Care Philosophy

As a Family Physician, I believe in preventive care, effective management of chronic diseases, rapid treatment of acute conditions, and an emphasis on the whole person ("total care"). As I tell my patients, when you come into this practice, we care for you mind, body, and spirit. Very holistic, patient-centered approach to medicine and health care. I emphasize excellent service to my patients. And because I am a D.O., I can also offer my patients Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) as well.Read more

Dr. Cooper says...

I am a Board Certified Family Physician who has substantial experience both in Urgent Care and Family Medicine. I did other things in my life prior to becoming a physician. I was a professional medical writer/reporter and editor, and professional photographer. I also worked in the advertising and public relations agency business for many years. My outside interests include music, songwriting, and photography. I have been called "exceptionally creative" by my colleagues and friends. I try to bring my creativity to medicine as well, realizing that each patient is a totally unique individual, and I always try to address the mind, body and spirit of each and every patient. I am a physician who truly listens to his patients. I also place a very high emphasis on patient education, and I will go out of my way to make sure my patients have the latest, scientific, evidence-based information on their conditions available to them.

Dr. Cooper says...

Family Medicine, full scope of practice, including basic gynecology (e.g., bacterial vaginitis, yeast infections, STD checks, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, pelvic inflammatory disease, etc.), but not Obstetrics.

Urgent Care, full scope of practice.

My Board Certification is in Family Practice/OMT (Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine)

Dr. Cooper says...

As a Board Certified Family Physician, I am trained to perform many procedures in the clinical environment. 

These procedures are within my scope of practice, so I feel comfortable doing them.

If you have questions about particular procedures or examinations I perform, please feel free to contact me through the Urgent Care where I work at 623-334-2818.

I always want the best care for patients. If there is something you need that I cannot do for you, I will always try to give you the names and phone numbers of other Doctors who can be of service to you.

Thank you!
