Dr. Hill did a great job!
My experience in Dr. Hills office was excellent.
The entire experience was great with Dr. Cook. Very little pain after surgery, recovery was way better than I was expecting. I would recommend him without any reservation.
The Best Friendliest staff I have ever had to deal with
I was having gallbladder issues that sent me to the ER. Twenty minutes after I was admitted Dr. Gill was in my room discussing how my gallbladder needed to be removed, which it was a few hours later. He was very kind for my plight and put my heart at ease that this was the right direction to go. Several weeks later, I am feeling so much better. Dr. Gill took care of the very thing that was creating so much pain! Thank you, Dr. Gill, for your expertise, kindness, and thoroughness..
Dr. Karl Francis and his staff are very caring and anxious to address the problem and help you to the road of recovery. The office is comfortable and there is very little delay in being seen. All questions were answered to complete satisfaction.
Dr. Cook and his staff were warm, friendly and very efficient. The office staff were amazing, the hospital experience was excellent. I could not have been more pleased.
During my 20+ years working in healthcare I have worked with physicians throughout the U.S. Based on my experience, I consider Dr. Gill to be an extraordinary doctor. His knowledge of medicine is deep, broad and current. Very importantly, he has excellent communication skills. He explains things clearly in understandable terms and is a caring listener. It was obvious to me that he really cared about me and wanted to do whatever he could to help me. I recommend Dr. Gill without reservation.
Dr. Cook is an excellent, knowledgeable doctor!! He has a great bedside manner and genuinely cares about his patients. I trust him to take care of my medical concerns. Thank you for being the best of the best!!
Dr. Cook and his staff are awesome. They were great during my surgery and recovery while in the hospital. He visited me everyday to see how I was doing. He took the time to talk with me and wife to answer any questions and concerns we had. I would recommend Dr. Cook to anyone needing his expertise.
Dr. Cook and staff are the best. Always friendly with you. They take the time to listen to you. They help you understand what is going to happen.
Dr. Gill is an amazing surgeon. He did emergency surgery on my husband and basically saved his life. Both his skill and bedside manner are the best you could ever want. He truly is an exceptional Doctor who really cares about his patients and does everything he can to make sure that the outcome of their surgery is the best possible. We would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed his skills and would use him ourselves again if we needed too.
As far as skill goes, he is great! But if bedside manner or a personable follow up is important to you, choose another qualified physician.
Dr. Cook has performed surgery on my wife and I several times and they have all been good experiences. They were all successful. He and his staff are very professional people and are enthusiastic about helping the patient get the best care possible.
Easy to talk to. Answered all my questions, in a way i could understand. Was able to schedule my surgery quickly. Did an excellent job. Highly recommend.
I work know in the medical field and EVERYONE knows he is the best! Doctors want him for their patients! Nurses will tell you he is the best of any surgeon in Utah County! He is the nicest guy ever,! His NP Jory is amazing. You will not get any better surgeon than Cook.
Dr. Cook and his staff have been great during my surgery and recovery. In the hospital, Dr. Cook and/or his PA would visit me each morning to see how I was doing that day. They are responsive to my concerns when I call or go in for an appointment. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cook to anyone needing his skills.
I highly recommend Dr. Gill to all in need of an excellent doctor. Why? Because of the keen expertise and wisdom he possessed in his profession as a physician and in how he demonstrated these attributes when I had to have gallbladder surgery. His quality expertise was evident in the very successful and effective operation he performed. I am healing up just fine and am free of my now deceased, beastly gallbladder and all his little friends. His bedside manner and that of all his staff was superb.
He took care of my appendectomy smoothly and without any further issues. He also visited me personally early the next morning to see how I was doing. That meant a lot since I had just gone through a scary experience. Would highly recommend him
Dr. Hill performed emergency surgery on my husband, Allen Brasher on June 27, 2017 in Mountain View hospital in Payson, Utah. He was very professional, knowledgeable and explained every thing that was going on with my husband and what needed to be done. It was a necessary procedure which I believe saved my husband's life. Dr. Hill came out after surgery and explained that my husband had a perianal rectal abscess and was sepsis. We cannot thank him properly for all he did. Thanks Dr. Hill.
Excellent care, answered all questions and concerns. Office staff and PA's were outstanding.
Great office staff & great doctor!!
