  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Best Doctor Ever!!!!

I am very sad, because I was a patient of Dr. Kaufman when he had a practice in Lancaster, CA. I have never found another Doctor like him. He is warm, compassionate, took his time with me, explained everything so I would understand him. I was in great pain and he waited after hours for my husband and I to get to his office for help. When I found out he was leaving, I was ready to pack up and follow him to Arkansas. Believe me, if the housing market would pick up, we would move in a minute. My health has gone downhill since he has left. He treated me as if he care, not like a number. When I called the office, he spoke directly to me. This does not even happen anymore. Arkansas does not even know how lucky they are. Miss you Dr. Kaufman, take care and hope to see you soon. Hope your family is well.

I read all of the other reviews, and I had to leave my own. I completely agree. Dr Kaufman is wonderful. He is one of the few that really cares. I am so sorry that he moved from California. I am seriously thinking of moving to Hot Springs

Excellent and Thorough

Ive had migranes for almost 25 years. Ive seen countless Doctors in several states, tried hundreds of medications, nothing worked. Out of desperation I went to see Dr. Kaufman, and he is the best neurologist Ive ever been to. He was very thorough and was willing to look at causes that no one else ever had. I normally would have between 1 and 5 headaches a week before seeing Dr. Kaufman. After seeing him probably 6-8 times, I have had 3 migraines in the last 2 years. I would highly recommend him.
