Robert B. Cocke III
My path to Full Spectrum is a rather circuitous one. I was raised in the Texas Panhandle and received my Bachelor’s degree in Emergency Systems Management from Texas Tech University. I worked as a ground EMS Paramedic and a flight paramedic, ending up in San Antonio in 1991 as one of the inaugural members of San Antonio Airlife, where I flew for over 17 years, completing over 2200 missions.
Not content with merely flying and caring for patients, I attended and graduated from the police academy in 1992 and received my commission as a police officer, serving with the Comal County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Covert Operations Response Team as a SWAT team member and tactical medic.
Prior to attending PA School, I was involved in regional preparedness efforts and disaster response, and was deployed to Galveston in the hours after Hurricane Ike.
I completed my Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies at The University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio and have worked in Urgent Care/Emergency Medicine since graduation.
I’m married, with three daughters and a son. We also provide living quarters for three dogs—a German Shepherd and two Dutch Shepherds. I’m an avid Texas Tech football and baseball fan and continue to stay active playing softball in Boerne.
