They did a wonderful job and were very genuine and helpful. I’m from back wrest and I’m visiting friends and I needed to get labs and an EKG among other things but they got me in so fast and a veryunderstanding of my situation but I am working with this case. Hundreds and hundreds of dollars so I can’t thank everyone and all the medical staff and I think that really did help me out a lot and very grateful for you!!!!

Overall the new patient process was not painful, just requiring a basic history. I then waited about 20 minutes for a doctor that essentially told me he really couldn't do anything but give me a recommendation to an orthopedic. I realizethis is now common practice, but even after explaining my issue the doctor did not even touch my knee.

I walked in during a period when no one was seeing patients. I'd already downloaded the forms, scanned my ID and insurance. Made things a lot easier! Pretty sure the first thing I said was "I dont like waiting!". As ifon cue, a swarm of people came to my side, and within minutes I was being seen by the most professional (and handsome) nurse practitioner/med student, Mr. Abdul. Afterwards, Dr. Cook came in to finish and write my prescription. As a new patient, this worked out great! Nice facility, nice staff and no wait time!!! For future visits, I'll make sure I go when no one else does!! Makes a difference!! Again, I don't like waiting!!!

I got there about 12 minutes early and was seen right at my appointment time. So, yes, I had to wait but not longer than scheduled. The Alexandria Location was very very clean and bright. Dr. Cook was amazing to work with again.

Dr. Cook is a very charismatic guy and projects his voice well, this helps because I can be hard of hearing, but that is not why I went to see him. I am a young patient who was having issues digestingand he was very sympathetic to my concerns and always made sure he explained things in terms the patient can understand. We had a very similar personality and he really is a pragmatic person, trying to get to the root of the issue and gives referrals/medicines when needed. I have always left his office with a smile on my face and satisfied with my next steps. I have now put him as my main PCP because of the convenient hours (works weekends and afternoons).

Dr. Cook was fantastic. He was so friendly, listened to my concerns, and made me feel so much better. While I had a negative experience with the office on Monday (they lost my appointment which I needed pretty badly and refusedto help me or apologize) Dr. Cook was apologetic! No one at the front desk apologized to me for something that was THEIR fault except for Dr. Cook. I wasn't going to go back after that experience, but Dr. Cook redeemed the office and I will now only see him.

My appointment with Dr. Cook was great. I went to see him for some general health issues I was having. Originally, I was concerned about whether or not it was appropriate to see him given that the facility is also forurgent care, but that didn't turn out to be an issue as it's also a primary care facility. I was seen quickly and the offices were new and clean. Dr. Cook listened to what I had to say, asked follow-up questions about what I was experiencing, and was very pleasant to visit with. He will be my primary care doctor moving forward.

I don't think I should go on a weekend again. It took a while to be seen, and the staff was some friendly and some very average, a mixed feeling. I was not told to fast so I could not getthe proper blood work done and had to return for a second visit, which was inconvenient. When I did get the blood work, the needle was really jammed around, which caused me to pass out, and I am not usually too bad with needles (never like that, anyway). I'll try again on a weekday for my next appointment before transferring to a new office. The actual treatment/procedures were all perfectly fine otherwise, and the doctor/nurse were both helpful in answering questions.

I think the doctor treated me well at the office. He was nice to check me up and wrote me the prescription. The problem is that when I brought the prescription to CVS pharmacy, I was told that the prescription waswrong and the medicine is no longer produced. CVS called the doctor's office and informed me that because it is a strict prescription, they could not change over the phone or through electric copy. I called the doctor's office and was advised that I should have the pharmacy call to the doctor (which they did but the receptionist told me that no one called to the office for my case). I checked with her if my husband can pass by to pick up the new prescription because I have go to work and she said " yes, but preferably after 2PM". My husband passed by the office and was told that he could not pick up on my behalf due to some rules... (what's happening in this world, do we have nothing to do except going around to pick up the prescription). Then, my husband told them to send the electronic prescription to CVS so we can pick up when I am back from work. I was so careful and called the doctor's office again...and you know what, I was put on hold and then they told me to pass by the office to pick it up (again???) or the doctor suggest I try the medication over the counter (which I did and the cough was still there, that's why I had to see the doctor to have the prescription!!!). I was so angry and told them that I have no time to pass by the office just to pick up the prescription and after that, she told me that the doctor will send the prescription to CVS and I can pick it up in 1 hour. Don't know if there is the prescription for me to pick up or not but I am so upset. How unprofessional working style it is!!! I will never come back again.

It was ok. I was called in exactly at my appointment time and the nurse took weight/blood pressure and stuff before showing me to a room with a "the dr will be in shortly". 40 minutes later, the dr comes byfor what turns out to be a 10-15 minute appointment. A little disconcerted that as I waited in the room I could hear dr cook's conversations with other patients either because he speaks very loudly or the walls are thin.

Doctor Cook and his staff were all very polite and helpful, even making sure that I could see him at their other office location on the day I needed to make my appointment. They went so far as to write theaddress and phone number down for me, as well. Doctor Cook himself was very helpful and accurate. He didn't waste any time telling me what I'd need to feel better, but was very kind and empathetic in his diagnosis. He was also genuinely pleased to see and speak with me the entire visit.
