Nursing and reception staff excellent. Dr. Kaufmann answered all of my questions and his treatment, (cortisone shot-2nd one), is giving me pain relief. He explained the shots and gave me an exercise to do. Excellent attention to this patient!

Excellent experience, I loved Dr. Kaufman and everyone on the staff, including the Hand fellow doctor, whose name I don't recall, but she was lovely to work with too. I got nauseous after getting an injection and they took care of me well.
