I had a spot that needed attention. Dr. Cook scraped it off and sent it for analysis.

Dr. Cook was wonderful, I've seen two other providers in the Des Moines area in the past and neither of them can compare to Dr. Cooks attention to detail, skill, and her desire to do her best for her patients, I would definitely recommend her!

Went out of her way to squeeze me in for a procedure the same day as my follow up appointment since I drive from out of town. Both my daughter and I are extremely happy with the results we are getting.
