I don't have any more information that I went there but don't ever give up.
I know of one doctor in Warner Robins that left and went back to his home out of the US--medical board was alerted they automatically made his license in Georgia be denied. Sometimes they can send an undercover person in to really see if the situation is what people say...sure with they would here..they would get enough to close his business down.
Keep your notes but get another psychiatrist..fast...the houston medical has some but I don't know about your insurance--and I am not going to get personal with that private information--good luck....

I am the mother of the one that he told "you can die in a ditch somewhere ". However, I have no doubt that this phrase has been used by him more than one time . Name a place and time when you get together . I was not a patient of his but have witnessed too much of his wickedness to let him go on like this . I have no respect for the group of doctors that are in the group with him riding on his coattails . People have to use him because there are very few doctors dispensing treatment for opiate addiction ( methodone). Thats why they come from all over . Desperation not because of his good name. If you are one that has added a message to this board , dont forget to have a notification sent to your email address when someone else responds to this post.

Thank YOu parent for responding,

I am so sorry that this happened to your child. I couldn't imagine if he said that to my child. I am glad that you and your daughter are strong individuals. I am very serious about having this man removed. With my situation he got in my face yelling and shouting at me in a very threatning and intimidating manner. I had to tell him to get out of my face twice, in which I had to yell at him as well, becuase I refuse to let him talk to me in that manner and think that he could intimidate me. Unfortunately for him, I don't get intimidated easily. I do have the site where you can report him to the medical board. I am in the process of doing that as well. When we do have this meeting. I want to help others who may need help submitting their claim to the board as well. We will also discuss the next step, if the board refuses to listen and take us serious. Once again I am so sorry that he spoke to your daughter like that, no one deserves that, especially if they are coming to him for help. I check this post very regualary, so far I have had 3 people to respond. I would like to see more people come forward. This is going to be a long road for all of us, but please keep going through the process. I may not have a good suit against him, but I do have the power to help others, so that he won't cause someone to hurt themselves or him. He doesn't realize how sensitive some people are and he is putting his life and others in danger as well. Which honestly, I don't think that he cares much about. We can prevent this from occurring by trying to do what we can to make a difference and have this man removed and revoked from ever practicing psychiatry. He told me that he didn't need anyone's business, so we can help him make that happen. He is the one that really needs psychiatric help. Maybe they will get him some help in the process of removing him.

Thanks once again for your response. Please keep the responses coming, it gives me hope that we can and are going to make a positive change for the community.

Thank You

Yes. this guy is truly horrible and nobody should have to go through what we went through with him. So glad i finally found a doc to go to or god knows where i would be right now. I am totally up to meeting somewhere and giving a statement of how horrible he was. Even the therapist there was very unprofessional and was more to point the finger at people and other things and totally get off topic. It's just a horrible place. He's a cocky s.o.b. who needs 2 be out of practice seriously!!! I tried to report him to my insurance but they were being stupid about it but i am definitely going to try and call someone about him n file a complaint. I'm happy to help in any way i can bc this man is messing with people who are in no way, shape, or form in any kind of condition to deal with somebody of his horrible demeanor.

He basically stole my money. He would not prescribe my the medication that I need . The same medication that he prescribed me for years. When I tried to show him that I was prescribed the medicine by another physcian else where he started screaming at me. He never even saw me and billed me 225$ as a new patient . Even when the lady at the desk tried to tell him that I have been in his therapy for years. He is a piece of shit !!! I am actually looking to report him to the houston county medical board sometime this week

I was honest with the doctor the whole time . I do not trust him and honestly wished to god I never signed the paper to agree paying for for my 225$ visit. I would be more than glad to testify against him in court and still have all the empty bottles he prescribed me when I was 20 years old. I never even knew what methadone was and now I have been in and out of methadone clinics and in and out of treatment centers for years now .

he is horrible as everyone has commented, i missed my therapy session and had an appt we him as well in the same day.i was 45 min late so they charged me a no show fee, i then waited 45 minutes to see him and explained that he was charging me for the visit. i explained just as he did because of my business i was unable to make my first appt on time but would not continue as a patient if he insisted on charging me. he immediately blew up threatening to call the sheriff, i should have let him. i paid the no show fee of 60 and left. he is rude offensive and should be embarrassed by his demeaning actions and comments. the last thing i heard him say was never in 30 years had he see anything like me what an asshole

How can all of these things be happening and he still goes on with his practice day in and day out . What can be donw ?? And why arent we doing it ? Are doctors that all powerful? How about we start mailing letters to newspapers and to other doctors in his profession explaining that we are a group who have no clue how to get things done . Leave phone numbers so that maybe we can get someone to give us some answers on how to get him out of practice before he hurts more people . Please dont let him hurt another ...

I go to Dr. Coplin. Not sure why there's so many people with negative comments - he's alright - but probably not a good fit for people unaccustommed to directness. I don't expect him to sit there and listen to me - I go see a therapist when I need to talk out something. I see Dr. Coplin to get my medicine and correct my dosage and that's it. Those folks who want to complain to insurance - don't complain to my insurance. You'll just hurt me, not him.

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 .

Don't know of this doctor personally but have heard many disturbing things.

This SOB has owed me $169.00 by their own figures since Aug 2010. I have complained to BCBS fed numerous times had 3 way conversations with their office and BCBS supervisor. It is now Mar 2011 and he still owes me. I have filed a complaint with the BBB just today, maybe they can do something. I have also asked BCBS numerous times to remove him from their PPO list. STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN. He parks in the handicap space everyday, and has said to me numerous times I didn't get my degree from some 3rd world country I got mine from Emory. The only other PPO in town is from India, I love her. The man is unprofessional at least and dangerous to your health.

This guy has been pumping my boyfriends little girl full of ADHD medicines (13 different ones over time), even said she was bipolar. He doesn't even spend time with her. In the first two weeks of us living together I realized she is not ADHD or bipolar. Her blood sugar is out the roof. She is off the meds and doing better. His misdiagnosis has affected her schooling by hyping her up on ADHD meds which put her two years behind and it could have killed her. She will never see him again. He is going to kill someone.

Seemed over medicated. Just got a letter saying the gen prac will no longer be working there! Called ombudsman and left message. Can I do anything else

Please do not take anyone to this man or his colleagues. Filthy, unprofessional office. Before he even asked any questions about symptoms, he started writing a script. When I queried him about the meds he was flippant and could not give me specifics about its side effects. Did not ask about drug interactions or really anything about my medical history that could have been relevant to a diagnosis. Incredibly poor professionalism.
