I was experiencing pain on my two little toes. Finally, I made an appointment with Dr. Gary Cockrell. His staff is wonderful and caring. His love of music makes for interesting conversation. He immediately made me feel welcome with his easy going nature. He was understanding of my work schedule which can be challenging when setting up an appointment. He listened to my concerns with empathy. He was very precise on the procedure, medicines, and restrictions. I highly recommend Dr. Cockrell.

Dr. Cockrell is very intelligent and listens attentively to your visit concerns. He offers various options in an effort to relieve pain/discomfort and follows through with your health concerns. Being referred by several other long time patients of him I found him to be a physician that would be easy to work with. Many patients have found him to be an outstanding surgeon.

Absolutely awful. Do yourself a favor a stay away. He has an "old school" mentality and has no beside demeanor and is awfully rude to his patients. I myself am a nurse and would not recommend him to my worst enemy. Find another podiatrist. Do not go to him.

Dr cockrell conducted a radical bunionectomy on my right foot with excellent results. I can finally walk normally and wear proper shoes. I felt little to no pain from beginning to end. He was an excellent referral from my GP. If you need to have foot surgery- call him! He was wonderful:)

As a Physical Therapist who has treated several of Dr. Cockrell's patients, much high praise has been spoken by his PT clients regarding both post op and non invasive treatments. With proper compliance with Physical Therapy and post op rehab program, positive results are observed and expected.

I had bunion surgery 2 years ago and am in as much pain as I was before surgery. In addition to the pain, my big toe does not lay down flat to the floor as it did before. This condition is known as "elevated toe" or "cocked up big toe"-- I was sold an additional contraption after surgery to fix this. It is very painful to wear and hard to position correctly. While at physical therapy, I asked if they had seen another toe elevated like mine and was told yes, but only another patient of his!

Dr. Cockrell is an exceptional foot specialist. He is thorough, gentle and committed to ensure his patients are provided excellent care - surgery and follow-up. If you have hammertoes or other serious foot issues, he is the best choice. I can't thank Dr. Cockrell enough for his exceptional care over the last year. Highly recommend. He can help you - go and visit him.

Dr. Cockrell did surgery for bunions on both feet about 10 years ago, and then several months ago did surgery for Morton's neuroma. Both times the recovery was surprisingly easy, and the results were good. I was nervous about foot surgery after hearing other people's stories of their experiences with other doctors. Dr. Cockrell is a skilled surgeon though he's not quick to jump to that path unless it's necessary. I highly recommend him.
