Dr. Cooke has been "the caretaker" of my heart since 2007 when he placed 2 stents. In 2012 he placed another stent that was unavailable in 2007. What can I say about him that hasn't already been said above? Just this: He has a great sense of humor and I get a real kick out of it when he blushes! :-)

Dr. Dennis Cooke has been my cardiologist since 2003. Dr. Cooke has placed many stents in my heart. He has always worked closely with Dr. Robert Burnette, cardiovascular surgeon, whenever they needed too. Dr. Cooke is simply the best cardiologist I could possibly have, Not one negative aspect about dealing with this doctor. I feel fortunate to have him as my doctor. Dave Klyzek
