Doctor Profile Image

Christopher L Coogan MD


  • "Dr. Coogan’s approach to my care feels personal, i.e., I do not feel as though I am “just one more patient.” His plan for my care is conservative, which appeals to me greatly. I am confident that I am in really excellent hands and have no doubt that he is recommending what is best for my continuing health. I especially am comfortable that he follows up personally after office visit or test results. He is a model physician."
