Dr. Kaufman is the rare combination of genius and kindness. He is a brilliant neurologist,a full professor who trains other doctors, yet is incredibly humble and gentle. You will rarely find another doctor in his league; he is truly a gem.

Dr. Kaufman was pivotal in saving my eyesight. I will be grateful to him forever. He helped put together a team of doctors to help me after I had been diagnosed with a brain tumor that was also creating visual problems. I am so glad I was referred to him.
