Dr. Cook performed a "Quick Lift" for me in June of this year. Dr. Cook's surgical skill is exemplary and he has a very kind manner. My recovery was a bit challenging but nothing out of the ordinary. Dr. Cook and his assistant, Tiffany, were available to answer every question or concern. The entire staff is welcoming and supportive. A positive experience.

Confident and humble Dr. Excellent bedside manner. Explains every step and makes you feel comfortable. I highly recommend him and his wonderful staff for any of your facial needs from surgery to a simple facial. You will be highly satisfied.

8-31-16 I had a disconcerting experience with an eye Doctor in Charlotte, who was rude to me. I was left with an on going annoying sties, altering my site. I was referred to Dr. Cook and was seen right away. He discussed my concerns ( a slit at the end of my eyelid) which was creating the ongoing sties. He looked and said," I can fix that". He has great way about him, relaxed and comfortable. I would see him again for anything regarding facial surgery. I say Five Stars for this Doctor!

I absolutely adored Dr Cook! Dr Cook has the best bedside manner of any Doctor I have ever seen. He is passionate about his patients and his work. He spent more than ample time explaining my up coming procedure. Everyone of his staff members treated me with the utmost respect. I cannot wait to see the outcome of my procedure. I have complete trust in his work.

Dr. Cook was faced with a very complicated surgery in a very sensitive area of my face - my right eye lid. A skin cancer had been removed by a Pathologist, who referred me to Dr. cook. The cancer had spread down into my cheek area leaving Dr. Cook with a complicated option of closing up the surgery done. Dr. Explained, in detail, to me what he recommended for me to satisfy just what I was hoping for as far as any scaring that I would be left with. my end results were excellent, he cared!
