      in Oklahoma City, OK |
      I was referred to Dr. Cook for a complex tri-lobed cerebral aneurysm surgery where coiling was not an option. I went in for a consultation and scheduled surgery. Listening to my gut feeling, I called Dr. Cook's office to postpone the surgery in order to be able to obtain a 2nd opinion. His receptionist put the doctor, himself, on the phone to talk with me. It was during this call that he threw a tantrum like a 2-year-old. Sure glad I didn't go in for surgery with him! Very unprofessional!!

      dr cook was rude and dismissive. he tried to compare his injury to mine which is not cool. would not recommend to my dog. I see now why the norman surgeons group kicked him out. good decision. not professional at all

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Cook's Care Philosophy

      Patient comfort is as important as overall outcome. By using minimally invasive techniques in all aspects of neurosurgery, hospital stay and recovery time are shortened, while patient discomfort is minimized. Surgery should always be the last option after all non-surgical options have failed. If surgery is the only option left, then the least invasive option that alleviates the symptoms should always be chosen.
