I like this doctor a lot. I have only been to him a few times but he is really good. The girls working at the front desk are very easy to talk to.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kaufman for many years now. I would recommend him to everyone! He is straight forward and educated beyond his years. His staff is always helpful !!
in South Ozone Park, NY |
One of the most difficult men I have ever dealt with. he messed up the count twice now on my Medicine costing me extra money to get new prescriptions to get the right count of pills. He offered no assistance and not even an apology. I would avoid this doctor at all costs
