Kathy and her staff have always been very friendly and have acted professionally during all of my experiences with her. She is my go-to doctor for any of my skin problems. I actually look forward to my next visit with her for these reasons.

I have been going to Dr. Cook for about 17 years. I trust her completely with all of my dermatological needs. I had melanoma about 10 years ago, and Dr. Cook was wonderful! She is highly skilled and knowledgeable. I wouldn’t want to go to anyone else!

Dr. Cook was quick, focused, professional. My concerns are allayed. Cut through amateur, online bloviation and uninformed worry--just do it. I am thoroughly pleased.

I was seen promptly, was given the opportunity to express concerns and ask questions, and was examined and treated in a timely manner. I don't believe the experience could have been better.
