What People Say About Dr. Darren Kaufman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Called for my blood work results today and was told dr Kauffman has left the practice. Very disappointed that his patients weren't considered as far as being notified! Shows a real lack of concern for his patients. We seem to live in a world without dedication, consideration or loyalty. Very unprofessional but I imagine he has moved on and just doesn't care. Speaks volumes for him!!
