Ratings for Dr. Jeremy D. Coplan
Dr. Coplan, in my opinion, is among the top psychiatrists in the world. Took me from a depressed shell of a man to the top of my game, but seriously he did. I am not surprised at all that some might not fancy waiting a few extra minutes or even paying a few extra bucks, because they dont realize they are seeing the best. People @ Downstate should appreciate having him around for many reasons.
To all of you have given Dr. Coplan a 5 Star rating, you understand that he is a very caring Dr. He might not always be on time because he wants to give a patient as much as time as he can and sometimes goes over time, for that matter - who has ever been to a Dr. that is always on time??? Whoever you are below, I hope that you`re mother gets well and lives to 120 years but what do you want from Dr. Coplan? He isn`t god! He has no intention of do any harm to a single patient. He is NOT A THERAPIST!!! He is a psychiatrist! His expertise is more on how the pharmacology side and unfortunately these medicines take some time to work and if there is an issue he will adjust accordingly. Did you tell Dr. Coplan what issues your mother was having? He is not there just to collect money. He is a genuine and very caring Docotor. He has no interest in making anyone feel worse. So all of you with your stupid complaints about him being on time, I`m sure he gives you more time than you are slotted for so if you are too ignorant to understand that, get lost and don`t tarnish his name. Most people realize that his not a therapist - you can all go fly a kite also. It`s not his fault that you go to him for therapy when he is not a therapist. I`m glad to see you most of you gave him the 5 starts that he deserves. Everyone else with your idiotic complaints, get lost! Find another Dr. that you think is better.
Since my mother started seeing Dr. Coplan a few years ago I have seen her mental, emotional, and physical state deteriorate worse than ever before. He beyond over medicated her and she has found herself in the hospital several times from falls, fainting, etc. from the concoction of sleep medications she was taking. He does not function as a therapist what so ever, and is completely unaware of what goes on in this woman's life aside from what she tells him. The only thing he does is keep writing her scripts and taking her money. She relies on him and thinks that she is getting great treatment, but she has become completely detatched from who she used to be and is entirely out of touch with reality. I blame him for worsening her state instead of recognizing what her real problems were.
Dr Coplan accepts cash only. For a first visit i was charged 600$ and i was never warned before hand that it would cost me this much. As previously noted by another reviewer there is a tendency of over prescribing many medications (in my case two) which i didn't take. Even though he is knowledgeable i didn't go back for a second visit.
ALthough well meaning and knowledgeable, being a Psychopharmacologist, Dr. Coplan has a tendency to prescribe a multitude of medications concurrently, each being designed to counteract the negative effects of the one before it. For example, if you take a med that makes you sleepy, he will prescribe one that wakes you up. If that med makes you thirsty, he will prescribe another to counteract that , etc. Before you know it, you're on half a dozen drugs. Take only what you need to feel better, ask questions about is being prescribed and follow you're instincts since these psychoactive drugs can have serious side effects. He can be helpful and is easy to talk to.
Dr. Coplan is in a class of his own. Over the past 20 years I have felt like a guinea pig or a test lab rat without a sucessful complete result. I have had great help with MSW's and some help over the years woth MD's but never got to the root of everything. Dr. Coplan has diagnosed my life long struggles and has prescibed the correct meds that have significantly changed my life for the better. My life has just begun - Where would I be today without my obstacles in my way? If you have been struggling to find someone that is a scientist and not a well educated MD with a script pad and a hypothesis, this is the man you need. STOP today and call his office, your life will only change for the better - Join life the way you should!
