Specialties

Dr. Stephen E Kaufman Sr has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Four Stars

I saw Dr. Kaufman after having months of stomach bloating, pain and discomfort. After some questions and a full examination he was thorough and said we are trying some changes. He is kind, experienced and listens. He was proactive giving me a packet to read with a special diet and what not to drink and eat to help your over all digestive health. He put me on a probiotic and a stomach medicine prilosec. He said call me in 4 weeks and let me know how you are feeling. I called him and he returned my call in 24 hours, spoke to me about how I am feeling. He is very caring and compassionate to what you are going through. Made more recommendations and then said we are checking back with each other in another 4 weeks. I am getting ready to call him in a week. I can say, I can now eat and overall feel so much better with my stomach. He is an old time doctor in a new world but is up to speed on everything. I could not get into my regular gastro guy in the practice and he saw me rather quickly. I was so pleased with how he handled me because when I went in I was feeling lousy. I feel a whole lot better and feel that he cares how my progress is going. I am not sure exactly what my diagnosis is but know with Dr. Kaufman he will keep following me and we will tackle this together. Worth seeing Dr. Kaufman.