All staff members were patient and respectful. All my questions were thoroughly answered. This includes office visits as well as the surgical process.
Thorough and listens to my concerns. Answered all of my questions and then some. I appreciated that he taught me about my anatomy and what my surgery would entail including what would happen AFTER surgery.
I had a serious accident and felt I was given great care and advice. I was impressed that the nurses respected him and had great confidence in him.
Dr. Sheffield took out my daughters appendix when she was 4 yrs old. He was kind, compassionate and explained things very patiently.
Dr. Clark Sheffield performed emergency surgery on me after I showed up at the ER very septic with a perforated bowel. This was just the beginning of a series of appointments and surgeries, and at every turn both Dr. Sheffield and his entire office staff have been both ultra professional and a pleasure to work with!! My first encounter with Dr. Sheffield was a worse case scenario and through his good judgement and skills as a surgeon he made the absolute most of the situation!
Dr Cook is wonderful! He took time to listen to my concerns and talked to me about what treatment he thought would be best. I would recommend him to anyone!
I had a pretty routine surgery performed by Dr. Gill on May 25, 2017. Although the surgery was routine, my recovery; unfortunately, was not. This was not due to anything Dr. Gill did, it just was the luck of the draw, I guess. My situation called for much more care and concern for Dr. Gill, and he exceeded every expectation. There was a morning that I had to call his cell phone at 7:00 am, he answered...there was a night I had to call his cell phone at 11:00 pm, he answered. I am grateful
Dr Garry refuses to see me to answer simple post op questions and concerns. Not about money, not about insurance. His reply is go to the ER. Really? go to the ER for common post op questions??
Not only is Dr. Francis competent and timely at getting one into surgery and everything fixed up splendidly, but I found him very caring as well. When I was in tears from gall bladder pain, he immediately scheduled surgery. His staff also took great care of me since I was an emotional wreck from the pain. Love them all!!! Recovery is going very well, and I'm so happy to be pain free!
I had a very positive experience with Dr. Cook. He was nothing but a professional and highly skilled.surgeon I would recommend him to anyone in need of a General Surgeon.
I have had a rough go I had 50+ stomach and lower prosedurs and almost bleed to death 7 times. Thanks to dr cook I'm in no pain and I'm only 3 weeks out of a billrothII THIS MAN SAVED MY LIFE.
Dr. Cook is the best! He is my first choice for a surgeon and I tell everyone I know who is a general surgery candidate that he should be their first choice.
Dr Cook took time to listen and to evaluate what might be happening. He made suggestions of other treatments to try and test to have run to make sure he would be able to address the problem and not just symptoms He was understanding and patient . He treated us like person and not a number. He has a great staff. They are helpful and kind.
Dr. Cook is a dedicated and amazing surgeon and physician. I have had more than one surgery because of a recurring health issue. My quality of life is very good because of his exceptional care and expertise each time. I trust him. He also has a very competent and caring staff.
Peculiar stomach pain led to getting an ultrasound, revealing a large gallstone. With the prognosis being to remove the gallbladder, my wife — a retired nurse of 12 years — recommended Dr. Cook, having worked with him for years. She always appreciated his level of care and expertise. I did indeed experience a high level of care from Dr. Cook and team. The process was efficient and the recovery without issue, aside from the expected discomfort and pain post-op. #trust #confidence #professional
Very Friendly, Professional. At the top of his field. Very successful surgery.
Dr. Francis was recommended by an ER physician who said he'd trust him for any surgery he may need. I called and was able to schedule a visit for next day. I met with a very qualified nurse, a PA student, and Dr. Francis. I had multiple question that were answered to my satisfaction. I was most impressed with being able to schedule my surgery within the week. My surgery was performed without complication. Outstanding physician with outstanding staff. Start to finish I am most satisfied.
On a Sunday afternoon I needed emergency surgery for a very unexpected hernia. First impressions are so important and immediately on meeting Dr. Gill, I felt confident and at ease about having this procedure done by him . He asked very clear questions, listened to me & explained the process in detail making sure I understood my options, his concerns and thoughts. He was light hearted, funny yet he made me understand the seriousness of the situation. Truly a great surgeon and kind man.
Dr. Francis did an amazing job and I am very pleased. He has a very inviting and friendly demeanor. My recovery was fairly easy and I have minimal scarring from the incision. He did an excellent job and his nurse is beyond words amazing! If I need anything done in the future, I will certainly be going to see Dr. Francis.
