Dr. Cole is one of the only doctors that I have visited that genuinely seemed to care about curing my migraine problem, not just mask the pain. He did not downplay any of my symptoms and genuinely cared about every detail of my condition that I described to him. Doctors with bedside manner this amazing who also are as educated in their field as Dr. Cole is are hard to find. Highly recomend.

Dr. Cole explained and educated me on my pain. He listens to me as well, without down playing it to me. I look forward to a GREAT Doctor/Patient relationship.I also found him to be a Gentleman, afterall , how many Doctors would take the time out of their busy schedule to escort a 58yr. old lady to the Restroom? He sure DID.. WOW, that's rare these days.... Ur the best Doc.!!!!!

Dr. Cole has been my neurologist since 2012 or 2013 when I was referred due to chronic migraines. He has always treated me with respect, and never down played my pain level, ever. He always encourages me to get off of my bum and exercise, take care of me because no one else can, only me, and he's right. Due to his care, I am able to keep my migraines to a minimum. I wish I had known about him when he first came to Hattiesburg. My favorite part of the visits, I always learn something non-medical.
