  • Assistant Professor of Family Medicine, School of Medicine


Laurel Hallock-Koppelman is a family nurse practitioner with a special interest in women's health and family medicine. She became a nurse practitioner after working as a nurse in hospitals. She was troubled by the number of people who needed access to health care to avoid serious health problems like stroke or high blood pressure. She appreciates the opportunity she now has to practice preventive medicine. She works to diagnose and treat the whole person rather than the disease.

Dr. Hallock-Koppelman has a special interest in substance use disorders and the use of buprenorphine for treatment of opioid addiction and pain.

When she's not working, Dr. Hallock-Koppelman loves to read, play tennis, run with her two dogs and spend time her husband and two teenagers.
