What People Say About Dr. David Kaufman, MD

When I went to see Dr. Kaufman I had been in severe pain for 5 months, seen 3 different doctors, was on 6 different medications and had been diagnosed with IC . From the start Dr. Kaufman was compassionate and confident he could help me . At my first appointment he explained to me I had been misdiagnosed. With Dr Kaufman’s treatment plan I was feeling so much better in 3 days. Dr Kaufman truly gave me my life back and I couldn’t be more grateful.

I was suffering from a very embarrassing problem (premature ejaculation). I've tried countless pills and seen countless doctors. Dr. Kaufman is the only MD that took the time, has the expertise and the knowledge to help treat my condition. I thank God for Dr. Kaufman and I truly recommend him to any man going through the same problem. He gave me my confidence back!!!

Finding Dr Kaufman was one of the best thing I ever done! He is very knowledgeable, kind, funny and caring. He personally responds to emails which is a huge plus as it is very reassuring to know you have a Dr there for you even without an appt. I highly recommend him!

Dr. David Kaufman is genuinely a nice guy and a great doctor. Since my very first appointment, I felt very welcomed and instantly felt comfortable discussing my symptoms. Upon discussion, Doc instantly diagnosed my issues and recommended specific treatment / medicine that would help. Three weeks later for my post follow up, I had greater results than imagined. In addition, if I ever had questions or needed a refill on my prescriptions, Dr. Kaufman would instantly answer my questions and/ or submit the prescription to my pharmacy. I definitely recommend Dr. Kaufman to those seeking a great Urologist and a great person to open up too.

Dr Kaufman is the best urologist in NYC plain and simple. He took the time to explain and treat my condition when many others dismissed my symptoms and sent me home. He went the extra mile for me and will forever be grateful that I was able to see him. I would highly reccomend him for any urologic disorder or infection that you may have. He will get to the bottom of it.

Dr. Kaufman's treatment of my illness has been and continues to be exemplary. Over a period of about 8 years, including non-invasive bladder surgery, cystoscopies, testosterone normalizing, he has always been attentive, expertly capable and very effective. I recommend him very highly. No doubts.

I found doctor Kaufman’s services extremely helpful to our needs. My wife and I had a difficult time trying to conceive our first child. My wife went through three IUI procedures that did not work. Doctor Kaufman has recommended a varicocelectomy procedure to me after which we were able to successfully conceive our first child. I strongly recommend to anyone who is having fertility issue to go see doctor Kaufman. LM

I believe tampons cause IC from my experience.
