Dr. Cook treats adults 18 years and older. If alcohol or drug use has been interfering with family and social life, work, health, emotional stability and/or spiritual life, then substance use is a problem. Substance use affects individuals from all walks of life. Tragically, it impacts the family, friends, and co-workers of each dependent person.

Medical Review Officer
Dr. Cook is a certified medical review officer through MROCC, with back up certified MROs available. The MRO is a required component of a workplace drug testing program. The MRO serves as the common point of contact between all participants in a drug test (i.e., the donor, the collector, the test facility (lab), and the employer).
The MRO review and verification in the drug testing program prevents an employee from being punished for a positive drug test result in situations where the employee is taking legally prescribed medication. All employees with a positive drug test will be called by the MRO and asked about any medical explanation for a positive drug test result. The MRO also confirms chain of custody documentation.
Employers can contact us directly if looking for MRO services by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
