I am a native Washingtonian.  In fact, as a youngster, I received my medical care at the very same medical center that I currently work in. I have been a Kaiser Permanente member for as long as I can remember.

In general, I offer a full range of ob/gyn services, with a special interest in minimally invasive procedures, high risk pregnancies, adolescent medicine, and menopausal management.

My goal is to participate in the total health care and well being of my patients.  I have the privilege to be a part of a highly skilled and compassionate team of physicians.  Along with our office staff, we are committed to delivering an exceptional care experience to every patient.

Thank you for taking the time to view my home page.  It is truly an honor to have to opportunity to participate in your care.

What My Patients Say

I so love Dr. Cooper. He makes me feel comfortable and cares about his patients. He is one reason that I will never leave Kaiser Permanente. I have had so many friends and family switch to him as a new patient, and they all love him. - LG

The major criteria for one to feel comfortable with one's physician is a good communication protocol. This is an excellent attribute of Dr. Cooper, leading to the feeling of receiving quality care. He also exhibits a level of patience which allows for two-way communication for questions and concerns. - EJ

I appreciate the pleasant way that Dr. Cooper and his staff treated me today. I am looking forward to a long, healthy life with them. - DJ

Out of all the gyn doctors I have had, Dr. Cooper is the best. It's like talking to an old friend. He explains all procedures so you can understand. He does not rush you like it's just a paycheck. For him, he really cares. I wish all doctors could be like him. The only reason I'm still with Kaiser Permanente is because of him. - EJ

I became a Kaiser Permanente member in 2014 and chose Dr. Cooper as my gyn. The best decision I've made that year. He is very passionate, patient, thorough, pleasant and professional. I'm always cracking jokes with him. [His clinical assistant] Dianne is such a sweetheart. They are a great pair, a great healthcare team. As long as I'm a member, they will be my healthcare providers! Great work!! Stay strong, because I know I'm a mess. :-) Thank you for what you do! - PB

I've been a patient of Dr. Cooper's since 2000. He is a very caring doctor. If you have questions or concerns, he explains all the information with patience, care and in full detail. He is a really great doctor. - AH

Dr. Cooper is a very good doctor …. [he] is the best. He is patient, caring and very professional. - JH

Dr. Cooper is the best! He has been my ob/gyn since I became a Kaiser Permanente member and once I found out I was pregnant, he was simply amazing. You're not just another patient; he actually listens and he cares. He's also very funny and down-to-earth so it makes it so much easier to talk to him about anything you want to talk about. His assistant Ms. Dianne is such a sweetheart. If ever I was having a bad day or just simply didn't feel like being there .... her smile would always make my day. Keep up the awesome work you guys do!!! - DD

Dr. Cooper has an amazing bedside manner. I am new to Kaiser Permanente and had to have a procedure done quickly and was referred to him. I met him on the day of surgery and it was as if I had been seeing him for years. He made me feel comfortable and reduced my anxiety before I went into surgery. He was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure discussing the risks and percent chance for risk to occur. Very positive experience with him. I highly recommend him. Pleasant, amazing doctor! - TM
