Meet Dr. Mark E. Cooper

A surgical consultation often creates anxiety for any patient and their family. Realizing this is an emotional time, it is my goal to be part of your “wellness team.” I strive to offer each patient a unique team-centered approach rather than simply a surgeon and a procedure. My staff and I focus on the whole patient. We pride ourselves in taking the time necessary to provide individualized attention while serving as your guide and educator throughout the surgical process. Our focus for every patient is comprehensive participation leading to an individualized treatment plan. By personally relating to each patient, their concerns, fears and surgical options – coupled with a multidisciplinary team of radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and plastic surgeons – I believe we distinguish ourselves from the traditional surgery practice.
