Dr. Cooper says

We try our best to provide compassionate and friendly customer servcie especially scheduling appointments. However, at times we can get overworked and our telephone response may seem to be brusque.That has happened more than we like and we apologize profusely to anyone who feels that we have been rude to. We are trying our best to change that when it happens. Thank you.

I am very pleased with Dr. Cooper. I can now walk again without intense pain. He explains everything. He really gets to know his patients needs and concerns. Answers any and all questions. He is also concerned about the health of the entire person.

Dr. Cooper's Care Philosophy

The knee is a special joint requring specialized care. Older patients with arthritis benefit from visosupplementation injected under ultrasound guidance into the knee joint. In most cases this eliminates the need for surgery and knee replacememnts.Also, arthroscopic surgery can be done to clean out a knee, repair torn cartilege, and prevent further damage. We have a very efficient office thanks to my excellent staff. Most patients never wait more than 10 mnutes to be seen. Thank you.
