I am so astonished at my results of my surgery I want to leave another review. If I could have a trillion dollars or have a lung that works I'd take the lung, of course. A lung functioning is priceless, there is no amount of money worth a lung. I feel like the luckiest person on earth after being operated on by Dr Kaufman. One of my lungs went from not functioning, due to a paralyzed diaphragm, to functioning because Dr Kaufman actually took a nerve from my leg and put it into my neck.

Dr is kind could give more info in apts.Scheduler Heather barged into the exam room interrupted the doctor and the patient was not dressed. this was horrible! no privacy! She is not a doctor not a nurse, just an office worker, she should be nowhere near the exam rooms. Heather blamed other staff for her mistakes.The doctor needs to be aware and change things in his own office instead of staff deleting comments.Hard enoungh going to a Dr and thendealing with privacy concerns. would not recommend.

From the consultation to the actual day of surgery, dr Kauffman made me feel at ease. He explained every option and answered all of my questions. The surgery itself was easy and not as painful as expected (just some mild discomfort) and the best part - I can breathe again! Will recommend him to any and everyone experiencing breathing issues or unhappy with the appearance of their nose. Thank you dr Kauffman!

I would tell family and friend to go to Dr,M Kaufman he talks to you ,listen, and lets you know what going to happen in details. The staff and nurses don't leave your side. They are a wonderful staff they all work great together.

When making decisions regarding your health and well being, your choice of Doctor should be tantamount. None so important as regarding the very emotional decision of choosing a facial plastic surgeon. I am 19 months post face-lift by Dr Matthew Kaufman of The Plastic Surgery Center and sadly, this has become the greatest regret of my life. Perhaps, if I had done more research, or had taken more time looking for personal recommendations, I could have enjoyed a much more acceptable result. I
We understand the emotional decision in choosing a facial plastic surgeon. We regret to hear that your result was not your desired outcome. We encourage you to contact the office to discuss available options with the hopes of you achieving the acceptable result you seek. We look forward to hearing from you and wish you well. Warm Regards, The Plastic Surgery Center

Wonderful experience. He explained everything to me and my daughter. His work was exemplary. My daughter had a breast reduction. She was only 15 and results were amazing. We never knew she could smile so much. Even her scars have all but disappeared and it's only been 2 months.

After discovering that after shoulder surgery the nerve block I was given paralyzed my Phrenic nerve to my diaphragm and that there was no way to fix my breathing issues...(only one lung was working correctly) I found Dr Kaufman thru the Internet. I am 6 months post surgery and breathing 100 percent better.

Without a consultation or any tests, was informed that due to my age and onset of problem I would not be accepted as a patient. It appears that being old is a disease according to Dr. Kaufman
