Kim L. Cooper, MD

(46) Pediatric Ophthalmology
"I am a surgeon myself and when it came time to have the best examine our child - it's was KC or no one else.  Great care can be expensive and it takes time to get the right tests done. Dr. Cooper's costs were appropriate (less than dinner for 4 in San Carlos) and the entire staff used modern equipment to get the right diagnosis. We pay cash for our care as our daughter is foster/adopt. Her office was very well staffed and my daughter loves this place - people, toys, clean and smart / caring !!   We will 'see' them soon and are very pleased. They were on-time and got us on the schedule ASAP ..."

"Dr Kim Cooper is excellent and went out of her way to fit me with a pair of bifocals for driving my Tesla Model 3.  I explained to her that the Model 3 has one monitor screen located in the center console area.  To read anything on the right side I had to lean over and tilt my head.  The navigation instruction and warnings were blurs.  When Dr Kim Cooper was informed I had driven the Tesla to the appointment, she said lets do this right.  She  grabbed her "kit" and we went out to the parking area to the car.  She sat with me in the car asking "which is better A or B" until she found the rig..."

"I saw Dr Deanna Nyugen for an eye exam and she was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and sweet and very thorough. She adjusted my prescription and helped me pick out a nice pair of glasses, I can finally see again! I would definitely recommend her!"
More
"Dr. Cooper is THE best doctor I've met! she helped enormously with our daughter's eye problem. She's the only ophthalmologist who figured out my daughter is having a hemangioma rather than a blocked tear duct. She's super sympathetic, professional and with impeccable bedside manner. I've heard great things about her from other doctors before meeting her, and I just can't say good enough things too after that."
More
"I went there for an eye appointment. Unaware that I had a contact lens examination, I didn't bring/wear my contact lenses. When we got there the person was extremely rude and probably the most impatient person I have ever met. Overall not a very good experience. Assistants were great but Dr. Apte was outstanding and kind."
More
"Kim Cooper is the absolute BEST!   She was the saving grace with our son.   There is simply no other professional working with kids.   The highest of recommendation."
More
"Can't speak highly enough of Dr. Kim Cooper!  If you are in need of a pediatric ophthalmologist in the the Bay area you should definitely contact her.  Our son was diagnosed with strabismus (crossed eyes) by our optometrist.  After months of unsuccessful vision therapy we were referred to Dr. Cooper for eye surgery.  Kim's bedside manner with children is a thing to behold.  She won my 9 year old son over in about 5 seconds.  It is obvious that she really has love for the kids she treats.  She is funny, playful, and at the same time completely professional.  Every appointment began and ended..."

