Always professional and reassuring.
I have been fortunate to know Dr. Kaufmann for over 24 years. He is the best dermatologist period. He is knowledgable, professional, expert, patient, and caring. You are in great hands!
He was prompt and listened attentively. He answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable with him.
i had a very good visit with Dr Kaufman.H elistened to my concerns and then checked the areas in question.
Amazing!! I was literally in & out within 15 minutes and I received even more help than I hoped for. Thank you!
Have been a patient for over 20 years and find him to be very knowledge in his field. My husband and I travel from NJ to see him. Went to another Dr. years ago and Dr. Kaufman had to correct what the other Dr. failed to do. He has a great bedside manor and will listen to you and treat the little things as well. He is very easy to talk to and makes you feel at ease. He has a wonderful Wife and sometimes she is in the office and she to is a gem. We appreciate and love them both. Hopefully you will also.
Instantly diagnosed my condition and prescribed my prescription and was out instantly.
He is the best dermatologist ever! I got in an out with four issues in fewer than 15 minutes. I don't know how he did it. But I'm very happy with him, & I will not hesitate to go back. He's also very positive man. A pleasure to work with.
Dr. Kaufmann was very approachable and professional. I felt very comfortable speaking to him about my concerns.
I was able to get an appointment (via ZocDoc) with Dr. Kaufmann the very same day. My ZocDoc forms were all that the office needed so I did not have to take time to fill out additional forms when I arrived. I was immediately taken to an exam room and seen by Dr. Kaufmann. Dr. Kaufmann quickly assessed my situation and offered appropriate and thorough treatment. I could not have been more pleased with the entire experience with Dr. Kaufmann and his office!
A good doctor, keeps my skin health in check.
Dr Kaufmann has a soothing reassuring manner of dealing with his patients. He is informed and readily answers questions.

zoc doc review. quick, knowledgeable and very helpful
Incredibly efficient and knowledgeable. Dr Kaufman took his time and answered all my questions. The office is organized and spotless. Couldn't ask for more.
What a wonderful experience! I either went on an extremely slow day or they are just that good. Literally zero wait time, the doctor came right in, diagnosed, prescribed and I was out the door within 10 minutes of arriving. Overall, a great experience, and professional doctor. Would definitely go back.
Short and sweet.
He is the best doctor ever
Shortest doctor visit of my life. No wait, and got right to the point. Very professional. Thank you!!
Once again, Dr. Mark delivers! With a Family History of Melanoma, any time there is something that appears on my skin that is questionable in color or size (which is usually about once a year) I don't hesitate to have it checked out. Dr. Mark is ALWAYS accessible, Professional and thorough!!There are many different types of Dermatologists in NYC, but Dr. Mark Kaufmann is a "No Nonsense" yet very knowledgeable and reassuring Dermatologist.
Very professional .
The best and very kind
I love this guy. He has sound advice for all my dermotological needs
Dr. Kaufmann was great. He was extremely professional as well as friendly. I was seen right away, and he addressed all of my concerns. I will definitely keep going back to him.
Personable and informative offering balanced options. Fully satisfied with results.
Very professional. Very knowledgeable.
Very pleasant doctor visit. He answered my questions and ordered prescriptions from my pharmacy online. He gave me a sample of a new medication to try.
He's efficient while being completely thorough and careful in his examination and assessment. Speaks the truth and finds solutions.
Loved him. his staff was friendly yet efficient. He took notes, was warm, professional, diagnosed quickly, was clear on what it was and what I had to do. didn't try to "upsell" me products or more services (some doctors do). would go back in a heartbeat and feel lucky to have him on my medical team. A regular guy.
The first time I have seen this doctor but honestly he is very professional and a good listener and very accurate with his findings and solving and he is very nice I highly recommend this doctor
I appreciate how straightforward Dr Kaufmann is. I'm fairly squeamish and he's also good at reassuring me. I can confidently say that I receive excellent care.
He listened to my concerns and was able to address the problem.
Dr. Kaufman is neither rude nor mean, but he definitely does not warm up the room. He is very quick and to the point, no small talk. There weren't any other patients so I didn't see the rush. The overall atmosphere did not leave room for questions. On one hand I understand that as a physician it can be very busy, but on the other hand, as a patient I want to feel safe and comfortable with my doctor. I was in and out of the office in 10 minutes. I probably spoke to Dr. Kaufman for 5.
An excellent doctor who inspires confidence.
Very thorough exam, clear explanations, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable.
Couldn't have asked for a better visit. Prompt, informative, congenial.

Very efficient in treating me. Very satisfied with my results.

Doctor Kaufmann's assistant is friendly and his office is clean. When I saw Doctor Kaufmann, he quickly diagnosed my three issues and then outlined next steps. I will continue seeing him as my dermatologist.
Visit was quick. The doctor was pleasant.
Dr. Kaufman is a consummate professional and at the top of his specialty. He treated me with great care performing a little surgical procedure on my foot. I thought I would be unable to do any walking for a couple of days, but I was able to walk home from his clinic with no problem. He has excellent bedside manner, and very pleasant demeanor.
It was a very positive experience.
Dr. Kaufmann was very easy going, efficient, and explained things in layman's terms. Highly recommended.
Visit lasted less than 10 minutes. He recommended I see my regular doctor to draw my blood since he did not. He told me to come back once I get tested to find out why I was experiencing hair loss. I really thought he could help me.
Worked well with my transition to a new city and a new dermatologist.
Dr. Kauffman was great very detailed with my treatment plan. Great beside manners and quick service. Highly recommend him to anyone struggling with acne.
