Ratings for Dr. Marcel H. Koppel
Have seen this physician on a walk in basis at a clinic twice. He wants to find something wrong, so he will put words and thoughts into your head to make you believe what he is saying about your health is correct. So beware, I'm so glad I have faith in my own senses regarding my health. He lectured me about having kidney disease twice, frightened me until I asked a physician friend who assured me I was just fine. And he did some things which I didn't like and I told him they were inappropriate. Be careful, he should be retired.
I went to two other doctors before I saw Dr. Koppel but they were unable to diagnose correctly my medical problems and the treatments they gave me did not help. Then a friend recommended Dr. Koppel. He was very friendly and thorough and ordered some tests I had never had before, then prescribed a couple of new medicines. After two weeks I felt like a new woman! All my symptoms were gone!. I can do now all the things I couldn't do before. Thank God and my friend for directing me to Dr. Koppel.
I was unpleasantly surprised to see that he is still practicing and in Palm Springs. I went to him for many years when he was in Santa Monica and thought he was good - because my normal health was good. When I developed a life threatening problem he made multiple poor judgements. I believe that I am alive today not because of him, but in spite of him. I caution potential patients, as his manner is warmly disarming.
My husband and I were just in today to see Dr. Koppel and we are so very much impressed with him we had to take the time to write and let all of you know what a wonderful doctor he is. I didn't know I had a heart problem when I first saw Dr. Koppel, but after listening to what I had to say,conducting an EKG, and noting that I had very slow heart rate, he arranged for me to get a pace maker and saved my life. I had been to another internist who didn't think that I had a heart problem, but infact, I truly did have one. Dr. Koppel has been absolutely terrific with following up with me and has a genuine concern for his patients.
