Dr Copeman’s philosophy is that the patient comes first:

  • first in considering which tests to have;
  • first in considering what treatments to pursue; and
  • first in deciding where and how they want their care provided

If you or a relative are worried about cancer, the tests involved or the treatment recommended, please ask your doctor about a referral to see Dr Copeman.
