Dr. James Cooper is a highly recommended surgeon!
After reading extraordinary reviews of Dr. James Cooper, I suddenly came to the conclusion I wanted him to perform my inguinal hernia surgery. Dr. Cooper is very kind and professional and made certain all my questions and concerns were addressed thoroughly. It was easy to set up an appointment for my initial office visit and post-op office visit. Dr. Cooper outlined every aspect of the surgical procedure and provided me with very detailed post-op instructions. I always felt comfortable interacting with Dr. Cooper, his surgical assistant, the anesthesiologist and his office staff at Dignity Health. It is with great pleasure to highly recommend Dr. James Cooper to anyone seeking a qualified surgeon.

Dr. Cooper is the real deal. He explained my condition thoroughly and in layman's terms and with examples that made sense. Before surgery, he ensured I understood what was going on, and constantly asked if I had any questions. He introduced his team and explained what their roles would be. In the follow up, he was attentive and did not end the appointment until he was satisfied I had no more questions. Great bedside manner and follow up, and he and his team do unbelievable work on the operating table. Also, as an athlete himself, Dr. Cooper was sympathetic to my desire to get back to my active lifestyle as quickly as possible, and even had great recommendations for races to try. Great doctor and a great guy.

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!

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.

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.
