What People Say About Dr. Margaret Cook, MD
Reply
She does not listen to her patients. She comes in with predetermined idea of how many SECONDS she will spent on a patient even if the dialysis patient is new and this is the first meeting. If you try to question her hasty conclusions (God forbid you have data that contradicts her) she throws a tantrum and says the patient is refusing treatment. Fresenius care promises that patients have the right to learn about their care and actively participate in their care plan. Dr. Cook doesn't care.
