Dr. Cooper is professional, compassionate, kind and ethical. Recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I met with him prior to my mastectomy to discuss options for reconstruction. He gained my trust right away with his honesty and patient-centered approach and was a steadying force during a tumultuous time. He sought and explained solutions that were in my best interest--physical health as well as emotional considerations--and has conveyed that he cares about his patients through his actions and responsiveness. I felt I had an ally in Dr. Cooper.
