Patient Comments (2)
As a physician and a patient, I was impressed by Dr. Hook's knowledge and empathy. There are few providers who can combine those two and be thorough as well as make the patient feel heard and understood. There should be more doctors like Dr. Hook.

First appointment I had with her I cried because she had thoroughly read through my entire file before meeting me. This is a rare trait for a dr. now a days to look at the person as a whole and to take into account their entire medical history...not just what the immediate issue may be. I felt validated and heard. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
