Hasseltine Cooper, DO
Job TitleDoctor of osteopathic medicine
For me, becoming a doctor began from the perspective of being a patient. When a person has an ailment of any kind, they are potentially at their most vulnerable, confused, and scared. To be able to care for people in that state and the trust they place in you is truly an honor and one that I take very seriously.
Kaiser Permanente’s approach to patient-centered care, as well as its focus on preventive medicine is a philosophy I value at my core and completely support. I always try to do as much as I can for patients, loved ones and myself to both maintain good health as well as help to heal when necessary.
Dermatology appeals to me because I have the ability and tools to completely change a patient’s life for the better when they are faced with a debilitating skin condition. I specialize in non-melanoma skin cancer, psoriasis, procedural dermatology, general medical dermatology.
My philosophy of care is to get to know my patients as best I can, and to partner with them to optimize their health or effectively treat any chronic skin issues they may have.
