This was a referral to Dr. Kaufman so it was our 1st visit together. She was very friendly and helpful in explaining information about my condition and how to fix the problem I'm having.

It is too hard to get appts. with her for procedures. Her days are few in the office which makes it difficult to see her. I live out of town and hard to see her as she has a many others patients.

I chose her because she was an amazing doctor with my 29 year old paraplegic daughter. So I wanted her for my care too.
