in Buford Ga. |
I was referred to Dr Copper for a incesional lymph node biopsy to determine a detailed diagnosis of non Hodgkin lymphoma. My referring Dr expressly ordered incesional and NOT a core biopsy. Upon my visit with Dr Copper he advised me he would be doing a core biopsy. I questioned him and emphasized that my referring Dr wanted a lymph node removed. He responded in a way as if it insulted his (inept) wisdom, and proceeded with the core biopsy. Now 3 months have to get a incesional biopsy.

I went in for surgery Jan 26, 2016. Dr. Copper listens and explains very well. Good sense of humor. I was scared since this was my first surgery. Dr. Copper helped me through that. On waking up from surgery, I didn't have any pain and asked if they were taking me in for the gallbladder removal yet. What a happy surprise that it was all over! Dr Copper came to check on me very quickly, in fact, while I was asking questions. He answered all and also mentioned I had an umbilical hernia repair also!

Dr Copper explained the surgical procedure to me beforehand in his office, then visited with me again in the hospital before I was sedated. He performed the surgery robotically, and as a result I have had less pain and downtime than other people I have know with the same surgery. I have already recommended him to friends and will again.
