Dr. John F Cooper has the following 2 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.
- Infectious Disease
An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.
- HIV Infections
- AIDS/HIV (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome)
- Hepatitis C

Dr. Cooper wss my infectious disease "specialist", but he failed to make a critical diagnosis of syphilis which progressed to its late stages before being treated. This resulted in permanent brain damage and a stroke which caused permanent neurological damageI almost died. I confided in him that I thought I had syphilis but rather than investigate further, he merely dismissed me and convinced me that he knew what he was doing. I knew that syphilis was difficult to diagnose in an already immuno-supressed patient, but Dr. Cooper wasn't interested in learning something from his patient. If I had it to do over, I might have found a different doctor, but I cannot stress enough that he talked me into believing he knew what he was doing. I always wondered why the doctor flew the "coop", why he retired from private practice in Indianapolis all those years ago. I would recommend him to anyone I cared about.
