Dr. Carley Cooper
Family Physician with Cutaneous Surgery and Skin Cancer Focus

I was drawn to medicine as it was a career that I could engage in my community in a long term meaningful way. I was born local, right here in Nanaimo. I completed a BSC in Biochemistry at McGill and returned to beautiful BC for my medical training, completing MD CCFP(EM) in 2005. I have spent 17 years as an Emergency Room/Urgent Care physician. The marriage of procedural skills and pathophysiology of cutaneous cancers continued to hold my curiosity. I have recently received my Diploma in Skin Cancer Medicine from the University of Queensland and am excited to have joined the wonderfully collaborative group of providers at Skin Care West.
I hope to ease your journey navigating the complexities of your cutaneous concerns.
