Waited almost 2 hours for my appt. It was supposed to be at 4:15 and I wasn't seen until 6pm! She then did spend a lot of time with me, but if this happens again, I won't be able to see her again.

Agree with other comments: long wait; overcharging for her time and decision making level; unhelpful. Charged almost $600 for the initial consultation on my mid-night insomnia. Tried to deny prescription recommended in my condition without repeating visit. Would not recommend to others.

Ridiculously late for appointments--over 1 hour the fist time, and over 50 minutes the second time, by which I had to get back to work, so I never saw her. Additionally, staff is totally unresponsive, on multiple occasions failing to provide promised follow-up. I can't speak to Dr. Cooper's medical expertise, only that she and her staff have no concept of caring service. I will not be going back.

I had a really good appointment with this doctor and am a bit puzzled by the modest review scores. She spent about 45 minutes with me, asked lots of questions, listened to the answers, and seemed very knowledgeable. More like this one please!

I know she had a busy day and was probably stressed (and I arrived early and patiently waited for over an hour to see her), but throughout the appointment, I did not feel like she cared for me as a person or had empathy for any of my symptoms. She cracked jokes during our conversations that made light of what I was experiencing. I am not one to judge her medical expertise, I just know that she did not treat me with respect, genuine care, or good bedside manner.
