  • Dr. Dona E. Cooper-Dockery
    Dona Cooper-Dockery, M.D., is a physician, #1 bestselling author, and speaker who has dedicated over 25 years to positively changing healthcare outcomes both nationally and internationally. She holds active memberships in the American Academy of Lifestyle Medicine and the American Medical Association. She is the founder and director of Cooper Internal Medicine and the Cooper Wellness and Disease Prevention Center, where patients are not only diagnosed and treated using the traditional healthcare approaches, but she emphasizes up-rooting the causes of chronic diseases through lifestyle modifications. Some patients have even gotten off medication entirely, reversed diabetes, improved blood pressure, lost weight, reduced cholesterol, or decrease the risk for coronary artery disease and early death. Dr. Dona Cooper-Dockery is also actively engaged in various communities conducting healthy lifestyle seminars and free medical care in the USA, Africa, Haiti, Jamaica, the Philippines, and Europe.
  • Lucia Saldana
    Lucia Saldana has been working with Cooper Internal Medicine for the last six years. There, she forms personal relationships with her patients, many of which she considers friends. Saldana considers going above and beyond as part of the job description. She believes that education about the disease process is the first step on the healthy path. Saldana knows first-hand the patience required to make sure patients are well-informed of their condition – patience born of a deep passion to help and to heal.By taking the time to make sure her patients understand their ailments, Saldana hopes to correct some misconceptions people may Have. She claims some people take their condition for granted: they will say “‘I have diabetes.. give me a pill.’ The treatment for diabetes is not a pill. The first treatment should come from the patient.”
