Dr. Dottie Cook took on the challenge of helping me learn how to change my life 2/11/2013. I never imagined the impact that one hour would make on the rest of my life. She has never given up on me - seeing me thru my highs and lows, cheering me on every step of the way. Because of Dr. Cook's belief in me, I BELIVE IN ME! I greatly respect Dr. Cook's opinions and believe her love and care for her patients is 24/7. She naturally loves helping people and I believe long after she retires she wi

I have seen Dottie for a while and she is not only my Nurse practitioner but a wonderful friend. If you want someone who is very caring and don’t pull no punches this is who you need to see! I’m forever grateful to Dottie for her patient care and her hugs to let me know “hey I’m here for you” means more than anything!??

Dr. Cook is by far the best doctor I've been to, she saved my life by figuring out I was misdiagnosed 13 years ago, and is getting me on the right track with my diabetes. Thank you dr. Cook for all you have done and continue to do for me.

I have not had good experiences with doctors so I have been avoiding them..until I found Dr. Dottie Cook at Thomas Internal Medicine. She has a fabulous bedside manner. Very thorough and extremely knowledgeable. Outstanding staff and professionalism. It is obvious Dr. Cook loves what she does and is in it for all the right reasons.

Best Dr I have ever used! She genuinely cares for patients and health. Most Drs just write medicine without finding root of problem..Not Mrs Dottie she finds out everything and tests anything questionable.She also has the best sense of humor ! I’m always extra excited for Dr visits she is the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) ?? of Drs in my lifetime!! The Best !!!

My husband has spent 2 yrs to find out what was causing his pain. He was unable to work & some days he was in so much pain he couldn't function. We saw every specialist & had tests galore. Then we spent 1 year going to Mayo with the same results-no answers. We told Dottie what he's gone thru & after reading 5" of medical records & a series of questions she gave her diagnoses. In 2 wks his pain has diminished, he's gained 4 lbs after losing 30+ & looks like himself again. Dottie is a gift!

I have been under medical care for 10 yrs and have had many doctors I was not happy with UNTIL I found Dottie! She is the most thorough person I have ever met.. I love her down home personality and she listens when you talk and works with you.. I honestly don't know where I would be w/o her now. I highly recommend going to see her especially if you have been searching for that dr who will listen. Thanks Dottie for always being there for me!

I have to say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Dottie! We had her for over 10 years before she retired. We were so heartbroken when she retired. We connected back up with her at her new office. We immediately transferred to her and couldn't be more happier! She listens, understanding and tells you what her ideas are and then we discuss what direction to go! I wish we cud leave herva MILLION stars!

Dottie cook is one of the most kind-hearted provider that i have ever been to, she truly cares about the well being of her patients and does whatever it takes to improve their quality of life. She is very knowledgeable and down to earth. If you want a provider that actually listens to your concerns and does everything in her power to ease your concerns, COME SEE DOTTIE. She is truly the best. They have short wait times and the friendliest staff to top it off.

I have been a patient with Dottie for several yrs. I have recommended several of my friends and family to her. She treats me like family not just another patient. She takes the time to explain things and never beats around the bush she is straight forward and I love that. I recommend her office to anyone seeking a hometown feel of a doctor

I have been with Dorothy Cook for many years. I stay with her because of her professionalism, knowledge, and how she treats her patients. She has never let me down. Her and the staff are excellent in every way meeting my needs as well as my family's now. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my life, and I recommend her to everyone in need of an excellent provider.

I have been with Dotty for 9 years now. She is awesome. I have sent my husband and every one else I know to her. She listens when you tell her something is wrong and she keeps going till she finds the problem and fixes it. When you are her patient you are a person not just a chart.

I've been going to her for a long time now and she's the first one to really listen to my health issues and figure out what was wrong, help me get answers and get my health back on track. She really cares about her patients. Her patients aren't just a number, she knows your name, your family & goes above & beyond anyone out there!! I wouldn't go to anyone else! Wouldn't have my family go to anyone else either. She's old school.. That's hard to find these days.

I have sexual abuse/rape in my background. I'm sharing this because I hope it will help someone. I refused to ever let anyone touch me-especially for a PAP. Finally,? at age 33? my mom convinced me to let Dottie try. It was my first time meeting her, but she used a pediatric speculum and kept my mind off of it by joking with me. As sensitive as I am, she was done before I knew she had begun. She was very sensitive to my needs and I've been with her ever since-10 yrs ago! Go see her!
