Dr. Cook's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cook "I was born and raised in east Texas but found my way to east Tennessee in 1983 and have been here ever since. I married a Maryville native Judy and have a son Jeremy, daughter Hayley, and step-daughter Christy. In 2005 I began working at Cornerstone of Recovery with dual diagnosis patients and am the Chief of Psychiatry there. In 2014 I started the first TMS clinic, TMS of Knoxville. This is quite a rewarding specialty and it is very satisfying to help patients go into remission from their depression and remain well despite having failed an average of 6-8 different medications and antidepressants. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cook "We have the first and only Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation clinic in Knoxville, see www.tmsofknoxville,com. This is a great breakthrough in the treatment of difficult depression. I still practice psychotherapy in addition to medication maintenance. I especially like treating ADHD, depression, and anxiety disorders."

Dr.Lane Cook was my psychiatrist since 1993-2016. He is an excellent doctor and I have received over and above excellent care from him. Would still be seeing him but my insurance doesn't cover him.

Went to him for TMS and I was in bad shape. TMS did nothing and he just said oh well, took my money and sent me on my way. He knew how bad off I was and left me floundering for help on my own.

We begin by telling all of our patients that there's a one-in-four chance they may not improve at all. I have never said, "Oh well" to anyone I failed to help, never will. I take every unsuccessful treatment personally and have extended treatments, offered consultation to other doctors, and made recommendations for alternative treatments for people who do not improve.
