Amazing service from staff and doctor. Great listening skills! Articulate description of condition and suggested surgical procedure. Fully engaged in very personalized care. And do not let the quaint office fool you. This operation is light years ahead of the new, too large for life, newbee organizations with too many incompetent partners! Big money, staff, and heads are nother what is needed when your body needs help. See Dr.Cooper & Co.for the best vascular care ever!
in Richmond, RI |
High quality imaging equipment impressed me most. I work in health care. I know that good outcomes start with an accurate diagnosis.Two years ago I saw a different surgeon in Westerly. Dr. Cooper's equipment was obviously superior. I saw and understood everything Dr. Cooper explained. He asked a lot of questions which showed he considered many aspects of my heath which could have an impact on my vascular system. Also, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The office is clean and up to date
in Hope Valley, R.I |
Dr Cooper is a wonder surgeon who is extremely meticious in the way he approaches each of his procedures with each individual patient in mind. When you are with him, you never feel rushed in any way and feel as though your well being is of the upmost importance to him. He is what I would consider an old school type of Doctor who does not run his practice like a mill and you are never made to feel like just a number. I would highly recommend this caring, kind and efficient man.
