September 21, 2014

Dr. Cooper is the BEST, she is on top of all my medical needs and there are many after my motorcycle accident. I will miss having her as my primary care doctor

August 25, 2014

Good experience all around.

August 22, 2014

Dr, cooper is a very great physician and an asset to the Sugarhouse Clinic and to the University.

August 17, 2014

I would and have referred her to others. She is a GREAT asset to the Sugarhouse Clinic as well as to the University.

August 09, 2014

I would liked to have heard a bit about the down-side of "prednisone" - such as it can sometimes cause mood swings or depression. I wasn't prepared for "feeling so down".

July 14, 2014

Dr. Cooper was both caring and efficient.

July 14, 2014

Dr. Cooper displays a high degree of professionalism, compassion, integrity and clinical skill. She is among the few top physicians that I have seen, anywhere.

June 20, 2014

First visit. Mostly to get labs. Followup visit will tell more. Was a positive experience.

June 11, 2014

I felt I understood my diagnosis thoroughly and was given options for treatment to choose from. I have already recommended Dr. Cooper to others.

June 06, 2014

Dr. Cooper is amazing: she was fast but thorough and I knew that she wanted me to get better as soon as possible. She diagnosed my troubling symptoms and gave me solutions for resolving them. I felt that she really listened to my concerns, and was really engaged in my issues. I would recommend anyone to come and see her: the University should be very pleased to have her represent them.

June 05, 2014

Can't say enough about Dr. Cooper--she's the best!

June 05, 2014

I really liked Dr. Cooper, she was very knowledgeable, and very kind. Genuinely cares about her patients.

June 01, 2014

It was my first time seeing this provider. I had hoped to spend few more minutes asking a few questions.

May 22, 2014

I really appreciate Dr. Cooper's knowledge of supplements and other integrative medicine modalities. As someone who struggles with multiple chronic health conditions, it is very important to me to have a physician with such expertise, experience and patience. Thanks, Sugarhouse Clinic!

May 12, 2014

Dr. Cooper's recommendations for medications got typed into the visit record so that I was able to take a written copy home. That is very important to me at my age (72) because my short-term memory is not good.

May 03, 2014

I only met with my doctor for ten minutes out of my entire time there,she seems rushed and like my problems weren't an issue. She talked more with the PA then to me, did not discuss causes or possibilities. She asked me questions that the answers were already given or were in my chart. No at all explanations were given to my lab results and any explanation to why each was ordered.

April 24, 2014

Dr. Cooper was friendly, attentive, direct and helpful during my visit, and in a subsequent message exchange via MyChart.

April 18, 2014

Dr. Leslie Cooper is my primary care physician. She is the best in the business. She is always on top of my needs and has an actual empathy for me and my conditions. She is always forward thinking about my care and always weights in my concerns. My only issue is she is in high damand and her hours in the salt lake valley are booked well inadvance.

April 09, 2014

Dr. Cooper is excellent and well versed in patient care.

March 21, 2014

Dr. Cooper is filling in for Dr. Paisley. She is excellent...very thorough and responded to all of my questions.

March 20, 2014

First time I'd seen Dr. Cooper; she's another excellent doctor on your staff. Very efficient and checks a lot of clues to issue. Very caring about me as a patient. Very much appreciated her care.

February 10, 2014

I was very disappointed with this visit. Dr. Cooper was highly recommended to me by a coworker and I understand that she agreed to take me on even though her practice was no longer open for new patients (which was not mentioned anywhere on her profile online). However, I was never informed that she was running or asked to reschedule. She simply stated that because she was running late when she finally showed up that she would likely not get to all my issues this visit. This is disappointing as I made it a point to have a longer appointment reserved so that we could discuss everything and it was not my fault she was running so far behind. I was also very disappointed that her comment in regard to imaging for my pelvis/back problem was that "you are too young for any problems that would show on imaging". She hadn't even looked at my back yet. Thankfully she referred me to specialists weith whom I hopefully will receive better treatment and insight. I seriously doubt I will ever return or refer any one in the future.

January 17, 2014

Dr. Cooper is most courteous and professional, and takes time to hear and then explain. Thanks!

