I had a great experience. I love my Doctor.
Sep 12, 2023
We were seen earlier than our actual appointment and Dr Kulkarni spent a long time with us being very thorough and making every effort to understand the challenges of my husband's medical conditions. We felt comfortable asking questions and were not made to feel rushed at any time.

Most impressed with Cooper as an organization as this was the second time meeting with a specialist in the last 30 days. In both cases my expectations were far exceeded and felt I was meeting with some of the Best of the Best I have ever met. I consider it a privilege to have access to Cooper care. Thank you for hiring such excellent talent.
