About Leslie Cooper, M.D.

As an all-star athlete throughout high school and college, Dr. Cooper became vastly familiar with the world of medicine. Her status as a professional triathlete placed her in and out of the doctor’s office, working through injuries and maintaining her top physical shape. It was this experience that led her to become a doctor – she longed to help people live a healthy lifestyle and stay fit and well. However, the confines of traditional medicine left her frustrated and feeling as though she was only putting a band-aid on her patient’s problems, rather than really solving them.
After attending an alternative medicine conference and working with a local compounding pharmacist, Dr. Cooper found herself intrigued and enjoying medicine again. She transitioned to functional medicine, joining BodyLogicMD and offering real solutions through treatment plans that include bioidentical hormone therapy, fitness and nutrition. As a functional medicine physician she now able to dedicate more time to her patients, ensuring they not only achieve total wellness, but have the skills and tools to maintain wellness for a lifetime.