Very professional and helpful from the beginning to after the surgery. Staff was helpful and Dr. Cook was very patient, kind and informative throughout the entire process.
Dr. Hill is kind, intelligent, and straightforward in his patient communication. He also takes time to listen to the patient's questions and provides answers in understandable terms.
I have nothing but the BEST to say about Dr. Cook. He has literally saved my life more than once. He loves, He cares, He has exercised his God given talents to the max. As long as he is practicing, I'll go to nobody else. I love the staff as well. They are SO nice and professional.
My experience with Dr. Cook was terrific. Both he and his staff were attentive to my concerns, and helped me feel comfortable with the surgical decision that needed to be made in my behalf.
I was very impressed with the knowledge and nice personalities of the whole staff at Doctor Cook's office! They made me feel very at ease and when I called with a question I got it answered right away!
The best advice I received when looking for a general surgeon was to go to Dr. Cook. It was pretty unanimous from several friends in healthcare. Thanks to his office, Jordy and all the staff at Central Utah Surgery for an outstanding outcome.
Could not be better.
This review is long overdue. Dr. Cook is an amazing doctor. My son was super nervous to get some moles removed and Dr. Cook took the time to explain the procedure and be a friend. Even when my son got anxious about the needles just before surgery, he was very patient and kind. The surgery went as planned.Dr. Cook did a fantastic job on the surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cook!
Great doctor! He removed my gallbladder Thursday and he just has this energy he gave off that made me happy and I felt like he cared about how I was feeling, I highly recommend him
If I could give a zero stars, I would. I would never recommend meeting with Dr. Sheffield or anyone at Utah Surgical Associates. They will over charge you and never help you resolve your problem or issue.
He was ok but very rushed and didn't give much info nor ask any questions regarding the need for surgery. He did however asked a couple of times if I had questions..hard to have any questions when I wasn't given a whole lot of info from him. Thankfully he had a P.A student who took time with me asking questions & giving info about the need for the procedure. His nurse was beyond wonderful, she was so helpful in getting the paperwork done, the surgery scheduled & setting it up with correct center
I visited Dr. Hill after being diagnosed with a hernia and lipoma. Dr Hill had already reviewed my diagnosis before I arrived and then conducted an examination to confirm the findings. He was thorough and took genuine time to explain the issues and procedures. The surgery was scheduled promptly at Utah Valley where the staff there were equally amazing. No one wants surgery, however Dr. Hill and team were professional, accommodating and caring - I highly recommend this doctor and staff.
My first surgical consult in Utah was with Dr Cook. From that moment forward everyone I come in contact with tells me how lucky I am. Dr Cook exudes genuine goodness. He does not talk down to you and listens intently. He has a great working relationship with his practitioners and that creates a positive experience from start to finish.
Dr Cook is friendly, haso great bed side manners and is the best surgeon I have ever had. He listens and is genuinely concerned for his patients.
Everything went well. My questions were answered. The surgery went well and the pain management was good. I don't want to have another operation, but I would go back to Dr. Cook if one was needed.
I had a hernia operation. Dr. Francis explained the procedure very well. After surgery I recovered very quickly. If I'm feeling great one week after surgery I can only attribute that to a very good surgeon!
I would highly recommend Dr. Francis to family or friends!
On December 29, 2015 I got very sick because of a pancreatitis and i had to be hospitalized. There was where i meet Dr, Brian D. Gill. He was and is the Angel of my life, with his knowledge he save my life. Thanks to God that guide him to fix what was wrong on my body. I had two surgeries, the two of them were life treating procedures. But like i said God took Dr. Gill's hands and brain to help me have my health back. He is an excellent human being. I always going to be Thankful for what he did
Very professional and did a great job with surgery. Office staff was also very helpful.
I feel like Dr. Cook really wants to do what is right for the patient. I feel like he takes the time to listen and address my concerns. One evening when I was concerned about something post-surgery, he called me back within 10 minutes. I have total confidence in his opinion and instructions. I am very happy with the results of my last surgery. His finish work is excellent and rivals that of the best plastic surgeon. His office staff is great and friendly too.
