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."

Thank you so much Dr cooper for your compassion and caring. You're great surgery.
Hellertown, PA |
I would not recommend him to anyone. He does not take the time to listen. He is great with injections but that is all.
Upper Black Eddy, PA |
I can heartily recommend Dr. Cooper. He is very efficient and not chatty, but he is amazing at what he does. When he gives cortisone injections it is in the precise spot, with no pain, no bleeding, or pain afterwards.
in Telford, PA |
A totally disappointing experience. My wife and I were so upset after the visit that we wished we had never stepped into his office. He was so impersonal, unfriendly and as if he was working on a timer. My wife had 2 broken ribs and some damage to her right shoulder from a fall on a stairway. He just X-rayed the shoulder. He hardly looked at the previous X-rays we brought to him that were taken on day one and five of the accident. We would have had more compassion from a butcher's visit.
Scranton, PA |
I went to see Dr. Cooper today for a second opinion of my knee surgery performed by another Dr. in January My knee pain is still very bad and he did not even have the decency to look at my past records,barely looked at the MRI I walked out with no answers I would never refer this man to anyone

Dr, Cooper is very calm and empathetic, which make a person like me who has doctor phobia feel alittle at ease. He has taken very good care of me over the year with a shattered femur, fractured pelvic bone and other aches and pains. The wait is forever but once your in it goes quick. He is worth the wait, especially if you are deathly afraid of all doctors.
in Bethlehem, PA |
Dr. Cooper is in my opinion the greatest Orhto doctor I have had the pleasure to have meet and be cared by. Injections are a breeze with him. He has very gentle hands when administering the shots. Everything about his office handles everything with care. What a true pleasure.
in East stroudsbug, PA |
Dr. Cooper handled all aspects of my knee issue with the highest level of respect and integrity.
in Bethlehem, PA |
Dr. Cooper was masterful in his management of my meniscal tear. I was very happy with the outcome. Top notch service.
Waited in room to see him for awhile. Finally came in & seemed rushed & didn't take the time/questions I thought to evaluate my injury.
in Allentown, PA |
Dr. Cooper gives you 5 minutes after waiting an hour after your appointment time to see him. He's good at giving shots of cortisone into your knee or hip but that's about it. He didn't listen to me and misdiagnosed my hip condition telling me I had a hernia because I had groin pain. I had to plead with him to authorize an MRI of my hip and then I found another doctor to go to when I found out the he did not have an X-Ray taken of my hip when he authorized an X-ray of my right knee.
