My Mom had early stage of lung cancer at her age of 86. Dr. Kaufman cured my Mom's illness with minimal invasive procedure approach. The procedure was very successful and effective. Many thanks to Dr. Kaufman.

Dr.Kaufman is one of the nicest and knowledgable doctors I have ever met. He went into great detail at my first consultation and explained everything on my MRI. He Is what every doctors should aspire to. He shows great respect for his patients and clearly knows how to make you feel comfortable when discussing such delicate diagnoses. I would rate him 10 stars.

Terrible experience. Didn't listen to me and din't take the time to review my medical record. Also, promised to follow-up with me but never did even when I left several messages with his office staff
