Very disappointing. Dr. Copeland is not a doctor who listens to his patients. He does not welcome questions. He told my husband he needed surgery the first time he saw him and then changed his diagnosis another time. When we had questions, he responded very sarcastically. We got a second opinion and are grateful we did. My husband actually had a condition that needed urgent surgery.

Dr. Copeland was my neurosurgeon in MT for over 13 years and he's performed successful surgeries on several family and friends as well. He's a talented and gifted surgeon. He doesn't sugar coat the facts he's direct and to the point. He'll try conservative methods but if your best bet is surgery he'll let you know. If I need another spinal surgery he's my go to guy and I'm willing to travel out of state to see him

Dr. Copeland replaced two of my discs after finding bone shards up against my spinal cord. He also removed a cyst from my mother's spine. We know him to be a caring, skilled professional who stays on top of current techniques, and looks to doing the minimum necessary to restore function. I could not be more pleased -- he helped restore me to an active life style after years of pain.

Very rude asks questions only to call you a lair because he doesn't like wording you used. Is not receptive to patient asking questions. Needs to take some classes in communication skills to learn how to talk to patients. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone if this is how this office feels is ok to treat patients.

Dr. Copeland performed a disc replacement for me (torn disc at L4-L5) in 2008. I was in severe pain at the time. Now, it's 2017 and I've been weight lifting for 6 years. I also mountain bike, hike, ride horses and do, almost, anything I want. I can't thank him enough for what he's done for me.
