What Client's Are Saying

"Recently, I visited Ireland specifically to climb Croagh Patrick, Ireland's Holy Mountain, located in Murrisk, Co. Mayo, about 5 miles from the city of Westport, Co. Mayo, Ireland. I did not know if I could make the climb but I wanted to do it for my 80th birthday. I knew I needed training, effective training, proper training. I contacted Dr. Ken Kaufman. I had previous successful experience with Dr. Kaufman for a neck injury; also he was recommended to me by my surgeon, Dr. Scofiled, who operated on both my shoulders. I signed up with Dr. Kaufman for a 10 week, 3 times per week program and treatment. It was arduous, difficult, but rewarding and successful. Consequently, I was in great physical shape, the best I have been in many, many years. I was able to complete the climb the day after my 80th birthday. I am so grateful to Dr. Kaufman and his daughter, Beth, who assisted. I could not have done it without their professional knowledge, help and direction."
