Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Cole's Care Philosophy

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
