“Dr. Kaufman and his staff are the absolute best.
From the first time I met Dr. Kaufman at my consultation, I knew I wanted him to perform my procedure. He took the time to explain everything to me in a manner that I could understand, answered all my questions and put my mind at ease about all the worries I had. I’m really glad I found Dr Kaufman, I love my results.”

“Dr. Kaufman is the most honest, patient & trustworthy plastic surgeon that I have ever encountered. He takes the time to explain everything and he doesn’t ‘push’ procedures on you, like many other doctors that I have previously went to. He is truly a one of a kind doctor. I would recommend him in any capacity, no matter what you are going to him for.”
