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 thefront 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 Igo 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, shepersonally 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 orwere in places that could become problematic and rechecks those areas at every visit. I highly recommend her.

The appointment was for my 18 year old son who was more than pleased after this initial appointment with Dr. Kaufman. "Why can't more doctors be like her and show that they truly care?" Dr. Kaufman was patient, listened to myson and obviously understood how he felt about the cyst. We highly recommend Dr. Kaufman, a professional who sincerely cares about her patients. The wait was due to a new computer system, which was fine by us as we didn't need to complete pages of paperwork. As the system moves into place, I'm confident that the wait will be reduced. We highly recommend Dr. Kaufman.
