I truly appreciated Dr. Kaufman's time and patience with me. I was very pleased that he not only took the time to explain his answers to my questions, he also did the same for all of my husbands questions. He certainly did not rush us into making any decisions.

Right from my first meeting with Dr. Kauffman I found him to be a man who really wants a patient to improve their quality of life. He is a caring man and very knowledgable about what he does. Dr. Kauffman is a truly gifted surgeon in my book. It feels wonderful to be able to walk without pain in my foot.

I saw Dr. Kaufman for the first time this year. I needed a second opinion and he was very thorough with the exam and explained the procedure to me so I could make my decision. He performed the surgery and I’m so happy with the results. Thank you Dr Kaufman!

I told the office I was coming to have the nail on my right big toe checked, as it was pulling away from the nail bed due to a fungal infection. Even so, they said "Dr. Kaufman wants ii x-rayed before he sees you." I see no reason for that except to make money. He was efficient and removed the toe nail easily. He explained my options clearly for getting rid of the fungus. He said the nail would be sent out to be sure it was a fungus and not a yeast infection, then he would prescribe medication. Despite a follow-up call to his office, it's been three week and I have yet to get the script. He was polite, but not personable.
