Dr. Cooper's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cooper "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cooper "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."
