    He is a professional with a dedication to acquiring the most current knowledge and skills necessary to perform the selected surgery. In my experience he had assembled a key support team that assisted him in the pre surgery eval., the surgical task, and post surgery task. These people were most helpful to my spouse. He has a good bed size manner. I would recommend Dr Cook.
