“My experience with the Cooper Wellness Center began following my visit with Dr. Cooper for an annual checkup. My physical condition was not good. I was extremely overweight, my blood pressure was high (150/110), I had shortness of breath, my knees hurt because of the excess weight and old surgeries, and I had no stamina at all. A short walk of 10 minutes was all I could muster before I had to rest. So, Dr. Cooper suggested that I talk to the folks at her wellness clinic. At first, I was skeptical and reluctant, but after I met with the members of the staff, I decided to join the wellness center. During the following 5 ½ months, the staff at the center helped, encouraged, and inspired me in my journey. What they helped me accomplish was nothing short of a miracle. At the end of the 5 ½ months I had lost 60 pounds, my blood pressure was perfectly normal (120/70), and I had no shortness of breath at all. I was walking for over an hour each day for at least 5 days per week, and on most weeks 6 days, for a total of about 4 miles. Best of all, I had no pain in my knees and legs during or after my walks. As I have said, the transformation was miraculous. I will be forever grateful to the group of professionals at the Cooper Wellness Center who helped and inspired me in my journey to a healthier life. I highly recommend the center to anyone who needs help reaching a healthier lifestyle. With one’s dedication and commitment, the wonderful staff at the Cooper Wellness Center is ready help anyone achieve their goal. ”
“My name is Jesse C. Villareal and I had total hip replacement of my left hip performed by Dr. Rick Bassett on August 29, 2014 because Osteoarthritis of the joint. After completing 3 weeks of inpatient therapy at Legend Transitional Care Center in McAllen following my surgery, I chose to complete the remainder of my required therapy on an outpatient basis rather than using home health. I chose to attend Cooper Wellness Center because I felt that Dr. Cooper's Lifestyle Medicine program would empower me to change my behaviour on how I select and consume food as well as learn simple health principles by changing my lifestyle to improve and maintain my overall health. The Wellness Programs taught by licensed professionals enabled me to lower my total cholesterol to 121 mg/DI, good cholesterol (HDL) to 70 mg/Dl and bad cholesterol (LDL) to 80 mg/DI. My blood pressure now averages 122/75 while my weight has decreased 10 pounds. The Healthy Cooking Classes have provided me with recipes and the healthy food that I should consume. This in turn also has had a positive effect on my cholesterol, blood pressure an weight. The Personalized Exercise Program contains a medical weight loss program, weekly consultation with Dr. Cooper or her Physician Assistant to assess my, progress and health, a customized exercise program, a coach is present en you exercise and you have access to the Fitness Room at any time. My Physical Therapy Technician, Elda, was well versed in the required protocols and created my Personalized Exercise Program which enabled my body to recover much quicker. I strongly recommend Cooper Wellness Center to any orthopedic surgery patients or anyone who wants to improve their overall health by changing their lifestyle. The staff is very considerate, friendly, professional and knowledgable and my recovery has exceeded any expectations that I had. I am having a total hip replacement of my right hip on 11/14/14. I look forward to the care that will be provided to me once again by Dr. Rick Basset, Legend Transitional Care Center and Cooper Wellness Center.”