Dr Kaufmann conducted a skin screening for me and the experience was great! He met me right away and answered all my questions clearly. I would definitely come again next time!
He was very quick and efficient I was in and out within 10 minutes. I felt like my concerns were listened to with care. Will definitely be returning
Very professional and accurate. Saw me right away, wait was under 1 minute.
He's very to the point without being rude and although his office is small I've never waited long to be seen. He also has no problem answering questions about concerns that I might have.
very thorough visit and kind personalized approach
Reception was very straightforward and nice. I was directed into one of the patient rooms and I saw Dr. Kaufmann right on time within 5 mins of being there! Dr. Kaufmann was very honest and straightforward as well. He knew exactly how to work with my insurance carrier. I was pleased overall with this appointment. I hope to schedule another appointment with him.
Friendly, informative and thorough.
Very patient, friendly and well-versed.
Straight forward and informative. A nice guy too. I definitely recommend him.
Wonderful doctor with patient, kind, calm, reassuring bedside manner. Takes the time to listen carefully. Didn't make me feel rushed at all. Seems very knowledgeable and thorough. Staff is polite and efficient, and the office is neat and orderly, if a little cramped. Would not hesitate to recommend or visit again.
Dr. Kaufmann answered all our questions and gave us solutions . We were seen exactly at the time of the appointment .
The visit was for my 1 year old daughter. The dr. Was great and the visit went well. I will use him again.
A very knowledgeable, thorough and helpful Doctor. I would highly recommend him to anybody.
I had previously been seeing another dermatologist in the area and I didn't have a great experience - she seemed to be more interested in cosmetic dermatology and was constantly trying to hawk me products. In comparison Dr. Kaufmann was awesome! He was very calm, informative, answered all of my questions and took the time to explain things to me. I waited all of five minutes for my appointment and the receptionist was very pleasant. Will definitely be using him as my dermatologist from now on.
He knows what to recommend and it works.
Fast and got straight to the point with my condition, was also really quick to find a pharmacy were they stocked my medication easily.
The best dermatologist I've ever been to. He gets right to the treatment and wastes no time. I've seen results to his treatment within the first day. Didn't even sit in the waiting area, waited 5 minutes for the assistant to get my paper work done and he saw me right after. His bedside manner is excellent, nothing negative to say about him.
Dr. Kaufmann was very professional and saw me personally. I was very happy with the quality of care I was provided at his office.
Excellent physician. Would highly recommend.
Very comfortable and professional!
Each experience has been thorough. I appreciated the time and care that he and his staff have provided me each time I've visited.
Very nice with both of my tween girls who had two different needs. Highly recommend.
Dr. Kaufman was very thorough and answered all of my questions. Unfortunately, I find too often that dermatologists are dismissing and never look at you. I didn't find that to be the case at all.
Dr Kaufmann is very professional and patient. I'm very happy with my consultation and will return for sure.
He is genuinely a nice and friendly person. He was really informative and helpful with my case. I could highly recommend him.
Dr. Mark Kaufmann is a very nice intelligent person. he treats his staff really good and me as a patient does also. I'm buying a cream because of a sample staff has given me for my face. Very good cream.
short, sweet and to the point, awesome and loved scheduling on line!
Dr. Kaufmann was great! Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Thank you Doc!
as always dr. kaufman was on time and vey caring about my good welfare
Competent and professional
The visit was super quick, I was in for something not that serious. The doctor saw me almost right away and gave me samples of the medication he suggested. I wish I had known beforehand the office only takes cash. It makes it a bit of a hassle for me to submit the payments to FSA to get reimbursement.
Dr. Kaufmann is an excellent doctor who is kind and caring.
He was very nice, professional and informative as to how to proceed with my specific condition.
The doctor didn't even spend five minutes with me.. He avoided all my concerns it's a horrible feeling...
Office is always on top of their job.
Wonderful. Dr. Kaufman is very caring and professional. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kaufmann is a true professional. He responds to your questions and is very knowledgeable. I am lucky to have Dr. Kaufmann as my doctor.
In and out. Always respect a knowledgeable doctor.
No wait time, easy to schedule, took my insurance without any hassle. Took a thorough history, and made a diagnosis with appropriate treatment. I am a physician and I will recommend him to my patients
I don't have a dermo in the city, was lucky to get an appointment right away with him (and easily). He was super nice, helped me out as I was in an emergency situation. Gave me some samples and great staff. Felt very comfortable.
I saw Dr. Kauffman for the removal of two pilar cysts that I had on my scalp. I walked into the office on my second visit (first was a consultation) and was seen immediately. This was the first time I have not had to wait a while to be seen by a medical professional which was very refreshing. The whole procedure took about an hour and was painless. Dr. Kauffman was super nice and professional and made me feel very comfortable. He walked me through the procedure step by step as he was performing it which I found very nice-most doctors these days are just in and out with no bedside manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Kauffman to anyone who needs an excellent dermatologist who knows his stuff well and is also friendly. Definitely recommend this guy all the way.
Dr. Kaufman is very knowledgeable, very professional. He was very through with explaining to my teen daughter about her acne. I would recommend him for any skin care issues for all ages; He's absolutely WONDERFUL!!!!
No wait, listened to my concerns
I have a new dermatologist. He was awesome!
Dr Kaufmann is the consummate professional, with a great bed side manner. His surgical procedures are absolutely painless, and once finished, it’s hard to imagine you ever had a problem to begin with.
Wonderful simply wonderful. Great doctor and staff
I loved Dr. Kaufmann. He was really personable and was immediately helpful and resolved my issue. In addition, he offered me a few options. I'll definitely be back.
