PETROLIA, ON Sarah Milner, Executive Director of the Family Health Team, announced today that Dr. Samantha Cooper M.D. will be joining the team as a Primary Care Physician. Dr. Cooper will have offices within the team site in Petrolia, and will begin her practice in November.
After receiving her medical degree from St. George’s University, Granada, Dr. Cooper completed her residency at Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital in Grosse Point, Michigan.

For the past five years, Dr. Cooper has called Alvinston home where she resides with her husband and new baby.
Dr. Cooper said, “I am so happy to be working back home in Ontario where I can continue to practice family medicine. I am looking forward to sharing my special interests and experiences in women’s health pediatrics, diabetic care and preventative medicine and wellness with an amazing team of physicians at the Family Health Team.”
Milner said, “We are so grateful to our Family Health Team Recruitment Committee for working so hard to make this possible. Dr. Cooper brings with her the kind of experience that will contribute greatly to exemplary patient care. We are all looking forward to working with her.”
