Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Kaufman was very thorough and honest during our consultation. He provided me with information on next steps that are essential for one to know before committing to plastic surgery procedures.
Was more of a psycho/analysis visit than a visit to the plastic surgeon. He recommended not to do any procedure but did not offer alternative treatment options. I was not impressed.
Very nice Doctor. He was honest with me and advised me against a surgery as I really didn't need it - it was just my mind! He is very patient and kind. Would highly recommend him to anyone. Another Dr would have been happy to book me in and do the operation but I really feel like Dr Kaufman is a good man who cares about his patients.
Dr. Kaufman was very detailed, patient and knowledgeable. His office staff was professional and efficient. I would definetly recommend his office to anyone.
professional, patient, very good job, no bruising with juvaderm, gentle, and a great sense of humor.
The atmosphere and energy was very welcoming . I feel comfortable walking in where I was greeted by staff. Dr. Kaufman made my first visit very comfortable. Dr. Kaufman answered all my questions and concerns.
Such a great doctor!
The receptionist made me feel welcomed and comfortable. She was very pleasent, knowledgable with regards to Insurance Information and proffesional at the same time. Dr. Kaufman made me feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire examination and answered all my questions and concerns by giving me every detail my procedure will entail. The facility is gorgeous and clean. Overall I was pleased with the entire visit.
Awesome doctor who gives you the right advise and not just trying to make money on patients.
Great Doctor, very courteous, took his time and wasn't rushed at all, not like a lot of Doctors do. Answered all of my questions and really liked the way he handled my concerns. Loved the staff. Very polite and knowledgeable. I recommend Dr. Kaufman to every Woman and or Man that is considering any type of procedure on their body..!
Dr.Kaufman is very nice. He spend all time I need on a consultation. Prices are reasonable. No waiting time.
While my visit with Dr. Kaufman himself was productive and insightful, I found various other aspects of the visit frustrating. I arrived for a 9:00 appointment at 8:50, and no one from the office (doctor included) arrived until 9:10. Because we started late, Dr. Kaufman begain the appointment asking me several questions I had just answered on the form, which of course he hadn't had time to read. Then when I was leaving and tried to pay, the credit card machine wasn't working, so I had to wait for the receptionist to call the other office, have them process my card, then email me the receipt. Other than speaking with the doctor himself, who seemed very knowledgable and helpful, I found the experience rather unprofessional. However, were these items to be addressed, I would have no problem recommending him in the future
He is pleasant and professional.
Very personable and easygoing. He does morning consults in his brother's dental office in Manhattan--that's where I went--so I can't comment on the quality of his "real" Brooklyn office or any actual procedures but he was very nice.
I thought that he was very personable and kind. He was was also very honest and approachable.
Honest and professional, highly recommend !
Warm, personable, direct. Dr. Kaufman took my concerns seriously, and gave me the pros and cons of every scenario. He was also honest about what he would not do and why. It was refreshing. We did meet in a dentist office, which was a little odd, but this was just a consultation after all, and at the end of it I had the information I needed, including a cost assessment.
Dr. Daniel Kaufman was thorough and honest with his answers. He didn't pressure me and he has the necessary humor to make you feel comfortable. I've already recommended him! I will definitely obtain his services when I am ready.
My visit with Dr. Daniel Kaufman has been great. He listens to your concerns, and add his own personal opinion to it without disregarding yours. Throughout my visits, he continues to show that he understands my concerns, which was important to me as surgery is a scary concept . He explains his knowledge of different types of race and culture in regards to my procedure, expertise in his line of work, and humor to lighten the mood. This showed me that I was in capable hands. I am most appreciative that Dr. Kaufman had given me his ear to listen to my concerns and make this experience more comfortable as it was my first time doing any type of surgery. His office and surgical staff have been very supportive and kind as they showed empathy throughout the visits/sessions. I would definitely recommend Dr. Daniel Kaufman.
Knowledgable, affable. A good, informative consultation.
He made me feel so comfortable. Answered all of my questions before I had a chance to ask. He was so gentle and kind I felt like I had been going to him for years.
It was great. He was personable, honest and knowledgable. I was interested in lower ab lipo. He informed me of other work I needed first (repair a hernia), and that I barely needed the lipo after that (a girl always loves THAT kind of info). I appreciate his integrity, and made me feel valued....not just quick money!

came in for botox. I've had it done before and with Dr. Kaufman I didn't see results. He was a very nice man but I won't go back.
He was very reassuring and frank with me. He actually turned me away for something he felt i did not need. Another person might have used that as an opportunity to make money.

I saw Dr. Kaufman for Botox. He was very thorough explaining the why's and wherefore's of the product and communicating what would be best for a successful outcome. Only having Botox one other time with a different doc and being disappointed I was pleased Dr. Kaufman took the time to listen to my concerns. The first time I left with red knots all over my forehead that developed into bruises.; this time with Dr. Kaufman I left with nary a knot, redness or bruising. His technique and skill are impressive. Trust him!
very professional great bedside manner and to the point.
Dr Kaufman was very informative, friendly and professional
The wait was long, but once we met with Dr. Kaufman was well worth it. He was very patience and explained everything to me...I will keep you posted if I am going ahead with the intended procedure...
I FELT SO COMFORTABLE WITH HIM & CONFIDENT THAT HE CAN GET THE JOB DONE.
