I have been treated by Dr. Kaufmann for several years and have found her attentive, available, caring and professional. Remarkable doctor. Also I am very impressed with the staff at the Schweiger Dermatology office. This is true for both the front desk and the assistants in the patient area. The front desk staff was attentive and respectful of the patients that I saw coming in and out. Showed great professionalism

I don't feel that she took the time to really "LISTEN" to me and address my issues with compassion or look for possible causes to my issues. She rushed through everything. She often stated the obvious which is not what I go to a medical professional for. I did not get to present all of my questions. She frequently talked at the same time as I did so it seemed to me she did not hear all of what I was saying. After waiting almost 3 months for my appointment, much to my dismay, I will have to seek advice from another dermatologist.

Dr. Kaufmann is a gem! My husband and I go to her for regular checkups, and she's always friendly, patient, and thorough. She takes the time to explain the reasons for any clinical procedures, and, when lab processing is needed, she personally calls us with the results and next steps. It's wonderful to have a dermatologist we can count on who makes us feel important and well cared for.

I think Dr Kaufman is a terrific doctor - patient, listens and responds answering all my questions. She's cautious but not an alarmist and has a wonderful gentle manner about her. She's removed a few things that were highly suspicious or were in places that could become problematic and rechecks those areas at every visit. I highly recommend her.
