Took extra care to make sure ok for outpatient surgery
Great experience from the 1st office visit to the hospital procedure right through the OT exercises to regain motion. I highly recommend this Doctor and his exceptional staff. They kept me calm and educated on what was happening.
Hand surgery successful in relieving pain and returning mobility in the finger.
The doctor was exceptional in my surgery. He had to go in a second time and did a fantastic job.
I have had surgery for this prior by a different physician. I am twice as far at this point than last time.
Dr. Cusick has performed numerous skin cancer surgeries on me over several years. He is knowledgable, thorough, and just very good.
The results of my hand surgery were very good.
Good results and recovery.
He is proactive..attention to detail and couldn't get a better bed side manner. Called on a few thousand physicians in my personal career and he has to be one of the best of the best.
Dr. Cusick always does a great job and cares about the outcome of his patients.
Dr. Cusick didn't take the time during the initial procedure to insure the cancerous skin margins were clear.
Repaired trigger finger.
Everything went smoothly for the surgery. Every step from surgery prep to post surgery was explained so I felt comfortable for the procedure. I am very pleased with the results. The collagen bump is gone and very clean minimal scar.
Doctor and staff were wonderful in making me feel at ease.
Dr Cusick is a highly experienced surgeon and provided excellent results with my surgery as well as pre and post checkups. His commitment to detail is outstanding.
Everything went very well. Staff was very pleasant.
Short wait, good result. Doug Cusick and his staff are very professional.
Dr. Cusick has done a number of things for me. He's the best!
The results were amazing and I also have Restylane around my mouth area.
It went great.
The original cast was installed in a position that hurt for two months where it should have not hurt at all... I bled for over a month.
Dr. Cusick took time to explain exactly what was involved in each procedure. Advising me how doing these would improve the damage done by moh's surgery for basil cell cancer.
Everyone was friendly and very professional. I received the results I wanted in the repairs.
I have complete faith in Dr. Cusick; his knowledge, his skill level.
Doc and staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, creating atmosphere of calm and confidence.
Short time to schedule surgery, pain free, good instructions for post surgery. Called next day to check on me.
Melanoma sounds very unsettling. Regardless, I always felt in good hands with Dr. Cusick battling my skin cancer.
Dr. Cusick is very talented. I am an Orthopedic Surgeon and the Plastic Surgeon residency wanted me to be a Plastic Surgeon. I can recognize talent and the artistic nature of his ability.
Great staff. Wonderful surgical work and very positive surgical experience.
My surgery went very smooth with no issues. I was kept informed along the way from pre-surgery to after surgery. I also met with Dr. Cusick pre-surgery and post-surgery to go over the procedure and the results. Dr. Cusick is a highly skilled surgeon that I would highly recommend.
I've had 5 procedures with Dr. Cusick and all were done with excellent results!
Dr. Cusick was very informative in explaining the available procedures and recommending what was best for me. Also, post surgery questions were answered quickly. I am extremely happy with the results.
I am comfortable with the rapport that has been built between us and that makes everything easier. Everything ran smoothly at the surgery center. The problem that I came to see Dr. about has been resolved. All of this equals highly satisfied.
I am so happy Dr. Cusick is my surgeon because he does a beautiful job and rids me of the pain I have in my hands. I tell everyone about him for any kind of help he can give them.
Dr. Cusick took the time to explain what he was doing. He cares ABOUT HIS PATIENTS. I have other problems with my thumbs and he gave me explanations what will have to be done to correct that problem.
Outcome exceeded expectations.
Very happy with the outcome. Appreciated the quick service.
Could not have been more pleased with end result.
Excellent work and very satisfied with the follow-up. Nothing but the best. Will highly recommend.
He was very knowledgeable about the whole process.
Surgery procedure explained thoroughly. Pleasant, friendly demeanor.
Dr. Cusick and his staff were extremely helpful both pre and post surgery. They are very experienced and professional but also with good interpersonal skills.
I think Dr. Cusick and his staff did a wonderful job.
Problem was resolved with minimal pain and good end results.
The nurses in the prep area were very thoughtful and attentive. And Dr. Cusick has a great bedside manner.
Still have a working thumb
Dr. Cusick is not only professional but also possesses a wonderful sense of humor which put me at ease. I had full confidence in him. His staff are friendly and professional and took the time to explain the details of surgical procedure.
I wasn't sure if I needed a lift or augmentation to be satisfied so we did the augmentation per Dr. Cusick's advice. They look great and he was spot on with size and all recommendations.
I am satisfied because the surgery corrected a situation I have been dealing with since 2009.
The scar is barely noticeable and I got all of the mobility back.
I felt Dr Cusick was not a great listener. I had to work to get my thoughts in to the conversation and he asked very few questions about what I wanted the results to look like. I had two primary asks, that the angle of my nose be improved and he leave a roundness to the tip. Although he did remove the bridge, the angle was not improved at all and the there was no roundness left to the tip at all. When I went for my follow up visit, I explained my concerns. He immediately dismissed them by saying there's nothing more that could be done. He also went so far as to say "why don't you just be grateful for the 90% improvement." It was a extremely unprofessional and disrespectful. He made it very clear he had no intention of doing any more work, regardless of my dissatisfaction with the result. I've already spoken to other doctors who say there could be further improvement. I'd love to go back and have a second procedure without having to pay to the entire amount again (as it should be) but quite frankly I don't trust his ability or his attitude enough to go back under the knife with him. It's a business of personal perception and working with a doctor who doesn't care much what your vision or goals are doesn't make sense. You hear about doctors who are the "in and out" sort, but it's different actually experiencing it. I would not recommend.
