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.

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.
