Dr. Cook Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cook Jr "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."

Patient Comments (2)

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.
