Does not answer the phone, respond to messages, make promised testing appointments, or care how much pain a person is in or for how long. Does not listen to or even do any kind of physical movement capability testing in a patient.

The doctor did not listen to my pain in my ribs, underarm, lay, spine, shoulder blade, collar bone, neck, and head. With pins and needs in the arm, neck, chest, head, and even the tongue & face at times. Said my pec muscle which didn’t hurt was the issue and prescribed a muscle relaxer. Said they would get an MRI scheduled but 2 weeks later they didn’t, won’t return calls at all or answer the phone 75% of the time, lied the one time someone answered and said they were waiting for prior auth. The insurance said there was no prior auth pending or contact from the office. They do not help. They only want people who will repeatedly return for shots to make money, not to solve a real issue.

I don't even know how I would begin to describe how amazing Dr Cooper is. He has been my doctor for many years now and I honestly don't know what I would do without him. He is without a doubt the absolute best and on the reviews you see here are true he has the best staff, the best bedside manner, and just overall a great personality. I love him to pieces

After months of being seen by multiple specialists & having many tests, xrays, etc. Dr. Cooper diagnosed my problem at my first visit! He is compassionate and professional. He has never been rushed at any of my visits & will spend all the time needed with you to answer all your questions. I would recommend him to anyone. He has helped me immensely!

Dr. Cooper and team spent 2 hours with me and treated me like a real patient, not just a number...like most doctors I've seen. His team was thorough, compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, and so easy to talk to. They were all incredibly kind and dedicated to ensuring I would see improvements over time as I manage my symptoms. I count them as a blessing and I would recommend them to anyone. So thankful for these folks!

I've heard great feedback on Dr Cooper. He was referred to me by Dr Taha and our Pharmacist as an excellent choice. I would love to bring my son to see him for frequent migraines and abdominal migraines that are interfering with his university classes and work but I see that Humana/ Choice Care is not listed as one of your approved insurances. Any chance this will be added in the near future? Warmly, K B

Dr. Cooper is such an caring and awesome provider. You are not a number with him you're treated like person. Great bedside manners. Also, both NP's in the office are just as awsome. I would recommend his office to anyone?

Don't bother going to this Dr. My wife went to this practice after suffering with chronic migraines for months. After waiting for quite some time, my wife was told that he would not see her because she didn't meet the qualifications and that he couldn't help her. She ask the nurse what the qualifications were and she say she didn't know and hung up the phone. A complete waste of my wife's time.
