Meet The Doctors

Doc Cook and Dory 2019

Robert Cook , DVM

Dr. Cook has limited his practice to surgery, with an emphasis on minimally invasive surgical procedures. These procedures are available to our clients and to other patients by referral from their primary care veterinarians. We have made a considerable investment in time and resources to provide these services. We believe they represent a significant improvement in the treatment of many conditions. Our most common minimally invasive procedures include: flexible gastrointestinal endoscopy, laparoscopy, and arthroscopy (joint surgery). Please ask if you have any questions regarding these types of surgery.
