I have been seeing Dr. Cook for over a year. From the ease of making appointments to the bedside manner of every single staff member to working with Dr. Briggs himself I have been thrilled. The staff remembers my name, the office is clean and beautiful and the prices for services is appropriate. Dr. Cook is quick, gentle and friendly. They have a lifelong patient/client in me.
My late Grandma use to tell me "there is no fun in growing old". I often think of that when I see more and more gray hairs and the fine lines multiply. However I am going to do all I can to combat it thus my visit to Dr. Cook's. My experiences have always been positive and my expectations met. I was made to feel at ease and welcomed. While this is an extremely professional medical office, there isn't a "stuffy, uptight "atmosphere. I also like the fact Dr. Cook only "works on faces" i prefer a specialist vs. a generalist. I had an eyelift in 2014 and had great results with all that being said, I will continue traveling an hour and fifteen minutes for an appointment. While yes Grandma it is no fun. I will do all I can to enjoy it.