Dr. Cook is as close to perfect as one can get. He is an amazing physician and even a more amazing person! He truly cares about and for each and every one of his patients. It is evident to everyone that knows him that he is a physician because he truly loves what he does and genuinely loves to help people.
Thank you Dr. Cook
Dr. Cook and his NP's are the best in the business. I went in for triple hernia repair. The team addressed all my concerns without me feeling rushed and didn't make me feel like I was just another warm body through the door.
Post surgery I have had significantly less pain than anticipated. The repair was more extensive than originally thought, but Dr. Cook corrected everything with expert precision and care. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TEAM!!!
Dr. Cook was very accommodating and understanding. He was able to work me in to his very busy schedule to accommodate my window of opportunity.
I'm a 60 year old male that made his wife go to Dr. with him. I had to get surgery before insurance ended. After meeting the nicest staff we met the Doctor and were instantly comfortable enough we were all laughing. Dr. Cook done my triple hernia surgery the next day and after a 110 mile trip home I was amazed how good I felt already. We tell everyone how lucky we were to have him do my surgery. This is one really good and really cool Dr. Mark M highly recommends Dr. Cook to everyone.
I had concerns with my insurance coverage and he got me approved for surgery the next day!
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Sheffield and appreciated the time he spent with me explaining my options. He helped me make an informed design on whether or not I should move forward with surgery. He never seemed rushed, or in hurry to get to his next appointment. He was very personable and willing to answer any questions I had.
Dr Francis let me make choices when it came to my care and recovery. Very agreeable and supportive. Excellent Care!
I cannot express my gratitude enough to Dr Francis enough.
He made my son feel comfortable as my son was so afraid of being seen by a new Dr even though we were referred tp him by Dr Lauret.
Thank you Dr Francis for caring!
NP Christy was the BEST!??
Laparoscopic inguinal hernia and everything went very well!
Dr Cook did a fantastic job. He was ver professional, and both the surgery and recovery went far better than expected. I visited his office twice and never had to wait long. I also enjoyed that all pre-work and questionnaires were conducted ahead of time and online.
He did great work repairing my hernias. I never had to wait around in his office. He was on schedule and ready for me at the time of my appointment.
Fast and efficient. Was fine to explain things to me and made sure I got taken care of.
Dr. Cook is an excellent surgeon and I would highly recommend him to anyone having surgery in his field of expertise. He knows how to communicate with patients and will answer any questions asked. Overall great doctor and great guy!
He is knowledgeable and skilled. He is also efficient and personable, and his office staff and nurse practitioners are also. I would recommend Dr. Cook to anyone needing surgery or a consultation about possible surgery.
I had two hernias repaired by doctor Hill. The worst hernia was fixed without any issues, no pain 2 months after surgery. The other hernia now hurts far more than both the hernias prior to surgery. I went in and even though the pain has not gotten better his advice is to wait and see if it gets better on its own. I doubt this outcome as it has not improved at all over the last 2 months. He was running behind on the day of surgery so I hope that this did not play a role in my outcome.
Dr. Francis was all business, efficient and had excellent tissue handling in my surgical repair of a hernia. I respect his skill set.
Dr. Cook and his staff take the time to make sure you understand what is going on I never felt rushed or that if I asked a question that the time to make sure I understood the answer would be taken.
No one wants to be in a moment of needing emergency surgery, but in such an event it's nice to know you are in skilled, and capable hands. Dr. Gill literally saved my life, and the life of my unborn baby in a moment of emergency. I knew I was in good hands, and was even more impressed by his kind and encouraging bedside manner. He was thorough, attentive, and put me at ease in a very stressful moment. I would recommend him over and over again! The follow-up was
I have been blown away by Dr. Gill and his staff. He's treated me with the utmost respect and really listened to my concerns. He takes the time to go over histories and discuss them. If he doesn't understand, he will ask for more clarification and never runs off of his own assumptions. He performed my surgery (Hiatal hernia repair with a Nissen Fundoplication) wonderfully and I am healing up well. He also has a great bedside manner. I would highly recommend him and his office.
He was very caring and made sure he answered all my questions.
The good: He was knowledgeable about the issue. He had experience and was able to describe things.
Not quite as good: He seemed a bit rushed, as if he was anxious to move on to the next patient.
Saved my life!
