Biography & Education

What drew me to the OB/GYN practice was the remarkable opportunity to take care of women through so many critical parts of their lives, from puberty through menopause. The long term relationships I have with my patients are often like lifelong friendships. I have learned many things in the 20 years I have been in practice...the most important ones are to listen & learn.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Cole is excellent, personable & down to earth.
Swedish Patient

I really liked Dr. Cole and going forward she will be my gynecologist.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Cole is an exceptional doctor in all areas. She is highly qualified, cares about her patients, and makes you feel very comfortable. I feel fortunate to have her as my doctor.
Swedish Patient

Seems like she is burned out. I got a biopsy but no other physical exam so if it's not cancer, I still won't know what is wrong with me.
