Nutrition Plan Reviews

I recently attended for a Well Woman screening and the service provided was second to none. Even with Covid restrictions, there was no delay in being seen and I felt very safe in the surgery. Everything was explained fully and advice given to me. I did require some follow up with a consultant which was arranged quickly by Dr. Cooper before I had a surgery. Dr. Cooper is not my regular GP but I didn’t feel this was an issue while in the surgery, everyone was professional and friendly. Dr. Cooper has also provided me with follow up information and not just specific to the issue she identified during the screening. Thank you to all at Cooper Medicare!.
I did the 6 week plan with Dr Cooper, and was amazed with the results that I saw. I lost 18lbs in that time. I really enjoyed all the food that was on the plan, and there was so many different options. I didn’t have any cravings and I was still able to have something sweet at the end of the day. I saw an increase in my energy levels right away. Dr Cooper was so helpful and encouraging along the way, and was at the other end of the phone if I needed to ask her anything.
In 6 weeks, the difference is amazing. As well as over a stone in weight loss, I have no cravings, increased energy and feel so well. The Nutritional Plan is easy to follow with delicious recipes. I think it is especially good if you work long hours/shift work, as you can tailor the plan to suit what time you eat your meals.
I have been on the plan for 12 days at this stage and my experience has been completely positive. I follow the 6 meals a day plan and arrange to eat at the intervals recommended. In my last weigh in after 7 days on the diet I had lost 6 pounds. This completely surprised me as I expected to gain weight as I was genuinely eating a lot more. What surprised me most was how delicious the meals were. I didn’t know what to expect when I made the fish stew but it was gorgeous. I love the idea of preparing food from first principles. For example tasting the cinamon in the muesli or the vanilla pod in the banana smoothie. Making Turkey Bolognese and spiralized courgetti was a trip into the unknown that turned into a very pleasant surprise. The griddled Chicken is simple but very tasty.
The good thing is that there are so many more recipes to try. I know also that the benefit isn’t only for now but something I will constantly refer back to in the future. Finally, I would say it was surprisingly easy to give up all the other stuff because the food is so tasty and I noticed this week that I had more money left over in my wallet. So, a winner all around.
I did the Nutrition Plan and I lost a stone and a half. I now eat very differently to the way I used to. I have managed to keep the weight off, by treating myself only now and then to chocolate or crisps. I also feel much better in myself since I exercise most days. I would recommend this plan if thinking of changing lifestyle.

General Reviews

Dr Michelle Cooper has been mine and my family’s GP since 2013. I say GP, but in all honestly Dr Cooper goes above and beyond in performing her duties as GP. She has been a shoulder to cry on, a councillor, an advocate, an adviser, a listener and an amazing person in general, beautiful both inside and out.
Michelle has seen many trials and tribulations of my family over the past 7 years and has been amazing both medically and emotionally.  Michelle has a genuine concern for all her patients which is evident in the care we have received.
Michelle’s knowledge of medicine is phenomenal, she is constantly learning and adding more and more valuable services to her practice all the time .
Michelle treats me, my husband and 3 children with the upmost professionalism and also in equal terms sensitivity, tenderness and care .
No matter what illness we have presented with down through the years, from deep cuts which were sutured perfectly by Michelle ( no scar, and avoiding a trip for hours to A+E ) , to really sick kids which were seen immediately and admitted to hospital, and many many more, everything is dealt with extreme thoroughness and care.
I have absolutely nothing but admiration and praise for Dr Cooper. I feel very safe in the knowledge that she is always there for us . I also have never ever met such an amazing , hardworking team she has working with her. I appreciate how busy they all are but they have never ever failed in their standard of care and they are all a pleasure to meet and talk to.
I feel very lucky to have my entire family under the care of Cooper Medicare. Dr. Cooper is an exceptional GP who genuinely cares for her patients, she takes time to really listen and gives her patients the benefit a more open minded, holistic approach than your average GP whilst also giving out plain  common sense advice where needed!
