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.

I have been seeing Doctor Cole for nearly 30 years now and think she is the absolute best! I have friends that don't enjoying doing their annual doctor's visit but it feels like coming home to an old friend. I can also appreciate her kind ways of suggesting loose a few pounds compared to other doctors.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Cole and her staff has always done a wonderful job for me. Clearly we are a team.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Cole is the best.
Swedish Patient

All good!!!
Swedish Patient

Dr. Cole is simply the best at what she does. She goes the extra mile to make sure appropriate tests are done and if I need to work with someone else at Minor and James, she will facilitate it very willingly and proactively. I feel very fortunate and in very good care in Dr. Cole's hands. She is very smart and quick and professional.
Swedish Patient

I like Dr. Cole a lot. I've been seeing her for over 20 years. I just dislike the garage and inconvenient location.

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.
