Diverse approach distinguishes NYC doctor
Dr. Claudia M. Cooke | New York
Ellen Ervin says her psychian's well-rounded approach has made a difference for more than a decade.
"Dr. Cooke has been my internist for more than 10 years," Ervin says. "She is a top physician and, at age 80, I've had a lot of experience with doctors. In addition to her excellent training in conventional Western medicine, she knows acupuncture, hypnotism and Asian medicine.
"She also keeps up on the literature and knows which supplements are helpful and which are a waste of money. Her initial intake was long and careful, including environmental factors not yet being generally discussed. And, also important to me, she is warm and friendly and a good listener."
In a recent poll, more than 56 percent of Angie's List members said the effectiveness of their doctor's treatment was the most important factor in choosing a health care provider.
