Dr. Cook and his P.A.s, Mike and Chris, were excellent in telling us in detail about my condition, showing me the Echocardiogram, and explaining the options to correct this. We were more than pleased that they treated us like equals and a team member in the decision making process. We were extremely pleased!!
