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 he cares for his patients. I'd give this man a million star review if I could!
