Dr Cook is a better than excellent MD. I got a quick appointment, wait time was normal and his staff are very competent and pleasant to work with. Dr. Cook took time to explain my tests, what to expect and then went over the results immediately. I would see him again without reservation.

Dr. Albert Cook is awesome. He really takes the time to explain things to you and answers ANY questions that you might have. He also has a great bedside manner. I really enjoy having him as my doctor. I have a condition for the past 17 years which has required a neurologist. He has been one of the best neurologists that I have had over the years. I would most definitely refer him to anyone!

Doctor ordered a DAT scan. Had the exam and was told the doctor would call me with results in 2-3 days. That was three weeks ago now. Have called the doctor’s office at least a half dozen times and left multiple messages. No response. Very frustrating.

I gave this doctor a list of symptoms I have. He told me that I likely hallucinated them and that they didn't match any neurological disorder he'd heard of. A Google search of my symptoms indicated something potentially autoimmune. He did explain his logic but it was the first visit and that was quite a stretch for the first encounter with a patient.

Dr. Cook is wonderful! He took the time to listen to all of my concerns and was very thorough in his exam. He was able to explain what he felt my issues were in a way that I could understand (with cognitive impairment). He made me feel comfortable and gave me a plan for getting me well again. His staff was amazing! I got a next day appointment and then got lost (cognitive impairment) and arrived 30 minutes late and he was more than happy to see me.

Dr. Cook immediately went to work with ordering tests to determine what was causing the symptoms I was having. He even called me personally to tell me the results. He is extremely knowledgeable in his profession and legal issues as it relates to medicine. Whenever I have follow up testing as I do yearly for my condition, his staff calls me promptly to go over the results. I usually don’t have to wait more than 20 mins to see the doctor when I have an appointment. I would recommend this doctor.

I had a very bad experience with Dr. Albert A. Cook. I was crying throughout the entire visit, due to a severe headache I have had for long time. He displayed such a non-professional attitude towards me, I believe because I was crying. He gave me 2 shots in the back of my head for nerve block. These shots did not stop the pain. I have called his office 3 times since visit. He has not returned my calls. He dismissed me as being severely depressed, said I needed a psychiatrist. Pain remains

High hope here. He saw me and did some initial testing. Said he was concerned with his findings. Bloodwork ordered then he never called again. Getting my test results and seeing a competent doc before I get worse. Looking at past reviews from 16, this is not uncommon.

It has been months since I saw Albert Cook, but I had to leave a review to share my experience with him. I suffered for months with debilitating neurological and cognitive issues that at least 15 other doctors had dismissed as "emotional or stress related". Finally,I made an appt with Dr. Cook. On the very first visit, not only was he the first to actually listen, but he ran the proper tests and found the diagnosis on the very first visit. He saved my life. I am eternally grateful.

I have all kinds of chronic pain from all over my body. I have entirely to many doctors that can't tell me how to ease my pain. After over two years of other neurologist giving all types of test Dr. Cook pinpointed my main problem by just looking at my back and legs. I had a concussion which gave me huge headaches which my other three doctors couldn't take care of. Dr Cook prescribed the right medicine the first time. Dr Cook has years of experience and stays up to date.

NOT an Emory Hospital Dr....only affiliated with Johns Creek Hospital. Ran lots of tests on husband who presented with progressive neuromuscular symptoms. Had to physically go to office 2x to demand results of brain MRI/spinal because cook /nurse rarely return calls. Husband's symptoms cont to progress to point of interfering with daily life/work. I called top neuro dr@Emory Univ Hospial, who fit us in next week and was alarmed Cook let symptoms get this far w/out referring us elsewhere.

My mother had been suffering since the middle of January, 2016. I finally found Dr. Cook in the list of doctors my insurance accepted and in a short amount of time, he found the problem. We will never go to anyone else. He has definitely won our confidence.
