Dr. Kimberly Cockerham is excited to expand SENTA Clinic’s medical and surgical offerings to include advanced care in neuro-ophthalmology, eyelid/orbital oncology and oculofacial restoration. She returns to San Diego having earned her undergraduate degree at UCSD. She earned her medical degree from George Washington Health Sciences University, and was awarded an ophthalmology residency at the prestigious Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) and further expanded her scope of practice with two fellowships. She had the privilege of serving our armed forces for 15 years including serving as the former Chief of Oculoplastics/Orbital Disease at WRAMC during multiple international conflicts. She also served as Chief of Service at Allegheny General Hospital as well as at UC San Francisco. Dr. Cockerham is an Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology, Stanford School of Medicine; first appointed in 2006.
Dr. Cockerham was raised in San Mateo, California and has been in practice in California for nearly two decades. Her patients have always been her passion. She looks forward to becoming an active community member in the San Diego community.
“I have had the privilege to care for so many wonderful patients over the years and continue to learn every day from them, through my teaching, mentoring and collaborative research. The SENTA team and I are dedicated to providing patients with minimally invasive medical therapeutics, and advanced laser and surgical approaches to address complex medical concerns.”
Dr. Cockerham looks forward to returning to San Diego and contributing to the community again. While earning her undergraduate degree in Biology at UC San Diego, Revelle College, Dr. Cockerham also earned her phlebotomy license and worked at the San Diego VA hospital, earned her Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) degree from San Diego Miramar College, and also worked as a research assistant at UCSD’s Virology lab. She was very active in student affairs and community outreach during her tenure at UCSD.
Dr. Cockerham brings decades of experience, military service, and novel neuro-ophthalmologic, orbital and oculofacial expertise to the Senta team.
“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 Let’s Face It Together to helping the underinsured and their families rebuild their lives – face and brain first: LFITfoundation.org.”
