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.
Independence MO |
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.

He is rude, lies, and does not look at his incisions postop
