      This doctor has been treating me for carpal tunnel syndrome for 6 months now. I was diagnosed by a qualified medical expert this week who determined that my injury is not carpal tunnel however, spinal related. Weirdly enough I was beginning to become disenchanted with David Kupfer, AND his staff, as every time I had an appointment there, I experienced long wait times before seeing the doctor, and long wait times after seeing the doctor, for aftercare or next appointment instructions. Check Yelp.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
