Doug Cooper, ATC

Certified Athletic Trainer

Treatment Philosophy

“I enjoy making people laugh and I’ve found humor creates a relaxed and positive environment for patients dealing with orthopaedic injuries. Through my experiences in both collegiate and high school athletics, I’ve found that developing trust and comfort with my patients leads to a faster and more enjoyable healing process. I personally invest in my patients and I am committed to their success on and off the field.”
