Karen Addis, MD | Copperstate OBGyn Legacy Continues On

After opening Copperstate almost 30 years ago, Dr. Addis will be retiring at the end of 2021. We truly appreciate her endless commitment to women’s health and mentoring of all the providers at Copperstate.

“It is bittersweet for our Copperstate family to announce that after 41 years of OB/GYN practice in Tucson, Dr. Karen Addis will be retiring at the end of this year. She and her husband founded Copperstate almost 30 years ago, and in addition to caring for the women of Tucson, she has trained, mentored, and supported all of the physicians and providers at Copperstate. Her great surgical skills and empathetic patient care have made her an incredible role model. Her calm, gentle, and kind ways have been a steady presence in our office. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with her and learn from her. We wish her much happiness and fulfillment in the next phase of her life.” – Dr. Kathy Farias

“The legacy of care continues, with a wonderful group of doctors, nurse practitioners and PAs. We have a camaraderie¬†and legacy of care, quality and hope. Each one of us loves what we do, and I hope and pray that continues on after I retire at the end of this year.” – Dr. Addis
