Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Kaufman saw my 5-year-old son for a consultation about symptoms he had been suffering and his large tonsils. I was charmed and impressed that he spoke directly to my son the whole time, not to me. (Obviously I would be listening!) He was level-headed and very helpful.
Ok not that great
Compared to other specialists I've seen, the treatment was the least effective for a recurring issue.
Dr. Kaufman took time and care in explaining how I need to medically proceed. Very understanding and very patient with all of my questions.
Prompt, professional, knowledgable. And a nice guy to.

Thank you Dr. Kaufman!
Very professional staff and I really liked Dr. Kaufman's demeanor and openness. I definitely think this will be a great partnership in helping to resolve my current health issue (my previous specialist retired).

I appreciated the visit with Dr. Kaufman. It was brief and he was right to the point, but friendly. There was not much of a wait as I was the first appointment of the day in his Irvine office.
We visit Dr. Kaufman a few times a year and find his office staff pleasant and efficient. Dr. Kaufman never rushes thru the appointment and answers all our questions. Great doctor!
Very nice doctor but be prepared to wait and wait and wait and wait. Standing room only waiting room with more waiting outside the office. Either the doctor moves very slowly or they are overbooked.
Long wait, but office is really nice and you are invested (or should be) in high level of care. Dr. Kaufman is the best, knows what he's doing, saying, and will make sure you walk out satisfied and relieved of any concern you had walking in with.
Dr Kaufman did a good job, and the waiting time is very short.
appointment at 2pm. saw Doctor at 2:40. Was a long wait. Doctor seemed competent, but visit was short 6 min with him wanting to get out and be done.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Kaufman. The front office was really friendly, and my intake was fast. After just a short wait, I was taken to the exam and Dr. Kaufman came in right after. He was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. I made the appointment online at 7:30 a.m. for a 9:00 a.m. appointment. Couldn't have been easier! I'm completely satisfied.
Dr Kaufman was fantastic! Office staff was very professional as well.
Very pleasant and professional. Took time to explain his diagnosis and how to proceed going forward.
This was my first visit with Dr. Kaufman and I liked him right away. He asked me questions regarding my issues and listened to what I had to say. I appreciate the doctor's ability to listen and not rush to the next patient.
Went in thinking I had an ear infection when it was really just a cerumen impaction. Dr. Kaufman was great, and my right ear never felt cleaner!
I took my son as he had busted his nose from sparing. The office staff was very professional. My son thought Dr. Kaufman was cool. He explained things to my son and what precautions he needed to take. I would highly recommend Dr. Kaufman to other parents. I was worried about my son's injury but I feel comfortable now as Dr. Kaufman took his time in explaining me and I feel my son is in good hands. Thank you Dr. Kaufman and Victoria!
Very nice and helpful, a gentleman. I would absolutely recommend him!

Dr. Kaufman was able to find the root cause of my ear ringing right away. I felt so relieved after struggling with the problem for so long. I've seen several doctors before Dr. Kaufman and none of them were able to pin point my problem.
Very personable and considerate MD. Staff is also friendly and professional.
Dr. Kaufman was quick to the point and very informative. I came in explaining my symptoms, he diagnosed me with what I figured I had, he gave me a few prescriptions to rid me of my ENT symptoms and that was that. If you don't like spending a lot of time in the doctor's office for routine/common illnesses I recommend Dr. Kaufman.
Very brief but probably appropriate as I had no problems to find or treat.
I had several questions. He answered all of them. He gave me good advice.
So far. Good
I have seen him before and was very happy with his work. Now that i have seen him again i am still very satisfied.

Has been the first of 4 doctors to give me a diagnosis. Thank you!
Very nice and professional Doctor
Very friendly doctor. One of my best experiences at a doctor's office this year!
This was my 3rd or 4th visit with Dr. Kaufman. A doctor that I work for considers him to be a very good friend, so he was recommended to me for ear pain. I would highly recommend him and will return to him if the needed arises.
He is the best
Outstanding and informative doctor. As a new patient it was nice to see he reviewed records/reports from other doctors. He was very kind, asked questions, but most importantly listened. Office staff was very nice as well.
He spent quality Time with me and was very helpful. I will continue with him for sure.
He was very knowledgeable about my ear problems and knew exactly how to take care of me. This is the Doctor you should see if you need help with your ears.

Dr. Kaufman was great, knowledgable and helpful. My wait time was 1 hour, even though there were only 3 other people in the office. Overall good experience and I would recommend Dr. Kaufman. He is great!
LIke him--I'll be back--

Very pleasant and informative.
First appointment and pleasantly surprised by every aspect--from receptionist and certainly by the Doctor. Would almost look forward to the need for a revisit, but if it occurs I'll be delighted to go!!
Very good. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Kaufman.
He spent hardly any time with me and tried to get me out as quickly as possible.
He was very informative with explaining, very patient with my other kids and very good with my daughter!
very good doc.
He's professional and smart. Diagnosed immediately. I gave him a "4" on Bedside Manner; not because he's rude or unkind but because he, like many other doctors, are in such a hurry. Location a little hard to find. Use your GPS!
Doctor Kaufman was very pleasant along with the staff. Had a good conversation while procedure was taking place. Will definately go to him again when needed.
The receptionist is very rude. Doctor Kaufman is always in rush. I often forget to ask my questions because he examined me for 3 minutes!
He was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. There was a longer wait, but I don't mind waiting for excellence.
Every comment and recommendation is true about Dr Haufman. I'm from Fort Lauderdale and got caught with a horrible ear ache, found Dr Kaufman on ZocDoc was totally impressed with his professionalism , bedside manner, he is what all Physicians should be! Outstanding !
Dr. Kaufman was extremely kind. He made me feel like I was well taken care of because of how personable he was. He actually reminded me of my dad in a sense, because he treated me as if he knew me for years and assured me that everything was going to be fine. Highly recommend him!
Very honest and professional. Definately very detailed as well.
he is a very nice Doctor I would for sure recommend him and the staff are great too
I find him to be very professional and respectful, as he makes great eye contact while he's listening directly to you. I would definitely return, and recommend his office to others.
very nice and thorough, explained things well.
Very professional. Found my problem. All went smoothly
Meeting andd talking with Dr.K gave me reassurance that I was with a caring, competent physician. Highly recommend him.
Professional, thorough, and great with my 14 year old son
he is cool, and treated well.
I thought he was very thorough in his explaination about the ear injury to my daughter. He was agressive in how she should be treated and I felt he really cared.
The front desk girl wasn't very pleasant. She sort of had a "chip on her shoulder" and wasn't very comforting. While Dr. Kaufman was nice, he sure wasn't in any hurry to get to the patient rooms. That's tough when you have to get back to work!
Very efficient and friendly. Was a nice experience.
Very informative and great bedside manner. Took care of our daughter when she was in a lot of pain and 2 other doctors had missed a diagnosis. We were very pleased.
Very thorough,friendly,accommodating,knowledgeable,finds time to explain the relationship of his findings to the parts of the body,explains the risks and benefits of treatments he recommends
Dr. Kaufman was timely, very thorough and very professional during my visit. He took the time and explained everything that was going on with my health and properly diagnosed me. I left his office feeling confident that the treatment prescribed will help me, and I was right. I feel much better after just a few days from my visit. I highly recommend Dr. Kaufman to everyone. He is the best! Thank you Dr. Kaufman
