Doctor of Physical Therapy
Dr. Cooper Lee knew that his passion in life was to help people. During his undergraduate years at California State University of Long Beach, Dr. Lee pursued photography and used the media of art to display social injustice. However, in 2015, Dr. Lee’s course of life changed when he became interested in helping people through the medical field while volunteering his time in India. Dr. Lee received his Doctor of Physical Therapy at Loma Linda University in 2016 and completed a year-long orthopedic residency program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, which concentrated on diagnosing and intervening various complex chronic orthopedic injuries. Dr. Lee is interested in all sports but grew up playing tennis since he was 5 years old. He continued to play tennis in high school, for two years in college and is still competing competitively in the United States Tennis Association leagues. In his free time, Dr. Lee enjoys playing tennis, basketball, football, and volleyball.
I take the time to understand how and why the patient’s movements are causing their pain, which gives me the platform to treat my patients, specific to their needs.
