    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

    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.
