I must say that the office staff of Dr. Briggs Cook are friendly, attentive and helpful. However, you should never judge a surgeon by his office staff! I leaned my lesson!! I have since talked with qualified, reputable and even famous plastic surgeons and their office staff cannot compare with the Briggs Cook staff. Remember, it is not the office staff you care about but the skill of the surgeon. It is all about the skill!!

Briggs Cook is an Ophthalmologist who performs plastic surgery on the eyelids and face lifts. The problem with Dr Cook is that if he has to perform any procedure outside his cookie cutter operations, he makes terrible and incorrect decisions. He wanted to remove a mole on the side of my eye and in doing so, cut outside of the crease resulting in an unsightly scar that I am going to have to correct with another sugery.

I had 2 famous plastic surgeons tell me what Dr. Cook did to my eye was WRONG! They told me he should have never placed the incision where he did.

Don't go to Dr Cook for any plastic surgery. He is not qualified to make the decisions of a board certified plastic surgeon. Board certified plastic surgeons have to fix what the Ophthalmologists mess up! Don't let an Ophthalmologist cut on you!

A reputable plastic surgeon may cost more but you will be guaranteed a pleasant outcome and most importantly... the procedure will last longer!