"Dr. Cooper is a one of a kind doctor. Not only does she have a heart of gold, but she's the best of the best in her field. My daughter was first diagnosed with strabismus (cross of the eye) at 1 years old and it still baffles me how Dr. Cooper handles her at each appointment. She's got a gift with kids. I highly recommend her to any parent who has a child with vision needs. 5 stars!"
More
"We went to see Dr Cooper for a second opinion after the first doctor that my PD had recommended for my son said he needed a procedure to remove a number of sties that he has in his eyes.  He is only 4.5yr and the idea of having him put to sleep before exploring other options really scared us.We got a very quick appointment with Dr. Cooper after explaining to the very nice person who answered the phone the situation.  My husband took my son and we were super impressed with how sweet she was to my son, how much she dedicated to him and how detailed she was.  She also came back with an option ..."
More
"If there were a place to add stars, I would.  Dr. Cooper is the BEST in her field.  Ask any medical professional and they will suggest Dr. Cooper.  We were referred to her over a decade ago for a pediatric issue and now we all visit this practice for our eye care.  She is practical, has a wonderful sense of humor and she is incredibly intelligent.  Friends have used Dr. Cooper for various pediatric surgical procedures and she is top notch.  I recommend her without reservation for any pediatric issue."
More
"Dr Cooper had been working with my daughter and her intermittent exotropia over the last three years and has been wonderful. My daughter is always excited to go see Dr. Cooper!We recently made the difficult decision to have surgery after exhausting all other options.Last Friday she had her surgery. Though the whole process is scary Dr. Cooper's care, attention and positive attitude was reassuring. I don't feel my daughter could have been on better hands.  She also works with another pediatric opthomologist during surgery -giving another level of security to worried parents.  If I could give..."
More
"I thought Dr. Cooper was fantastic!  She did a great job handling my son who was scared to be there, and she was thorough and reassuring regarding an unusual situation he has with one of his eyes.  The office itself felt a little busy (long wait times, hard to get an appointment, etc.), but I think that's mostly because she's busy because she's so well-regarded.  We had a great experience here and have already recommended Dr. Cooper to two friends whose children need to be seen."
More
"Even thorough I had to switch to another optometrist; Dr. Cooper's Optical Department is definitely a keeper.  Patrick helped me two years in a roll.  He is truthful, technically-excellent, and very importantly, he always bears his customer's best interest in his mind.  You may prefer the frame choices here more than some other places."
More
"Love her. Competent and charming! Took in my daughter to see her and then went back to get my eyes examined by her colleague."
More
"i LOVE this office. It's a great place for any age. They have really nice, smart doctors who just want to help you get the best vision possible.They also have a great selection of glasses to choose from and always have the designer brands I love. I always like coming here."
More
"Dr Cooper has been my eye doctor for several yearsl She's great with my "50 year old" eyes and has great optical department. Also Dr. Apte is great and good resourse for glaucoma checks. Nice staff. Great office."
More
"Dr. Cooper is Awesome!  We have been seeing her since she opened her office and every visit is fantastic.  I wish all doctors would care about their patients like Dr. Cooper does.  You won't find a better doctor in the country."
More
"We were so impressed with several visits that we had to Dr. Cooper's office, that we felt compelled to write a review. We now understand why she is so highly regarded. Not only is she incredibly intelligent and professional, but she is very compassionate and kind-hearted. She brings a warmth and energy to the room that kids love...(Who wouldn't? Even us adults were delighted with her!). It's our impression that she understands that children can be quite nervous about an eye appointment, and that having someone peer into and/or pour drops into such sensitive organs as the eyes can be somewha..."
More
"My kids have been happily seeing Dr. Cooper since 2003. She is the only ophthalmologist who has been able to coax my "high octane" autistic child to not just cooperate but participate in a full eye exam. I would drive 100 miles for my kids to see her if we had to. She is a gem."
More
"The best glasses I have ever had in my entire life I got at Dr. Cooper's office.  They fit well, look great, and I get a lot of compliments on them.  The staff in the optical department is genuinely interested in helping you find a pair of glasses that you will be happy with."
More
"Dr. Kim Cooper has been my eye doctor since I was 3 and half years old and I am now 19 years old. She has been fantastic and very accommodating. I am a pitcher and since I started playing baseball Dr. Cooper has been persistent in teaching me about eye safety, because I am blind in one eye. I have requested for years that Dr.Cooper carry Oakley's, because I love them and the way that they look.  Recently Dr.Cooper has started carrying Oakley's. Along with her skills, the Optical has fitted my needs with Oakley's and I am 100% satisfied with them. I recommend for anyone to see Dr.Cooper beca..."

"I have recently switch my son to see Dr Cooper  we were with Dr Day for many years. I'm  glad I made the switch the office was so much cleaner. Dr Cooper spend time explaining the exam for my son didn't feel like she try to rush us out. My son was so happy after the appt. he told me he likes Dr Cooper and don't want to go back to the orther office. I am very happy with Dr Copper. I  wish I made the switch earlier."
More
"I have a special needs kid who is very difficult to handle during medical appointments. He's been through a lot with doctors and is pretty hard to keep still and has very little language. Dr. Cooper and her staff came into the room fully prepared to deal with him and made me (and each of my 3 sons) feel comfortable throughout the entire visit. The dilation was not as hard as I would have expected given my son, and each time I've been there, the exams have gone almost miraculously smoothly. I have no idea how she does the exam so quickly and gets the data from my very uncooperative son. She ..."

