Big problem with time management, waited 1 1/2 hours to see him for an appointment And BIG time management problem

I am 60 yo, a medical professional and have never written a negative review of anything. I felt people need to know there is no respect for anyone's time by Dr. Cooke and his staff.... I waited 1 1/2 hours to see him In his office and it took 3 calls and over 3 weeks to get results for an MRI I had, that he ordered. I myself work with very sick people needing very complicated surgeries and patients might have to wait 10 or 20 minutes b/c the doctor is stuck on a complicated case, but this is unheard off. When I went ahead and scheduled a procedure , they told me to be there 1 hour before and I waited in a gown for over 1 hour past my scheduled Procedure time. When I questioned the nurse in pre op about why the wait was so long and wondered if the rest of the cases would be backed up, she stated Dr. Cooke is always the last MD in the room.... so other MD's don't have to wait for him, obviously.All I can say is not worth the the long waits!!

One Of The Best Doctors I've Ever Had

I first saw Dr Cooke about 2 years ago for back pain. After a VERY lengthy examination and review of my MRI, it was determined that I had a herniated disc. He gave me the epidural injection, and what a difference it made in the quality of life. I have about 2 injections per year, which is way better than having back surgery! Dr Cooke spends all the time in the world with you. You may have to wait a little longer in the waiting room, but it is well worth it. Most other doctors give you 5 minutes at best. When I have had questions, he has personally called me at home to offer advice. He will educate you as well as treat you. He showed me my MRI and explained what the herniation is and why it hurts so much. He is indeed the best doctor that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. I trust him implicitly!

You just have to be willing to work hard and be patient with the road of recovery.
