Dr. Cook did a great job on my hernia. He was really nice and so was his PA. I'd definitely use him again (but I hope I don't need to).

Dr. Cook is amazing. He’s very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. Everything from when I called to schedule the first visit with him through the post-op appointment was very smooth. He doesn’t make you feel rushed and was great to answer any questions.
