I had been a patient with Dr. Christine Palermo for several years. I was sad to lose her as my PCP but I am happy for her and her promotion. I chose Dr. Cunningham for my physician when I was given names of several of the physicians and I am delighted to have her as my PCP now. She made me comfortable, talked with me and really took time to get to know me while doing her job during my physical. I highly recommend her because of her personal manner with me and I am sure with her other patients. Even with the high demands on her, she took time with me and made me a partner in my care as Dr. Palermo did.

I just asked Dr. Cunningham to be my preferred care provider and she agreed. I really like her.....she´s very informative. I´m quite comfortable with her. Dr. McDonald has been my PCP for over 30 years so the switch to her is a big step to me but she´s very good and I know I´m going to be happy with my decision to switch to her.

They have educated and empowered me over the past few weeks and continue to help monitor my care and progress. having been diagnosed two years ago with Type ll Diabetes, this the best informed I´ve ever been on just what that means. This life altering. I already feel so much better. if I can support them by providing a patient testimonial please let me know.

To soon to say whether or not I would recommend Dr. Cunningham. However, my first visit with her exceeded my expectations. She was kind, respectful, and took the time to listen and address my concerns. This is the second Dr. I´ve had at VM and I have to say I´m off to a great start with her and that was not the case with the first one. Thank you Dr. Cunningham! You are appreciated.