Feel better, little pain, can't wait to see the final results.
Dr. Cusick is just awesome...really respect his ability and results. Plus I love his interaction as a patient giving me reassurance and positive feedback. I have used Dr. Cusick several times and each time I am impressed with the level of expertise he and his staff represents.
Complications with the post-op period. The nurse answering the phone said there was nothing they could do and I would just have to wait until the doctor was back in the office instead of referring me to an on call physician for emergencies.
Everything went well and we really like the nurses and the doctor!!
Dr. Cusick is great. I've had numerous hand surgeries and he is wonderful.
The doctor set realistic expectations for which procedures would work best for my goals. I am more than happy with the results even with some minor hiccups in healing. I feel much more confident in my appearance than I have in decades. Everyone from Dr. Cusick himself to his office staff, to the surgical center was so kind and helpful.
This is my third hand surgery. Dr. Cusick cares for what he does and is concerned for his patients.
Satisfied with outcome of surgery. Everyone is very professional and friendly. Will recommend to others.
Dr. Cusick is thorough and listens to his patients. He corrected the issue I was experiencing and continues to further improve the flexibility.
Hurts and not healing
Doctor Cusick is prompt and caring.
We had appropriate expectations and great results.
He listened to what I wanted and didn't try to sway me. Perfect size for my body. Exactly what I wanted.
Dr. Cusick is fabulous. And the entire experience was professional and seamless. He had his own lotion ingredients and it worked great afterwards. Dr. Cusick really seems to care about how I felt and how I looked after the procedure. He seemed like he was willing to do anything to make my arm look better.
My face healed quite quickly and the scar from stitches is hardly noticeable.
Everything went very well. I was able to schedule the surgeries quickly. Great results.
Dr. Cuscik is very talented and also explains what he is doing and the desired outcome. He is the best.
He is knowledgeable, kind, and has expertise. Removed skin cancer from my face and minimized the scarring.
I believe the after care procedures should have been more thorough and organized. A patient should feel confident in knowing their after care/ wound care. I also believe the doctor shouldn't appear so rushed with his patients.
They had a sense of confidence that created a sense of peace for me. Successful surgery, cancer gone.
Dr. Cusick is approachable, thoughtful and supportive. Not condescending or arrogant. A pleasure to talk to. [Single best thing is...] The level of detail.
Great care and very little stress.
[Single best thing is...] 99% less pain now & hopefully no more pain care shots. The best, trust worthy, tells it like is, has my greatest respect for all the jobs he can do. Miracle man for me & I greatly appreciate what he did for me. Amen
Doug has a very good bedside manner and is very professional. My surgery was scheduled VERY QUICKLY after my diagnosis and consult with Dr Cusick.
Very professional doctor along with his staff.
Good follow up, very informative and good prognosis. Gave a overall view of procedure and post op care. Surgery center personnel was nice and helpful.
Dr. Cusick has a caring nature that makes it easy to trust. He has made a hard experience better to take, especially with facial scars.
Dr. Cusick did a great job of removing my Lypoma between my shoulder blades. It was a difficult area for the size of the lipoma and he had to drain it three times after the procedure on various days. Since then everything is just fine and I have healed up very well.
Having had Dr. before during a procedure performed, Dr. Cusick is very Professional, and does excellent work. I highly recommend Dr. Cusick!!
I got in to see Dr. Cusick about my Pincer Nail a day after I called for an appointment. Dr. Cusick promptly saw the urgency for surgery in a very professional manner. The surgery was scheduled in a very proficient manner and was done within 2 days of my consultation with Dr. Cusick. Follow up visits post surgery were also conducted in a timely manner. The office staff are very caring and friendly.
Dr. Cusick was direct and to the point in diagnosing my skin cancers. Was reassuring as to expected outcomes of the surgery. Follow up was timely
Great, caring and very professional office personnel. Great. great..caring...concerned and professional Dr Cusick!!
Explained in detail what the problem entailed and how to correct.
Tumor removed leaving tiny scar on forehead. Dr Cusick’s expertise put incision in forehead line so it doesn’t show. His follow up care and office staff are excellent.
Dr. Cusick is an excellent plastic surgeon. His work is immaculate. Attention to detail and his quest for perfection is reflected in the work that he does. I would recommend Dr. Cusick to everyone. [Single best thing is...] It was quick and I show very little scarring.
The service and support are always excellent from everyone in this group. I’ve never experienced any issue or problem with surgeries preformed by Dr Cusick. Always have faith in his skills and expertise.
Dr. Cusick was very informative about the differential of the pre-op facial lesion. I was awake during surgery and he was able to distract me by asking specific questions. His follow up exam and pathology review were very good.
Everything healed well and was painless because I was out during the surgery!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dr. listened to me and knew my expectations and explained everything very well. The outcome is great - I’m very pleased.
The melanoma was successfully removed.
Everything is the way he said it would be, and it's still healing.
Office staff is caring and efficient. I don’t have to talk to a computer to make appointments or ask questions. I feel comfortable asking Dr. Cusick questions about the surgery and post op care.
