Patient Comments (1)
Pasadena, CA |
My experience with Dr. Kaufman was unsatisfactory. It was difficult to get in to see him, and once I did, he misdiagnosed the cause of my problem (fecal incontinence) . .. twice! This wasted valuable time in getting proper treatme. Finally, I decided to go to another specialist in a nearby city, who was quick to provide tests as well as remedies. Eventually, she performed a very successful operation on my prolapsed rectum, since which time my condition has greatly improved my condition
