Dr. Cook did surgery on a problem I’ve had for five years. He spent quite a bit of time with me on my initial visit. He quickly diagnosed it and he gave me the options, the probabilities of success and the side effects. I made the decision to have surgery and my pain was gone! Thank you, Dr. Cook!

My son had a malignant brain tumor and Dr. Cook quite literally saved his life. He explained everything in a direct and confident manner. He went out of his way to ease my worries; even replying to my calls and email when he was out of the country. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Dr. Cook.

Dr Cook did the most exceptional job in removing the tumor from my moms brain. She was left with no deficits and we are super happy with the surgery. He is not the most personal doctor but if you want a fabulous surgeon, dr cook is your guy.