Successful surgery in Surgery Center. Surgical team very attentive. Easy recovery.
Dr. Cusick and his staff are wonderful. All are very friendly and knowledgeable. I've never had to wait to be seen.
Great staff and Great Doctor
Dr. Cusick is nice and informative. His office personnel is also very helpful. The surgical team was professional. Additionally I am more satisfied with my results every day!
Dr. Cusick removed several bothersome pre-cancerous moles. No more bother or wonderment about what they were.
Good job start to finish, no problems, on time. Thank you. God Bless.
The staff at the surgery center listened to my concerns and made it right. Dr. Cusick explained exactly what he was going to do. Excellent surgeon.
It was not cancer & healed well.
Excellent staff, Dr. Cusick took time to answer all my questions.
Dr. Cusick is a caring, meticulous, perfectionist surgeon. Always does very detailed follow ups. Has a very nice but business like bedside manner.
Dr. Cusick did what he said he would do at the time he said.
Great communication and great results with great follow up
Dr. Cusick has outstanding bedside manners and also is an excellent surgeon.
As I explained to Dr. Cusick, feeling comfortable and trusting your Dr. is huge! He has always given me his undivided attn & been honest, clear & concise. I know that he did the VERY best that he could.
I would not consider going anywhere else for my next trigger release surgery. First rate, caring team.
Overall a disciplined team of medical professionals.
Pleasant, respectful, competent
Dr. Cusick was most professional among all the doctors we know and although we had to drive quite a distance in MO to KS to the surgery center, we felt it was handled most professionally by all the staff there. He is personable and most of all knowledgeable of his craft and my father really was handled with the utmost care for an elderly man. Thank you.
Highly satisfied with the whole process.
Everyone was a well qualified professional and acted like it.
Pre-procedure I was assured there would be little, to no scarring. Post-procedure I have returned multiple times to the surgeon for injections to help reduce the scarring, which I believe is significant.
Just the care and compassion I received from staff was top notch.
Everyone was very professonial with their duties.
I saw Dr. Cusick in his office and he sent me for tests. I did not have to have surgery on my hand. I just had a pinched nerve in my neck. He found the problem right away!! His office staff are wonderful and so is Dr. Cusick.
The pre-op review was comforting, the procedure went well and post-op review was good.
This was my third surgery on this hand. Every person I met was wonderful. The surgery went very well and the scar is hardly visible. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and recommend this practice to everyone who might need their services.
Overall professional experience from a-z
Very professional approach -- impressive.
Dr Cusick and his office staff as well as all those at the surgery center were obviously concerned with MY well-being over all other factors. Very comfortable at all times in the procedure. This was my third surgical procedure with Dr Cusick in past several years and I remain 110% satisfied and would recommend his services to anyone needing such. [Single best thing is...] The conversation and updating during the actual procedure.
love dr Cusick
All members of the team instilled confidence in me. Very friendly and communicative.
The physician explained very clearly what was to happen during the procedure. I will not have to worry about the area become cancerous
Great listening and explanation of the entire process and follow up. It was a melanoma so just very happy to be over with it.
Very organized group.
My family has dealt with him for close to 40 yrs. Knows our whole family by name. Will ask about other members of the family when you are in the office. Willing to listen and take as much time as needed with you.
Dr. Cusick has my full confidence as a highly qualified surgeon. He has preformed cosmetic and 5 very successful medical surgical excisions over the past 3 years. Dr. Cusick's office staff and surgery center team are very professional, caring and personable. Everything he has done has exceeded my expectations.
The overall outcome completely exceeded my wildest fantasies.
Dr. Cusick and his staff were very helpful and respectful. Dr. Cusick explained my procedure in great depth and took the time to answer my questions. I would highly recommend him to others. If I need to have an other procedures completed I will be scheduling them with Dr. Cusick! My procedure was started early and I did not have any complications
No more pain in hand. I had him do surgery on my other hand 8 yrs ago . He removed a tumor from my husband's leg last year and I wanted him to do my second surgery. He is very good at what he does. His office staff is also very good. Would recommend him to anyone.
I found each person I came in contact with were kind & very helpful. My procedure seemed small comparatively, but I was treated with as much importance as any larger procedure! I appreciate each person I dealt with, to be quite personable. I also felt well prepared for my procedure.
Friendly and professional across the board. Highly competent surgeon, staff and facilities.
I had a tendon repair done on my dominant middle finger for a workman’s comp claim. From the time I was referred I have only experienced an extremely kind staff and Dr. Cusik provided excellent care. I was given realistic expectations of what to expect from surgery and for my first ever surgery i was comfortable the entire time. My recovery time back to full strength was quicker than expected and I attribute it to your practice. I was able to work without feeling like I missed a day as soon as I was back on full duty. I’m very greatful I was able to have such great use of my severed tendon again.
I can use my finger again without saying ouch!!! I felt very comfortable with everyone who assisted me.
Just overall satisfied with the docter, his office staff and the surgery center personnel who were all very friendly, helpful and professional. single best thing was that the skill of the surgeron precluded any need for a flap or skin graft from my neck to my head. Thanks so much Dr. Cusic!!!
The surgeon's skill is top grade. the success of the cancer removal depended on him and he performed at the highest level. The front office staff and nurse in the physicians office are excellent and very caring. The surgery center was amazingly clean; nice staff and comfortable for family waiting to driveme home.