Visit was very quick. Did not look closely at my skin to determine what condition i had... just assumed based on the location.
I was in and out very quickly, which I love! They had all my information ready for me ahead of time, and I was seen in under 10 minutes. My only feedback would be that it felt a bit rushed, and I had to ask a lot of questions to get a thorough response. The actual examination was very brief, and even though the diagnosis was pretty quick to asses, and obvious to Dr. Kaufman, I would have appreciated a few more questions and a more thorough interaction overall.
He was very understanding and friendly. Loved his professionalism. I felt very confident with is diagnose.
Dr. Kaufmann was very knowledgeable and respectful. Great bedside manner. Great derm training. I felt that I was in good hands!
ok not the greatest
Great experience. Professional and really patient with my questions.
Dr. Kaufmann has great bedside manners and is very efficient while thorough. He has been spot on with his assessments and really consciousness of ensuring you have the proper coverage and not overpaying for prescriptions which I was really impressed by. Great doctor - I would highly recommend him to my friends and family!
Receptionist was friendly and very helpful with my questions about my coverage. My appointment was on time. Dr. K warmly greeted me, and asked first what concerns I had before giving me my exam. The exam was therough and not rushed. All concerns/questions were answered to my satisfaction. I would definitely return and highly recommend Dr. Kaufman
Very professional - very quick - only thing I would have any issue with was that I should have been asked if I wanted/needed a full body check as a routine dermatological visit. I went in for something specific and my issue was completely addressed. Very positive experience for the most part and I would definitely recommend Dr. Kaufman. Appointment process was also a very positive experience.
This was my first visit to Dr Kaufman. He was terrific. Staff was too. I will continue to see him and happily recommend Dr. Kaufmann.
Attentive, professional, and knowledgable
Dr. Kaufmann is very professional, kind and patient and has a good sense of humor. Having seen him for a few years now, I do trust him overall.
Great doctor, quick friendly, and actually cares about patients.
He is a very nice Doctor and person. I will let anyone know to go see him. his medicine applications are very well explained and and explains all to you about what ever the problem is. I recommended someone to him already and she was happy with him. My friend said that he was honest with her.
I was very satisfied with the visit and look forward if need be, for future visits.
Dr Kaufmann is my favorite doctor. He is thorough, understanding and kind and has a great sense of humor.
It was timely, to the point, staff was as friendly and helpful as Dr. Kaufmann. It was a routine checkup but he also explained something I had in simple terms and gave me tips to prevent it. Would highly recommend.
Helpful, very nice man.
The doctor was nice but did not have time to do the mole removal he said I needed in the first visit. This required two appointments, which meant paying twice and taking the time off from work. He should schedule less than 15 min per patient in order to complete the patient's visit in one day.
We were taken in to a room right away... Waited only but 5 minutes for the doctor as my information was processed... He came in and knew exactly that my son was dealing with eczema.. Very nice, knowledgeable and helpful.. Definitely found our new dermatologist...
I feel like what he told me i could have thought about that , and what he told me didn't help me at all.
Very helpful. Pleasant manner.
Dr Kaufmann is an awesome and very professional Doctor
Very professional and helpful. We will be glad to go back to see him when needed!
I did not have to wait. He explained the medical issue and treated it immediately with no pain.
Please tell, quick, efficient
Very good I highly recommend
I have been seeing Dr. Kaufman for almost 20 years. He is one of the best in dermatology! I highly recommend to anyone with any kind of skin problem, big or small.
I was seen right away. Dr. Kaufmann gave me a thorough exam and gave me a helpful explanation of what I should be looking for when I examine my skin for potentially dangerous growths.
I was able to see Dr. Kaufmann quickly. He took a look at everything that was bothering and immediately figured out what to prescribe. Dr. Kaufmann was friendly as well.
Very friendly and provides great consultation
Dr. Kaufmann is very professional and straightforward and gives a clear explanation of his diagnosis and assessment.
I really liked and appreciated this doctor. He listened and he treated me with respect. He has a warm demeanor and seems very knowledgeable.
when I described my problems, he not only listened but was able to recommend a solution or possible solution to my condition. He was most helpful and very kind to me. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my family or friends.
Very professional and polite. Would recommend to anyone!
He is just always so nice, respectful, and wonderful!
Dr Kaufmann was very caring and attentive, answered all of my question. Definetly a loyal patient from now on.
Great visit. He answered all of my questions.
Dr. Mark Kaufmann is the consummate professional, very personable, knowledgeable,with an excellent bedside manner!
super easy and fast visit
Dr. Kaufmann is a wonderful, professional and caring physician. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dermatologist. I am always early for appointments and he has seen me as soon as I got there on both visits.
Dr. Kaufmann is very informative and very professional. He had great insights about all my questions. His staff are also very courteous and friendly.
Very knowledgeable, quick, and efficient.
First time patient. Very fast and efficient. Told me my diagnosis and gave me options. Very attentive. Thank you. Consider me a loyal patient from now on!
He showed a minimal interest in my condition. However, the treatment he recommended is working for which I am grateful. His prescription was vague and required several of mine and pharmacist's calls to correct it. Eventually never did it but just sent the same prescription over again without changes.
Very professional, skilled and kind.
Dr. Kaufmann has a very pleasant demeanor. He listened to my concerns and gave me great recommendations.
Doctor Kaufmann and his staff were very professional, courteous and informative. There was no wait time at all. I couldn't have had a better experience.
he was running about 15 minutes late, but once he saw me, he was very professional. I appreciate the detail with which he explained my condition to me, and how we reviewed the alternatives before selecting one to follow.
