Dr. Cooper on:


how women put their health at risk:

Women today are incredibly successful, adept at multitasking and willing to put their needs second to the demands they face at work and at home. In the midst of mounting family and professional commitments, taking care of yourself can be difficult. Donít disregard your own health. The better you feel, the more energy you will have to care for your families and loved ones.



the number one thing women need to incorporate into their routine:

Women of all ages should have a proper diet, an exercise plan and a healthy lifestyle. Each is equally important. If you struggle with your weight, lean on your primary care doctor as a coach. We can help counsel and encourage you.



the 20s and 30s:

During these years, your doctor will conduct routine screenings, checking your blood pressure, cholesterol, calcium and vitamin D levels. During their 20s, women are still building bones, so take calcium and vitamin D supplements. This will help you build strong bones.



what happens when you hit 40:

Breast cancer screening becomes a very important topic, especially if you have first-degree family relatives like a mother or sister who has been diagnosed. Open the conversation with your doctor about your screening options and risk factors.



what to do when approaching retirement age:

I often joke with my female patients that hitting 50 means they need a 50,000 mile checkup. We have to look at everything. By this age, many women are entering perimenopause, and our conversations will center around coping with the changes in your body.