Dr. Gill is an amazing surgeon and an amazing person--it can be difficult to find both. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. He is thorough and detailed in both his communication and his procedures. Dr. Gill really cares about his patients. He goes above and beyond many other doctors I've known to ensure the safety and comfort of all he works with. I never doubted that I was in good hands with Dr. Gill. He has an excellent and kind bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Cook was very competent and caring. His assistants were exceptionally good at listening to my problems and answering my questions.
Dr. Gill is very knowledgable and explains the procedure you are having before and after the surgery. He is very kind, has a very silly, personable bedside manner. He genuinely cares and will do anything to assist you in your worries before and after your surgery. He is very neat and organized and well as his office and office staff. I would recommend Dr. Gill to anyone and feel confident that they would get the same treatment. Thank you Dr. Gill and staff for the wonderful experience.
Very excellent surgeon and doctor in the hernia speciality. I was referred to him by someone that worked with him in the past and referenced his awesome talent with the speciality of hernia and general surgery. Was so glad to have met Dr Francis as he is straight forward and very knowledgeable with a lot of experience with successful surgeries. I also appreciate how he shares his talents with upcoming medical students to help them learn great technique and process
DR. Cook is one of the very best Doctors I have had. He is very skilled and has good "bedside manners" also!
I had a hernia surgery. His staff is very kind and caring. The procedure was quick without any complications. I totally recommend him!
He is very caring and concerned with your health. He actually sits and listens to what you have to say, and doesn't discount anything you say. He is a wonderful doctor!!
Dr. Francis talked to my son like an adult and helped him understand his illness and gave him the opportunity to decide on his own care. He also gave him plenty of time to ask questions and share concerns. He was very personable, professional and reassuring. He was very confident in his diagnosis and that gave us confidence also. He and his staff were very kind and understanding that it was a time of stress for us all.
Dr. Cook was the surgeon on call when I had a complication occur from a previous surgery. I was afraid when I heard that I would have to have emergency surgery. When I met Dr. Cook and his Assistant, Jory, they were kind and compassionate and made me feel that everything was going to be fine. The staff in the ER and in my hospital room later told me that he is one of the best doctors around and that I was so fortunate. I am well now and so grateful for this competent caring doctor and assistant.
Very Competent. Friendly. Straight to the point. Thorough. Does not order extra tests if problem is considered identified. No time wasted in office visits. Surgery was as easy as could be. Follow up and calls from office regarding welfare were done and made me feel important.
Dr. Cook is an excellent doctor. He spends time talking with you to discuss and answer questions. He is very thorough. He is friendly and makes sure you are comfortable and understand all of the options available.
Dr. Hill saw me in the ER two days before Christmas. He was amazing from the second he walked in! My situation was pretty serious. He really listened and gave me so much of his time. He then gave me his cell number and told me to contact him, day or night, if certain symptoms began. He was sensitive to a mother & grandmother not wanting to be in hospital for Christmas. He was caring, understanding, and I can't say enough good things about him. He is absolutely fantastic, and I really trust him.
very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly...surgery can be very scary, and Dr. Garry calms the fears...
Explained in detail how the hernia surgery would go.
very straightforward in yet very good bed side manners as well.
I highly recommend Dr. Cook to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgable surgeon. His office staff is kind and prompt with their followups and interaction with patients. Dr. Cook takes time with you to explain procedures and go over your recent test results.
Dr. Cook is very good at describing what needs to be done.
Good bedside manner. Explains everything very well and asks and listens to patient input and questions. Very good and up to date surgeon.
I was lucky. I met with my primary care physician complaining of abdominal pain. He recommended blood tests and CT scan. I went to Timpanogos Regional Hospital for the test because of my healthcare plan. The tests showed high white blood cell counts and the CT scan showed blockage in the intestinal track. Dr. Cook was the doctor on duty at the time. I have since learned that I was very blessed to have him be the one to treat me and ultimately perform my surgery. My care has been excellent!
Dr. Gill answered my questions, got me in quickly for surgery, reassured me, made me comfortable and made the whole process incredibly smooth.
I never spent much time waiting during appointments. Dr. Cook and staff are quick to get you from waiting area to exam room and are in to see you right away. This is awesome and not something a lot of physicians prioritize. Dr. Cook also spent the time needed to explain all relevant information and answer all questions. The surgery went as expected and all follow-up care was thorough. In the unfortunate event that you need Dr. Cook's services, he is a great surgeon! All staff were also great!
