I am trying to become a new patient . My primary referred me . I'm just having trouble with getting a appointment. I had my doctors office call because I thought maybe that would be quicker . It's got to be at least a month now ?? Still waiting patiently

He is patient, caring aware of any ways to combat chronic pain. With so many so-called pain doctors unwilling to truly help, this doctor is treasure. You will NOT be sorry you called.

I have seen Dr. Cole for several years. He spends a good amount of time with each patient and is the most respectful physician I know. He is a man of compassion and he is a good listener.

I have been going for the past four years due to injury from a car accident from 2005 .thanks to Dr Cole I'm able to live a new life again
I was on the verge of giving up. I had been to doctor after doctor and nobody cares or understood my pain. I had lost hope in ever being able to have any kind of quality of life. I couldn't even use the bathroom. Finally I found Dr . Cole. He is not only smart and tells me what is going on but he also listens to me. Sometimes the wait is long but it is well worth it. If you need 2 hours with him he will give it to you. I thank the Lord everyday for finding him. If I hadn't I wouldn't be here
