Cooper Couch is a bilingual, board-certified PA who values service, leadership, patient advocacy, and diversity. Cooper was born and raised in rural Oklahoma and understood the importance of quality, accessible primary care after becoming a caregiver to both his parents at a young age. He believes in providing high-quality, evidence-based medical care through shared decision-making with his patients.
For Cooper, healthcare is a human right, and he is a strong advocate for the uninsured and underinsured at the state and national levels. He has served in numerous local, state, and national leadership positions and is known for his dedication to caring for others through primary care and community health. Cooper has a special interest in family medicine, LGBTQIA+ care, particularly gender-affirming care, Substance Use Disorder, and Latino health.
