Dr. Kaufman LISTENED to me and took my concerns seriously, showed great empathy, and utilized dialogical listening skills. I switched my care to her because the lack of communication I had with my last provider left me without a feeling of trust. I feel very confident in whatever Dr. Kaufman suggests for my care because she is a fantastic communicator who understands my needs.

This was a referral to Dr. Kaufman so it was our 1st visit together. She was very friendly and helpful in explaining information about my condition and how to fix the problem I'm having.
Patient | January 30, 2018

It is too hard to get appts. with her for procedures. Her days are few in the office which makes it difficult to see her. I live out of town and hard to see her as she has a many others patients.
Patient | December 27, 2017

I chose her because she was an amazing doctor with my 29 year old paraplegic daughter. So I wanted her for my care too.
