Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cole "I treat the patient as a whole, and by that, I mean the mind and spirit, as well as the body. I do a variety of simple surgical procedures such as laceration repair, biopsies, nail removals etc. I do Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), when appropriate. OMT is a form of manual medicine similar to what a chiropractor or physical therapist might administer"

Patient Comments (1)
in Clarksville, TN |
I chose Dr. Gary Cole upon turning 65 and my start with TRICARE for Life, which is the combination of TRICARE and Medicare. The Military Medical Facility gave me a list of local doctors who were accepting new patients and who had agreed to the terms the government had established. I hit my computer and checked them all out. Dr. Cole had 5 stars on every website I checked and he was nearby. I've been with him for 7 years and he's the best doctor I have ever had. He really does care ABOUT me.
