Dr. Rachel Sudderth Cook
Dr. Rachel Sudderth Cook graduated from Texas A&M University and is a proud Aggie. She joined the Animal Medical Center of Plano in June 2015. Her professional interests include internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, dermatology, neurology, ophthalmology, and preventative medicine.
Dr. Cook has a passion for the human-animal bond: the special relationship between pets and their people. She looks forward to developing lifelong relationships with her clients, their families, and their furry friends through education, collaboration and open communication.
Dr. Cook particularly enjoys the educational aspect of her profession, taking time to listen to her clients and make sure they understand their pets medical needs.
Dr. Cook grew up in Dallas. She graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio with a double major in Psychology and Sociology. She thoroughly enjoyed her liberal arts education and spent a semester abroad in Rome, Italy. She returned to school at the University of Texas at Dallas to complete her pre-veterinary science courses while working at veterinary hospitals and a human pharmacy in the DFW Metroplex. Prior to starting veterinary school at Texas A&M, she lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for a year where she learned to appreciate the rich culture and history that that area has to offer. Dr. Cook also learned just how cold winters away from Texas can get! Ask her about her time there; she loves to share her experiences and insight.
When not at the clinic, Dr. Cook enjoys spending time with her family at the family ranch in West Texas, hiking, traveling, photography, and attempts at learning to cook. On any day of the week, she and her husband, Matt, can be found with a cup of coffee, a good book, and plans to get outdoors to enjoy the day. They have a Labrador named Lady, who is NOT blind but is known to blink in almost every photo.
