Ratings for Dr. Michael Copland
I have seen Dr. Michael Copland now for nine years and I travel nine hours just to do so. He is current on his knowledge and stays well informed with new research to keep his practice relevant. I would and have trusted him with my kidney health for years and will continue to do so. I am young and have a long ways to go in life. He has done nothing but support me in all my decisions and is always willing to help me achieve my goals with my health as his #1 priority. I can appreciate a physician who respects his client's autonomy the way he does. It is very important to me as a client. I also appreciate the fact that he explains everything to me and has never underestimated my ability to comprehend or participate in a conversation regarding my health. He also has amazing assistants working with him who are always so kind to me. What a huge difference going to a city health centre makes in quality of care!
Dr. Copland is knowledgeable, thorough, extremely good at what he does, and a very kind and caring doctor as well. I have seen him for 6 years now for a complicated and rare disorder, and he has been a lifesaver (literally) in the sea of confusion that is our health care system. He doesn't hesitate to investigate a condition that has nothing to do with your kidneys if he feels it is warranted, and he follows up on every test he orders. He is remarkably accessible for a specialist, as well. Anybody would be lucky to have him as their doctor. I have been very grateful for his skill and expertise through the years.
I met Dr. Copeland when he was a Fellow at St. Pauls Hospal and I was a dialysis patient. I was interested in Home Hemo dialysis and he was interested in starting this a program. Eventually, he got the program started. It now benefits me, and hundreds of other patients across BC. I started dialysis in 1982 and have had the great fortune of getting some of the best Nephrologists in the world. Dr. Copeland is one of the those doctors. He is very intelligent,caring, empathetic and has a great sense of humour. My appointments with him are always positive, no matter what health issues I face. I am so grateful for his care.
I have been seeing Dr. Copland for over ten years. He was wonderful at explaining what was going, vigilant in trying out different medications to correct it and has kept my kidney disease in check very successfully. I can't imagine a better doctor (or a nicer person).
I liked Dr. Copland and saw him for many years. Recently I had cancer and my kidney function became severely reduced. Dr. Copland did not reprise me of the seriousness of my kidney function or lack thereof. Although he meant well, I was not aware of how loss of kidney function would affect my future. I wish he had been upront.
Dr. Copeland is an excellent doctor. He has been very punctual, appears to be very knowledgeable, is helpful, clear and concise and is very open and clear in explanations, He listens well and is very responsive to patient concerns. I found him very friendly and easy to talk to and his examination was very thorough. He also appears to be quite accessible. He's the best doctor I've seen for a long time.