With the medical field being highly scrutinized that I’ve worked in on the biz side, the professionalism of all the staff was wonderful. Having family in the medical field helps with any concerns as well ahead of time.
I liked how quickly I could be operated on. Getting everything in a folder helped to tell me exactly where to go. My insurance was not clear on something so the lady at Dr. Cusick stayed on the phone waiting for an answer. It took a while but it was explain to me fully and I was told truthful answers. I did call and ask a few questions and sent the office pics to explain something about my hand and Dr. Cusick call back soon to relieve my concern.
no more pain. there was a feeling of confidence in the doctor
Dr. Cusick is very personable. He also explains the process to the patient without overly technical medical jargon.
Overall pleased with the total process from start to finish; courteous staff; professionalism with e/one with whom we came into contact; Dr.'s were great; Surgeon an artist; reassuring; and shared important info with us to alleviate any concern re the surgery. We were statisfied with the overall experience.
I am ultra careful about being in the sun. I tell everyone about my experience and to go and get mapped!!!! Everything was explained thoroughly about the procedure, what to expect, why certain things were done. How to take care of wound when I left. I felt very cared for.
Professionalism, friendly atmosphere, and informative.
Our 15 year old had some moles removed on his face. Dr. Cusick and his staff, as well as the staff at Prairie Star were all very reassuring and made our son (and his parents) feel as comfortable as possible.
My back pain went away. . My experience was very professional. The entire process was smooth and eliminated the back pain I was experiencing for more than 20 years.
Staff and Dr. were very courteous, helpful, imformative.
No problems at all.....A +++++++ Prairie Star and Dr Cusick and staff!!!
Highly professional behavior by all parties, including a friendly attitude. Also, a good result.
I get a friendly welcome from the office staff. Dr. Cusick is thorough is explaining the problem and how it will be taken care of. He's very knowledgeable and has a good bedside manner. I trust him completely.
Very friendly professional organization with prompt answers to questions. Operation was successful and all went well. My hand feels great.
It's not the practice fault for the fail ski graft. I have other issues going on to keep the skin graft from succeeding. The doctor was up front in saying the graft might not take.
All went well. The movement I've regaind from P/T is good, but not as good as previous similar surgeries.
Everything turned out well medically. In fact, if I don't tell people about it, they don't notice anything out of the ordinary about the appearance of my ear.
Dr. Cusick is excellent in both his Doctor professionalism, and expertise with surgical results! I would recommend Dr. Cusick to anyone whom is seeking the best in their field with regards to the type of surgery Dr. Cusick performs!!Sincerely-[name] Results are what I desired!
Dr. Cusick is very talented and I am highly satisfied with the results of all the work he has done for me. My worry over a precancerous lesion on my face was ended after successful surgery.
Everyone was eager to hel me beginning with my first phone conversation with them all the way and even now. Dr. Cusick is very down to earth, friendly and caring. What an excellent surgeon. I didn't really know how bad my nose was going to look. It looks better than it did before. I am blessed by having a great surgeon. After my first surgery many years ago, I was left with a line right down the middle of my nose. Really bothered me. Always had to have makeup to cover. Now, It looks so much better I don't worry about it. If I have to run to the store, I just go!
Highly successful procedure and friendliness of all the staff. Eliminated the worry about the cyst's evolving into a serious problem.
Very Professional great Doctor /patient relationship It was successful
Dr. Cusick is very personable, down to earth and professional. The surgery center was professional, friendly, informative. The outcome was very good. Interaction with the nurses, doctors and other staff was very good.
Everyone was very friendly and seemed to be very competent. The ease of the procedure.
Surgery has intensified sciatic nerve down leg. And do not think helped at all. Dr Cusic said would not completely remove pain but sciatic is so intense a block does seem to help anymore. That is why trying alternative procedure. Darn I should have had a face lift. Joking! Just did not help me.
I like the surgeon's work and also like the Surgery Center.
My needs were met and procedures were explained. The experience was thorough. I always satisfied with the outcome from Dr. Cusick. I am not so self-conscious about the small growth on my face.
Everyone was nice. Things went well
Highly professional while being normal and interactive.
Friendly and very professional.
Quick and easy. All procedures, recovery were made clear before and after.
When meeting the surgeon prior to surgery, I was concerned about a keloid forming on scar tissue such as I pointed out on a scar on my arm. The doctor pointed to a part of the scar that doesn't look like the raised keloid portion and said that the scar from this upcoming surgery would look like that (smooth) portion. I'm concerned that my scar tissue is not flattening out as the surgeon led me to believe. I will address this with him at my final follow-up appointment next month.
Everyone put me at ease about the procedure. No one was aloof. The process from from the time I got there until I left was well coordinated and everything went well. It was covered in the survey questions. It was a good experience.
I had a very positive experience from all parties involved from the initial consultation, to the preparation for, through the day of, and in recovery. People listened and were concerned. They were very helpful. As a result, it helped make the experience all that I hoped it would be.
The doctor was compassionate and humorous. He strived to make me feel quite comfortable with the procedure.
Cancer removed. Because it is the truth
Improved my self-confidence and how I see myself. It was easy, in and out. No complications. Very good staff.
