From the time you schedule your first appointment, our compassionate and caring support staff will put you at ease by explaining the progression of care and services that we offer. We realize that pediatric eye issues can be worrisome. We will spend the necessary time to answer any questions you may have, handle insurance forms and explain our billing procedures, and offer an an overview of the diagnostic tests and referrals that may be required. If surgical intervention is necessary, not only are we affiliated with the finest hospitals in the area, we also work with an excellent group of anesthesiologists. Having practiced in the Bay Area for 25 years, we understand how to utilize our local resources including appropriate and timely referrals to other specialists, hospitals, and university centers.
We utilize cutting-edge technology. Our office is equipped with the finest diagnostic tools available. We make every attempt to banish "fear" from the vocabulary with child-friendly equipment and an upbeat, enthusiastic staff. From our gaily-decorated office to the finger puppets our doctors use, from the diagnostic "games" we play to our "wonderland" optical shop, we believe you will agree that a visit to Dr. Cooper's office is no ordinary experience.
As parents ourselves, we understand the importance of proper vision care for children. More importantly, we understand that seeing well is a lifetime goal, and we want to help you and your family see clearly long past childhood.
