How likely are you to recommend Dr. Kaufman?

(Select your rating)
I have been a patient of Dr. Kaufman for over a year and I find he is the most knowledgeable physician in gastroenterology and I have been through 5 (because the first one retired). He is down to earth, does't 'jump the gun' and come up with radical solutions that are not necessarily warranted and open to thinking about alternatives. I am so glad I found him.
