Dr. Carolyn Cooke's Ratings
The best thing about Dr. Cooke's office is her secretary Janet. Janet is on point. She is efficient, she'll answer all of your questions and she'll do it correctly. In fact, at times I felt like I was Janet's patient and not Dr. Cooke's. When I was a patient of Dr. Cooke's, I didn't see her very often. She was hard to get a hold of and when I did speak to her I found her communication style to be difficult to understand. She tended to use very technical medical language, and as a layperson, I had to ask a lot of questions just to understand what was going on. In terms of her treatment plan, I later discovered that her suggestions were not appropriate for my specific case. So basically I wasted my time and money. The most agitating part of my experience at Rouge Valley were the interactions I had with one of her nurses. Fertility patients see the nurses a few times a month, and my experience with one particular nurse was consistently unpleasant. I got the distinct feeling that she did not like patients. I'd hear her complaining about other patients, and when she spoke to me, she literally would not make eye contact at all. She'd rush in the room, read off the results, and then rush you out. There wasn't even time to ask questions! And to top it off, they'd forget to tell you important information! Once the nurse forgot to tell me to stop taking a very expensive hormone stimulating drug. The first time I went to the clinic, they neglected to tell me to arrive with a full bladder. When I arrived with an empty bladder (because who carries around a bladder full of urine if they don't have to), they scolded me. When I told them that I wasn't informed, they scolded me AGAIN for not reading the information package which wasn't given to me either! There are good things about the clinic- like the blood work people, the secretaries and one of the nurses is nice.
If u harry to be pregnant so dont go to this Dr.. She not friendy and unhumble ,
The office servies its bad , i was with this dr for 4 month and nothing move just spent ur time and money.
Look for dr else .
My wife and i had a horrible experience with Dr Cooke. she had my wife going in for over a year every other morning to monitor her cycle, she kept giving my wife hormones with miss calculated dosage on several occasions, took over $12,000 from us for my wife’s treatment and then says the problem is the sperm. This would have been great to hear at the beginning of our treatment but was not informed what so ever that the problems was in the sperm until the last visit we had with her a year after starting the monitoring. She treats you like an ATM and when the money is out or you question her she will make sure you feel helpless and alone. My wife went through allot with Dr Cooke’s rude manner, constant change of diagnosis and then putting the blame elsewhere and not feeling accountable for the small fortune she took from us. We are still not pregnant and my wife might never be able to have a child because of the excessive abuse to her ovaries through the hormone injections she took for over a year. Save your time and money and look for another Dr.
What a terrible doctor. Impossible to reach. She basically treats you like an ATM machine. She pretends to be pleasant during your first meeting then once you start handing over your money she is rude as if I am bothering her with my pregnacy. I would recommend you go elsewhere. Any other doctor s better than Dr "crook"
I have to say my experience with Dr. Cooke has been fantastic. This was the second clinic I went to for answers. I told her what my previous doctor told me (unexplained) and that I wanted an answer, good or bad. I did a ton of testing and she gave me my answer. I'm now being referred for surgery to fix my issue and I couldn't be happier. I will say - the receptionist isn't the nicest person, but everyone else was great.
First of all, the receptionist is very rude. Dr Cooke is very difficult to reach when you have a question, which is unfair considering that we are not only patients but paying clients as well. After a few tests, she told me I fell under the category of unexplained infertility. She kept giving me iui's, and it never worked. I smartened up and left for another clinic, where upon examining the results of the tests from Rouge, I was told that it was clear as day that I had endometriosis. When I first read the comments on this doctor I decided to ignore them because I thought that maybe her "happier" patients just didn't have time to write positive comments. I was wrong! Please consider her ratings before you spend thousands of dollars on false hope. Do NOT settle on this clinic because it is the only fertility clinic in Scarborough. In the end you waste your time and money.
I was sent to Dr. Cooke and I was fully confident about her at the begining. the clinic is clean and staff were nice. After all the test, I was told I was healthy except age. Then I picked IUI with the most expensive medication to start, however, all ended BFN. after two attempt, I started to question if we missed any test. she said no except my age. I was 41. When I decided to leave the clinic, I was told by another doctor both of my tubes are blocked and Dr. Cooke didn't do the HSG test to me. What a joke. Money is one thing, Time is the most important thing. If I were told it is because of the tube, I would go IVF at the beginning. I definitely won't recommend her.
I was seeing Dr. cooke a couple of years ago because of unexplained miscarriages. After spending money on tests and medication I became pregnant on my own again. At seven weeks I was told in a very cold reptilian manner that my baby was dead. She said that she was only to get me pregnant, not find out why I was losing them. I wonder why she even saw me to begin with since that was the reason I was sent to her to begin with. I felt like a number in the clinic, left in an overcrowded waiting room for lengthy periods of time. I have since found a wonderful clinic that was interested in finding out the problem, and lucky me, was successful. Some doctors I have been told are only interested in what makes them money...not actually helping the client...and that is the kind of doctor that dr. cooke is... If you want a baby, and a bit of kindness if you are unfortunate to miscarry after the struggle to conceive, please find someone else to help. Do not waste precious time and money !!!!
I have nothing but gratitude for this doctor. She is knowledgeable, professional, and treated me with dignity and respect while trying to help me achieve my dream of having a child. After careful diagnostic testing (which I would expect before delving into expensive procedures such as IVF), she came up with a treatment plan in consultation with myself and my husband. After two IUI's and one round of IVF we were blessed with beautiful twin girls, but even if I never got pregnant, I wouldn't have said anything negative about her as she does her best to work with your personal situation and we have to remember that she is trying to use tools, not cures to help those with infertility. I am forever grateful that I was referred to Dr. Cooke as my fertility specialist and I thank her for giving so much of her time to take phone calls and appointments on weekends and even holidays to help others achieve their dreams and personal happiness. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
I was a patient of Dr. Cooke's for a couple of years. We went through a lot of ups and downs at the clinic. Yes she was late sometimes. It's not as if you are seeing her daily or weekly. The nurses, ultra sound techs & lab techs were all wonderful. None of them were ever rude or cold towards me. The only problem we ever had was with JANET, the receptionist. That woman needs a reality check on what her position is. Receptionist's are the voice of every business. When you have one that is rude, miserable all the time, unplesant and patronizing, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Nobody needs to deal with someone like that when they are going through fertility issues. I've talked to SO many patients in the waiting room, none have ever had a nice thing to say about her. I stopped going there because of HER. I just couldn't deal with the stress of being talked down to so rudely anymore. We were successful having a son, but I will NOT be going there to try for baby #2.
