Dr. Mark A Coppess has the following 3 specialties
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology
While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
- Heart Block
- Unstable Angina
- High Cholesterol (Hypercholesterolemia)
- Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)

It was my first time to visit SCC and this doctor; I was sent as a referral. He asked pertinent questions, and was seemingly very interested in my medical history. He gave several suggestions that might explain my symptoms. I was fitted with a monitor by an ECG technician to wear for 24 hours. He stopped me in the hallway before I left to further explain my symptoms and tell me what I should do to prevent falling again. I felt he was genuinely concerned for my situation. I have other testing being done over the next few weeks. He seemed to be very knowledgeable and intent on helping me.
I went to Dr Coppess as a referall, i was suppose to see another Dr in the office. This was the worst dr i have ever seen! I dont think i will ever go back! I was not greated by him, he came in w/ a loud boisterous voice and he never quieten down. He didnt want to hear what was wrong w/me, he only wanted to read the hospital records, he didnt want to hear my symptoms at all! He never read my chart the nurse wrote out for him 15 min prior that was my whole life story including why i was in the office! Finally, after i interupted his loud, yelling, voice he decided to look at my blood pressure charts i brought and he took my blood pressure. But, he was very forceful in doing so!! I do not recomend this dr at all! I dont care if you are having a bad day, dont take it out on your patients!!!
I found Dr. Coppess, after three visits worth, to be somewhat rude and unprofessional. He was short with me and didn't seem to care about what was going on with me.