The surgery and surgeon were great...still trying to understand the reason for certain cost and deductibles
Everyone was so thorough, well organized and caring. God bless! My visits were to remove precancerous growths. It's reassuring to know that a good plan is in place to do further checkups, and take care of further such procedures, if needed.
I have been very please with Dr. Cusick and also the Surgery Center at the Shawnee Mission Hospital. No problems after surgery of the mass on my shoulder.
The outcome was excellent and post surgery visit confirms everything is going well. Compliments on my face; look younger and healthy.
Professionals acting and performing as Professionals.
Everything ran smoothly. Staff/nurse, etc. at the Surgical Center are competent and friendly to make you feel comfortable before and after the surgery. Instructions are clear and precise. Surgery went smooth and detail instructions provided for the recovery period. The atmosphere and the staff working there that make you feel comfortable and not scare of the surgery.
Friendly by all involved Just a small procedure will watch for others like it more closely
Dr Cusick and his staff shown exemplary professionalism. I have every confidence in him as a surgeon.
I explained this reason in the previous section of survey. His office manager is RUDE... and the surgery did not work... I believe he wanted to keep giving me shots to mask the pain I was having in both hands after surgery. If that was not the case he should have explained why he kept giving me these shots that cost me hundreds of dollars and helped nothing. I noticed on my billings where they charged me 25.00 for a Band-Aid that he put on where he gave the shots. I had to ask them to take off. 25.00 for a band aid, Really? and we wonder why medical cost are so high. If I would have not gone over my bills with a fine tooth comb I would have just paid that. Because my insurance company said they would NOT...
I felt comfortable and that I was in very competent, experienced hands with Dr Cusick. I also appreciated the friendly atmosphere in his office and at the surgicenter, and that trickles down from a friendly, yet always professional Doctor. Having Melanoma removed from your body is a good thing, and knowing it was done as thoroughly and with a plastic surgeon's eye & skill for making the scar look good - that is all you can ask for!
All the staff Dr.,nurses, and office staff were very caring and made me feel comfortable. It was just to see if an area was skin cancer so I was very happy when it was not.
I felt relaxed, informed., and professionally cared for during the entire procedure. Loved The Doctor's cheerful, uplifting personality.
Very satisfied with previous experiences. Doctor is open to communication with patient.
Dr. Cussick was the 3rd doctor I saw, the two before him said they will cut the finger off at the first digit, the second recommended leaving the bone exposed and the skin to heal. Dr. cussick repaired the finger and it is slightly shorter, but regainging more feeling and sensation everyday. length and feeling on my fingertip, when others had poor alternatives
I was informed about my hand and the procedure that need to be done. My follow up visits, the office personnel super friendly, the nurse that is there to assist you makes you feel very comfortable, and I'm sorry I have forgotten her name but next visit I'm going to make it a point to get to know her name. Dr Cusick is fantastic, always with a smile on his face makes you feel that he cares and you walk out of the office with a smile. My hand doing great.
Very professional and friendly I had a twitch under my right eye for 8 months it is now gone
The surgery center is very clean and the people were kind and I did not have to wait. The doctor is very caring and he explains everything before the surgery. His office staff remembers my name and is always on time except if the doctor has an emergency and then they tell you immediately. Dr. Cusick is an excellent doctor. He is very kind and he cares about his patents!
Had 2 procedures with this practice and am very satisfied with the results. Both hand results were great. I can use both hands as if there was not any problems.
Office staff was friendly, helpful and professional. The doctor was very personable and competent.
VERY SATISFIED WITH MY EXPERIENCE. PAINLESS AND RIGHT TO THE POINT. SURGERY PERFORMED, STARTED THERAPY AND NOW 7 MONTHS LATER, FEELING GREAT AND FULL USE OF HAND HAVING THE CYST REMOVED IN A TIMELY MANNER
Communication with me...from everyone....was very personal and professional. I had great confidence in Dr. Cusick and appreciated his time and explanations...and his skill and expertise.This is the only medical practice where a PERSON answers the phone whenever you call. That is to be commended.Whomever I talked to for information was very patient and willing to take time with me.Thanks to all of you for a highly satisfactory experience. For me, the single best thing was clear, detailed information about what to expect and how to care for myself during healing. I also have to say that Dr. Cusick deserves gratitude for this wonderful medical practice.
I was injured on a Monday. Saw Dr Cusick on Tuesday. Had my surgery early on Wednesday. I believe that's why there was a good out come.
It is imperative when having surgery on your face (right side cheek below eye) that the doctor and staff personnel be highly efficient in their craft. Dr. Cusick is beyond exceptional in plastic surgery. I am more than pleased with the results from having 5 surgeries in the last two years to remove the melanoma cancer from my face. He also performed carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand but compared to the surgeries on my face, my hand surgery was minor and uneventful in comparison. I would recommend Dr. Cusick to everyone. My melanoma cancer surgeries will ensure I live longer. My strength and use of my right hand after carpal tunnel surgery is 100%.
Everything with Dr. Cusick and with the surgery center was very good.
Knowledge / care from dr cusick - as well as his staff . Care and communication throughout entire experience was excellent
I had surgery on my left hand to correct scaring by dupruten's disease. It has been successful and I am happy with the results. I can use my fingers almost as I did before I had the duperton's disease start.
