- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have never seen him in two years. His son died just before my first appointment, about two years ago, and he has never appeared since. His replacements were a series of nurse practitioners and a few foreign one-time doctors. The last, Dr. A. Masood, is the reason I finally left this practice and looked for another. I can sympathize with paternal grief at loss to explain a month or two or absence, but TWO YEARS is excessive. Incompetent replacements are intolerable in this profession. I am happy in my new location and would never recommend this office to anyone.
I had hip pain for 6 months. The first Dr said, "Take Aleve." 5 months after that, he said, "Double up on the Aleve." Then he said, "It could be Bursitis," and referred me to an Orthopedic Specialist. The Specialist took X-Rays and confirmed it was Bursitis and gave me a shot of cortisone in my Bursa. It took me 3 days to get over the pain of the shot and my original hip pain was just as bad as it had been 3 weeks prior to the shot. I had selected Dr. Coppola as my new Primary Care and had an initial appt with him in January, 2014. He looked at the X-Rays from 6 months before and diagnosed the pain as probably sacroiliac joint pain. He gave me a cortisone shot which felt like a flu shot. Within 20 minutes the pain was gone and hasn't returned! He is wonderful!
I have been a patient of Dr Nicholas Coppola for as long as he has been practicing here. I find him to be polite, understanding, and thorough. I understand the urgency a patient before me may have therefore yes, a little waiting time is well worth it. I myself have been one of those patients. Susan is always pleasant and the level of stress she has to deal with on a daily basis only adds to the respect I have for her. Unruly patients are just that and need to be escorted out asap by whomever it takes. Great job by all.
