These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Dr. Brent Cole has been our family physician for a number of years. My Dad, my husband and I we all have received exceptional medical care and attention from him. I have also sent several of my friends to Dr. Cole who have been equally delighted with the quality of care they have received from him. In the recent years, under some extraordinary medical situations involving both my Dad and my husband, I have greatly relied on Dr. Cole for expert advice and have not been disappointed. He is prompt, thorough and have always followed up every situation... from most routine to serious emergencies.. with equal care and promptness. I implicitly trust Dr. Cole and hold him in the highest esteem for his skills, knowledge and bedside manners. I wholeheartedly recommend who needs a trustworthy personal physician to go to Dr. Cole
I made an appointment for my husband with Dr. Brent Cole two months in advance. His office told me that was the first appointment available for a new patient. My husband received two phone calls to confirm the appointment in the days leading up to it. On the day of his appointment, he showed up at the office 15 minutes early and the receptionist informed him that the doctor decided not to see patients that day!! To make matters worse, my husband had to pay for parking!!The receptionist wouldn't even offer an apology for this mistake. She insisted that the office had called and tried to reschedule, even though my husband told her that they did not do that. He got two confirmations for the appointment! So disappointing.
