  • Cardiovascular Disease

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    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.

Amazing physician

After going to another cardiologist in the area for 15 years, neither my husband nor I felt we were getting answers that made sense to our conditions so I contacted Dr. Cook. This doctor is one of the most thorough doctors I have ever met. He takes the time to explain things and speaks with you as if you are an intelligent person. He does not talk down to you but includes you in ever facet of your diagnosis. Although my husband and I didn't like what we heard, we both agree he is doing the best anyone could do to treat our conditions and are confident in his treatment. All of the people in the practice are very helpful and do their utmost to make you comfortable. I am happy to give him a 5 star rating.

Great doctor - very rude receptionist

Dr. Cook seems very nice & knowledgeable. The receptionist is extremely rude & untruthful. Claimed to have left 2 messages of change of appointment times. I can tell from my phone if she called & voice messages. I have no record of either. On another occasion she promised twice to call with a time for a stress test. I had to call her twice to get a time. Unfortunately, a doctor can sometimes be judged by the quality of his or her office staff. Dr. Cook needs to get rid of this receptionist in order for me to continue as a patient. I give a 2 star rating because of the receptionist.