Was really pleasure to meet him
Dr. Mark Kaufmann was professional, thorough with his examination, and took the time to educate me about what to look out for. He also didn't push cosmetic services which is a first.
I have seen Dr. Kaufmann a few times for different issues. There has never been a wait time, and he has always been pleasant and efficient. I would definitely go back to him if I had another issue.
Quick and efficient will address all concerns
Dr. Kaufman is a wonderful doctor: smart and knowledgeable, with a steady hand and gentle manner.
Dr. Kaufman had an excellent bedside manner. He carefully listened to my daughter (19yo) and the concerns she had and then more than adequately addressed them. I would recommend him to others and actually plan on setting up an appointment for myself.
Informative and easy going doctor with helpful staff.
i have beena patient of dr. kaufman for more than 15 years. i have the gteatest respect for his services and his opinions on my health.
Genuinely listens, and very helpful, answered all my questions and no wait time!
It was great he told me what was wrong and prescribed me something for it it was great
Hmmm, well immediately he struck me like all the other dermatologist that I've seen. Give you samples, then expect you to pay out of pocket for his products. NO NO! You must first listen to the patient and not try to burden them with ridiculous products which are just like OTC and serve no purpose in your visit. He basically told me what I already knew. He listened after a while but heads up, speak up and interrupt if you have to, YOU ARE THE PATIENT, you cannot heal yourself the doctor has the power to do that so therefore he must trust what YOU tell him.
He''s a good guy and a good doctor. JIm and Ophelia
Very nice man, well educated, very understanding and helpful. Definitely recommend. The whole staff is kind and considerate.
Dr. Kaufmann is pleasant and efficient. I have seen him a few times and have never had to wait. I had a couple of moles removed and he did a great job. I would definitely go back to him.
I love going to see him He's changed my life I've taken my boyfriend my daughter and they all r happy with him he's great
Always pleasant to visit Dr. Kauffmans office. Consistently short wait times. Professional service.
Very nice, clear about his explanation on the problem, and efficient in curing.
No wait time, very diligent, great doctor.
It was to the point.
He is great! Very professional and friendly.
Excellent physician with great bedside manner. He was very patient and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend Dr.Kaufmann to friends and family for any dermatological concerns.
As always, he is professional, he listens and he is very knowledgable. The best dermatologist in NYC!
While he seems like a pleasant man upon first meeting with a good bedside manner (his office assistants are very lovely) - I quickly realized that his only interest is selling products. When I presented him with problems I had been having with my skin, I was neither examined nor questioned further on my medical history and he was all too quick to offer various products to try. I returned for a second visit planning to be more adamant about an exam or blood work - this time, he kept me waiting as I heard him speaking to a product rep in his adjacent office. Again, no exam - just more products to "try" and see if they worked. I honestly felt like a guinea pig/lab experiment. For a man with his credentials and history, it was appalling the way in which he did this so transparently.
Nice guy - very competent, pleasant. Highly recommend.
Dr. Kaufman is gentle and professional..He provides information along with treatment. It is comfortable to consult with him. I have been very satisfied with my care.
Pretty straightforward guy but when I asked him what my skin type was he asked me why I wanted to know. You're a dermatologist, what is so uncommon about me asking my skin type? Very odd. The icing on top: I was met with a condescending attitude from his secretary. I had to cancel previous appointments due to other health issues which arose. She essentially chastised me for canceling more than once (the horror!) saying I was "one of those patients" and it is costing them to actually "lose money" when I cancel. Lose money? Give me a damn break. I'm sorry, I didn't realize I was at a spa and not a dermatologist's office. And again, rather condescendingly, she said it's not a good way to start a relationship with the doctor. That's interesting because you as a "medical professional" shouldn't speak to patients that way if you want to start a relationship with a potential patient. You're here to do me a service - not a favor. You have no clue what's going on in people's lives to chastise them for canceling an appointment more than once - which I have a right to do. I suggest this office take heed of their approach to patients. Needless to say I don't care to "start a relationship" with a doctor's office that exudes a vibe of being mightier than thou. In a word: crappy.
Overall a great experience. All of my concerns were addressed.
Very Knowledgable and helpful. Understood my issue and gave me the appropriate treatment for my condition (hopefully it'll work). Great Bedside manner answered all my questions. Receptionist was nice and polite. I showed up for my appointment an hour early and it wasn't a problem was seen within 15 minutes of my arrival.
The wait time was very short. Dr. Kaufman was very nice and to the point. Excellent bedside manner and great personality-puts you right at ease.
Dr. Kaufmann was extremely professional, respectful, made time to answer my questions and treated my condition immediately. Clean office and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend him.
Excellent doctor .......
He seen like a good doctor that really care about his patients, been there two times and I will keep him as our family dermatologist. My kids loved him and that's a A+
Great experience every time.
Great doctor and friendly staff with no wait!
Super cool. My appointment was 1:30 but I was there before the time so by 1:32 I was out. However, it all depends what's your condition.
I tough he was a really nice doctor, staff was really nice and didn't have to wait at all. Dr. Kaufmann look at my son skin and deliver his diagnostic right after. But most important my kids felt confortable so that's a good sign. Definetly will follow up with him. I think I just found my dermatologist
Professional and personable. He is 'a find' .
Location: perfect! Office: very neat and clean. Cozy!! Staff: the secretary was very nice. She treated me individually in the sense that she was ready for me when I arrived. I wasn't just another patient with an appointment but [insert your name]. I appreciated that. Doctor: just kind and warm. I was certainly impressed. Dr Kaufman did not act arrogantly. He calmly and thoroughly answered all my questions. And with a smile! Overall: 5+ stars!
