Dr Cooper is a wonderful primary care physician and I trust her completely but this last visit did not end well .She left the room while an EKG she had just ordered was being done, stating she would return later to discuss the results. However, the EKG technician returned and told me Dr. Cooper was with another patient, handed me the report, and stated the Dr Cooper said that I could leave . The tech did not come into the room, merely handed me the report, and left. So I Quickly dressed and left, not looking at the ekg report until I got home, The words on the sheet stated that this was an abnormal EKG that showed an inferior infarct! I have scheduled an appointment with Dr.Veckstein on chagrin blvd. Dr Cooper has always been wonderful with me, and I will certainly always trust her ! I believe this incident occurred due to her very busy schedule and some type of miscommunication with staff.
