No moral support to the patients. Always in hurry!
Highland Park, NJ |
Do not recommend. We made an appointment specifically with Dr Kaufman for my older son and younger daughter but when we got to the office they pushed us off to a much less experienced doctor for one child and a Physician Assistant for the other! They said Dr. Kaufman never sees a new patient on their first visit, but they lied because on a previous visit with my third child we did see Dr. Kaufman on our first visit, on that visit they were unable to take my 7 year old's blood pressure!

Dr. Kaufman is a very compassionate and knowledgeable doctor. I have a number of health issues and every specialist that he has sent me to have been tops in their fields. They have even remarked that "oh Dr. Kaufman he wants to know everything." If you are ever in the hospital, the staff knows that they had better keep a good eye on you because Dr. Kaufman will be checking. There isn't a more dedicated Dr. for his patients.
My family and I have been patients of Dr Kaufmans for over 18 years. He is very dedicated and extremely knowledgable. He will go over and beyond for his patients. He's compassionate and has the utmost respect for his patients. Dr. Kaufman is well respected in the medical field and the community. Without hesitation I would recommend him.
You can never get an appointment with him, just his PA's
