My daughter was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at age 11 by a pediatric rheumatologist at TX Children’s. She is now an adult & has been experiencing terrible pain in her neck, back & hips. Her neurologist suggested she may have degenerative disc disease or worse. We waited 2 months for an appt with Dr. Cockrill. She dismissed my daughter as if there was absolutely nothing wrong with her. Also after requesting her blood work be sent to her PCP, it was never sent. She has no compassion & is uncaring.
She is awesome!

Dr Cockrill has helped me tremendously since I moved to the Houston three years ago. Her knowledge of arthritis is exhibited each time I visit her and feel better now than ever. Dr Cockrills bedside manner allows me the comfort all patients desire. The most pleasant and helpful doctor I've ever known.

Awful experience! I waited in a dirty waiting room for over an hour and a half to see Dr. Cockrill and will NEVER go back!!! Her staff is rude, the furniture is old and dated and her bed side manner needs improvement! She scared me to pieces talking about cancer and crippling, I simply went there for a skin condition and was NOT expecting to hear such fearful info. Stay away!

I went in for a 6 month follow up to get my Plaquenil refilled on June 28. The pharmacy never received the prescriptions from Dr. Cockrill, and then the pharmacy informed me that the doctors office refused to refill it. I called to have the office resend my refills. The receptionist put me on hold to go talk to Dr. Cockrill, and came back to tell me that she still refused to resend the refills and I would have to schedule another follow-up appointment even though I had just been there 2 mo prior

Dr. Cockrill takes time to sit with you and answer all of your questions. She is very clear and provides a plan that actually makes you feel that you saw a doctor.
