We followed dr cook after he left another practice. He's the best doctor we've ever had. Always makes us feel well cared for and like we are his top priority. Very thorough. Wonderful bedside manner. Even remembers specific details about our lives from one visit to the next. His wife (Dr. Siu) is just as wonderful. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
