      Upon 12/14/2011 D.O. Cole operated upon me doing the Sleeve Surgery (Weight Loss). He is a great man. D.O. Cole is larger than life. He is tall in stature, character, compassion, and care for other people. This excellent man is compassion in action. He lives what he says he can do. In other words, D.O. Cole is above board in all things concerning my healthcare. His word is his bond in everything. He is a pillar of the Tulsa community. You have tried all the rest now try the very best.

      Dr. Cole was brought in to do surgery on my wife after finding out she had a ruptured colon. We couldn't have asked for a nicer, more gentle surgeon. Our experience with him was excellent and we would recommend Dr. Cole to anyone who needs this type of treatment. Thank you Dr. Cole. Mike Hancock
