Went to Dr Cook for a second opinion after the first Doc said I would need fusion surgery and be laid up for 2-3 months. Dr Cook was able to fix me without fusion and I went home the same day. Outstanding bedside manner and skills! Also Lowell Hospital was a pleasant surprise. I have recommended my daughter and my brother to see him for other back and neck issues.
