Being injured at work launches a frustrating, confusing, and disappointing recovery process. Even after a abnormal electrical study and a Qualified Medical Examiner showing that I had several work injuries, I had difficulty accessing the authorization for the medical treatment I needed. Fortunately, I was referred to Dr. Kupfer, and I have since been amazed at his patience, knowledge, and foresight. I am truly grateful for this medical practitioner and his office staff and physician's assist

Very disappointed. Unprofessional staff starting from the phones, making the appt, to check in, and office visit. Dr. Kupfer spent less than 5 minutes with me, didn't give me any instructions on how to care for my torn ligaments in my fingers - which have now gotten worse. He talked more about his own finger injury than mine and told me mine wasn't as bad as his. Correct me if I am wrong but I am paying for him to talk about MY injury, not his and to not compare it.

Had carpal tunnel surgery, did well on procedure but everything else was poor. Office staff in Chula Vista was very overwhelmed and seemed to be undertrained/understaffed. Always late on appts. Seemed highly inefficient that you would have to be on top of your own medical history & expectations. Dr. Kupfer gave little to no explanation on outcome of surgery nor any info on what to do or expect other than to return to office in a week. Had to do own research on post op expectations. Not good.

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.
