaccine was up to date! That was very impressive to me, and just one example of how focused Terence is on complete patient care.

March 2016
all experiences with the care givers at Virginia Mason have been good.

February 2016
I spent hardly any time with Terence, I could tell he was busy, and eager to move on to the next patient, he only had time to discuss a few concerns and mostly referred me to other specialists

February 2016
Good

February 2016
good

February 2016
This provider has taken care of our needs for years. He is an excellent, compassionate gentleman and is never reluctant to seek consultation if he has any doubts. I have the utmost confidence in his judgement and skills.

February 2016
I´m a veterinary technician and have a pretty good medical knowledge base it makes it easier to communicate about specific things I like mr. Cunningham and will be going back

January 2016
I have nothing but good to say about Terry Cunningham. I´m not an easy pt and he´s helped me through some very bad times always with patience and good knowledge.

January 2016
Terrence Cunningham listens and takes my concerns to heart. This is why I specifically requested he be my pcp now that Dr Dipboye has left.

January 2016
I have recommended Terrence Cunningham to family members.

January 2016
Im a brand new patient so i dont have a lot of experience with my primary care provider, However, the time we have spent together has been comprehensive, informative, reassuring, and healthy. I trust Dr. Cunningham has my best interest in mind and I trust he is a compassionate and caring individual, very capable of taking care of my health care needs and concerns.

January 2016
My provider rocks!
