Dr. Barbara Cooper has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- Acute Myeloid Leukemia
- Adult T-Cell Leukemia-Lymphoma
- Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
- Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Hepatitis C

Dr. Cooper is the only doctor at the practice whom I liked but she left about a year ago and I do not know why. She seemed really caring and didn't make me feel rushed like so many doctors do. She treated me like a whole person, not just for hematology issues. I only wish that she had said good bye or told me that I needed to find a new doctor instead of leaving me hanging wondering what happened to her. I hope all is well with her. I have not found a new hematologist whom I like or trust yet.
When Dr. Cooper became my oncologist, she took excellent care of me and kept me informed of my health care and did testing when necessary. Unfortunately, Dr. Cooper's MA left me waiting in the Chemo room, it is like she forgot about me and my appointment. This issue was discussed with Dr. Cooper and resolved. I meet with another Dr. at AZ Oncology and was not pleased with him. He did not have the care or concern as Dr. Cooper did for her patients. I'm sorry that she is no longer with AZ Oncology.
