He's a fabulous dentist. Compassionate, competent, gentle and his work is impeccable - I'm so glad I found him because, unfortunately for me, I'll be spending lots of time in his chair in the next several months.

Zev is the man with the "Golden Hands". My former dentist pointed to Zev on my first day of dental school as we watched Zev treat an emergency and he said "There's the kid with the Golden Hands". It was truethen, and it's true now, except there's an additional 23 years of learning and practice in those hands.

Dr. Kaufman was one of the most pleasant doctor's I've had the pleasure to meet. I went to see him for a consultation after I researched several Prosthodontists. He was extremely thorough in his assessment, discussing options, etc., and neveronce did I feel rushed. I felt concerned on his behalf because he was spending so much time with me! Additionally, he knew I was "shopping" around and he never once pressured me to use his services. He had integrity and that's hard to find in physicians these days. The only thing that's holding me back from committing to using Dr. Kaufman is the cost - he's not cheap, but to be fair, he's the best Prosthodontist I've met with by far. Other Prothodontists have quoted me half or 2/3rds of the cost that he will charge, but again, he's the best I've met with thus far. I've been saving up for a while to get crowns and have my teeth restored, but don't have the full amount that would be needed for my treatment if I were to go with him. Regardless of my final decision, I would recommend everyone to go with him 100%.
