“I’m a general internal medicine physician. I began working with Advocate as a private practice physician in 2009. Having had several mentors in medicine made it very easy for me to choose a career in medicine….The key to the doctor-patient relationship is really getting to know who your patient is and understanding what it is that they’re desiring ….

Lifestyle, combined with proper screening techniques…can meet optimal health down the road.” –Dr. Gerald L. Cooke, YouTube.com
