Dr. Cook was very good at informing me of what he was going to do to replace my hip. I felt very comfortable with him and his staff.

Dr Thomas Cook is top notch in his field, has top notch credentials, has great bedside manners, and cares for each and everyone of his patients. There is none better. He is the physician who fixes other issues caused by other surgeons and I met a patient that is extremely satisfied with Dr Cook when another surgeon blundered his hip replacement. This man is extremely satisfied with the “fix” that Dr Cook made when his previous surgery did not go well. I am extremely satisfied with the surgeries done on both of my hips and I recommend his to everyone. He is a very competent, top notch surgeon. And I would recommend Dr Cook to anyone wanting a hip replacement. His staff is competent, friendly, and professional.

Dr. Cook is an adequate surgeon for basic orthopedic procedures. However, his response time when complications occur is totally inadequate and non-personal.

What a great Doctor!!! I have seen several orthopedics for my knees over the last 15 yrs. When I found Dr Cook through my Insurance company, What a straight forward no nonsense plan he had for me. I had total knee replacement on June 12th and was up and walking around Target 1 week later. I was so afraid of the pain I would be in for months after surgery...Well it was controlled and only used pain meds for 2 weeks...Now going in for other knee 4 months later...I m so blessed he is my DR!!!

Dr. Cook is not only a great surgeon, but he cares about his patients. He tried to fix mistakes made by Dr. Vitols. Dr. Cook and his staff are great at their jobs and very caring. I am grateful to God for sending me to him.

I had hip replacement surgery in July, 2017 and am very pleased with the care I received. Dr. Cook has excellent bedside manner and took time to explain everything to me. I work as a registered nurse and would recommend this surgeon without hesitation.

Dr. Cook was referred after I became allergic to the adhesives used in a knee replacement. He did a total knee revision which was extensive, I regained total range of motion. Dr. Cook is the best doctor I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. His bedside manner is outstanding and he will take however much time is required to explain everything so that you have no questions.

Dr Cook is not only an amazing surgeon, he is caring, compassionate, and professional. My father in law fell and fractured his femur/hip. Dr Cook made arrangements to transfer him to Good Sam and performed surgery at 5:45pm that day!! He came and talked to all of us before and after surgery! He goes above and beyond for his patients. Highly recommend Dr Cook. I know from personal experience d/t he repaired my bad knee replacement from another surgeon!

My mom had a knee replacement almost 2 years ago. She has not fully healed and recovered from the knee replacement. Dr.Cook did not do it properly. He finished the surgery in 25 minutes, which I found odd. Now, after going to two other doctors my mom has gotten confirmation that Dr. Cook cut her tendons, making it impossible to heal, and making her leg longer, causing pain and difficulty walking. I will NEVER recommend him to anyone. he is only in this to make money. It's truly horrible.

Dr cook is an amazing surgeon! My mother and sister have been using him for years. The problem is with the staff. You can not get a hold of a nurse or scheduling person. They are supposed to return your call within 24 hours which has never happened. My husband has a torn meniscus and is in terrible pain he was supposed to be scheduled for an mri but it never got scheduled. I have left 4 messages over 2 weeks my husband has left 3 messages with no return phone call. cant reach a nurse
