Dr. Kaufman was extremely kind and seemed to really take her time to ensure my new prescription was accurate. I have been wearing glasses for years and have never had such a wonderful experience with all the staff I came into contact with. Dr. Kaufman appears to really love her job which translates through her bedside manner. As long as I wear glasses, I'll be going to Dr. Kaufman.

Great office with top notch technology, wonderful staff, and Dr. Kaufman is always fantastic -- knowledgable and thorough. She, and her staff, are patient and take their time with you to understand just what you need. At my last visit, itwas time for new frames and lenses and the staff could not have been better, even with my indecisiveness. Great place and definitely recommend.

Dr. Kaufman is knowledgeable and pleasant. She had plenty of patience for the many questions I wanted to ask. The office staff was helpful and charming, from the front desk to the frames advisor, who really knows how to pick justthe right frame for your face. The office seemed well run and appointments were on time. I will definitely return.

It was a great visit. They give you an option to have a retinal image taken instead of dilating your eyes which was extremely helpful and made the whole experience better to not have to feel incapacitated for the rest ofthe day. The image is super clear and turned up something that could potentially save my vision. I was very impressed with the staff and the whole office.
