Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cooper "I prefer to keep things simple and easy, treating patients as I would like to be treated. I listen to what the patient is telling me. I try to explain the diagnosis and treatment options as clearly and succinct as possible so my patients can make informed decisions about their care. I stick with what works the best for me and my patients in the office and in surgery, always wanting the best outcome possible."