January 16, 2014

Simply the most efficient and thorough experience I have had at a Doc's office. Even got a flu shot for the 1st time...simply because the PA asked and made it easy for me.

January 11, 2014

Dr. Leslie Cooper is the best! Keep her!

January 10, 2014

Dr. Leslie Cooper is extraordinary in the quality of care she gives.

January 02, 2014

Provider was dismissive of previously recorded medical condition, I felt patronized; I will be seeing a different doctor in the future.

December 28, 2013

I can't think of any way the care provider could improve. She's superb.

December 20, 2013

Great!!

December 20, 2013

Very good experience overall, would definitely recommend to others

December 13, 2013

Again, an excellent experience

December 11, 2013

Dr. Cooper is always thoughtful and thorough - I feel like she takes the time to listen to me. I have recommended her to friends - she's great!

December 11, 2013

I liked when I first called in to make a appointment the persons asked me a series of question and was very nice, I even had to praise her on her courtesy and professional manner.

November 14, 2013

Dr. Odell is primary physician but have total confidence if he is unavailable to return to Dr. Cooper.

October 10, 2013

The doc was a little less personal than the nurse. She said what was needed though. I had hoped for a more individual assessment and more suggestions on what I should do in the future to prevent things.

October 07, 2013

Dr. Cooper is an excellant physician no nonsense but always there for me as a patient and her new trainee was very capable and i felt very comfortable with him handling my procedure

September 30, 2013

I can't say enough about Dr. Cooper--she's the best!

August 30, 2013

This was my third visit to Dr. Cooper for the same problem with my foot. She didn't remember me at all, she didn't review my chart and she showed ZERO interest in my well-being or problem.

August 16, 2013

All went well. Just need results and diagnosis with additional testing.

August 06, 2013

Dr. Cooper was very knowledgeable about my sprain and gave me instructions along with exercises to get my ankle back to 100%. I was very comfortable with her and the staff and was happy with my care.

August 06, 2013

I came to Dr. Cooper as a new patient because my doctor switched to urgent care. I am very pleased with Dr. Cooper and would recommend her without reservation to my friends.

July 21, 2013

OK

July 17, 2013

I like seeing Dr Cooper. She is straight forward, knowledgeable and includes me in decisions about my health. She treats me as the intelligent woman I am.

June 24, 2013

I am very impressed with Dr. Cooper. She was seeing me for a sports injury and I felt like she knew what I was talking about when I explained my discomfort. For reasons that weren't her fault, her time with me was cut short by another patient. I understood and realized she couldn't do anything about this.

June 21, 2013

Dr Cooper is good. She checked me over, discussed my symptoms and offered possible courses of action. I like that I am treated as an intelligent patient, who understands what is going on in my body.

June 11, 2013

Dr. Cooper is wonderful. I don't know what I'd do without her!

June 07, 2013

there still seems to be some confusion about what i was being treated for. my first directive was to go to the ER, that was fine. then i was suppose to have a MRI of my arm; i thought. perhaps there is no such thing. the hospital thought they were treating my neck. dr. cooper had to get them figured out

May 18, 2013

I was recommended to this facility by my sister and will be recommending it to all my family and friends!

May 14, 2013

The level of care and consideration given by Dr. Cooper during my visit could not have been better. Certainly one of the best care provider experiences I've ever had the pleasure of receiving.

May 08, 2013

Dr. Cooper is an exceptional Doctor.

April 17, 2013

absolutely wonderful experience

March 25, 2013

Dr. Cooper is a superb doctor, both in knowledge and in how she communicates with me.

March 11, 2013

dr. cooper is one of the best i have encountered always feel like she really cares and her skills are excellant

March 08, 2013

Dr. Cooper is also very excellent at using "my chart" to answer any of my questions!

March 06, 2013

Best experience each time it gets better.

March 01, 2013

Would like doctor to explain on her arrival that she had another patient waiting & therefore could not spend as much time as I might want & that we would have to complete visit quickly, rather than glance at her watch, which I interpreted as disinterest.

February 23, 2013

great doctor and actually remembers you from previous visits

February 20, 2013

Dr. Cooper is an amazing physician. I would recommend her to anyone.

