in Murray, KY |
Dr. Cook was going to do a procedure for me that my regular Ob/Gyn had set up. His attitude was terrible, he didn't explain what he was going to do. He just jumped in and started without any real communication with me. He clearly did not want to do the procedure and actually told me that he was not going to do everything that my original doctor had planned to do. No communication, no prep work, I went through horrific pain and he just gave up. Said, "I'm not going to do this." Stopped-left

I would not recommend this Dr. because he would not even tell me what procedures he was performing. He just goes right in and starts doing a pap smear or vaginal exam without explaining anything to you in advance. Plus, he asked if I knew that my uterus was prolapsed. I said I did know that and was interested in getting a pessary. He would not fit me for one and just brushed off my concern. He does not care for his patients and will let them keep their uterus hanging out. Shame on him!
