    Had emergency hernia surgery. Was released about 4 hrs. after surgery. he used modern methods to repair hernia. At that time I was in therapy for a total knee replacement. Never had any pain during or after therapy including my required 30 minute walks. Dr Cooper worked with me to allow maximum use of my therapy during the time it took for the surgery to heal. Compared to a hernia I had taken care of a number of years ago this was a "walk in the park".

    Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. This entire experience (from initial consultation/through the surgical procedure/including follow-up) was totally professional and showed an understanding of patient stress. Dr.'s Professional and Office Staff were thorough, polite and courteous, and everyone exhibited a wonderful bedside humor, which was relaxing in a difficult situation. Dr. gave me the impression all my questions were important and legitimate, and he answered all of them professionally.

    Everything about the entire experience was positive. He's very personable and I felt comfortable with him from the minute that I met him. He's a nice guy, very easy to talk to, and explains things in terms that normal people can understand. The office staff was very friendly and helpful.

    I loved Dr. Cooper and plan to use him again if I need a General Surgeon. He explained the surgery clearly to me and gave me reasonable expectations for recovery. Staff was great as well.

    Dr. Cooper is an excellent surgeon and communicates beautifully. He explains both upcoming surgery and surgical results clearly and in a relaxed manner that inspires confidence. Surgery isn't supposed to be enjoyable, but Dr. Cooper and his staff have been so good that I am wondering what I might have removed next!

    Dr. Cooper exudes confidence. From the minute I met him I was comfortable that I was in good hands. That proved to be the case. The problems I had were corrected, and my recovery was free of pain or discomfort. Within days I was back to my normal routine as though the surgery had never happened
