Lumberton native Matthew S. Cummings, M.D., has joined the medical staff of Southeastern Regional Medical Center, providing care through the Southeastern Heart Center managed by Duke Medicine.
He is affiliated with Duke Cardiology of Lumberton, located at 2936 N. Elm Street, Suite 102 on the campus of Biggs Park Mall. Beginning in September, he will also treat cardiology patients two days each week in Pembroke at an office located within Southeastern Urgent Care Pembroke, which is located at 812 Candy Park Lane.
Dr. Cummings earned a bachelor’s degree from UNC Pembroke in 1998 and his medical degree from the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C., in 2004. He completed his internal medicine residency at East Carolina University/Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville, N.C., in 2007, serving as chief resident in the department of medicine there from 2007-2008.
Cummings completed a fellowship in cardiovascular diseases at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Ky., in 2011 and in advanced interventional cardiology at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, in 2012. He is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular diseases and is board eligible in interventional cardiology, all by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
His areas of special interest within cardiology include the treatment of coronary artery disease and coronary artery stent implantation, as well as the treatment of complex peripheral vascular disease, including carotid artery stenosis, upper and lower extremity disease, and renal artery stenosis. He also specializes in invasive management of venous thromboembolism and acute pulmonary embolism.
Cummings and his wife, Angela Guinn, reside in Lumberton. He is the son of Physician Assistant Earl Cummings, and Amelia Hunt, a registered nurse, both of Lumberton.
“Above all, I feel very fortunate to be home in the company of my loving family and many friends,” said Cummings. “Working with SRMC and Duke together will allow me to accomplish a longstanding ambition to improve the health status of the people of Robeson County, and provide advanced cardiovascular care to our community. I am humbled by this opportunity, and look forward to rekindling old friendships and fostering new ones. After being away for many years, it’s great to finally be home!”