He and his staff are excellent. My surgery and recovery went very well.
He was very good to talk and take the time to explane
Dr. Gill is an amazing surgeon. He listens carefully to his patients, evaluates all avenues to find the very best procedures, and he is precise and thorough in his surgeries. His after-care is extremely admirable as he addresses each patient as if they are his only patient. He knows every detail of each case and seems to always be thinking of ways to make his patients more comfortable and on the mend in healthy, positive directions. He is very personable and approachable. He is my favorite!
Dr. Gill made a very uncomfortable situation much easier to deal with. I recovered quickly from my surgery, and feel so much better than I did before. He's very personable, and I enjoyed his jokes. His scheduling staff and nurse were amazing. Everyone in the office was always willing to help, even if I called several times. They went above and beyond what I've ever experienced in any doctor's office or customer service environment.
Dr. Watts saw me on a Friday, assessed my situation and determined that it warranted urgent gallbladder surgery and removal of gall stones from my common bile duct. Saturday the surgery took place. He is very professional, answered all of my questions, was concerned about my pain and overall health and went out of his way to take care of me. I am so grateful for his expertise, his professionalism and his concern for me.
Excellent experience! I scored a hat trick of hernias: one umbilical and two inguinal. Dr. Cook and Jori (despite the fact that he is a Ute fan) were both awesome. They clearly explained the probable causes of my condition and in great (and accurate) detail told me how the day of the surgery would go. They also took time to explain what to expect with recovery. So far, it's going just like they said it would. I liked the fact that they treated me as an individual and gave me any time I needed.
Dr Francis and his staff were very attentive. They listened to my concerns, they were very thorough in looking at my health history and current symptoms. Dr Francis was very informative, he took time to discuss and answer all my questions. My surgery went very well with no complications. We will return to Dr Francis if the need ever arises.
He is a GOOD Doctor!
I was in the hospital over Christmas 2 yrs in a row. I had a huge hernia I went from a 47 inch was to a 34 inch. He also got rid of my MRSA that I had had for about 5 yrs. He saw me everyday I was in the hospital even on Christmas.
He took me from 47 inch waist to a 34 inch I had a hugh herina. He also got rid my MRSA.
He never past my off to another Dr I was under his hospital care two yrs in a row over Christmas and saw me every day including Christmas.
Very good at bringing procedure explanation to patient understanding level. Professional and very personable at the same time.
Dr. Peterson and his assistant listened to me as I explained my symptoms. They didn't try to convince me that an ovarian cyst was what was causing all my problems. Dr. Peterson fit me into his surgery schedule quickly.
Dr. Cook was kind, knowledgable, and professional in his manner. The total surgery plan was explained prior to surgery as well as proper post op care.
He was good about explaining my procedure and giving me my options. Friendly Dr, friendly staff, also made follow up calls during my recovery to see how I was doing.
Met with him for a few minutes before surgery, but worked with the Nurse Practitioner in the office. I have felt much better since the surgery. Unfortunately it took too many doctor visits, urgent care, emergency room visits to get some help. Thank you for listening to me and helping me and not telling me there is nothing wrong as I had been told in all my previous visits to the medical offices. I appreciate it.
My wife had an emergency C-section and my baby was born 5 weeks early. She was in the NICU for 3 weeks. (a $200,000 bill). A week after she was born I went in for appendicitis. After that I got my bill from Dr. Bill that was $800.00. I asked if I could make payments or if there was a time limit that I had to pay it all off. They told me 6 months. After 3 months and after paying $400.00, I got a bill from collections saying I owed $800.00.This place will not work with you. All they care for is $.
Very kind and understanding. I am a nurse and appreciated his staff going the extra mile for my care. The staff called almost every day and checked on me after surgery. I would take my family and my patients to them.
Dr Hill was excellent, courteous, effient. He and his staff were wonderful. Thank you so much
He is humble, thorough and listens to what you say. I
Dr. Francis took the time to answer any and all my questions I had.
Best Dr. I have ever had. Takes time, fantastic follow-up. Truly made me feel like he has my best interest as a priority. The result of his surgery was perfect!
He did a great job and was personable and friendly!
