Our office also guarantees the confidentiality of all details disclosed to us by our patients and everything that transpires in our consultations. Dr. Cooke is old school and if you become a patient you will never see a Nurse Prescriber, Physician’s Assistant, or covering physician. Dr. Cooke responds to all calls and addresses issues as promptly as possible. He will provide referrals to other specialists like Neuropsychological Testing, 1:1 individual therapy/CBT, TMS, and Ketamine Infusions when necessary. In office, Telepsychiatry and phone appointments are available to all New York state residents.

Insurances We Accept

Most insurance companies only pay for a limited time for psychiatric services. For this reason, Dr. Cooke no longer takes most insurance because he wants ample time to help his patients. However, he does accept Highmark & Traditional Blue Cross/Blue Shield because those insurance providers allow enough time to be spent with his patients.
For each consultation with us, we will provide an itemized receipt for possible reimbursement from your insurance company as an out-of-network benefit. Please call and check with your insurance company regarding reimbursement for out-of-network providers.
