No words can express my appreciation for Dr. Cook and the VGH staff. This man could obviously excel and become extremely wealthy as a entrepreneur , but instead use his skills to save lives.

A year and a half ago, Dr Cook did a valve replacement and a double bypass for my Mom. Today, my Mom is on a plane headed for a Caribbean cruise with the entire family. Thank you Dr Cook!

Well Dr. Cook, I'm approaching my 9th anniversary in June of my quintuple bypass performed by you. I was 58 at the time. Since then, I've helped raise my two wonderful grandchildren now 4 and 6. I'm retired as well as my wife of 40 years. I have it all as a result of your skill and dedication. Not to mention all the team around you at VGH. THANK YOU so much.

I had Dr.Cook for bypass surgery in 2008. He asked if I would allow the team to use Jack the robot for my surgery. I asked him about the advantages of using a robot and he answeared all questions with very reasonalable answers so I signed the consent forms. He and the whole staff were the best doctors and support people I have ever had. Thanks for keeping me alive and well.

One of the best minimally invasive heart surgeon in BC. He is always calm, friendly and super knowledgeable. I was so well that I got sent home 4 days after my valve replacement surgery at VGH. Thank you so much for saving my life Dr. Cook!

Dr Richard Cook did a bypass operation on me using the Minimally Invasive Direct Cardiac Arterial Bypass (MID-CAB) on November 26, 2014. It was done so well I felt like a normal person on the 3rd day after the surgery, with only minimal pain from deep breathing. On the 6th day, my condition was so improved that I had to remind myself that I had just gone through an operation and that I had to allow my body to heal.