Dr. Cook is one of the best physicians I have ever encountered in my 67 years of life. He helped me survive a perforated colon without the expected colostomy. Recently he operated on me again and performed a double mastectomy. Both times I was so impressed by his compassionate caring and his incredible skill. He's very tuned in to the patient. He's attentive before and after surgery. He's very well respected by the nurses and other doctors as well as his patients. He's absolutely amazing.
I had my gall bladder removed by Dr. Hill back in Aug of 2015. Excellent job. Recently, I had a hernia repair by Dr. Hill and again, he was terrific. A very caring, professional and skilled man.
This is a very friendly office. They remember you by name. Wait time is very little. Great place.
I had to have an emergency aptidectomy he came in before the surgery and was very sweet.i felt like he was very concerned that I was in pain. He was very kind and did a wonderful job on my surgery.
I would highly recommend Dr. Gill to my families and friends. I received the best possible medical care. He clearly explained the procedure, answered all questions...even drawing me pictures so I could understand my condition. This was a condition I suffered with for a long time. I have had a very successful recovery and feel better than I have for years. I have confidence in Dr. Gill and gratitude beyond words...
Thank you Dr. Gill !!!
Sincerely, Peggy Fisher
Dr. Cook was recommended as a general surgeon for my husbands hernia(s)surgery. He met us and was very personable and seemed very aware. He scheduled the surgery as soon as he had an opening and that was just in days. The surgery went well and he was communicative about the procedure. Very nice person; no complications with the operation.
My experience was excellent in every way. I appreciated the confidence and competence of Dr. Cook, his office staff, and the entire O.R. team at the hospital. I was treated kindly at all times and everything was explained in great detail to me several times over. The overall effect was that I felt very little apprehension and a lot of confidence.
Dr. Francis was excellent. He fixed my hernia and his followup could not have been better. He communicated what he was going to do and made me feel comfortable. I would recommend him to everyone.
Dr Hill and his staff are very friendly and very knowledgeable about what they do. they took the time to talk with us and to make sure all our questions were answered. They called several times after my hospital stay to make sure I was doing well. I was very impressed with Dr Hill and his whole staff. For being an emergency case for them, they took the time to get to know me and to talk with me about what I was going through.
I would highly recommend anyone to go to him!
If I ever need surgery again, I will choose Dr. Gill. I was able to quickly schedule my gallbladder surgery. He is compassionate, professional, clearly explains the procedure, the risks, and what to expect in recovery. He provided written instructions pre and post surgery. There are variables with an individual's recovery, but my experience was very little pain (only took two Advil twice), no nausea, and quick recovery. I'm 13 days post surgery & I feel great! I highly recommend Brian Gill.
He was wonderful. He fit me in when no one else would. He is a very skilled Surgeon. I would go to him again without hesitation. He went above and beyond. Very through. He talked to me and explained everything. He had a great way of putting me at ease.
To be completely honest I saw him for about 5 minutes at my initial appointment (more time spent with the PA, he's a surgeon so he's busy) and then maybe 5 minutes before the surgery... He was knowledgeable and kind during our brief interaction. That being said, my surgery went great and I'm healing well so I would call that a win.
Dr. Cook is an excellent Doctor! I travel out of state to see him. He is a gifted surgeon who genuinely cares about your well-being. He explains things well and takes his time talking with you. He saved my life! His staff is awesome and returns calls very fast! :) Nothing but positive experiences with his office!
He is great with his patients. He has great experience and talent to do what he does.
I had emergency surgery on a Sunday morning. I had not met nor heard of Dr. Francis before this but was pleased with his work.
Dr. Francis provided a helpful explanation of the surgical procedure and the expectations that a patient should have following the surgery. He also followed up to insure that all questions were answered.
Dr Cook was able to resolve problems I have had since my original surgery over 10 years ago. After numerous procedures by other surgeons, I was fortunate to find Dr Cook during an emergency room visit. His knowledge and experience is exceptional and his genuine concern for his patients is beyond compare! He is quick to educate and answer any and all questions. His entire staff shares this same concern for their patients and I feel fortunate to be under their care. I highly recommend Dr Cook
Great surgeon. I am very happy that he was the one to operate on me. Very knowledgeable.
Good bedside manner.
We had a great experience with Dr. Cook. He was knowledgeable and helpful and seemed very interested in helping us find a solution to our problem.
still in the recovery stage but everything has gone well, the staff have answered all my questions and have been very accomidating.great job thus far!