"When you rate on Yelp, and you choose 5 stars it says "As good as it gets!" This is very true about Dr. Cooper. While friendly and kind she knows how to work with your child in a second.My 6 year old has been wearing glasses since he was 4 1/2, after a magical appointment with Dr. Cooper he got an entirely new prescription and has been enjoying his amazing SPORTS GLASSES for almost a month. My son does play sports and while he is a primary school student wearing these glasses since then has already helped him avoid getting a black eye from playing dodgeball twice.  DR. COOPER THANK YOU!I al..."

"Was recommended by a friend to Dr. Cooper!  What a team! From the moment we walked in (took my two boys, ages 6 and 3), were welcomed with smiles and care (Maura) in the front office is awesome!  Dr. Loo initially saw the boys then Dr. Cooper met with us. My boys (as well as myself) were instantly at easy.  Dr. Coopers team were kind, thorough with the exams and explained everything step by step, not only to me but to my little guys so there was no fear at all!  It was like meeting old friends.  They were caring to the boys, and so professional as well.   I live in Fremont, and the trip to ..."

"Gosh, I love this place.A nice doctor, plus accurate readings of prescription. And plenty of parking."

"Great experience with my infant who had blocked tear ducts. Highly recommend."
More
"My daughter was born with a clogged tear duct on her left eye.  After a couple of months of doing massages and eye drops, it was still not corrected.  Our pediatrician referred us to Dr. Cooper to take it from there, and she was really helpful, and explained why it was happening, what our options were, and what the suggested course of action was.  She is super friendly, and our daughter loves her - she smiles ear to ear when she sees her.We ended up scheduling a tear duct probing procedure, which sounded very scary to me, even after Dr. Cooper assured me that it is a very common procedure a..."
More
"Dr. Cooper has been seeing our 4 year old son (who has autism and a host of medical problems) since he was 4 months old.  She is an incredible doctor.  She is very knowledgeable, caring, professional, and supportive.  She has been able to do eye exams on my son making them fun and not scary which is a real trick since he is non-verbal and can't sit still.  She has always offered to come and see him if he goes under anesthesia (which luckily hasn't happened for a while).  She is great with the developmental issues and has offered valuable information to me about the usefulness (not in our ca..."
More
"Dr. Cooper is almost magical. I have a non-verbal child with autism and she can give him an eye exam -- and she does it with great fun. She is well known in the special needs parent community for her extraordinary kid skills, her speed and accuracy, and her kindness. I trust her, I adore her, and I take all three of my kids to her. All three are well cared for with this office.Once, when my son was about 7 years old, he needed sedation for a medical procedure. Dr. Cooper offered to come to the hospital for a thorough exam while he was "out." She arrived as the anaesthesiologist was putting ..."
More
"Dr. Cooper has been a Godsend for my son. He had horrible eye sight and Dr. Cooper was all over it. She tried many things for many months before we decided on surgery. I felt ready to do surgery because of how much time and attention she had given my son. On surgery day, Dr, Cooper showed up with a stuffed animal for my son and while holding his hand SKIPPED with him into the operating room. After surgery, when I got chocked up seeing my son still "under", she was quick to give me a big hug and stayed as long as we needed her. I adore Dr. Cooper and feel so blessed that she was recommended ..."
More
"Dr. Kim Cooper Rocks!  This was the best doctor's visit we have ever had.  I was amazed at how well she could relate to my children and explain things so we could understand them.  My kids loved going to the eye doctor and are now excited to wear their glasses.  The kids had so much fun playing with toys and laughing with Doctor Cooper they forgot they were at the doctor's office.We were amazed at how competitively priced her optical department was too.  For the service we received we expected to pay a lot more for the quality products we purchased, but they were very reasonable.We drove al..."

"We have been going to Dr. Cooper for three years and have been very happy.  She is great with kids and the office is well staffed."
More
"Found Dr. Lynn Valdez here at Dr. Kim Cooper office and was excited as I saw her before in her old office and loved her professionalism.    Even though this office is mostly geared to kids Dr. Valdez makes you forget all that with her thoroughness and bed side manners. I very much recommend her to all my friends."
More
"This review is for Dr. Feliciano.I was actually just looking up the office phone number and decided to write a review. I feel like Dr. Feliciano has always taken an inordinate amount of time with me and my children. She is kind. thoughtful, and always answers all of my questions in a very complete and understandable manner. I think she is an excellent doctor and VERY thorough. I would recommend her wholeheartedly."
More
"This review is for Dr. Feliciano, who is housed under Dr. Cooper's practice.Dr. Feliciano is the best optometrist I've ever been to! I was surprised to find that less than stellar review on here.  She has easily made it into my "CIRCLE OF TRUST'.  You know what I'm talking about - the dentist, hairstylist, doctor, that you carefully scope out before letting them near your teeth, hair, nails, wallet, etc.  My circle of trust is almost complete.  I am now looking for a good dentist.But I digress.Dr. Feliciano is fantastic. I've needed glasses since I was 13 and I've seen many optometrists - f..."

