I consulted him for my knee..which needs to be replaced. He hardly looked at my knee and said I need a partial and another doctor would do it. He had his nurse inject rooster comb..she did great.. I had to back the following week for 2nd injection...Dr. cope did the injection and it hurt like the dickens..so much so I couldn't walk. He left the room, never came back to check on me so I limped out and found another much better doctor at another practice

Very unprofessional and lack of respect for patients and their time. They are terrible about getting results back to you. I would not recommend this doctor to anybody. He does not seem to have any interest in his patients, and you may only see him for a minute before he moves on to his next patient. Once again very unprofessional, and I would not recommend him to any serious patients.

Dr. Cope was very thorough in the diagnostics and discussed several options before we agreed surgery was necessary. He helped me make the right decision and when he completed the surgery, I healed rapidly and with no complications. An important part of this was doing the rehab that was recommended and a little more at home as well as not doing more than I should.
