- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Let's start by saying the facts, Dr. Kaufman is very capable, smart and perhaps to be considered one of the best in his field. I always used to say he can move mountains! Unfortunately, my dad isn't around anymore. However, I felt very compelled to tell the world what a gentleman this doctor truly is. His staff and following of doctors can ALL be trusted. Rest assured if you are sick, he will respond immediately by getting you the help you need. He works with all doctors and personally I always felt like he could part the sea when he used to come into the room. Other doctors responded by actually looking up to him and even waiting to hear what Dr. Kaufman would say. Fact of the matter my father was dealt a pretty crappy deck of cards, but Dr. Kaufman knew exactly what to do to keep him with us for a very long time. Part of my review is a thank you to him and his staff. The other part wants the world to know that if you need help with anything, please do not hesitate to contact this doctor. He will help you!!
Dr. Allen Kaufman is a kind, caring, world-class kidney doctor. He is devoted to all of those under his care. He took the time with me, and he was patient in answering all my questions. He is extremely thorough, quick, and tenacious, when answers need to be obtained from outside his office. His staff is also quite capable. Because they really try like nowhere else, to give individualized care, the staff may be a bit harried. But the unparalleled medical attention provided saves lives and preserves kidneys. Thank you so much, DR. KAUFMAN, Bogey, and Waldo!
