I've had to go through multiple urologists over the course of the past year, many of them highly rated on Zocdoc, but I finally found a doctor who is caring, understands what am I going through, and doesn't make me feel like I have no hope. Plus, basically no wait. Would definitely recommend Dr. Kaufman over any of the other urologists you might be considering in NYC.

Fantastic doctor. If you have urinary issues or pain, go to him. End of question. Went to three doctors in a week all who were supposed to be amaszing and he was by far the best. Listened to me concerns fully, took time for me / didn’t rush me, and was incredibly thorough and empathetic.

Dr Kaufman is a very good doctor. He does not give you the filling he is in a rush and you are a patient like another one. He is listening to his patient and he provides clear explanation to ensure you understand completely. I also appreciate the fact he record his report on his computer and send it directly to the refering practician which is a real saving of time as well as ensure you will not lost the paper

Kaufman is a powerhouse of knowledge and experience. There were two stages to my treatment, the first was diagnosis and the second was the treatment. My condition was complex, and where other doctors we restrictive in their set of working tools, Kaufman had a greater willingness to work with me to achieve accurste diagnostics and greater wealth of possible treatment options due to his wealth of experience. Attentive, largely knowledgeable, and extremely experienced. He will be my urology recommendation going forward.

Dr. Kaufman was completely dismissive of my condition and symptoms. When providing my history of symptoms he frequently interrupted me, did not allow me to provide a full history or list of symptoms, and did not invest any thought or time into me as an individual patient. Truly disappointing since this was a referral made by a physician I trust and amid many positive reviews. The only positive was a somewhat open door policy on coming in without an appointment if symptoms persisted or worsened to give a urine sample, which at least shows concern and a medical acuity in timely testing and diagnosis.