This is the second time I've seen Dr. Kaufmann, and won't be the last. I was a little early, but he saw me right away. The receptionist took my insurance card and did all the paperwork, while I was in the appointment, which was nice. He has a good bedside manor, and is very friendly. He took the time to explain things.
I have been seeing Dr. Kaufman for 20 years. He does my yearly skin cancer screen and has dealt with a number of minor conditions. His efforts have been helpful, and he hasn't done me any harm I know of. I recommend him.
Wonderful, kind, honest and professional. Have been going to Dr. Kaufman for over 15 years - highly recommend him!!!
Was great! Excellent dr. Gives enough time to explain your problems.
Dr. Kaufmann had was kind, took the time to do a through skin screen, as well as answer questions about what to look for in the future. I was put in an exam room right away and was seen very shortly after that. I will certainly be returning for future screenings. Thank you, Dr. Kaufmann!
I came in for an annual skin exam and I had a great experience: First, the assistant was very nice and friendly. Then, I waited less than 5 minutes before seing the doctor. The consultation was short about 15 minutes and I did not feel rushed: the doctor gave me good explanations of what he was doing during the exam and also I was able to ask all my questions. It was my first visit and I plan to keep Dr Kaufmann as my dermatologist going forward.
Virtually 0 wait, actually saw me early and was very efficient and helpful. Would highly recommend.
Friendly and professional
I thought he was wonderful. A really great guy with a very knowledgable and lovely manner about him. The other staff in the office were lovely too.
So far so good.
Good doctor who knows what he is doing.
Everyone who I interacted with in the office was polite and friendly - receptionist was extremely personable and offered me a bunch of nice free lotion / cream samples. Did not have to wait at all - simply filled out form, changed and doctor was in to see me. Efficient, kind and thorough. He was able to quickly assess what was wrong and fix it, explaining the level of pain I would feel and what I could expect the recovery to be like. Great experience, highly recommend!
Great Doctor! The staff was pleasant and efficient. Dr. Kaufmann was thorough and very friendly.
So refreshing to have an experience at a doctors office like this. I'm use to loonnnnnng waits and lazy practitioners and this was the complete opposite. The lady who checked me in couldn't have been nicer and I as seen right away. The doctor was knowledgeable and was able to diagnose something the others could not. Very positive experience
it is always a pleasure to see dr. kaufman, he is both professional , friendly , concerned and knows his skin
I recommend Mark without reservation
Went in, no wait. The visit was excellent, the doctor was very patient addressing my needs, and also took plenty of time to explain everything to me and answer any questions I had. Since the visit I have had a couple questions and he always replied to me promptly via phone or email
Dr. Kaufman is very personable and knowledgeable. He explained all treatment options in a way I can easily understand. I will recommend Dr. Kaufman to my friends and family.
Dr. Kaufmann & his staff was professional with me during my visits. I felt comfortable during my visit & procedures. I will highly recommend him to my friends, family & co workers.
Knowledgable, and very kind. I'll be back!
Dr.Kaufmann is an excellent doctor. I will always go back to him and have recommended him to several friends and family.
Great doctor, would highly recommend. Very professional, upfront and honest. Not out to rip you off. He wasn't able to help me with my particular case of acne, but recommended me to another doctor that could instead of wasting time and money. Very knowledgeable and offers every possible option and multiple alternatives.
terrific. Very professional, friendly and excellent care.
very warm, his secretery was very sweet. I came in way too early but they took me in with out a problem . Dr Kaufman was wonderful. I would recommend him to my friends n family for sure.
As always was a quick and pleasant visit.
Dr. Kaufman is the absolute best. A winning combination of knowledge and caring.
This is one of the most pleasant doctor's visits I've ever had. The office was clean and cozy, the staff was warm and inviting, and the visit was easy and informative. I would highly recommend Dr. Kaufmann to anyone.
Wasn't to Happy with the receptionist. She was beyond unprofessional. Not only was she on her cell phone have a very private conversation in public. But, the exam room wasn't prepped. there was still a used gown in the room and the paper wasn't changed on the exam bed. just horrible. The doctor was okay not thrilled don't want to go back. Not warm or really paying attention.
Dr. Kaufmann was very patient with my questions and clearly explained his answers. I was seen right away, which is rare for a doctor's appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Kaufmann!
This was my second time visiting with Dr. Kaufman. Each time he was knowledgeable and was able to assess myself and my children almost immediately. The nurse was a pleasure to confer with as well. She is really good at supporting parents who have teenagers who don't yet have time management skills mastered. I definitely recommend this practice!
The wait time was longer than my actual appointment. I saw Dr. Kaufmann he was very nice but when I told him what was wrong, he looked at my skin, did not tell me what was wrong but he prescribed medicine and told me if it does not clear up come back in 2 weeks all within 10 minutes. Sorry but I will NEVER go back to this office.
Very quick. Probably easiest visit I've ever had!
Quick, easy, efficient, and a nice guy!
I will definitely see him again. His exam was very thorough. Unlike other Dermatologists, he used a scope to better examine potential issues. He gave thoughtful responses to my questions. His conclusions were definitive and reassuring. He has a great bedside manner. His asst was very efficient and professional.
Dr. Kaufmann is fantastic, cannot say enough great things about him!! Highly recommend!!
Excelent experienced physician. Great team. Would recommend. Felt like I was truly being listened to.
Dr. Kaufmann is consistently professional, friendly and I am always very glad I went to see him. ; Good advice, he has many possible solutions to problems and gives his patients utmost respect.
