I really liked Dr Kaufman. He listened closely to what my problem was. He performed a procedure the same day instead of making me come back. I'm very happy Dr Kaufman was my zocdoc choice.

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.

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 also love the fact that Dr.Kaufman has two offices - one very close to my home and one very close to my office. Perfect.

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.

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.

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 highlyrecommend 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!