"Dr. Cooper is a gem.  We found her via referral from our pediatrician 7 years ago.   She's got a playful manner that instantly disarms my daughter and makes her feel safe in the "big scary doctors' office".  She instills great confidence in my husband and me because she is so "on it" when it comes to my daughter's care.  I had a number of questions about the implications of an enlargement of the optic nerve, and onset of myopia which turned up during a regular check up last year.  She fully explained both, volunteering helpful contextual information, and answered every question I had.  It w..."
More
"Dr. Feliciano was great with my 2 year old!   She's very gentle and has a way of making children feel at ease.  The clinic has different types of equipment geared towards little ones.  When my daughter wouldn't cooperate, Dr. Feliciano changed her methods to make sure she got a comprehensive and complete exam.  The facility was very kid friendly, and the wait was not long at all.  They even have a movie room!  I would recommend Dr. Feliciano for all children!"

"You will be in great hands with Dr. Kim Cooper.Last week, my 2-year old daughter had strabismus (eye muscle) surgery to correct her "lazy eye".  It was performed flawlessly by Dr. Cooper.  I CANNOT thank her enough for taking such great care of our little girl.  The surgery procedure went exactly as how Dr. Cooper described it.  Our daughter's recovery has been amazing.  She was pretty much back to normal two hours after the surgery.  Dr. Cooper called later that day to check on her well being.Three days later, my daughter was back in Dr. Cooper's office for a follow-up appointment.  We wer..."

"Dr Cooper and her staff are WONDERFUL!!!!! Having a family history or retinoblastoma we have been to see Dr Cooper every 3 months since my kids we very young! She is one of the most caring Dr's I have ever met. She has made sure to schedule herself into my kids tonsil surgery so that she could examine them while they were under anesthesia. She followed up with us later that afternoon and even gave her personal number to us in case we needed her. When my son was 2 weeks old she sent him for a complete eye exam UNDER anesthesia with the retinoblastoma specialist just to make sure his eyes wer..."

"I have been going here since i was 3 years old when I found out I had Strabismus, or "wall-eyes". Dr. Cooper is a great doctor, and was fun. She made it feel ok, that I had to see 5 different doctors for vcarious reasons. The office kept up with reminding me that it was time for a check-up. Dr. Cooper likes to make sure that you understand, and she is very calm. She doesn't immediately yell "SURGERY!" I like that."
More
"I've been taking my girls to Dr. Cooper for 6 years. They love the expereince and are easily occupied in the kid-friendly waiting room. It's well worth the long drive to find an eye doctor who is so good with the kids.However, a great doctor is not the only consideration. Dr. Cooper has worked hard to improve her office staff.Over the years we've had some frustrations with the front office staff. Those issues seem to be resolved with the recent hire of Lynn as receptionist. In the past I needed to call 6 months in advance to get an appt. I called a couple weeks ago expecting to have to wait..."

Very detailed and makes sure you understand before you leavemy son had his surgery on a friday and she took time out of her personal life to call and check up on him Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.she truely goes over and beyond!we <3 her!!!"

"This is the place to go for any eye problems, especially your kid's eye problems!Kim Cooper and her staff are excellent. I have been going to them for years, with my kids and for myself. My first visit was with my 5 year old child, after she had an accident and we thought she might have damaged her eye. Dr. Cooper had lots of fun ways to keep my daughter happy during the appointment. (and gave us an all clear!)When I developed a serious eye infection, I went there for myself and was  treated by Dr. Cooper's excellent colleague, Dr. Apte.The office specializes in children's problems like 'la..."
