If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372.

I have lupus and most specialists do no want to see me because I'm "too complex." My immunology/pulmonology doctor referred me to Dr Kopita. I can say that my rheumatologist and myself are thankful for that. There need to be more Dr. Kopita's in the world. I will have problems with my lungs forever. O can do this with Dr. Kopita and staff by my side.
