Ratings for Dr. Sonya Cook
I had a great experience at this clinic. My GP was worried about a spot on my back and sent me to Dr. Cook. They called me with an emergency appointment one day later and Dr. Cook removed a melanoma cancer. Everyone at Compass Dermatology was very professional and I felt that I got excellent care. Dr. Cook took her time explaining the other treatments that I needed and I never felt rushed. She was very patient and I have complete faith in her.
I had strange callouses on my ankles for 18 months. Dr. Cook gave me Betaderm which did not help them to heal. I asked a pharmacist if he had any suggestions about treating them. He advised me to use callous removers. Amazingly, the callous removers are working beautifully. Strange that the pharmacist appears to know more than this doctor. All that wasted time!!!
Dr. Cook is abrupt and dismissive, and unwilling to discuss her treatment recommendations. Her practice is highly inefficient. Patients are asked to arrive 15 minutes ahead of their appointed time, but a wait of 90 minutes is not even acknowledged by the office staff or by Dr. Cook. It's rude to give no value at all to a patient's time and to not apologize for being so far behind schedule.
I have just visited the nicest, most patient Dermatologist, Dr. Cook. This is my second visit and although they say expect to wait up to an hour, I understand this is how the medical field works, so I bring a book, just in case. Dr. Cook never makes me feel rushed, although it is a very busy spot with many in the waiting room, as well there is another Doctor today as well. She is helpful, listens, and doesn't talk down to you. I will return here with my daughter. I have also discussed Laser treatments for my face, and I really enjoyed the ease of the laser technician, and her honest opinions, I will recommend this place to others, as long as they know there will have to wait, this is not a fast food service environment. This IS our healthcare. THANK YOU Dr. Cook.
I have never had a problem with Dr. Cook, but I find her receptionists to be the most abrasive, and unhelpful I've ever encountered. They are inflexible, impatient and seem to be lacking in any kind of discretion. They dole out appointments like they are doling out gold. If I leave Dr. Cook it will be because of the receptionists.
I appreciate Dr. Cook very much. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, friendly, helpful and listens. Sometimes you have to wait for her as she runs late…that is because she takes the time to listen and investigate your concern. I don't mind waiting knowing that she is helping someone. Like a previous post said, I wish she was my GP. A breath of fresh air. I trust her and her knowledge.
I was waiting for her around 40 mins and she talked to me like 1 minute.I am not going to come back to her! Today I was researching what she prescribed and i am going to stop using it because apparently it`s extremly dangerous for health and of course and she didn`t mention that!!! I am a younge lady and this medication is dangerous if you concieve a baby. according to her i have to use forever. Honestly, i have just mild acne. Stay away from this doctor.
I have been seeing Dr. Cook for years. I started seeing her for acne (which is gone!) and I now see her for cosmetic work. She is lovely and very good at what she does. I get Botox from her and just started fillers. I like her because she is not pushy at all and does a great job. I actually look forward to my appointments. LOL!!
