Biography

Dr. Cook specializes in caring for people who have blood cancers (such as leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome), some of whom may need a bone marrow transplant. She is interested in helping patients make good decisions about their treatment options and supporting them through a difficult time.  

In her spare time, Dr. Cook spends time with her husband and their three daughters. She also has a large dog, Baxter, with whom she shares a love of the outdoors. She likes to run to clear her head, and loves cooking for her family. If she has free time, she walks in the woods.