With regards to children it is very evident & comforting to know that Dr Cooper has past Paediatric experience and her friendly approachable manner puts even the most nervous child at ease – my little girls actually enjoys her visits with Dr. Michelle!!
Finally it is worth mentioning that the Practice itself is a friendly place to visit and all staff I have dealt with are professional, helpful and respectful.
I have been with Dr Cooper for years. I am very grateful to her as she insisted on consultants both in KGH and CUH to review my case, phoning and writing to them to highlight how unwell I was. She was right. I am a ALS patient diagnosed in Beaumont Hospital and under the care of Dr. Orla Hardiman. Dr Cooper recognised pathological symptoms better than some consultants. Thank you for this. Really appreciated.
Very well managed, clean and professional clinic. From when you arrive in reception to whether you are visiting one of the nurses or Dr. Cooper herself everyone is friendly and welcoming & it is always a pleasant experience no matter how busy the clinic is at the time. A very strong level of care and attention from all staff.  I have been a patient of Dr. Cooper for a number of years and I could not imagine attending any other GP, she treats her patients with such respect and compassion and always has such a caring manner. It really is a wonderful clinic with wonderful staff and I would highly recommend it.
Upon relocating back to Kerry searching for a supportive G.P Dr. Michelle Cooper was recommended. At my very first visit my medical history and presenting complaint was discussed at length and a treatment path outlined. I felt completely reassured and at ease knowing I was in the safest of hands. Dr. Cooper is an extremely kind, compassionate and empathetic doctor. The entire team at Cooper Medicare are highly professional, supportive and welcoming. I highly recommend Cooper Medicare, an exceptional service on healthcare.
My family and I have been with Cooper Medicare since 2014 and during that time the support and care from Dr Cooper and her staff has been second to none – you are always met with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and waiting times are minimal.  I really couldn’t recommend the practice highly enough!
My baby has been with Dr Cooper since he was 3 months old. The care and attention he receives is excellent. Always very personable, caring and thorough. Dr Cooper listens to all of my concerns, especially as a new mum this can be a worrying time. The high standard continues throughout all areas of the practice; the nurses are so friendly and professional, the receptionists are fantastic also.
I recently attended Cooper MediCare with what I thought was a minor compliant. Having never had any serious health issues in my life, and living quiet a healthy lifestyle, I did not expect any serious problems. I was seen promptly by Dr Michelle Cooper. I was greeted in a lovely welcoming and calming way. After explaining my health concerns to Dr Cooper, and answering the doctor’s questions, she quickly diagnosed a problem I never thought could happen to me with a trouble free past. Tests were done on me immediately such as ECG, Blood pressure, and Blood tests. I was extremely impressed with the level of service and high standard of equipment and service at Cooper MediCare. Dr Cooper’s diagnosis was proven correct by the tests. I got upset by this shock, and having had a recent bereavement in the family by similar issues, made me more anxious, scared and upset. Dr Cooper and the staff members I dealt with were so understanding and caring, I cannot find words to thank them enough. They reassured me I would be looked after as it was caught in time, and I left that day although anxious, knowing I was going to be well minded. The follow up since leaving the surgery that day has been exceptional. I have been phoned regularly to keep me up to date with progress in arranging further care for my medical condition. The attention to detail has been exceptional, giving me the peace of mind that I will be ok. You hear so much these days of people getting lost in the system, this certainly does not happen when dealing with Cooper MediCare. Although I still have a bit of a journey to go with my medical complaint, I know I am in safe hands, and will get the care and attention that is required to get me back to a healthy happy life. I would Love to take this opportunity to thank Dr Cooper and the excellent staff of Cooper MediCare for everything they have done for me, in a life or death situation.
Both myself and my husband have been attending Cooper Medicare for many years. We are both extremely happy with the care and attention we receive. Everyone working in the practice are so helpful and attentive to our needs, nothing is ever too much trouble.
Excellent care and attention by all at Cooper Medicare. I would highly recommend this doctor and all the team. Wishing you every success in the future.
