WINNETKA, IL, January 18, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — John Q. Cook, MD, has been recognized as a 2024 Castle Connolly Top Doctor — the 24th time he has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor! Only about 7 percent of the nation’s licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.

Dr. Cook is a well-regarded plastic surgeon, a Chicago native, and the medical director of Whole Beauty® Institute, the practice he founded in 1988.

Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Cook uses state-of-the-art technologies and techniques — both surgical and non-surgical — to skillfully perform a variety of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for the face, breasts, and body.

He is particularly known for his innovative techniques of facial rejuvenation, plastic surgery of the breasts, and body contour — and his focus on refining, enhancing, and restoring the natural form of each patient. Dr. Cook routinely lectures at national and international conferences on his innovative techniques.

Dr. Cook says that his work often leads patients to lead healthier lives overall.

“It’s gratifying when patients say they feel good about themselves after surgery, because they often start taking better care of themselves in general and seeing the health benefits,” Dr. Cook says. “We try to build on patients’ positive feelings about their appearances and encourage them to adapt lifestyles that improve their health and well-being.”

Whole Beauty Institute has Chicago/Gold Coast and Winnetka/North Shore locations.

In addition to Dr. Cook’s clinical activities, he serves as an assistant professor of plastic surgery at Rush Medical College.

Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.

This is the 24th consecutive year that Dr. Cook has been recognized by his peers with this award. He attributes this distinction to his deep commitment to medical excellence and service. He provides his patients with a caring environment and with a team of trusted clinicians who use their expertise to put patient care and safety first.

Dr. Cook earned his medical degree at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He completed a four-year surgery residency at the Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center and a three-year plastic surgery residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

He is affiliated with Rush University Medical Center.