Excellent. I would recommend! He is friendly, respectable, and welcomes his patient with a great smile.
He was very nice also gave samples for my son's skin
I liked the visit. The layout of the office was confusing, and his receptionist was on the phone negotiating insurance questions. She handed me a robe, but didn't tell me where to wait, or when Dr. K would see me. Not a huge issue, but I could imagine that others would feel uncomfortable.
He was very nice and patient. I did not feel rushed and he have me excellent information.
He's very good.
Dr. Kaufman is an excellent physician with a very calming demeanor. The office offers many services such as laser hair removal and facials.
Went there for acne. He knows he's stuff got rid of my acne in 2 weeks
It was great! Live this doctor. Very pleasant and quick. Would recommend to everyone.
Dr. Kaufmann is very professional, genuinely nice, knowledgable and efficient. I definitely recommend him.
doctor and staff are always courteous and professional... always a pleasant experience. There's simply no competition Dr. Kaufman and his team are the best.
He explained in real English what he saw. He was thorough in his exam, and his office manager Wanda is kind, professional, and warm. Not many doctors accept my insurance, and I am lucky to have had such a doctor treat me.
Excellent experience. Came half an hour early, took me right away. Performed procedure with due care. Office staff attentive. Highly recommend.
Had an irregular mole in an embarrassing place, but I felt very comfortable with Dr. Kaufmann's care. He was very professional and understanding.
Very friendly staff. Dr. Kaufman knows what he's talking about and does so with confidence without being pushy. As a patient, I had a great experience.
I came here based on reviews and had a very pleasant experience. I had a mole removed in under 30 seconds, painless with hardly any scar. I was very pleased with my experience and would go back!
No wait. Pleasant and professional manner. Addressed my concerns and questions clearly and directly. Very pleased with my visit.
doctor Kaufmann is wonderful. He takes a really good care of his patients! Very experienced and knowledgable.
Very friendly and helpful doctor, very friendly receptionist. I would highly recommend Dr. Kaufmann.
Everyone was great there it was fast
Dr. Kaufmann was really great. He was super nice and friendly and funny and made me feel right at home. All i all a great experience.
I was highly satisfied with my initial visit. Dr. Kaufmann answered all questions I had, he explained the cause of my situation and what was the best treatment plan. The CSR was very professional and friendly. Overall best medical office visit experience
Excellent doctor. Dr. Kaufmann and his assistant were very professional. The office is immaculate. I was very pleased with the appt.
He is great - always on time!
A good experience. Quick and thorough. I'd certainly recommend Dr. Kaufmann.
Everything is great except the receptionist is very, very very rude
I liked him. I went in for adult acne issues, got seen right away. I would have liked him to ask me a little more questions to maybe try to find out what the underlying cause of my specific acne outbreak could be, but maybe he's trying trial and error first with topical meds. Besides that one issue, he's good though, doesn't try to force antibiotics on you if you don't want to take them and finds an alternative safer route. Def will keep him as my derm for now.
Dr. Kaufman is the kind of doctor you wish every doctor was like.
I really appreciate Dr. Kaufman . I had another pretty well known NYC dermatologist ;wont mention names that i had seen previous and had an old prescription that i need filled again. I had called Dr.Kaufman's office and to the rescue the request was filled in minutes. My old derm i found out from my pharmacy didnt even bother to call it in and their receptionist just called me back to tell me to just get the otc even though my insurance covers it. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Kaufman's bedside manner and professionalism. Thank you Dr. Kaufman
Very professional. Easy to make an appt !!
Dr. Kaufmann was great. He was very thorough, thoughtful, and caring. He also did not rush the appointment, which was great!
Good visit w doc , very courteous and attentive to my needs.
Very knowledgeable, professional and courteous.
i had to push for extra information - it wasnt offered
Terrific. Procedures were done swiftly and with reassurance, which was very much appreciated. Dr. Kaufmann is highly recommended.
Amazing doctor. Very kind and sympathetic towards the uninsured. You can tell he's a doctor because he cares about people. My visit was fairly affordable out of pocket compared to other doctors. Will be returning.
I would reccomend Dr. Kaufmann to anyone. I wish he were my doctor for everything!
He was so great! Professional, sweet and an absolutely great doctor!
It was very fast and efficient.
He was very nice and explained everything I needed to hear thanks
Very helpful and good bedside manner
Very professional and helpful.
It was great, very professional and took the time to talk and understand my problems. Didn't feel rushed. He sent my prescription to a pharmacy electronically, and the pharmacy will be shipping me my medications! very convenient
Very professional and very knowledgeable. Would absolutely recommend!
I really liked the time the doctor took to explain . The treatment given the last time worked.
Great - he's professional, caring and efficient.
very good, straightforward and efficient, explained things clearly.
I liked it so far, I have yet to see if the treatment works. The doctor made everything really easy for us and was really kind to my 10 year old.
He's incredibly profesional, warm, and knowledgable. Top notch and among the best medical doctors I've gone to.
Awesome he got right down to the point
Finding doctors in the city who are wheelchair friendly is a difficult task, Dr. Kaufmann was nice enough to put out a ramp to I could enter the building and spoke with me as if I was a human being. Some doctors look down at you but can't say that about him, very polite and professional.
He was great and seemed very knowledgeable. Found a brief history of what acne treatments I have tried and what my experiences have been and then chose a plan that fit best for me. He even contacted the pharmacy to have the prescription filled right away and dropped off right at my apartment! It was a great experience.. Better than any other dermatologist I have visited. Fingers crossed that my skin will start to clear up!
