I felt very comfortable with Dr. Cook. She not only listens to your concerns but addresses them HONESTLY. She will tell you straight up if some form of treatment works or if it doesn't. She personally tries the new procedures that come out and gives you her honest opinion of the product or procedure. She removed a basal cell carcinoma spot on my forehead and you can not tell it was ever present. She did an excellent job of removal, explanation of treatment and what was my responsibility for self care at home. I would recommend her to anyone who has facial concerns. She has a down to earth, no bones but professional bedside manner!

Dr. Cook and her staff are awesome. They are kind,caring, responsible and detailed-oriented. My skin has improved so much since I started treatment! Thanks to Dr. Cook, I got rid of an awful stain on my cheek and Danielle is taking care of my facial hair. Chris is so nice! I love calling in to make appointments. Great team and reasonable prices.

Dr Cook was very thorough in my exam. Her staff were all so kind and attentive. Dr. Cook didn't push to have all kinds of anti-aging procedures done. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Cook and staff were wonderful and so easy to work with. Prior to finding Dr. Cook, I had never met dermatologist with a decent bedside manner. She is very nice, professional, and helpful.
