It’s all about numbers with doctor Joel Cook. He pushes his staff to get as many patients through as possible. His nursing staff appears to be afraid of him. He took two swipes from my face, after the first I sat in the receptionist area for over two hours. All all of the feeling came back in my face and it was painful. After the second cut I waited out front for over three hours, you can imagine the pain I was in. When Dr Cook came in to perform the closure he said he was going to slide my cheek over to cover the hole in my nose. The nurses in the room question his decision thinking he was going to perform the closure another way. Very sloppy closure it was going to require more surgery to straighten my face. I opted not to let this quack touch me again. On my last visit I asked him about the knot in my nostril that was restricting my breathing. Without looking and as he walked out of the room he said “IT WILL GO AWAY”. Well it’s been three years and it never did. Beware of the butcher.......

If you are reading this review, I am guessing you are in need of Moh's surgery and you are looking for the best surgeon possible. You need look no further, Dr, Cook is your surgeon. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He, and everyone on his staff, are incredibly competent, compassionate and kind. What I thought was going to be a simple procedure on my nose turned out to be way more complicated and required two surgeries for the best outcome possible. It hasn't even been four weeks, but I already am feeling like I look way better than I ever imagined possible at this point. And I have no doubt that within a few months, only those who really know me will ever know I had two surgeries on my face. I am feeling incredibly grateful that I have been in Dr. Cook's care for this journey. If a doctor has to take a scalpel to your face, you most definitely want Dr. Cook to be the one holding that scalpel.

Dr Cook is an exceptional and caring doctor. .The incision on my arm was long but is barely noticeable. He took time to explain the procedure to me and easily rescheduled when I had a personal situation I highly recommend him

This man should not be allowed to do the Mohs procedure. He is arrogant, and he butchered my forehead. A nurse at MUSC told me that the nurses don't like him; they call him Dr. Quick because he does the Mohs in 2 big swipes. He made a huge round hole in my forehead and I will have to live with the scar forever.

I have been seeing Dr. Cook for years. Even after moving from the Charleston area I still travel two hours to be seen my him for Mohs surgery. I just had surgery this past Thursday and he had to do repair. I went in thinking it would be like the previous times but had to actually go back 3 times until he got all the cancer on my nose. Then he had to do reconstructive surgery so I will be going back once a week for the next 5 weeks. It is a scary but Dr. Cook and his staff explained everything as it was happening. I have every confidence in Dr. Cook. Everyone I dealt with made me feel comfortable and cared for. I have recommended him to many others over the years and will continue to do so. The next weeks are concerning wondering if I will ever look the same but I know I am in the best of hands. Thank you Dr. Cook and staff for all you do.

Horrible experiences with this arrogant man. Could care less about patient in my opinion. Multiple scars on nose, deformed nostril. When I got a second opinion from another doctor at musc cook now refuses to see me

He is the ONLY one I would trust with my face. When it come to any kind of recunstruction, sutures etc. , a plastic surgeon could not do a better job - people come from all over the South for his skills. Jennifer Oidtman
