I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Kaufman. My eyes were very painful and after a few days of treatment, I was no longer in pain.

I was referred to Dr. Kaufman because my optometrist said that I may have glaucoma. The office was clean and very nice. The office staff was very friendly. The technician, Jennifer promptly took me to an exam room and performed eye pressures. Dr. Kaufman shortly entered the room and performed a very thorough examination. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kaufman was very knowledgeable. I had a corneal ulcer and he correctly treated it with antibiotics. He is also down to earth. The office staff was great too!
Dr Kaufman was very kind, patient and informative.