February 18, 2013

DR Cooper is very nice and she cares about you as a person not just a patient she is not my regular DR though i feel comfortabe when i see her i would highly recommend her to family and friends

January 18, 2013

Dr. Leslie Cooper is my favorite doctor ever! She excells at all of the above. On this particular visit, I had numerous questions and she very patiently and clearly addressed each of them, never making me feel rushed. I typically try not to take excess appointment time because I know there are others scheduled after me, but this visit it couldn't be helped, and with Dr. Cooper's carefull attention, I left feeling well informed and clear about how we are proceeding.

January 02, 2013

Ok

December 21, 2012

Leslie is great - got to the heart of the issue and was able to give me the relief I needed.

December 10, 2012

Dr. Cooper is hard to get in to see. She is not around a lot.

December 10, 2012

She took time to listen and explain things to me.

November 24, 2012

Dr. Cooper enter the room and stated she had been reviewing my records. That gave me confidence that I had her undivided attention. She provided me a wonderful hand out that explained my condition and exercises I should do to improve it.

November 23, 2012

This was both a "new patient" appointment and a physical. I was surprised that there was very little time allotted to the appointment, in fact I had to point out the fact that perhaps they should ask me questions re: my medical history. We were able to focus on a particular issue in depth, and I felt well cared for in that respect. But for a first mtg. felt rushed, that the doctor was scheduled more tightly than she would have preferred, and therefore I didn't have enough time to get to know the doctor, and she had no time to get a broader more wholistic picture of me as a new patient. I even had to come back after leaving the building once I realized we had not booked my requested follow-up appointment. Somehow that got lost in the shuffle.

October 30, 2012

Great physician!

October 22, 2012

I think the medication she gave me was incorrect. The muscle relaxers did nothing, the steroids did nothing, and the only thing I really needed at this point was pain relief, but she didn't prescribe anything like that, however, in fairness, I was concerned about medication, as I don't like taking it, but steroids and muscle relaxers did zero!

September 13, 2012

I would recommend her although it is hard to see her.

August 20, 2012

Great experience !!!

August 13, 2012

best doc. i have had in a long while

June 18, 2012

Dr Cooper is as good as it gets she understands my concerns and keeps me on feet she knows i am raising grand kids and don't have the time for knee replacement i am the only driver in my house my wife is not well and i have to stay standing and Dr Cooper keeps me upright and mobile.

April 10, 2012

She reviewed my chart carefully, turns out we're both breast cancer survivors and she took extra care and interest and that influenced in a good way how she addressed my concerns with the terrible cold I was experiencing. I felt well cared for and attended to.

April 03, 2012

Wasn't told when doctor left room if she would be back and was surprised when she came back. I believe the MA provided a different test request to U of U cardiology clinic than what Dr. Cooper had told me. This resulted in delays and necessity for Cardiology to contact Dr. Cooper for clarification.

March 29, 2012

Dr. Cooper is the best doctor who has ever attended to me.

March 27, 2012

Dr. Cooper is professional and thorough.

March 16, 2012

no bad experience

March 15, 2012

the best is the only way to describe the expertise and skill of Dr. cooper

March 13, 2012

She thoroughly reassured me regarding my concerns and worked with me to find an affordable, effective course of treatment. She instilled a lot of confidence and made sure follow-up care was in place before she left the exam room.

March 13, 2012

Impressed overall

March 06, 2012

Dr. Cooper has always been responsive, courteous, personable.

March 06, 2012

I have already recommended Dr. Cooper to someone else

March 03, 2012

I'm very impressed with Dr. Cooper!

February 28, 2012

Dr. Cooper is excellent!

February 14, 2012

She was great! Ther erntire staff of the Clinic is top-notch.

February 10, 2012

Dr. Cooper was excellent. I thought she was very capable, very clear, and efficient.

January 24, 2012

very competent and informative, and put me at ease about my injury. Thank you!!!

January 24, 2012

I wasn't very happy. My doctor spent 10 minutes with me. I am over 40, and she didn't do a prostate exam or check my reproductive organs for abnormalities.

January 14, 2012

I haven't had a bad experience with any physician at Sugar House.

January 10, 2012

All staff at this clinic are extremely professional and efficient.
