Ratings for Dr. Richard Cook
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.
Dr. Cook performed my dad's heart surgery 2 years ago - a removal of a myxoma tumour combined with a quadruple bypass. Our whole family was very impressed by his approach during the consultation and in preparing my dad for surgery, during a time that was very scary for our family. We feel a lot of gratitude - thank you Dr. Cook!!
