In our technological, rushed culture, much of what one could expect from a doctor’s office has gone by the wayside.

“Nowadays, it’s easier to make an appointment with the Almighty than with a gastroenterologist,” quipped one wit.

That statement might ring true elsewhere, it certainly does not in the office of gastroenterologist Daniel Cummings, M.D. in Placerville.

His may well be one of the last offices where “The Doctor is In.”

Dr. Cummings established his practice some 25 years ago. Patients enjoy the fact that when they call his office, they “get a real person.” Receptionist Brandy Morales greets everyone with a personal smile.

Dr. Cummings was fascinated by the workings of the human body’s internal organs as a young student. This, and his compassion for people, led to his pursuit of medicine. He truly enjoys what he does.

A graduate of Stanford University, Dr. Cummings received his degree in medicine at UC San Diego. He did his internship and residency at the UCSD Medical Center and his fellowship hospital work at the UC Irvine Medical Center.

He is board certified for both gastroenterology and internal medicine. A board certification means that the physician is actively improving his practice of medicine through continuing education, and is likely to have the most current skills and knowledge about medical treatment for a variety of conditions.

Dr. Cummings is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians.

Gastroenterologists specialize in diseases of the GI (gastrointestinal) tract. Upper GI conditions include ulcers and acid reflux. Lower GI conditions include Irritable Bowel Syndrome, colon cancer and Celiac disease, among many others.

The office is a “small practice,” but don’t let that fool you. Dr. Cummings has treated thousands of patients from the Placerville office. Here, the focus is truly on the health and welfare of the patient, with a human, personalized approach. Dr. Cummings and his staff actually do know their patients.

The office of Dr. Daniel R. Cummings, M.D. is located at 4300 Golden Center Drive, Suite F in Placerville. Hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed from 12 to 1:30 p.m.) For more information, call 530-344-2060.
