I have been seeing Dr Kaufman for years, ever since he began practicing here in the Conejo. He is a fantastic Doctor and is really good at his job. He has the qualities of a perfectionist- which, in my opinion, is a good thing. He takes his job seriously, does his best work and expects the same from his staff and his patients. He is also extremely thorough & has a dry sense of humor. I appreciate his no nonsense approach and attention to detail. I trust him with my life.

One of the worst physician experiences I have ever had. Dr. Kaufman is one of the most chauvinistic and rude human beings I have ever met. I literally heard him yelling at his women staff like they were dogs. He spent more time looking at my chest than at my medical conditions. In the middle of my surgery he got angry and threw a medical instrument across the room and yelled at one of his nurses. I will never be going back after this traumatic experience.
