Thank you Dr.Cooper for the great service that you performed, very professional and caring. Also very personal, explained to me my condition and what needs to be done. Then he did the surgery, and now I feel great. Thank you one more time, and I will strongly recommend your service.

Dr. Cooper confirmed what I suspected and arranged for the appropriate surgery procedure. I appreciate that he listened to my concerns. He spent times explaining the procedure and he consistently asked “Do you have any questions?” Before the surgery he came to visit, introduced his team, advised of what I should/should not experience and assured me that everything would would go well. The personal interest was important to me as this was the very first surgery in my long life.

Dr Cooper performed an umbilical hernia surgery on me last month. Everything went very well, he explained the process prior and it all went as planned. 6 weeks later, I'm back at the gym and feeling great!

He removed my gallbladder via laproscope. I was very pleased with the results. I had no pain postoperatively and very little discomfort. He is very professional yet is very personable. I would recommend him as a surgeon.

Dr. Cooper is the doctor who remembers you when he sees you again. I didn't feel like just another number or just another surgery. I'm an amateur athlete, and learning that Dr. cooper is the Medical Director for Arizona Ironman Triathlon was reassuring. Dr. Cooper took great interest in my lifestyle, my training, my race schedule, and how they my be affected by my surgery. He did his best to ensure that my recovery was swift and that I could return to training quickly. It has been a month since the procedure and I can hardly see a scar. Upon my follow-up visit he inspected my incision and took great pride in its placement and how well it has healed, like a true craftsman at his trade. If ever I need surgery again, I hope Dr. Cooper will be available.

I had my gallbladder removed and Dr. Cooper made the entire process a breeze. Any questions I had, he answered thoroughly with reassurance. My recovery was extremely fast and I know it’s due to the efficiency and care that Dr. Cooper gave me. Fantastic bedside manner and very caring about my well-being. Can’t recommend him enough.

Dr. Cooper was very thorough and professional with regard to my recent cholecystectomy. My surgery and recovery went well. When I had my post-op visit he was again very thorough and professional. He made sure he answered all my questions and showed genuine concern over my well-being. His office and exam rooms were very and welcoming with friendly support staff.

I was admitted tp Dignity Health AZ general hospital for and emergency Hernia and bowel obstruction. Dr. Cooper was called in for an emergency surgery. I met him in the OR and my first impression was good. He seemed very caring and addressed my concerns. He came in after surgery and again was very nice. I was lucky to have had him as my surgeon. I had a Post Op visit 2 weeks later and again I felt very comfortable. I addressed my concern regarding the other hernia and he examined me and told me not to worry only if I have symptoms. Also, told me to call if I had any further questions.

Dr. Cooper was not only one of the nicest doctors that I've ever worked with, but he also took me on the very last minute as a patient because I was experiencing extremely painful gallbladder attacks. After a visit to the emergency room at Dignity Health, Dr. Cooper was rung to ask if he'd operate that afternoon to remove my gallbladder and sure enough, I was taken care of. Dr. Cooper is a fantastic surgeon and overall, just a really kind person. I'm incredibly thankful for him and for his recognition of the pain that I was in, taking me in as a patient because as he told me at my follow up appointment, he just likes to help people. A class act! You're appreciated, Dr. Cooper!
