Dr. Kaufman has proven to be an expert in his field and has gained my trust through and through. I feel extremely lucky to have had Dr. Kaufman treat me for the conditions I've come across.

Was in the ER on sunday afternoon, the following morning i called and was able to see the physician for my injury. I was extremely impressed with the ER, PA and staff experience, and also with the care provider and his resident. The quick care i received over that period was a first ! Thank You !

good care

Provider was knowledgeable about my condition and was concerned that there may be a related condition as well. Explained the condition and remedy for the condition that would be done during that visit. Would have liked to have had information on what to do later after the procedure was completed to do the right actions to help the procedure be successful - apply heat or cold or do nothing, numbing medication was in the injection so to be aware of that for the next few hours and was normal, immobilize, etc.
