The office nursing staff, doctor, PA's were wonderful! They were so caring and extremely efficient in diagnosing the problem I was having with my health. All of my questions were answered and they made me feel "special" and relieved all my concerns.

Two tests and appt with Dr Cook progressed in a timely fashion. I will be pleased to return to HVI next year for the follow-up.

April 25, 2016

I could not be more pleased with the quality of my care and your people; from the surgeon to the person who emptied the trash. Everyone worked together as a fine team. I would (and have) highly recommend UPMC Passivant.

April 25, 2016

I would say that I had a good experience with Dr. Cook and his staff. They were always attentive and there when they were needed.

April 13, 2016

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!!

March 14, 2016

My experience was all very positive. I don't have any complaints. Everyone who helped me was friendly and easy to deal with. This helped me to recover quicker.

March 03, 2016

Dr Cook is very reputable and saved my life. I would recommend him to all my loved ones
