Dr. Cook is simply the BEST. I was very unhappy with my daughter's ortho in Syracuse so I did some research. Going to Dr. Cook was soooo worth the drive out to see him. He performed a much less invasive surgery than the other doctor was going to do. He is very informative and you can tell how much...more
