Alexander Copelan, MD

Dr. Alexander Copelan joins Consulting Radiologists, Ltd. specializing in Neurointerventional Radiology. Dr. Copelan is originally from Columbus, OH and began his education at Johns Hopkins University. He earned his medical degree from Loyola Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, IL followed by a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at William Beaumont in Royal Oak, MI where he also served as chief resident. He then crossed the country completing his fellowship first in Neuroradiology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA and then Neurointerventional Radiology at the UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco, CA.

Dr. Copelan said he became a provider because “I have always had empathy for those in need and have wanted to help people from as far back as I can remember. My parents are physicians, as were both my grandfathers, and I saw the gratification they experienced in their careers and wanted to be a part of this special community.” When asked what he enjoys most about being a radiologist, Dr. Copelan tells us that he appreciates the opportunity to treat patients with potentially life-threatening cerebrovascular diseases through a minimally invasive approach.

Outside of work, you’ll find Dr. Copelan spending time with his wife and two young daughters and that he is most proud of the man and father he’s become since the birth of his eldest daughter in 2016. He also enjoys exercising, traveling, and is an avid fan of college and NFL football so it’s perhaps not surprising that his second choice of career would have been sports journalism.
