      I have a complicated urological condition following a spinal injury in 1987 during a sledding accident. As a result I have a neurogenic bladder and am incontinent.My long time urologist retired after 21 years. I was dreading this day for past few years. A professional acquaintance suggested seeing Dr. Kaufman for a second opinion. Her cutting edge attitude from being fervent researcher paid off for me and she has restored my continence with Botox and this occurred Xmas day 2015. George Shwab

      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.
