Our Story

What started in 1998 as one man’s initiative to provide healthcare to uninsured local residents has blossomed into a lifeline for thousands. Dr. David Cook of then Lakeside Family Physicians, recognized the overwhelming need as soon as he began seeing a handful of uninsured patients in the back of a grocery store.

Dr. Cook and April Cook partnered with four area churches—Davidson United Methodist, First Baptist Church of Huntersville, St. Mark Catholic, and Meadow Lake Presbyterian—to launch the Lake Norman Community Health Clinic, a free clinic in the basement of the First Baptist Church of Huntersville, in 2001.

I arrived for my appointment and everyone at the Clinic was so nice. The nurse practitioner and the other nurses always talked with me, made me laugh, and most of all gave me hope.

Cook Community Clinic is a place of hope. It is knowing that when I come here, regardless of what money I have in my pocket, I’m not going to be turned away.”

During my time as a translator and patient at Cook Community Clinic, I was able to witness the love that the clinic puts toward the patients. The clinic is personalized and intimate in this way. It is like family.

I came to the clinic in 2013. My sugar was way out of whack, now it’s the best I’ve ever seen it. I love Lake Norman and all of the people are wonderful.

About two years ago, I was in need of healthcare and I did not have health insurance…I did my research and realized Cook Community Clinic was close to my house so I called immediately. The staff treated me so kindly and I felt like I was in a private health care office. My health needs were treated by awesome physicians and since then I have been telling others. Times are hard these days, but a person’s health should not be compromised.

The programs offered by this clinic have not only changed my life, but they have impacted those around me who I love and care about. I feel confident about fighting diabetes, and with the team at CCC supporting me, I feel stronger and more educated.

I am so glad I was introduced to Cook Community Clinic in 2011. I had no insurance coverage and I got the same treatment as if I was a million dollar patient. The atmosphere is awesome with such wonderful staff from the front desk to nurses and Doctors. I feel real good about this clinic.

The clinic is not a patient mill, rather it is a place where the patient has the time to talk about current issues and the clinical staff is able to guide you to the right path. As my time as a patient at CCC comes to an end, I am only hopeful that I can receive this kind of care going forward.

I didn’t know what to expect from the clinic, but was very pleasantly surprised at the friendly and caring atmosphere. It was so wonderful to be treated in such a respectful and dignified way. Large hospitals and other health facilities should take a lesson from Cook Community Clinic!

Cook Community Clinic has been an answer to years’ worth of prayers. I never thought I would be able to live my life without feeling pain. Thank God for all the wonderful people who make this clinic possible.
