Dr. Cook came highly recommended and I see why. Very kind and professional. So happy I chose this office for my skin needs!!

The process for making an appt is a little cumbersome. Sometimes it goes smoothly - the call is picked up right away, appt gets booked - but I've had some times where the call is answered, I get transferred somewhere to a person who doesn't seem all that familiar with making appts or is just too busy, or my transfer gets dropped somewhere along the line. I'd much rather call the Ames office and talk to Kris directly. I feel like she knows me, knows what I'm being treated for, etc, whereas with this new process, I feel like appt making has been outsourced to some service and the personal touch has been lost. :-( I've been seeing Dr. Cook for years - over 15 years - and she's great. I wouldn't see any other dermatologist.
