Dr Kaufman is very impatient. His is understaffed hence he was answering the phone while doing everything else. I asked him for a copy of my son's results and he was so upset. 1/10 for me. Will not return

The entire visit his back was turned to me. Whenever the front desk phone rang he would leave to answer the phone. He spent more time at the front desk that the room we were in. He even stopped to havea detailed conversation before turning to the room. Unacceptable. Won't return.

It was good. The wait time was long because he didn’t have a receptionist so he was doing both jobs.

I feel that he did an excellent job with my daughter. I decided to schedule an appt with myself. I also recommended my older daughter to him. I think his bedside manner could have been a little better.

Dr. Kaufman wasn't there, I met with the other doctor on-site who was very polite, patient and thorough. They didn't have a receptionist, so the wait is very long because she was doing the check-ins and observing the patients. Very clean office, easy parking and great service!

My original appointment was for 12 pm, but the receptionist called and asked if I could come in at 11 am instead. Despite asking me to move my time, I still waited to be seen until after 12 pm - overan hour wait time in total and no apology was offered for my wasted time. Bedside manner needs a lot of work - he didn't make eye contact with me until the appointment was almost over and frequently interrupted me while I was answering his questions. Not impressed.

Somehow 5 patients were scheduled for a 7pm appointment. I wasn't seen until almost 930pm! Doctor's bedside manner was ok - I felt a bit rushed when asking my questions however it was understandable he was irritated from the overbooking of appointments.

The wait was due to me being new patient, with paperwork and everything else needed.

Very nice guy. Genuinely cares about the patient. I went in for allergy testing and he ended up catching something else that was going on with my health and I'm very grateful for that. I gave a lower score for thewait time because I got the the office one time for my appointment and the office wasn't even open and I had to wait a while.

This was my first time visiting Dr. Kaufman so I don't how how reliable my rating will be. He was very professional and seemed concerned for my well being. He was also happy to run tests of all different kinds inorder to help me nail down what I'm allergic to. There were allergy tests I did right away and then some that require blood work and I'll be seeing him next week.
