I had a very good experience when I visited this physician.

Lumbar surgery 2 days ago has apparently eliminated the unbearable chronic back and leg pain that has plagued me over the past several weeks and for that, I am eternally grateful to Dr Kaufmann and his Staff.

Dr Kaufmann took me in really fast although I was 2 hours early. He seemed to be truly concerned on my condition explained everything in detail and he seems like a very genuine person. Thanks for the great service. Dr. Kaufmann made me feel very comfortable during my appointment.