Doctor explained everything and I had used him before and was very satisfied. He is friendly and understanding of your needs. I hope it satisfies my future life as having a melanoma is very scary and worrisome. I was very satisfied with the scar on my arm.
All went well. Skilled durgen
Very talented, professional & friendly surgeon & staff.
The attention and concern of all whom I came in contact with. The competence of the staff and the doctor gave much confidence and reassurence even before the procedure began.
The surgery was on time, friendly staff and nurses, all went well.
Immediate recovery. Excellent result.
Accurate diagnosis of a situation that I would not aware. Very competent follow-up visits. Not a lot of pain after surgery.
It has made it so my hands do not hurt. . I have had Dr. Cusick operate on both my hands and am very satisfied with the results. He is very efficient and explains what will happen and the work you must do in rehab. Both my hands are about 100 per cent. Great experience.
The Shawnee Mission Surgery Center on Prairie Star is an excellent facility - I especially liked that EVERY person I came in contact with introduced themselves immediately.The waiting area was clean, quiet and inviting.My surgeon and his staff are efficient, friendly and answered my many questions in a respectful manner.
Skin cancer spot gone and handled . Very professional in every way. My doctor was great and explained everything very well
I was very satisfied with service and attitude also I think this entire group of professionals make life difficult for the rest of the medical world keep it up Should I ever again need to get repaired this team will be the place to go to
Dr. Cusick is so good. I enjoy everything he has done for me on several surgeries. The Surgerycenters have been very good. Everything has gone very well. No problems since my surgery.
Got rid of the pain! Very happy. Dr. Cusick is a great communicator and has excellent bedside manor.
I have had several surgeries with this surgeon. He is very good! It has made a a noticeable change in my appearance! Al for the better!
Communication ,and the friendliness of everyone at the hospital and Dr. Cusicks office. Communications was the key here. And obviously Dr. Cusick is a highly trained professional. Witch is all that really matters to me.
No cancer on my face. Dr Cusick and the Jo Co Surgery center were both so good
The surgery went perfect..... hard to tell it was done...
The friendliness and caring of those taking care of me. Of course, a successful surgery was nice as well! I was just very satisfied with all aspects of my experience from the doctor, to the nurses and front end staff, overall communication, friendliness and general caring of all involved.
Dr has preformed 3 surgeries on me and everyone of them were the best. The helpfulness of the staff and doctor.
Everyone is very friendlly and courteous. they will answer any questions you might have. they make you feel at home. I have had about 20 procedures with these people. If i wasn't satisfied i would find someone else.
Dr Cusick is the best. Great bedside manner I cannot say enough good things about him. He is one of the best individuals I have ever met and it carries over to his practice. Staff is great and helpful
The Doctor was knowledgeable, told me exactly what he was going to do, what to expect afterwards. It all happened exactly as he said it would, The staff in his office was friendly got me in and out quickly.
It has improved my appearance greatly. I feel so much better about myself. . Dr Cusack is a talented and highly competent surgeon. His work is flawless as a plastic surgeon. He is compassionate and dedicated to the well being of his patients. He is the best in the city!
The process seemed seamless. Dr. Cusick's skill and bedside manner are exemplary. His office staff is very friendly and helpful as well.
I can hardly tell where the surgery was on my face; he was also very informative about what I could expect after surgery re: pain. So nice and gently and caring. Dr. Cusick explained why the surgery was necessary, how it would be done, why it had to be done and was very friendly before and after surgery. He also told me what to look for if it would return; overall he was a very nice and caring man and Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone needing surgery. He is exceptional in every way.
General feeling I was being cared for. Fixing problem.
Since my procedure was an unexpected injury, the use of my had is most important. I have two other family members who had procedures by Dr. Cusick.The staff has always been friendly.If Dr. Is running late because of surgery they let you know in plenty of time, and give you the option to change your appointment if needed.
Overall kindness, understanding of all the staff A lot less pain, numbness and able pick up my grandkids
The pre-surgery consultation, and post and follow up sessions all extremely informative and interactive.

Large lypoma removed on back thus aesthetically looking better and worry free that it was not cancer. Procedure explained by Dr. in understanding way including what to expect in recovery. Outpt. surgery center very organized and people involved in my care took care of getting me ready for the procedure in a professional manner. Over all experience very good

Results have turned as or better than expected.
Felt very welcomed and cared for by each person I interacted with on surgery day. . It was a totally pleasant experience, as much as surgeries could be expected to be pleasant.
After I was diagnosed with melanoma, Dr. Cusick quickly made time for my surgery. Despite having to remove a significant size piece of flesh, I felt that discomfort and scarring were minimal. There was no collateral damage to tendons, etc. I have been treated very kindly and professionally by Dr. Cusick and his staff as well as surgical center staff.
No pain every day with the use of my thumb thank you again. Everyone from the staff to the doctor very professional and very comfortable going into surgery
Although the recovery time for the carpal tunnel took longer than I thought (8 months of physics therapy) I no longer have any problems and am pain free. The docter was very personal and friendly and took the time to explain to me what he was going to do and what to expect. I have since recommended him to many friends. The whole experience was awesome. More importantly the results were great.
Everything on day of surgery could not have been better. Excellent surgeon and surgery facility
I have no complaints about any part of my care. Surgery was a long time ago and some of the questions I could not remember.
Dr Cusick!! All involved were just very professional and obviously dedicated and concerned for the PATIENT. More should practice this way.
