Breast Care Specialists
David I. Kaufman, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Dr. David Kaufman began his surgical training in 1984 in New York City. Over the next five years he advanced through his residency and in 1989 he was awarded the position of the Chief Resident in Surgery at the New York Downtown Hospital. In 1990, after completing his term as Chief Surgical Resident he started his private practice on Long Island. Dr. Kaufman is a Breast Surgeon specializing in Breast Cancer, Breast Cancer Surgery and other Diseases and Surgery of the Breast. His office was originally based in Massapequa, New York and is now located in Bethpage, New York on Hempstead Turnpike across from St. Joseph Hospital.
Dr. Kaufman has chosen to specialize in the diagnosis, surgery and treatment of Breast Cancer and other conditions of the breast because proper care takes focus and diligent attention to detail. The mountain of information can be difficult to sort out, and in this new era of managed health care, women often are not given enough time and information to deal with their needs effectively and efficiently.
Every woman in the United States worries about Breast Cancer. This year, more than 203,500 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 41,000 will die from the disease. It is one of the most important women's health issues facing us today.
However, great things are happening. Using a wide variety of state of the art techniques, Dr. Kaufman is able to diagnose and treat cancers earlier, and fewer women are dying from Breast Cancer. New advances are being made every day in the diagnosis and treatment of Breast Cancer, giving us all hope for the future.
