    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.

Insensitive and not that competent

Dr. Cooper literally made me cry. I still remember and I never went back. His follow up after my cancer treatment was inadequate, and completely missed signs of depression. If he had recommended a mental health specialist to follow up with me, so many things would have turned out different. Instead he said - your thyroid levels are fine. There is nothing wrong with you, despite the fact that I clearly did not feel fine.

Rude, dismissive and would advise you to stay away unless you are a masochist.

I have finally found a site with reviews that reflect the experience I had with this so-called doctor. Why did I go back for more than one visit? I unfortunately gave him the benefit of the doubt, being a Johns Hopkins doctor which brings with it...I was a masochist, but no more... He may have great credentials and be a brilliant doctor, but what use is this if he berates, dismisses, and is not a nice person. It doesn't take much effort.

The Best of the Best but not with dr. Cooper

I do not care to rate dr. Cooper he was so rude and unprofessional. I myself as a registered nurse of 35 years working with doctors and practitioners I've never been made to feel so worthless. Dr. Cooper showed his behavior in front of the doctor working with him. he would not even listen to the other doctors fingings of her exam. Hopkins takes pride in being the best of the best. An Institution where we practice patient friendly. why is he still on staff. Read his reviews. I was distastefully dismissed and told to go back to my other doctor. Sadly enough I had to hit 1 star in order for this to be submitted

Mr

Was expecting the patient/doctor experience to match the caliber of his credentials. Unfortunately, bad experience. This was first (and last) visit. No visible attempt on his part to connect with me, or for that matter to even really respect my comments and/or answers to his questions. Just short sarcastic feedback. He may know the" science" of medicine, but doesn't display the "caring / intangible variable" aspect of medicine. Bottom Line: Not the doctor for my care.

Do not waste your time with Dr. Cooper

I would not recommend Dr. David Cooper as an Endo. He showed little bedside manner and sensitivity to me. First off, he didn't contact me regarding my blood work, I was told it "fell through the cracks." The blood work showed that my medication needed to be changed. Luckily, I called him 6 week after the labs to get the proper adjustment. Secondly, I also send Dr. Cooper the message below: Dr. Cooper, I am glad to hear that my TSH is at a desirable level. Unfortunately, my symptoms have not changed. I'm feeling sluggish and fatigued every day. Weight gain, body aches and sensitivity to cold show no improvement. Is there anything I can do to combat these Hashimoto's symptoms? Any chance being on the RX longer may improve how I feel? His response was "Unfortunately, I don't have any other ideas. Your symptoms are not due to Hashimoto's thyroiditis! If you don't think that you feel any differently on the medication, you might as well just stop it." Just rude. I had to do some self education on my own. If Dr. Cooper was well-versed in Hashimoto's at all, he should've at least recommended a change in diet as removing gluten has shown great relief in Hashi's symptoms.
