    I travel a nice distance to see Dr. Cook. He is the best primary care doctor that I have ever had. My husband and I both see him for care. Dr. Cook exhibits great pride in his practice and the care he provides for his patients. The only way I will leave his practice is if he is no longer in business or we move to another state. I love this guy and his practice.......
