Dr. Kaufman is one of the most knowledgeable, caring, dedicated, conscientious, professional and positive doctor I have ever been a patient of. I will forever be greatful to him and the team of doctors he carefully chose to remove cancer in my body that was like finding a needle in a haystack and he saved my life. His staff is also very accommodating and professional. I will never hesitate to refer him to anyone for I am certain that he will do his utmost best to care for them like he did for me

I was referred to Dr. Kaufman by St. Peter's Breast Care Center after being diagnosed with breast cancer. I found Dr. Kaufman and his staff to be very thoughtful and caring. He is an excellent listener and I felt he really cared about me and my family. He explained my diagnosis and answered all my questions. He is honest and straight forward without being an alarmist. My cancer was successfully removed and I am very satisfied with the results of surgery. I would return to him again if needed.

My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. A biopsy was performed, then a second biopsy after some confusion. Dr. Kaufman straightened out the confusion. He was able to put us completely at ease assuring us he had things under control. He performed a very successful surgery for which we are grateful beyond what words can express. I believe he really understood that this was my wife's life in his hands. We appreciated greatly his no nonsense approach, and his professionalism. Thank You! Thank You!

I met Dr. Kaufman very soon after receiving my breast cancer diagnosis. I felt overloaded and overwhelmed. Dr. Kaufman sat down with my husband and me and asked me about myself. He treated me like a human being, not as a cancer patient. Dr. Kaufman agreed to work with my ENT to coordinate surgery (possible thyroid cancer) so I wouldn't have to go through two separate anesthesia and recovery periods. His staff was wonderful. He is tremendously talented and smart. Today I am cancer free.

I was very impressed with Dr Kaufman. When you hear the word cancer you think the worst. My first appointment with him he put my mind at ease. When I left his office that day I had a more positive attitude. I knew I was in good hands and was going to be ok. After removing the breast cancer he did reconstructive surgery . He made me look better than I have in years. He and all his staff were very compassionate. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs any kind of breast surgery.

If you are looking for a good plastic surgeon, look no further because you have found your man, one of the best around! if I could, I'd give him 20 stars if I could !

That's a fine line and it is walked by Professionals who are confident in their knowledge and Practice. Skilled diagnostics coupled with a Doc who will come out to waiting room to get his own patient and a consummate professional staff to walk you thru the process. When your in need of excellence, call Dr. Kaufman.

Dr. Kaufman repaired a tendon that I accidentally severed. Because of his excellence in surgery I am now able to move and use my left thumb as I could before the accident! I give him two thumbs up!!!!!
Schenectady, NY |
I would highly recommend Dr. Kaufman. He was extremely comprehensive and thoughtful in determining a course of treatment designed for my particular case. He took time to explain my diagnosis and what my surgery and recovery would entail. In addition, he listened to and answered my many questions so I was able to make an informed decision. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Kaufman and believe the Capital District is extremely fortunate to have such a high caliber surgeon in our area.
in New York, NY |
He is a very intelligent, caring and a fantastic surgeon. Always awailable and always with a positive attitude. He takes extra care and he thought carefully about the treatment he was designing for me. He also interacted closely with the radiologist and oncologist to come up with the best procedure for my surgery. He is very accommodating and took time in making sure I understood how my surgery was going to be done. He is great.
