I recently met Dr. Kopitsky at Missouri Baptist. He was assigned my case while I underwent a series of cardiology exams. I had entered through the ER with symptoms of a heart blockage. He assured me that I was in good and caring hands. Fortunately, my situation turned out not to be serious but his guidance and consideration for my case made me feel that regardless of the outcome, he would help get me well. I am grateful for his attention to my issue and have only high praise for Dr. Kopitsky.
