We had a great experience with Dr. Cole, we saw her for the first year and a half of our daughter's life, and her care of and for our daughter was exemplary. The only reason we are not still seeing Dr. Cole is that we moved 2400 miles away!

Dr. Cole has been our pediatrician for the last 8 years. I am so grateful for her knowledge and expertise. Her intervention after another pediatrician's misdiagnosis probably saved my son's life. I never feel rushed and Dr. Cole is SO very thorough. She is adamant about giving children the best medical attention & treatment possible . I am always at ease because I know they are getting the best care in Gwinnett. Both my kids are so healthy, and I attribute that to Dr. Cole.

Courtney H. in Duluth, GA – May 24, 2016
When I first met Dr. Cole I was a new mom with a baby boy. She always takes the time to explain everything and then explain it again and sends me home with notes. She hears what you as a parent have to say and then helps guide you through what is going on. My daughter arrived 6 weeks early and Dr. Cole helped us every step of the way in navigating life with a preemie. She was everything I could ask for in a pediatrician for our children and a great support for me.

Dr. Cole is a wonderful and caring pediatrician who advocates for her patients. She spends a lot of time understanding the parents' concerns and spends great time in explaining any issue in an accessible way. She is obviously passionate about her job and serving her patients. I often recommend her to friends and family looking for a new pediatrician. I really can't say enough positive things about her!

Kelley H in Atlanta, GA – Apr 21, 2016
I've been taking my children to Dr. Cole's practice since they were born. They are now teenagers and always request Dr. Cole for sick and well visits. She makes them feel comfortable and is professional and courteous and spends a lot of time talking directly to them, not just to a parent which shows how much she cares. I have and will continue to refer her to my family and friends. Dr. Cole and her entire practice offer outstanding care and are diligent about keeping kids healthy & happy.

I highly recommend Dr. Cole for being an incredible pediatrician and child advocate. She is aggressive in devising treatment plans when needed and does whatever it takes to find a solution. She stays on top of the treatment and follows up as well. She is very caring and makes children of all ages feel comfortable during both sick and well visits. I have taken my son and daughter to her practice for over 10 years and we absolutely love her. She is topnotch!

She is a very caring doctor.

Mia McKnight in Duluth, GA – Apr 19, 2016
I am so thankful that we found Dr. Shannon Cole. My daughter has been dealing with unknown lung issues for over 2 years and been seen by several doctors. In less than 2 months of tests and referrals to the right specialists, we have a diagnosis. As a parent, sometimes all you know is that your child is not well. Dr. Cole is knowledgeable, assertive and determined to get the answers you are seeking. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for an incredible pediatrician and advocate.