It made me feel like a person and not just a number. My entire experience was very good! I have had other surgeries and was not keep informed about what was going to happen. The doctor and nurses were extremely helpful! Best surgery experience that I have ever had!
I've had a number of surgeries performed by Dr. Cusick at the Surgery Center. Each time the outcome was what was explained and expected. I was especially pleased that I've never had a problem with getting an infection or not having full mobility once the incision had healed. Follow-up treatment was also excellent.
The doctor was caring and secure and all staff were great. They all seem to care about the patient
The Dr, nurses, everyone that I had contact with, they treated me like I mattered, my daughter was with me they even addressed any concerns she had, even on follow up visits, it was as though they had known you forever, never as just another patient. I have recommended them to others. I say keep up the good work. Thank you
Everything was wonderful and I couldn't have asked for more. Dr. Cusick and all of his staff were knowledgeable, approachable, positive and professional. The pre-op education was complete and the post-op follow up was thorough.
Extremely satisfied with Dr. Cusic his expertise as well as his bedside manner.
The high quality and interaction of each person in this practice before, during and after the procedure. Everyone's care and consideration was highly professional and caring.
The most friendly and knowledgeable surgeon I have ever went to. Did an excellent job. Great personality and skills.
Great doctor and staff
They were very encouraging and understanding of why I wanted this done... It has changed my life!!
Dr. Cusick told me exactly what he was going to do and explained it thoroughly as he always does.
Harley demonstrated professionalism on all levels in all departments
Dr Cusick was very professional and the staff at the surgical center was excellent
There were absolutely no complications despite surgery being performed on forearm where I assume collateral damage to tendons/ligaments would have posed long term problems. I followed detailed at home care instructions provided by doctor/staff and by surgicenter nurse. My surgery was quickly scheduled and I was told what to expect. Surgeon and staff were professional, respectful and friendly. I really felt as though my case was the priority even with the office staff - not just another patient to deal with in a busy medical practice.
Excellent doctor who has taken great care of me in the past.
everyone was very professional. The staff at Dr. office were so pleasant and helpful. Dr. Cusick is very pleasant and professional. I was happy about the results of the surgery.
I had a melanoma cancer about the size of a 50 cent piece removed from below my right eye. It took two surgeries. The first surgery removed the cancer and the second surgery created the safety margin required for this type of cancer. Both times Dr. Cusick and Prairie Star Surgical Center performed the operations. Dr. Cusick outlined in detail what his course of action would be and what I could expect. The surgical center also made sure I was comfortable and informed on what they would do and where I would be for recovery. Most important they were on a timely schedule both times. I was very apprehensive and nervous about my cancer but because they kept me informed, they made everything I was facing EASIER!
I was thrilled with the doctor and staff. They were fun and let me know how everything was going to go and that's the way it went. Really liked Dr. Cusick and the girls in his office are wonderful......
Very professional and caring.
The surgery center was very clean and the atmosphere very calm. The staff was caring and very kind!!
Doctor and staff so nice and friendly, very good sense of humor and yet professional and efficient-a comforting experience when faced with skin cancer. We would definitely recommend the practice to friends and family!
Dr. Cusack was very easy to talk to and I felt that he was extremely knowledgeable. The post operative care was impressive as well as the results of the surgery. Post-op care was just as important as the surgery itself which I feel that the doctor wasn't just about let's do surgery'""
All the staff was very caring and where able to answer any questions I had.
I have never had anything like this, myself & my family were treated great & were kept well informed, given answers to any thing we asked.
Every one was pleasant and very helpful during the and post surgery. They all acted very knowledgable, very concerned with how I felt and did their best to make me feel comfortable and well informed as to what to expect during and after the procedure.
My overall experience was not stressful in the least.
The surgeon was very disrespectful and did not take the time to accurately describe the surgery and my recovery. During the post op appointment, the surgeon was too busy to answer any of my questions.
Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I was very comfortable with the care and concern from everyone. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
I was told exactly what to expect, all my questions were answered, all follow up appointments and activities were carried out as expected. No surprises and excellent results.
No scars anywhere.
every thing went as well as it could.

Dr. Cusik and staff were very informative, kind, and reassuring.

Dr. Cusick was very respectful and did an excellent job on this life changing experience! His nurse Colleen is also amazing and was always so sweet! I was pleasantly surprised with the care I received at the surgery center as well as the bouquet of flowers that were sent to me! Thank you for making my experience a great one!

Overall all aspects of surgery everything about the whole procedure I was at ease and very confident in the surgeon and whole medical staff
Dr. Cusick and his staff were very friendly and helpful. The sense of urgency coupled with the high level of customer care was the best I have seen. Dr. Cusick has a very effective interpersonal style that makes you feel genuinely cared for and not just one of the patients". I will recommend Dr. Cusick to anyone needing hand surgery or cosmetic surgery. "
All the nurses Drs. and medical staff were very caring and the atmosphere was very calm.The surgery was on time. Check in person was sweet with no waiting. Waiting area was comfortable.

I was highly impressed with the professionalism and courtesy of everyone that attended me during my surgery experience I was extremely impressed when the nurse was trying to start my IV and missed on the first try. She went and got someone else to start the IV. Thank you for your kindness Dr. Cusick, thank you for respecting me and my family.
