Specialties

Dr. Thomas W Kupferer has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

sometime customer we will say...

When I go to Dr. Kupferer it is usually for manipulation of my back but sometimes when I go the next day its back to where it started.. But it seems like he doesnt understand that, and sometimes I just think he may be too busy for all his patients and being a coroner and all the things he does at once, I think he just has too much on his plate... I do like his physicians assistant she is really good.. so for her i would give a 9 out of 10... maybe Dr. Kupferer could learn a little something from her...

Not what I wanted...

Dr. Kupferer continuously spoke poorly about my primary care physician. He commented that I should not take the medicines my primary prescribed without more examination, but then gave me four shots of medicine with bothering to explain their purpose. He also left the hospital without telling anyone I was discharged or signing off on any of the papers.
