Leave us a number to call to report him , Courtney. A lot of those who have posted on here will not see your post because of various reasons ( new computer, do not receive updates , no computer ..etc) Make it as easy as you can for others to do something by providing info on how to do so . I wrote a letter about him when I first posted on here about the way he treated my daughter ( and his dead in the ditch remark to her ) I was never a patient of his so it is harder for me .. I might have even called Action News or contacted some agency that could help get the word out . Good Luck .. and to ALL of you thinking of using this doctor . DON'T. ( Unfortunately , I hear he might be the onl private physician that prescribes methodone for those trying to get rid of a opiate habit . More unfortunate is the fact that methodone is just as addictive and he is NOT the type of doctor that is going to help you get rid of any habit. I do not know how he stays in business other than being a source of methodone . I have NO respect for the doctors that work there in his practice , either, as they can see what is going on but rather sacrifice their ethics than their paychecks.

I AM SO GLAD I READ THIS BOARD BEFORE I TOOK MY G CHILD THERE, THANK YOU SO MUCH ALL I NEEDED TO DO IS TAKE A VERY SCREWED UP G. DAUGHTER IN THERE TO SEE A PYSCHO PSYCHIATRIST. I WOULD SAY THAT THE FOLKS THAT HAVE BEEN TREATED SO BADLY AN EVEN BEEN HARMED BY THIS SO CALLED DOCTOR SHOULD GO FOR A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, WHICH HAS MUCH MORE POWER AND IS MORE WINABLE BY MORE THAN ONE PERSON. ME THINKS THE GOOD DOCTOR HAS BEEN DOCTORING HIMSELF.

Its great that you are one of the lucky one.. and so far the only one , that has had a professional , positive outcome in your appts with Coplin. You are not the person I worry about being harmed . Its those that go to him in a very fragile state of mind . He doesnt need to be in business any more . Simple as that . You can find another doctor but harm done on a person has to be stopped . I have seen him go off on his own staff . I have seen him make patients cry right inthe waiting room . His group of doctors in his own office do not even back him up. You may need your meds and are afraid that you cant go else where . You cant just worry about yourself when another's life may be in jeopardy . I just dont think that you know how serious this is .
I had an appointment with this so called doctor I happened to read this board and I hurried and canceled my appointment, I told the receptionist that I had heard some bad things about the doctor and that is why im canceling. She asked me where did I hear this I told her that it was my business where I heard this.

Well wish I would have seen all these horrid reviews before my daughter went to him. She too was desperate & had just moved to the area & needed a psychiatrist ASAP to adjust meds. He was the only one she could get an appointment with right away. That made me suspicious immediately. He wasn't horrible to her, but also acted like she was faking her illness and told her she looked good, despite the fact she has been feeling horrible, possibly having some delusions and acting increasingly more manic. I am a nurse & know something about these medications. I was shocked at what he prescribed for her & thus started checking further & found all of this!!! Also, just like some others said, he tried to hook my daughter up immediately with a "counselor " there, and seemed very insistent about that, even though she is already seeing someone else. I think his name was Wayne???? I could not find anything out about this person or anyone else who works in that office. This is very scary. I see most of these posts are from several years ago, and this man is still practicing psychiatry? My daughter will NOT be going back to this man. He sounds like he has some serious psychiatric,( or perhaps substance abuse) issues himself. This is just totally unacceptable for someone in his position with access to the type of drugs he has access to, and considering the very serious psychological and physical damage he could do to vulnerable people who depend on him for help. Please tell me, what complaints have been made, and to whom? This is all very frightening to me.

