Helping restore your natural appearance and optimize your function and comfort is our goal.

Communication is very important to the success of our relationship. Please text, call or email me directly if you have a medical concern.

If you want to schedule an appointment or have an administrative concern please contact the office (209- 952-3700) and ask for Sonia, my front office coordinator. If you are unsuccessful, please email me: CockerhamMD@gmail.com.

If you are a patient with a complex neuro-ophthalmic or orbital issue, please provide your records, labs and imaging (including the CD) to the office in advance of your appointment to help facilitate your evaluation. If you have had prior surgery or procedures, please bring operative reports or office notes to your appointment.

My Background

I was raised in San Mateo, California and earned an undergraduate degree in Biology at UC San Diego, Revelle College. On acceptance to George Washington Medical School in Washington DC, I was awarded a health professional scholarship from the US ARMY.

My time in the military taught me to honor and respect my patients and their families and also to understand the larger role physicians can play in a community. I remain very committed (through my foundation Let’s Face It Together) to helping the underinsured and their families rebuild their lives – face first: LFITfoundation.org.
