Biography

My Approach to Treating Patients

As a Board Certified Hand Surgeon and a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon with more than 25 years of specialization, I take a personal and individual approach to caring for my patients.

To provide the highest quality care, my staff and I strive to listen to the needs of each individual patient, to establish a relationship with each patient, to educate each patient, and to involve each patient in their treatment.

I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of Hand and Upper Extremity conditions. I also evaluate general Orthopaedic lower extremity conditions.

During an initial consultation, patients can expect to establish a relationship with me and my staff, to undergo a detailed evaluation, to learn and participate in state-of-the-art treatment for their condition, and ultimately to know that they made the right decision in choosing me.

The highest compliment I receive is when patients recommend me to one of their family members or friends. My patient's trust is of the utmost importance to me.

Placentia, CA |
Poor at coordinating care other refering physicians. Doesn't give clear directions/explanation on what needs to be done. Quick to schedule surgeries - that is all he cares about. Unorganized and incompetent staff who lack empathy.
in Laguna Beach, CA |
I am a former eye surgeon who developed rheumatoid arthritis with subsequent hand and finger problems. Dr. Cook has been outstanding in helping me with these problems. I have also had trigger finger surgeries on 2 different fingers by Dr. Cook. The surgeries went very well and I have recovered fully so that I can play guitar comfortably again.