Dr Francis is very good about explaining the situation and necessary surgery and the expected results.
Marvelous doctor. Couldn't ask for better. Did three surgeries on me. I was supposed to die but many years later I'm alive and well.
It was great. I would recommend to anyone!
Dr. Francis is a very competent surgeon. Great communicator and great to work with.
If I could give Dr. Cook 10 stars, I would. I hadn't met him until the day of my surgery, but that was OK because his nurse practitioner, Christy, was fantastic. On the day of my follow-up appointment, I saw both Christy and Dr. Cook. What I love about my experience is that they gave me exceptional medical care and they cared about me. I left their office feeling like Dr. Cook had been my family doctor for the last 15 years. Plus, my surgery was textbook perfect.
Had my gallbladder removed on a Monday was back in the hospital Tuesday with really bad pains and found out I had a baseball size clot. Dr. Francis was there everyday to check in! The staff at his office in Payson is amazing! Super friendly and made my experience a lot less scary! Thank you all so much!
very concise making sure I understood all he was telling me
Heard great things about Dr. Cook from friends and he exceeded all my expectations. Great Doctor and amazing staff.
He has operated on me 2 times and I have done very well with the results. He is a good listener and very kind. [I work in the OR.]
He was very kind and compassionate and so was his staff. He explained things in a way that I could understand.
Dr. Hill was truly a life saver. He was compassionate, confident, and had a sense of urgency that matched my own which was a definite change of pace for me. I would recommend he and his staff without a question!
Dr. Peterson and his staff were very knowledgeable about the procedure and explained what was going to happen very well. They sent me home with information about how to prepare for surgery and what to expect after surgery. They handled all the requirements with my insurance company.
Dr. Francis was positive, encouraging, and cheerful beginning with my pre-op appointment, during my surgical stay in the hospital, and at post-op appointment. Not having ever met him before, I felt very confident with his abilities as a surgeon.
Dr. Cook has done surgery on my sister, her husband and all of their children (5) and my mother and on me. We believe that he is the most skilled surgeon available anywhere. He is also personable.
My Experience was wonderful! I am a very hard person to please and Dr.Francis took such good care of me, my recovery was rough but he made sure everyday that I was doing ok, he wanted to see me get better, the fact that he went the extra mile to call me and see how I was, sets him apart from all the other doctors that I have ever worked with. He Is professional, Caring, kind & is one of the best surgeons I have met.! I would recommend him 10/10 times. Dont settle for anything less than the best!
Dr. Peterson did a great job of explaining the procedure and everything to expect after the procedure.
Dr. Cook is a wonderful surgeon. He listens to all your concerns and helps you make the best possible decision for the best outcome. He isn't pushy and wants to make sure you understand the procedure and recovery. I would recommend his to anybody!
I was referred to Dr. Gill by an Emergency Room physician. His diagnostic skill, surgical talent, and healing talent resulted in successful surgery. I went home with no pain in my recovery. The office staff assisted in coordinating my appointment and were courteous. I cannot express my level of gratitude for Dr. Gill's competency and skill. My most sincere thanks, Bradlee D. Black.
Our family Doctor said that he would trust Dr. Gill with his life. That helped me understand that I was in good hands. He was very thorough and explained everything in a way that I could understand. His assistant, Hannah, was very supportive when I would call with questions and needing some reassurance the first couple of days after the surgery.
Very personable and friendly.
He is an amazing doctor. He explains everything well and is an excellent surgeon.
Good doctor. He knows what he is doing. My surgery was successful and I am very satisfied with the treatment and the outcome.
He was very professional, and he did a great job. But, he seemed like he was always in a rush, never really feeling like he was focusing on me and was there to answer all my questions. I had to bring up that I had questions. Maybe just put a bit more energy into what the patient wants.
I felt an assurance that the outcome of my surgery would be success based on Dr. Gills experience.
Dr. Gill was by far the kindest, most qualified surgeon to perform the surgery that I needed done. After the surgery, when my recovery went much slower than normal, he used great expertise in finding the solution for healing me. He had a marvelous bedside manner while still remaining completely professional. He explained everything to me in a way that I could understand what had taken place and what I needed to do in the future. I have been highly recommending him to all my acquaintances.
He was very personable and thorough He explained everything and told me what to expect. I feel very confident with him as my surgeon
