Dr Copland did an excellent exam. I appreciated how much time he took to do a detailed neurological evaluation to establish extent of my injury. I had seen a different provider a week before this appointment after my accident and the exam done at that first appointment with the other provider (my PCP) was not as detailed. I made this appointment because I was no better/pain was terrible. I am thankful to have seen Dr Copland for recheck and glad no appointments available with my PCP. Dr Copland listened and started me on Gabapentin which relieved my pain within 2 days. I am so thankful he took the time to listen and did such a thorough exam.
