With humble beginnings, Dr. Carolyn Cooke was raised in Southern Indiana along with three other siblings. Many obstacles in life tested Dr. Cooke’s lifelong passion to deliver care to others. Impoverished living conditions and discouraging gender role ideologies created a sense of disparagement. Despite the odds, she overcame the environmental constraints of her childhood and finished her prior high school career before enrolling in nursing school. As a Registered Nurse, she gained invaluable experience and through her lengthy career, she developed the confidence needed to continue her education to become a Medical Doctor. In 2000, Dr. Cooke graduated from Medical School and later completed the Deaconess Family Medicine Residency Program in 2003 to become the first M.D. in her family.
Dr. Cooke has over twenty years’ experience delivering quality healthcare to patients of all backgrounds in a variety of settings, including urgent care and family medicine. Dr. Cooke believes she was put on earth to care for patients and has devoted her life to her profession.
