- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I am surprised by all the negative reviews about Dr Cook. I think Dr Cook is one if the best family doctors I have ever had. I have had quite a few. My original pcp I had since I was a kid retired and I have moved several times and had several different pcps in several cities. I had another family physician in my previous city (also a DO which I prefer) that I really liked, but since I moved again it was just too fair for me to travel. I found one family doc when I first moved to my current city and he was awful. Only saw him twice before switching to Dr Cook. I am so glad I did. Dr Cook really takes the time to go over all the symptoms I have, my history and makes feel like he really cares about getting to the bottom of my issues. That is what good DOs do and why they are more educated than regular MDs. I am not really sure what some of these people expect... you are going to the doctor... not going on a date and the doctor is not there to amuse or entertain you. He is there to treat you.
My Husband and I have been seeing Dr. Cook for three years. We have had both good and bad visits. Occasionally he is nice and other times not so much. He typically keeps his back turned once he is in the room with you and tends to tap his feet a lot like he is impatient and can't wait to leave. This becomes more apparent when you ask questions about his diagnosis or prescription decisions etc. His nursing and office staff has changed a dozen times over the last three years. He seems very abrupt and short tempered with his entire staff; we've witnessed him screaming at them several times. (no wonder they all leave...) The one positive: doesn't sugar coat things which both my husband and I appreciate. The negative: once he makes a decision about you or your health there is no changing his opinion, even if your health changes. The billing at the office is also a hassle. They miss bill the insurance and then try to later re bill the patient. Needles to say, we are in the market for a new PCP.
