I traveled from Ohio to New Orleans in June & October of 98. I would go back down there for treatment if I could afford it. I highly recommend Dr. Cook. He is the first doctor that really listened to me and my pain. The staff is wonderful !! Just be prepared for a complete overhaul of tests before any surgery. Have you been to his website? It is <A HREF="http://www.drcook.com/">Dr. Cook's Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Information Center</A>. If you have any questions about Dr. Cook, Omega or New Orleans ie.. where to stay.... just email me!
