    How was your appointment with Dr. Cole?

    Aug 16, 2017
    Met with Dr. Cole after experiencing some thyroid and hair loss issues and he is amazing. Very caring and thorough. He is willing to cover his bases to figure out the problem and willing to advocate for you. He has no problem with continuum of care speaking with other specialists if eneeded to get to the bottom of the issue. Listens as well and comes up with a game plan. Highly recommended!
