Clayton Cooper

Since starting at Geisinger, I have enjoyed the expanded care team that helps to support me and my patients. I have made close connections with my coworkers, and the nurses in my building are my “social history” for when I see a new patient, with many having worked in our clinic for 20 years! I enjoy being able to precept for the Geisinger Juniata Family Medicine Residency on a rotating basis, as well as precepting medical students in my clinic as an Assistant Professor of Family Medicine in the Department of Population Health at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.
