My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

When I was young I observed the joy my father, a family physician, experienced when helping others and caring for his patients. That was the reason for my determination to be a physician. He gave me some sound advice that I consider very important, “Listen to your patients.” Attentive listening and utilizing up-to-date information and technology will help us form a close partnership to achieve your optimal health. I am also confident that our friendly and competent staff will make you feel at home and part of our family.

from David in TX February 28, 2018 for J. Robert Cone, MD

I recently had an issue with my knee that was causing me pain for nearly a week. I decided that it would be best to make sure that there was no serious injury that needed to be addressed. I called to get an appointment and to my surprise was able to get in to Dr. Cone that day. Dr. Cone evaluated my knee and there was no need to seek additional services but rather just over use and age.… See more