Thought I'd get a real thorough skin screening (head to toe) because I had a few moles that had newly developed on my back. The doctor just told me I was healthy and that I shouldn't have to worry about anything. Office is definitely oriented towards cosmetic dermatology, so maybe I picked the wrong doctor to go to address my concerns.
I have no idea how to tell if someone is a good doctor or not but he was a nice a guy, very punctual and helpful. No complaints from my end.
He is a fine doctor
Awesome. I showed up early and got seen early, with no wait time!
I was very satisfied with my visit - Dr. Kaufmann answered all of my questions patiently and provided excellent care. Thank you!
Very professional and welcoming.
There was virtually no waiting. The entire process at the office--check-in, doctor visit, payment--went very efficiently. He quickly understood my situation and found a solution. He also offered some education. This was a seamless visit.
Very friendly and through and knowledgeable.
Dr.Kaufmann is a great dermatologist he helped treat and monitor my acne with ease. He also helped diagnose my daughters skin allergies, he is very understanding and patient. I would highly recommend Dr.Kaufmann for anyone struggling with any skin problems.
Very good going back to see him.
Very informative and clear!!
I was seen right away!
Great doctor! The secretary I think her name was Wanda,was a pleasant young lady. I would recommend you to visit Dr.Kauffman's office.
Soft spoken, knowledgeable, not hurried. Excellent visit.
I explained my issue to Dr.Kaufmann & he was able to find a solution right away
Very professional, provided great insight and advice and friendly.
very quick, knew my issue on the spot. great!
An awesome visit! After many years at a nearby Dermatologist whom I loved no longer accepted my insurance I was forced to search for a new one. I came across Dr. Kaufmann on Zocdoc. I must admit I was skeptical being that every single on of the previous reviews were amazing, my thoughts were this is too good to be true. I went ahead and made an appointment through zocdoc, filled out all the necessary forms online. When I arrived all that was asked of me was a copy of my insurance card and a signature with in 2 mins I was seen by Dr. Kaufmann. He provided great bedside manner & effective treatment. I plan to frequent Dr. K's office and encourage all others to do so as well. you will not be disappointed.
Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic!!
Mr. Kaufmann is worth it!
I was I am very satisfy with the dr and the secretary thanks
My visit was very pleasant, Dr. Kaufmann was very nice and considerate about my medical needs.The receptionist was a sweetheart, registration was very quick. I would absolutely recommend Dr.Kaufmann for anyone seeking dermatological help.
very professional and make u comfortable.
Strange as it sounds, visiting Dr. Kaufmann was a very nice experience, despite the fact that the purpose of the appointment was to find out whether or not I had developed another melanoma!
Could not have been faster, I didn't wait a second. And did not feel rushed either, highly recommend!
Dr Kaufmann was so professional , he was super nice and very easy to talk to. They acctualy have a Laser Cente there as well so it's very comfortable and nice , his wife is so nice and friendly and made me feel very welcomed!
Good Doctor knew right away what my problem was and treated it on the spot
That was by far one of the easiest, fastest, most pleasant doctor visits ever. Dr. Kaufmann is personable, warm, efficient and really good at just being present. He was reassuring about my concerns, thorough in his examination, and explained everything he was doing. The office is clean and everybody I saw there seemed happy to be there, employees and other patients alike. I got to the appointment 45 minutes early, and they saw me right away--no waiting in waiting rooms or seeing nurses first and sitting in an exam room forever. From the time I walked in to the time I saw the doctor...3 minutes tops. I made an appointment to go back to have some moles removed and look forward to seeing dr Kaufmann and his staff again. Highly recommended!
Very easy to speak with. Def will go back.
Well organized Dr. Will recommend to anyone!
Dr. Kaufmann was great! No wait and he answered all of my questions and took some real time to discuss my medical history and the issue at hand.
Very professional, knowledgeable of medical issue and extremely pleasant. Answered all my question as well. Very comfortable setting.
Doctor is kind of creepy. Full physical check up for skin cancer was unsatisfactory, doctor felt "uncomfortable" and that's the last thing you need!
Geat doctor! Easy to speak with and extremely honest.
He took his time, did not rush even tho I was a little late for my appoinment, I would definitely recommend him to others. Great Dermatologist, he seemed like he cared.
Hey Was Great I Will Go See Him Again If I have To
He was kind and professional! He made my teenage son feel I think he is a great doctor!
He was very professional and honest. I would use him as my dermatologist.
Very patient doctor. Felt comfortable at the appointment.
Dr Kaufman has a wonderful calm manner. My kids love him.
I've been before and Dr. Kaufmann is no nonsense (in a positive way), very practical and extremely helpful. He gets right to the heart of the problem and works on a solution!
As always I was seen immediately - This is a well run office.
He is great!
I really enjoyed my visit to Dr Kaufmann. Very non-threatening, I went to see him for a very simple mole removal procedure, and I was surprised when he simply removed my moles. I went back a second time, and he did again without complaint, asking for money or attempting to sell me anything. A very pleasant surprise.
Never been to a dermatologist before and this experience was certainly a good one. He and his staff were very nice. They took me right away.
I was seen right away. He made me feel very comfortable. He was very patient and discussed all of my questions pertaining to both skin care and cosmetics.
Great doctor!!! Dr. Kaufman was Really professional, friendly and answered all my questions. Happy I found him!
Wonderful visit. Very knowledgrable and nice.
This was my first visit to a dermatologist in years and despite numerous issues, my visit was smooth and handled quite professionally.
