Patient Comments (1)
in Lafayette, CO |
Dr. Kefer was the perfect match for my condition. His communication was absolutely clear, respectful, and professional. He is fully qualified (patent holder, MD, PhD--all related to urology). He both diagnosed and treated me, and I have recovered with no complications.
