I highly recommend Dr. Cook. After several visits to New England Baptist and numerous failed injections I knew fusion surgery was my only option but I could never move past the office help to work with my insurance to approve the surgery. Dr. Cook reviewed my MRI with me, gave me his opinion and scheduled the fusion surgery. I felt great the night of surgery and two months later I am pain free and cannot thank Dr. Cook enough for what he has done for me.
