Been in twice now but with a 3year gap (my fault actually). I'm just Very stubborn when it comes to seeing a doctor, I'm a "I can fix it myself" guy 100%. Kathy Cook was very helpful, hopeful and obviously knowledgable. Felt like she wanted to help me and not just want my money, I'm very biased and possibly naive about all doctors being in it for the $$$$$$$ and not giving an F about patients (atleast I can admit that right?). Anyways, she was very good to me and I hope this new added treatment helps. Thank you Kathy Cook.

I have been going to Dr Cook for a long time and always feel like I get all of the information that I need and that I'm well taken care of. I have lots of skin issues with pre-cancer and squamous cell cancer and i trust her completely to take care of this for me.

Twice was billed via mail after paying at office day of service but now I believe issue resolved. On Feb 26, nurse was insistent that I had used Bootox special on Oct 31 when in fact I purchased it that day after Kathy told me about it during my Oct 30 Botox appt. I was positive I hadn’t used the special deal yet and said I would figure it out once I got home and accessed my laptop. She did finally realize from contacting the front desk her mixup but didn’t apologize to me. She truly made me feel like I was confused which I guess I felt lacked professionalism.
