I found Dr. Kaufman to be a compassionate , caring person with astute diagnostic abilities. He prides himself with the desire to stay in touch with his patients during treatment and their concerns, by Email or portal ,daily if needed. If 5 stars represent the best qualities of a physician, I would award 6.

Bedside manner was extremely improper, and definitely NOT trauma informed. Assumed I would be fine with an immediate invasive exam with NO prior info about what it would entail, and without even asking (just "now a nurse will do XYZ"). Recommended a course of treatment that doesn't have scientific backing to show that it works (FODMAP) and managed to make my visit about my (mid-journey) weight and not digestion. Not competent for eating disorder patients.
