I wouldn't send my dog to her!

Dr. Copeland has been my parent's doctor for years and I have pretty much begged them on multiple occasions to change doctors. I have POA of my parents. Dr. Copeland recently put my dad in hospice. Apparently there is poor communication between Dr. Copeland and hospice. So I called Dr. Copeland's office to get clarification on what medication he is supposed to be taking since I am the one that dispenses the medication. Dr. Copeland was so rude! I tried to explain to her that she was telling me one thing and hospice is tellling me something else. She accused me of interrupting her and was very belittling as we were going over the medication list. She even said that my dad has been on Gabapentin for over a year. No he has not! I know this for a fact because I dispense his medication. She has no clue what she is doing which I have known this for years but for her to be so rude on the phone, when all I am trying to do is understand what medication my dad is supposed to be taking, is completely unacceptable. I have been in the medical field for 20 years so I understand what doctors go through to treat patients. Dr. Copeland is completely unprofessional and has no respect for her patient's caretakers.

No better doctor

Dr. Copeland cares about her patients, always seems to be current on medical issues and prescription information, and listens. I'm always worked in if I need to be and scheduled appointments are always on time.

Good job!

I have always had a good experience at Dr. Copeland's office. Sherry, Cindy and the whole staff are always courteous and helpful. To me, being a good doctor or being a good patient is all about building a relationship with that person. It comes over a period of time, knowing and understanding each person only happens with being familiar with each other. A "good" patient is one that is comfortable with the doctor and gives them good information. A "good" doctor is one willing to discuss conditions or aspects of that persons life that may contribute to overall health and use it to help reach a conclusion. Its not a perfect world and people make mistakes, as a patient my job is to accurately detail my condition and even offer opinions that might help. Dr. Copeland has always listened to me and valued my opinion. No one knows my body better than me.
