Not good. Went to him for left hip pain. After his diagnosis ........ an MRI of the right hip was ordered. I questioned the right hip order, Dr Cole confirmed the right hip MRI. Its the LEFT hip !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Additionally I feel the office charges were hugely inflated. In addition to the regular office visit there is a charge for (prolonged services) to the tune of $392.00.

i have only been a patient of Dr Cole's for a short time,however i have been a longtime chronic pain patient.For many years i have wanted a pain doctor like Dr. Cole. The competence and quickness of all of the staff is remarkable. Everyone is so pleasant and wanting to help. From when you first walk in to smiling faces till you leave saying goodbye,with the same smiling faces. The medical staff are kind,patient and knowlegable, a rare trifecta. Lastly Dr.Cole himself. It is he that sets the tone for the office. Here is a doctor that listens and cares, often difficult qualities in today's fast paced medical scene. He wants to help his patients with the greatest compassion and empathy.He uses a sense of humor and a brilliant mind to deal with his patients. I can honestly say i am happy and proud to be a patient of this office.
