Wally Kopelowitz, DO

Ophthalmologist, Dr. Wally Kopelowitz, joined the staff at the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center in 2008 but he has spent more than 40 years in service to those in underserved areas. He believes that his expertise is best used to better the lives of those who might not ordinarily have the opportunity to receive quality healthcare and more specifically, eye care. He has found the genuine gratitude expressed by many of his patients throughout the years very rewarding.
