I can't speak to Dr. Coo's care or the staff as at the time I called they weren't accepting new patients unless referred by another doctor. Earliest appointment the receptionist said was possibly available would be in January, so 3 months away and that would be with another doctor in the office.

I'd probably rate Dr. Coo higher if I had actually been able to see him. Made an appointment back in late june/early july. Was told Sept 28 was the earliest available appointment for a new patient. I jumped on it and booked as he has great reviews. Took the day off, went to the office 15 mins before my appointment and was told that my name wasn't on their calendar. Fantastic.
