    Dr. Cook has been my nephrologist for several years now. I appreciate several things about his care: Taking time to relate on a personal level, explaining medical issues in lay terms, and his willingness to discuss options and to take a conservative approach. His staff has always been great also (easy to contact, personable, friendly, and reliable). This makes for an exceptional clinic!
