Dr. Robert Kopecki, DO

Average rating 3.61 stars out of 5 (7 ratings)
Address: Wilmington, DE 19801
"I find Dr. Kopecki Knowledgeable as a physician with a good manner. However as an MDVIP patient paying a lot for better service He and his staff are lacking. I often found myself dreading figuring out the best way to schedule an appointment as they do not accept online appointments or communicate effectively via email. I am busy and that is why I pay extra for MDVIP I need the convenience or online scheduling and email communication. The Dr. also never follows up after lab works or tests something MDVIP promises. The office staff is slow and rude I have often overheard them talking about other patients in a derogatory manner. I think as a regular Dr.'s office this would be a decent choice considering what is available in the area. However as an MDVIP provider this office fails to meet basic standards outlined by the plan. I voiced my concerns several times of the course of the year I was with this office to no avail and so far MDVIP has refused my request for a refund. You would be better served choosing another MDVIP Dr. "

What is Preventive Medicine?

Preventive medicine is, in broad terms, medical care that keeps people healthy. So in a sense, all doctors practice preventive medicine. However, it is also a recognized medical specialty that promotes well-being for communities and populations. Preventive medicine specialists study the conditions and behaviors (such as obesity or smoking) that cause disease. They may make policy decisions (such as on food safety or seatbelt use) that help keep communities safe. Treating a population as a whole, they work to promote health and prevent sickness or death.

There are three main subspecialties within preventive medicine. They are:
  • Aerospace Medicine: Often applied in a military setting, these physicians care for crew and passengers in air or space vehicles.
  • Occupational Medicine: These specialists protect safe workplaces and the health of people at work.
  • Public Health: These specialists promote health within larger communities, for example by educating the public about chronic illness, or promoting vaccinations.

Some preventive medicine specialists work ‘on the ground,’ seeing and treating patients. Others work in government or organization offices. Wherever they are, preventive medicine specialists must have a wide medical knowledge base, including infectious disease, occupational health, health care management, epidemiology, and others.

Preventive medicine works towards the goal of ensuring that all members of society have the opportunity to lead a safe and healthy life.
