Danis Copenhaver, MD
I'm a board-certified pediatrician with over 7-years of experience caring for children from newborns to adolescents. I grew up in small towns in Texas and Arkansas and spent my young life wanting to emulate the doctors who took care of me and my family. I moved to New York for my medical training and fell in love with the city and pediatric medicine. I have been a private practice pediatrician in Brooklyn since 2014, and I love practicing in my community where I have put down roots. I am committed to providing individual, family-centered care and getting to know each of my patients personally.
Approach to patient care
In each encounter with a child, I work to provide not only excellent, evidence-based care, but to share knowledge to empower parents and caregivers to trust their instincts. I do this through open communication, collaboration toward health goals, practical advice, and a healthy dose of humor. My goal is health and wellness for the entire family.
Empathetic, thoughtful, candid, playful.
