Patient reviews for Dr. David Kaufman
Knows his stuff about chronic UTIs- gave me options other urologists didn't. I recommend a visit if you're experiencing chronic UTI and have run out of answers from other doctors.
Got to the office 15 min early for a 12:40 appt and wasn't seen by the doctor until 1:10. The receptionists were dismissive. The doc prescribed me antibiotics which were not called into my pharmacy. I won't be back
Extremely knowledgeable and communicative. Left me feeling very confident about my diagnosis and a way forward.
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.
Excellent doctor, very thorough, kind knowledgeable and gentle . Highly recommend!
He's a great doctor and really cares about the patient's well being!
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.
Pleasant doctor who took his time to explain everything. Definitely recommended.
Dr. Kaufman was exceptional. Great at understanding my situation, honest and thoughtful in his recommendation, detailed in his description of next steps. Steered me away from an expensive procedure.
Knowledgeable man, very happy overall.
Very sharp guy. Easy to talk to about sensitive issues. I was immediately comfortable with him.
Nice guy! Straightforward. Comfortable.
Friendly guy, even more enthusiastic about fishing than I am
One of the most helpful doctors hands down
I was immediately at ease and comfortable in his presence. He has a friendly manner, and not at all intimidating or arrogant like some doctors I have seen.
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
Dr. Kaufman seemed to be extremely knowledgable, very thoughtful and very thorough. I've already passed along his information.
Good doctor. Would recommend to friends.
This was my initial visit with my urologist and I felt comfortable right away.
Very straightforward and blunt. Not necessarily a bad thing but it may shock some people.
Highly recommended very professional ,he take the time with you
professional, knowledgeable and straight forward.
I felt uncomfortable, wouldn't recommend
highly skilled. excellent bedside manner.
I’ve been a patient of Dr David Kaufman for nearly 5 years. One of the better MD’s I’ve come across. Terrific!
after seeing a terrible dr, i found dr. kaufman on zocdoc. he is as good as the reviews! make your appointment, you won’t be sorry.
Overall very satisfied very professional examination.
This doc is the real deal. Was impressed by the other reviews and he was actually better than the high praise. Very impressed.
Was very friendly and didn,t just spend time like every other doctor i,ve seen in the past! He is actually take the time and listen to every question i,ve asked and then explained everything i wanted to know. Highly recommend Dr. David Kaufman! Absolutely best !
Dr Kaufman was Very professional and explained everything in detail! Staff was very polite, and offices were clean! Highly recommend!!!
Really funny and smart doc. Had the questions down pat.
Hands down the absolute best out there. Lets be honest, It is never fun to see a urologist. But Dr. Kaufman is smart, patient and makes it as easy as can be.
Great doctor. Informative, straight up and right to the point as long as your upfront and honest with him. (My recommendation)
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.
Personable and approachable, and answered all my questions.
Awesome doctor but very busy because of it. Had to wait 40 mins to see doctor.
Very friendly and knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable and was able to diagnose a lingering issue within minutes of the appointment.
The Doctor was very knowledgeable and left me feeling that no matter what was happening with me it could be and would be resolved.
Dr Kaufman is an excellent communicator. He is direct, sympathetic and clearly articulates diagnosis and treatment. I have been a patient of Dr Kaufman for half a dozen years, and will continue to be for years to come. I highly recommend.
Dr. Kaufman is very kind and he answers to all my questions
Dr. Kaufman was super friendly, helpful and nice, so was his staff. I wish every doctor I see was like him.
Very professional and efficient.
He's just great! So good at getting back to my harassing 50 questions emails. So funny and of course really helpful. Handles the dramatics well :)
Treatment and manner was excellent. Wait time wasn't too bad.
Great Doctor, he makes you feel relaxed and really knows what he is talking about.
I love dr. Kaufman. He was very nice, funny, and had great medical knowledge and advice. I feel hopeful about my chronic cystitis for the first time in 3 years!
Very disorganized. Expert at milking insurance, via numerous "consultations" before any actual work is done. The procedure i had done he at least admitted it was his FIRST time. It did not go well.
Dr. Kaufman is fantastic - he's a wonderful doctor and I'm so glad I found him. He's kind and caring and really takes the time to understand what you're going through and put a plan in place to help you. He is the only urologist I will ever trust.
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.
great doctor easy to speak to
