About Caroline Cooper
Caroline Cooper, PA-C, grew up in Boulder County. She entered college wanting to become a psychologist, but discovered the physician assistant profession while doing research, and working and volunteering with people with disabilities. “I grew up in medicine,” says Caroline. “My brother has type 1 diabetes and my mom researched juvenile diabetes prevention with the Barbra Davis Center, so one of my passions has always been in helping others, and understanding how a medical diagnosis can affect the patient and their loved ones.”
As a certified physician assistant, Caroline is an integral member of the Urgent Care clinic at Boulder Medical Center. She works closely with the physicians and entire team to provide a complete spectrum of walk-in care. “What I love about Urgent Care is being able to help patients in real-time addressing their concerns,” Caroline says. “I enjoy bringing evidence based-medicine into practice and finding a treatment plan that works best for each individual.”
When caring for patients, Caroline strives to be empathetic and stay in the moment while finding the best way to help them feel better. With an approach that involves education and shared decision-making, Caroline involves patients as much as possible in their care.
When not seeing patients, Caroline enjoys skiing in the winter, cycling, camping with friends, and hiking with her pup, Ollie. In fact, as a proud dog mom, Caroline is always more than happy to share photos of her fur baby upon request.