Satisfactory removal and plastic surgery to fill what was removed. Very confident & competent staff. Able to go home fairly soon after coming out from under anesthesia. No after-affects from the anesthesia. Follow-up in office excellent.
Loved the practice ! Everyone was highly professional and very helpful. They made me feel comfortable and that I was important to them. I really can't say enough about how much I liked the Doctor and all his staff. They were all extremely kind ! Dr. Cussick is absolutely wonderful! He very gifted at his job, has a great bedside manner and just really cares. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a procedure. You will be extremely happy you chose this practice. I plan to use them again if I choose to have any further needs.
Dr Cusick and his staff were very professional and maintained a friendly environment. Good team effort.
The surgeon, nurses and staff were kind, helpful and cheerful both at the office and the surgery center. The follow ups at the office showed a real concern that everything came out OK.
Wonderful doctor and nurses who made me feel very comfortable. Thanks for that!
Lipoma removal from right temple. Doctor and staff were highly capable and treated me with care and respect. Procedure was an unqualified success and may have saved a key facial nerve.
Dr Cusick is to me a highly intelligent man and I have a lot of confidence in him.
Dr Cusiak and staff are easy to schedule appointments with, discuss surgical options and post op visits. He is very thorough in his discussions about the procedure and outcomes. I have come back to Dr Cusiak for 3 different procedures and looking into my fourth. As a gastric bypass patient, I had lost over 140 lbs and needed the problem areas taken care of. I respect and appreciate him and his staff for their knowledge, friendliness and compassion.
Overall this has been a wonderful experience. The doctor listened and treated me with respect and didn't rush off to the next patient. Having surgery on the face is a scary prospect, and Dr Cusick has a way of putting you at ease. I'm pleased with the outcome and will highly recommend him.
Very satisfied with Dr Cusick.
I felt confident my team would take excellent care of me. They all knew what they were doing and Practiced with the utmost confidence.
He is a board certified surgeon. I had lots and lots of loose skin in the abdominal area. He was able to give me a nice flat stomach. I felt he was very caring. His office staff is very professional and was able to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend him to everyone who asks.
Dr Cusick is very kind and takes his time in explaining to you your best options...makes you feel very comfortable and is excited about my positive changes as much as I am in my body. Definitely will recommend to family & friends and return when my finances will allow me for additional procedures!
Everyone with the Dr. Cusicks practice is professional, knowledgeable and very Kind!!!
Dr. Cusick took the time to ask my for specific situation both personally and financially since I have no insurance. He then found the most econimical and useful approach to provide surgery on an outpatient basis. This resulted in not only sucessful surgery, but he did not charge me for a follow up afterward. His staff was terrific, knowledgable and mor than helpful to me as well. Dr. Cusick made me feel that he was both professional and personally involved with me as a patient. I value our relationship.
The entire team was exceedingly respectful and the timing of how quickly I could get in for the surgery after making my decision to have it was very accommodating. (I'm an 'immediate gratification girl'....)
I enjoyed all of the staff, as well as Dr. Cusick.
I felt very comfortable with the dr, and was very easy to talk to and tell him what I wanted, and I got the exact results I wanted. The nurses at the surgerey center took great care of me and made sure I always had what I needed in a nice-friendly way. The girls in the office were always friendly and informative. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience!! Thank u!!!!
Repaired facial, lip & above my eye lacerations. A very caring, calm & clean facility. Doctor's, nurses & all staff seemed very confident, concerned & light hearted - lightened the mood of a surgurical situation. It can be intamidating & scary at times. Very relaxed. Both of my surgical experiences (one planned & one an emergency) were handled very well.
Dr. Cusick and his staff were wonderful!! I am very happy with the procedure I had done. For my own personal experience what make Dr. Cusick stand out from other cosmetic surgeons is the fact that I had no idea of what size I wanted for breast implants, and he did exactly what I had invisioned, I remember him saying he liked to keep you looking in proportion! And for that reason I have given his name out to many! Thanks for everything!
Everyone was really nice, helpful, respectful and courteous.
First, allow me to say Dr. Cusick performed, over three surgeries, abdominoplasty, breast lift, bilateral inner thigh lift, and bilateral brachioplasty. Dr. Cusick and his entire staff were ALWAYS very kind to me and cheerfully addressed all my pre/post-surgery questions and concerns. Dr. Cusick adapted post-surgery protocols and procedures to fit my needs and comfort level, i.e. my need to workout. He never took a cookie-cutter" approach, and that meant very much to me. All the girls recognized me and knew me by name. I actually came to enjoy my office visits. Since my surgeries, other doctors have seen my scars, said how remarkable they looked, and asked me who my surgeon was. When I told them it was Dr. Cusick, they were not surprised. I could not have selected a better surgeon. I'm still thrilled with the results, and have not gained an ounce of weight. If/when I save enough money I will happily return. my unending thanks and admiration go out to Dr. Cusick and his staff!"
Not only am I 110\% satisfied with the results of my surgery but I am very pleased with the entire staff at Dr. Cusick's office. I knew what to expect at every turn and him and his staff were there to answer any and all of my questions. Dr. Cusick would never sugar coat the surgeries or what I would experience afterwards. I always felt completely comfortable, not only with my latest procedure but also with the previous procedure I had done in his office. I will always recommend Dr. Cusick to friends and family, I know he can be trusted.
