I was pleased with everything and everyone I encountered. I am so glad to have found this practice.
She was professional, yet very welcoming. She was attentive and answered my questions.
As always, Dr. Cockerill exhibited superior communication skills, medical knowledge, and sincere concern for the patient. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Dr. Cockerill to anyone in need of a quality ENT. The wait time for this office is usually within at least 15 minutes of my appointment time. Today, however, one of the front desk clerks had forgotten to check me in, which has never happened before! Oops!
Very personable, listened to information that I gave her, and was very helpful in going forward.
Dr. Cockerill was very kind and patient with me. She addressed all of my concerns. I was also seen very quickly - there was hardly a wait. I definitely recommend Dr. Cockerill!
Fast, professional, and above all, she showed me how to cure my problem in one visit ! WITHOUT MEDS Can I give her more than five stars ?
Dr. Cara Cockerill was very attentive and professional during my visit with her. She wonderfully addressed all my concerns to my full satisfaction. I would highly recommend her to anyone who suffers from allergies or snoring issues.
I felt that Dr. Cockerill gave me a thorough in-office exam, which included a conversational interview regarding my symptoms and history. In addition, she promptly set me up for additional testing to determine the cause of my symptoms and appropriate treatments. I was particularly impressed with Dr. Cockerill's empathy, knowledge, and genuine concern for helping begin feeling better soon! I will definitely continue to use Dr. Cockerill and recommend her to others in need of a quality ENT in the New Braunfels area.
She was professional, compassionate and I would recommend her to all my fellow nurse and physician friends!
I loved Dr. Cockerill. She is professional and very capable. She answered all questions, even the tricky ones, with honesty and compassion. After my successful surgery, she continued to research the cause of my problem. She is very thorough. I couldn't have been more pleased.
Professional and prompt
She is very nice and helpful.
The visit went very well. I will follow her directions and wait of a favorable result.
Dr. Cockerill is a Godsend! She removed our daughter's tonsils and adoids, and put tubes in her ears two weeks ago today. She suffered for more than three years each and every night in the fall and winter time due to horrible allergies. The only regret we have is that we didn't do it much sooner. Dr. Cockerill was absolutely wonderful to us every step of the way. She was so patient, kind, and warm and we really cannot say enough good things about her. We live 45 minutes away but she is worth the drive and we cannot ever consider anyone else for any member of our family! The only not great experience was the front desk staff. The two women at the windows have always been rude and so unpleasant. They really behave as if they don't care to help you and the one person, Beverly, basically said as much to both me and my husband. I wish neither one of them was staffed there but they're not enough to sway us from seeing Dr. Cockerill.
She was very sincere and caring about my health problem. We made a plan that I'm hoping will work for me.
Caring and complete care given while paying attention to patient questions and concerns.
Dr Cockreill is very sweet and professional. My ENT retired and I was worried about finding another one I trusted......I'm so glad I found Dr Cockerill.
So professional yet easy to talk to. Wonderful experience.
Love this doctor and would recommend her to everyone! She is very thorough.
