The wait time for Dr. Cook is ridiculous. He & his staff are not friendly. They always act like you are an inconvenience to them. If you schedule with him be prepared, your time is no concern to him.

Went in to see Dr.Cook for a broken hand and was immediately offended by the rude and unprofessional staff. The xray tech did not even greet me, just told me to follow her and then said good luck when she returned me to my room. Dr. Cook looked at my xrays and instantly made an incorrect observation regarding my previous medical history. I was told that I need surgery immediately or else I would lose substantial mobility in my hand. Dr. Cooks diagnosis and quick-to-cut mentality was complete

Had my first appointment with Dr.Cook and do not quite know what to think. Thus far I cannot comment on the skill set of this physician, but the lack of sincere interest and in-depth care were pretty obvious. When I made the appointment, I was told to square away plenty of time for the visit (because I was seeing a specialist) but when it was time for me to actually meet with him, I was given a whopping 3-5 minutes of his time. No in-depth questions about my history or current symptoms.

Dr. Cook was great. He recently performed distal biceps tendon repair for me. The surgery went very well and the incisions are incredibly neat. Long term, I don't think they will be visible at all. I discussed various options and rehab and it is clear that Dr. Cook really knows this stuff. He was recommended by wanted top radiologists in Columbus to me and I would highly recommend Dr. Cook.

Poor bedside manner and condescending with rude staff. Would ask a question then interrupt before providing the answer. Minimal physical exam and did not attempt to get a full history. He came highly recommended from a friend in the medical field but will not see him again.
