Dr. Choper is a good listener, meets all my needs spending time and caring and understanding, With a superb staff. :)
The girls in the office don't know what they are doing. They are so inefficient! I always confirm my appt. after its scheduled and when I show up for it, they claim it was another date and I was a no show. I have NEVER been a no show at any scheduled appt.This has happened to me several times going there. One time I went there and then was advised after waiting for 1/2 hour that Dr. Choper didn't participate with my old insurance anymore. Another time I was informed that the doctor did not participate with medicare. The doctor is excellent but the girls in the office leave a lot to be desired!
She is the worse doctor in Whiting her staff is very unprofessional, They never follow up and neither does she. She takes her staffs side and not her patients side if there is a dispute about anything. No one will work for her because she does not care about her patients only the money she brings in.
was impressed with D. Choper's breadth and depth of knowledge in regard to several medical conditions I have. She provided a thorough physical exam and was very proactive in my follow-up care. She pulls no punches when counseling on how to manage current health conditions and on preventative health care -- she is forward and direct, and although you may not like what she has to say or how she says it, her authoritative manner is appreciated in helping you to understand what is necessary for maintaining / achieving better health. I found Dr. Choper to be an excellent physician and diagnostician, and will continue to see her as my Primary Care Doctor.
