Dr. Christopher Cook received a doctorate degree in Podiatric Medicine from the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco. After graduating in the top 10% of his class he moved his family to Albuquerque for 3 years of post doctorate surgical training. Dr. Cook has been in private practice in Montrose since 2003 and is board certified in foot and ankle surgery.
Dr. Cook grew up on a ranch between Meeker and Rangely. He enjoyed the outdoors and became very interested in animals. He graduated with a BS in Pre-Veterinary Medicine but through various experiences found a new love for toes.
It’s not really the anatomy that attracted Dr. Cook to podiatric medicine and surgery, but the work and satisfaction involved with helping people overcome pain and deformity. He relates, “It is the never ending challenge of combining the mind with the skills of the hand that keeps this work exciting. The reward is overwhelming when you can help people heal and walk again without pain.”
When Dr. Cook is not amongst feet he enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. Dr. Cook met his wife Dawnell at Brigham Young University where she graduated with a degree in Special Education.His personal interests include amateur herpetology, running, snowboarding, kayaking and hunting. Below are his credentials.

Dr. Kyle Nay attended the University of Utah before completing his doctorate at Midwestern University. After graduation, he returned to Utah for a very competitive and comprehensive three year foot and ankle surgical residency.
Dr. Nay chose to become a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine because without properly functioning feet, the rest of your body will not be able to function as it should. Your feet are the first thing to hit the ground in the morning and the last to leave the ground before bed.
Dr. Nay enjoys high adventure in the outdoors with his family. He has a wife and two children that he loves and adores. Dr. Nay is excited to be making Montrose his new home, and looks forward to meeting you.
