Community Health Partners
Your Copeman care team is where you turn for support and guidance to help diagnose or manage an existing condition, prevent illness and serious diseases from taking hold and, ultimately, optimize your health for vitality and longevity.
Screening & Diagnostic Services
Copeman Healthcare houses all of the specialized facilities and equipment used in evidence-based preventive medicine.
When a specific evidenced-based protocol requires advanced ultrasound or chest CT based on a client’s particular profile, these services are provided by private partner facilities and can be arranged immediately.
For specialized concerns, we can refer you to internal, on-site experts. You can also make self-referrals for any of the following specialized in-clinic open services:
- Brain Health and Neuropsychological Services
- Psychological Services
- Personal Training, Fitness Testing and Kinesiology Services (Exercise Medicine Specialists)
- Nutritional Counselling and Registered Dietitian Services
†Please note these offerings are charged on a fee-for-service basis. You do not need to be enrolled at Copeman Healthcare to use our on-site open services.
External Specialist Referrals
In addition to having on-site staff or visiting specialists in fields like cardiology, psychiatry and sports medicine, Copeman Healthcare works with an expansive network of specialists that are familiar with the quality and appropriateness of referrals that are generated from the doctors within our clinic.
Referrals to specialists outside Copeman Healthcare are made by your Copeman healthcare provider and are based on your personal medical needs. Your referral is booked through the provincial medical system.
While Copeman Healthcare cannot fast track your referral process, our referral coordinators work hard to source specialists with the shortest wait times and can provide private-pay options if you choose. Our external specialist network covers virtually all specialties and sub-specialties of medicine including:

Is a full body CT scan or an MRI a good option for the prevention/early detection of disease?
Although the direct risks of these scans has decreased substantially over the years, the real risk is not in the scan itself, but the possible higher-risk testing that may result from one. These imaging technologies often reveal benign or insignificant physiological anomalies that put the patient and their physicians in a position of needing to explore further. It is these additional explorations that can add significant cost and risk into the equation. Such “false positive” results can lead to anxiety, and in a small number of cases, previously non-existent new health issues.
If you are well informed and understand the risks involved, your best strategy is to have a Comprehensive Health Assessment that combines safe and evidence-based screening & diagnostics with your MRI or CT scan.
Your Copeman team can arrange for your private MRI or CT Scan (often in just days), completely brief you on the risks involved and help interpret the findings for you.