To the newest Mom response ...
I have no clue how this man is still considered a doctor. I have contacted what I thought was the correct place in Atlanta to have him investigated but to no avail. What canwe do ?? None of us seem to know yet all of us would do something if we could . Long agwhen I first started this post I really thought I could do something to make it so this man would never treat another person like he did my daughter . I had the desire with the fire but I fizzled and for that I feel like I have let others down.
This man can seriously hurt someone .. especially those that already have emotional issues or drug problems . Yet, mention the need for a doc that helps those with drug problems and Coplin's name is given even in a hospital ER setting. I guess the medical community either doesnt know Coplin's horrible reputation or just doesnt care about those with addictions.
I hope that EVERYONE that has responded on this comment board will take the time to google what to do to report a doctor like this ..right now . I am going to make another attempt as soon as I post this .
SOMEONE ..SOMEWHERE .. SOONER OR LATER will be heard .. Thak goodness that he is not young and age may just rememdy the situation before any medical board steps in to take action .

It sounds like a lot of misunderstanding to me. As far as methadone and narcotics, everytime he is pressed to prescribe these in the past, it always seems to become an issue with the patients that misuse (lose, got stolen, dog ate them, etc...) and so he told me he just couldn't help some people because they just don't comply. I just came out and asked him about it after reading all of these negative comments here.

I susspect that he has his bad days too. He listens to everyone's problems and they expect him to have a perfect attitude.

In my opinion, I would say that he has been an outstanding provider. I can't say that he has been perfect. I will however continue to send patients to him with all confidence that they are in good hands of a highly respected psychiatrist.

Give him break. A day in his shoes has to be tough.

No misunderstanding here . What has happened is that the GA Medical Board was contacted and perhaps , just perhaps, he is trying to get his act together . This page does not represent one person's experience with him , it represent a host of others many of who saw him multiple times . We post on these boards to help others . You have a right to your opinion as we all do but I dont want others to feel the go ahead to have confidence in this doctor just because they caught your comment . I hope that you can understand that . THis isnt just about methadone treatments , this is about little children , many without a voice who need a much more compassionate doctor when it comes to their care. Simple as that . Even an adult needs a doctor who isnt a looney that makes patients cry as well as berating his staff in front of his patients .
I was informed that the Med Board recd a more than average complaint rate about this man .I would look elsewhere . Period.

How can you say that he listens to EVERYONE'S problems when you just read over a dozen of us complaining about how he DOESN'T listen . Obviously , you are only talin from your point of view. This is NOT a good doctor even on his best day. Please DO NOT gloss over on a subject like this when it concerns people's health ..especially children .

No one is bashing if you note what comment boards are really for .. This is the only way a patient can know what type of doctors they are . It would be so much worse had a child died a premature death because of this doctor just because they werent properly informed about this doctor.
His family wasnt close by to him and I dont see where he was married so who else would have told the doc that he no longer was performing up to par? It was left to his patients as it appears his co-workers were all using him as a cash cow and didnt want to end their jobs .
Please dont discourage folks from writing reviews of doctors by referring to it as bashing . There were almost 60 comments made on this doctor . I cant find another doc that has even ten. So by reading through the comments one could get a feel about how he doctored .No one can force another not to go to a doctor just by words.
Please for all of you out there remember this as a learning experience . We need to check our doctors out before we choose them . No one buys a car without researching it . Why would we trust our most precious gift ( our life ) to someone that we didnt check out to see if they deserve our business ? We need to be reasonable and sensible in the way we comment on a doc . No two people have the same experience . The more comments and reviews the better it is for the consumer.
Perhaps , this doctor was really ill and thus acted as he did because of his illness . With noone there to police his actions we did what concerned human beings do .. I will NEVER fell badly in reporting this doctor. If all was ok his practice would have been fine. I would have never been able to live with myself had a patient suffered at his hands.
Case closed . He is now in God's hands . I am amazed at how little notice his death received in the news especially if he indeed did die while dining out . May all of those in need of a good doctor or to replace Doc Coplin be successful not only in finding a doctor that "fits" but in overcoming your illness whatever it may be. The world can understand a physical illness that is apparent but just dont seem to grip how devastating a mental disease ,or an addiction or any of the illnesses that you cant "see ", truly is. Bless each and everyone of you reading this ..Do something good or kind for another today.Sincerely , Joan
