This guy is great at prescribing pain pills. As for doing my surgery, no thanks! He told me i needed a much more extensive and dangerous surgery than i needed. Then i get to the hospital day of surgery to find out this scary little out patient hospital isnt even covered by my insurance. But i also find out its the only place he still has operating privileges. Incidentally the hospital has since closed. Lucky for me Kaufman disappeared for over a month and i was referred to a much better doctor.

I absolutely love Dr Kaufman. He has performed multiple low lumbar surgeries on me. Ranging from a 360* low lumbar to laminectomy , and disctinectomy . He makes me laugh when I am crying from pain, he answers my calls day and night. He is my doctor and my friend. A miracle worker on my spine since 2012.

I was told 3 times my insurance was accepted, only to get billed twice because it was NOT! I waited over one and one half hours in the exam room both visits! Both times I could hear conversations and much laughter outside the room. Totally unacceptable!!! Both times no one else was even in waiting room! I called the only hospital Dr.Kaufman uses to ask insurance questions. I was told they only handle accounts receivable and would not give me billing office #. Didn't pay to hear about family!

Dr Kaufman and his staff are life savers to me. Dr Kaufman takes his profession seriously. Learning new technologies if needed to help his patients. Dr Kaufman is available to his patients 24/7, that shows his dedication to the patient. I have had 3 separate surgeries, all performed by Dr Kaufman and they are a success! I followed his instructions after surgery and did the recommended therapy, even though it was painful at the time, the pain has gone away and I am able to live my life again!

Dr. Kaufman was extremely informative and helpful when I contacted him for a second opinion for potential cervical spine surgery. He spent as much time with me as I wanted to insure that I was well informed about the condition of my neck, and the choices I had for the way forward. He was able to discuss the MRI findings and implications on an elementary level and an expert level to adequately inform my family of treatment potential.