My appointment with Dr Kaufmann went well. The office is a bit tiny and awkward, but the secretary was helpful, and Dr. Kaufmann was very professional and suggested many different treatment possibilities for my acne. He also prescribed medications which had no co-pay, which is always a plus!
Dr. Kaufmann took his time. Very satisfying.
Dr Kaufmann was thorough, pleasant & very professional.
Highly recommended, extremely professional, and understanding the Best Dermatologist I have came across. I feel I like I am in good hands .
Dr Kaufmann was very pantient and calmed. He answered all my questions he took the time to listen to all my concerns. Very knowledgeable. The office is not big and you are seen at the same time as your appointment which is so refreshing if you been to other derm offices you know how long you have to wait. Overall great experience. Highly recommended .
Literally no wait time, did not push any unnecessary treatments or products, got an honest opinion. Highly recommended
Dr. K was thorough, efficient, and answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. If only all physicians could be like him.

Always very quick, succinct, and professional. Absolutely no complaints.
It was a great experience. I was really nervous about the appointment, but he really made me feel at ease. Very caring and gentle. Will definitely recommend.
Great as every time.
Clean and precise, albeit a bit dry - which I would tend to like years ago when first exposed to healthcare in US but got "spoiled" by an ubiquitous over-friendly attention since then =)
Very quick, friendly and helpful.
Took as much time as I needed to answer my questions. Seemed very knowledgeable. Good bedside manner. Friendly staff. Would highly recommend
He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Unfortunately for me, I have pityriasis rosea which doesn't have any treatment so I really can't rate him on that.
Overall good experience. Short wait time and good service!
Great experience as always. Very friendly, takes his time with patient, no waiting time.
Very friendly and right to the point. Great Doctor!!

Dr. Kaufmann is courteous and professional; efficient without seeming rushed. As a 30-something woman I feel comfortable going to him .
Dr. Kaufmann was quick, highly professional and as far as I'm concerned, did his job incredibly well. His staff was pleasant and helpful; I would return to and recommend Dr. Kaufmann, no questions asked.
Knowledgeable, friendly, would recommend
Very knowledgable, explained everything thoroughly, and was patient with my many questions. I would recommend him to friends and family.
He was personable, professional, warm and reassuring. He has a sense of humor. He is a great find!
Lukewarm guy. Not bad, not great. Didn't really spent more than 5 minutes with me, gave me a very general prescription that did nothing. Was not a return patient.
Dr. Kaufmann's staff was very nice. I had a very short wait before I saw him, less than 30 minutes. My appointment was at 3:45 and I was in and out by 4:30. He was very attentive and listened to what I had to say. He suggested medications based on my feedback about what I liked and didn't like about taking medicine. He also tried to minimize my payments by giving me a card so that I wouldn't have to pay a co-pay on two of my medications. He was a little bit brief, but he gave me everything I needed. It was a great visit!
Was my second visit to him. Have been impressed with him and he has a great office staff. Highly from recommend him.
I saw dr mark today and I can't say much as I'm on a long treatment for acne and fungus beneath my toe nail.. Will definitely update this feedback after a month or two of my treatment..
Very pleasant, easy experience. He was thorough and professional.
I felt a bit rushed. I guess my problem wasn't severe but there was also no one else waiting after me. I was also early for my appointment so I felt that the doctor could have taken his time with me and asked me more questions.
He is very knowledgeable and helpful. The office is efficiently run.
Really really nice and helpful
Saw me recognized the problem ,prescribed medicine,called in the prescription and I was done.
Very knowledgeable and confident without being arrogant. Just what I want in a doctor.
No waiting time,very friendly, very professional.Can be recommened at any time
Dr. Kaufmann was great. Very professional, made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions.
Great doctor! Patient and a great listener :)
Great experience. True to appointment times and a kind staff. I plan on going again.
Dr. Kaufmann was very nice and professional. He saw me immediately and took care of my annoying problem (excision of scalp cysts) with great care and skill. I'm glad I was able to get an appointment so quickly and have my dermatological issues resolved in no time at all. I highly recommend Dr. Kaufmann.

Very professional and well organized, no waiting times, very friendly. Can be highly recommended.
I felt Dr. Kaufmann knew what he was doing and handled my exam in a professional manner.
Absolutely loved Dr. Kaufmann! Unlike most doctors, Dr. Kaufmann spent the time and didn't rush me out of the room. Great guy!
My visit with Dr. Kaufmann was quick, easy and less paperwork. The doctor was very knowledgable by just looking at my skin to know what the issue was. I was pleased with the results and will visit this doctors office again.
Dr. Kaufmann is an awesome Derm! I had a questionable mole and he had it removed within 20 minutes of me setting foot in the office. He is very professional and clean. I didn't have any wait time, and he answered all my questions. Highly recommended!
good listener. Detail oriented in evaluation of skin problems.
He was great! Smart, kind, patient and thorough. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
AWESOME! Best Dermatologist on the Upper East SIde. Knowledgeable, Compassionate, Results Driven and certainly deserves a feature in the New York Magazine's Best Doctors issue!
I saw Dr. Kaufmann to remove 3 (benign) moles that had bothered me for a while. The visit itself was right on time, his office staff was friendly and helpful, and Dr. Kaufmann was very easy to speak with. Most importantly, everything went fine with the removals and almost two years later all is well. I'm not in need of a routine dermatologist, but when I do need to see a derm again, it will be Dr. Kaufmann.
He is friendly and answer all the questions that I have.
Nice guy, easy spirit, very professional.
He was very professional and informative
Dr Kaufmann is extremely professional, knowledgeable and efficient. I highly recommend him.