As a new mom, having recently joined as a patient I am really impressed with the level of service at Cooper Medicare.   The reception staff and nurses are very efficient and a pleasure to deal with and Dr Cooper is not only an excellent GP but is very kind, caring and respectful and really goes above and beyond.  I would highly recommend anyone to join this modern and dynamic practice.
Dr. Cooper and all the team of nurses & receptionists are wonderful. Kind, caring and professional in every way, they have been so helpful and accommodating; providing me with the peace of mind that my health care needs are being looked after every step of the way through my pregnancy. I would highly recommend Cooper Medicare!
I first came to Coopermedicare seeking a second opinion on continuing health  issues I was having. Dr Cooper was the first doctor to really listen to the symptoms I was having and finally offer relief. I have also had the care of Dr Smith and found him to be extremely thorough and helpful.
From the friendly, considerate receptionists at the front desk on entering the practice, to the nurses that took a personal interest in my maternity care with my first baby, everyone is always there to help and offer professionalism and considerate care. Not forgetting the  practice manager who is always around to help with any queries down to the amazing doctors themselves. I have found this practice to be a wonderful place to take care of the health needs of my family and I wouldn’t consider anywhere else.
In short, this practice is thorough, professional, organised and in my experience has always gone a step further to ensure the highest standard of patient care. I am confident entrusting my families health needs to this practice of professional healthcare providers.
My family and I have been patients at Cooper Medicare since our relocation to Tralee in October 2018. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Cooper and her staff at Cooper Medicare. They have always been very accommodating with appointments especially for my small children when they were ill.
I have always found Dr Cooper professional, approachable, kind and thorough. I have the utmost faith in her diagnosis and capabilities. I feel confident leaving her practice that we have been put on the right road.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Cooper and her practice to anyone seeking an excellent and reliable family doctor.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cooper for over two years and think she is an exceptional doctor. She is extremely thorough .  She is a great listener is very understanding and a very caring doctor. She has called me numerous times at home to see how I am feeling after visiting her with an illness.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cooper’s for several years which also included my antenatal  care during my pregnancies. I have always found Dr. Cooper and her nursing staff extremely kind and thorough. I never felt rushed and they all took great care of me during those appointments.  The  level of care was exceptional. They go beyond what is expected of them and I really feel they genuinely care about you.
It is a very warm and welcoming practice and I’ve no hesitation in recommending it to others.
I cannot recommend Dr. Cooper and the staff at Cooper Medicare highly enough.
Dr. Cooper is the most thorough GP I have ever been a patient of. As somebody who has experienced a very serious bout of poor health, it is crucial to me that I have a good relationship with my GP and can rest assured that I am in safe hands. Dr. Cooper is that GP. I trust her completely and she has helped me enormously throughout my difficult health journey. She is fast acting and accurate and truly leaves no stone unturned with her patients.
Dr. Cooper is also GP to my 15 month old daughter. She is so very gentle and caring with my child, who has always been at ease in her presence.
Aside from the wonderful care that Dr. Cooper provides, I must mention that the surgery itself is a very pleasant environment. It is bright and clean and clearly well maintained. There is a beautiful fish tank in the waiting room, which my daughter loves to look at, as well as plenty of toys to keep her occupied while she waits.
The nurses at Cooper Medicare are second to none. It’s never pleasant having your child vaccinated, but Geri and Michelle do a fantastic job and my daughter always leaves the practise smiling. They are beyond competent, in addition to being friendly and welcoming people.
Medical receptionists Amanda, Catherine and Olive are highly efficient and helpful. It is a comfort to always be greeted at reception with a smile.
I have recommended Cooper Medicare to many people, and will continue to do so as I don’t believe it is possible to get a higher standard of medical care anywhere else.
I have been a patient of Dr Michelle Cooper for many years. Dr Michelle Cooper is an excellent doctor. Very professional and attention to detail with all medical matters, especially on follow up appointments I have had in hospitals. Dr Cooper is outstanding. I can’t praise her enough. Also the Nurses Michelle and Geri and the reception staff. Great teamwork in all departments of this practice. I would highly recommend Dr Michelle Cooper.
