Slow, always having his assistant working on his behalf. His staff are nice but didn't get the care I need from him. Changed after 6 visits.

I tore a ligament in my foot tripping up stairs last April. I had surgery last June to repair the damage with a plate and several screws. Through out the entire process of identifying what the issue was and the subsequent surgery, I found Dr. Cooke and his entire staff to be very compassionate and knowledgeable. At each appointment, Dr. Cooke spent as much time with me as I needed and I thoroughly understood what the surgery was about, what to expect and how to feel afterwards.

Dr. Cook did surgery on my foot. The bunion came back only worse, big toe is partially numb, will not bend properly, pain when walking and overall I wish I had not had the surgery. Spent time with me before surgery and after the surgery he gave me about 5 minutes. On a scale of 1-10 it would be an easy 0.

I have had two surgeries by Dr. Cook and I recommended my daughter to him and she had surgery by him as well. I LOVE Dr. Cook.

Dr Cook diagnosed and treated my Morton's neuroma. I had been told I needed surgery but with orthotics and toe-taping I have done very well and not needed surgery.

I had reconstructive ankle surgery about ten years ago. Dr. Cook insulted the surgeon I went to in Dallas (who I have a good relationship with), barely spent 10 minutes with me, told me I'd eventually just have to have surgery again, recommended some useless inserts and the acted annoyed that my daughter was there (I'd asked ahead of time if I could bring her). His xray tech also seemed shocked when I asked for a lead vest bc I might be pregnant...she had to ask him if I could have a vest?

I had an ankle fusion by Dr. Cook and could not be happier or more grateful for the outcome. It is such a blessing to be out of pain and able to live my life again.

Two days prior to surgery got a call from the Physician-owned hospital RE: $3000 payment owed, despite blue chip BCBS plan. Not sure about these payments and these surgeon-owned facilities. Question the billing coding.

I went to Dr. Cook for a Bunionectomy. Big toe was rubbing on the 2nd toe & 4th toe had been broken & I asked him to straighten it. Without my permission he removed the knuckle in the 4th toe & it will never bend. At 7 mo?s he said big toe didn?t heal properly & he could fix it with more surgery. I have more pain than before surgery. Big toe will not bend & laps over 2nd toe more than before, 4th toe is crooked & leans over on little toe. He is rude, arrogant & never showed any respect.
