A word from Dr. Kopriva:

“I am thrilled to practice in Northwest Kansas and join the Family Center for Health Care team. It is a wonderful place to be close to family and raise our children. It is an honor to work with my patients and their families. I find it rewarding and truly satisfying to guide and support a patient and their family through an unexpected illness in their greatest time of need. I look at my relationship with my patients as a team effort and do everything in my power to make sure everyone is engaged in the process.”
