Mary Copley, MD, Physician at Lincoln Primary Care and Ebenezer Medical Clinic, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in general family practice.
Knowing she wanted to be in medicine for her entire life, Dr. Copley is a physician at Lincoln Primary Care in Hamlin, West Virginia, and Ebenezer Medical Clinic in Huntington, West Virginia. While in pursuit of a master’s degree, she also worked as a social worker in the time she was funding her education. Ms. Copley attributes her success to the changes she had to make due to her hearing limitations. She knew that she wanted to go to medical school, so she found ways around her disability and became the best in her field. Her motto is to “Do what God tells me to do, and treat people with grace and dignity at all times.”
Dr. Copley prepared for her career by pursuing a formal education, earning a Bachelor of Science in religion and Bible studies and a Master of Science. She attained an MD at Marshall University Medical School in 1990, where she graduated as the salutatorian. Dr. Copley had the opportunity during her studies to go to Africa and work with missionaries as a physician. She recalls it as a wonderful experience that she wouldn’t change for the world. She is also affiliated with the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Moving forward, Dr. Copley plans to continue the work she is currently doing, which is working a few days a week in the local clinics as a retired physician. She would like to be remembered as a church musician and medical school graduate, all in spite of her hearing impairment. There are times when it is a problem, but mostly she goes about her life normally. Dr. Copley would advise those looking to pursue her field to be careful about modern medicine, as it is based on the pharmacy and the insurance now. She would tell them to focus most on taking care of people.
