Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kaufman "Patient care is complex.  My job is to help guide patients, teach and learn from them to assist in making big decisions.  Healthcare can be a very challenging area to decipher.  Who to trust, which opinions matter.  Honing in on what matters, and how to get the best care requires bedside manner and open communication."

Dr. K is AMAZING. I wanted a doctor that would not only support me but give me REAL information. He did both! He is beyond amazing and I don’t think I would have had the same outcome if it wasn’t for him! I just adore him so much!!!!! Whoever is under his care, you won’t be disappointed!
