5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Dr Kaufman is the Best! - Thousand Oaks, CA

I had Mohs surgery done by Dr. Kaufman recently, and am amazed at his surgical skill and expertise. I know that the relative amount of pain from any type of surgery is usually a reflection of surgical skill, and even though I had to have a fairly large incision (in my opinion) I felt almost no pain! I am sure I would have had a lot of pain had I gone to any doctor with less skill. Not only...

Great Experience - Thousand Oaks, CA

Dr. Kaufman was recommended by my dermatologist. Dr. Kaufman, who specializes in Mohs surgery, treated me for skin cancer on the tip of my nose. I was terrified of being disfigured, but three months later, I look completely normal. Dr. Kaufman did an amazing job on me. He isn't warm and fuzzy, but he's intelligent, he listens and he cares. His staff is friendly and very professional. My experience at the Center for Dermatology Care was a very good one. I couldn't recommend Dr. Kaufman any more enthusiastically.

Excellent "Moh's Procedure Outcome - Thousand Oaks, CA

I researched my physician diligently, and was willing to travel throughout the Southern California area to see the best. Because I was dealing with a basal cell carcinoma on my face, it was a priority to not only remove the cancer growth, but hopefully have the best reconstruction, in order to avoid a unsightly scar. Dr. Kaufman fit the criteria I wanted. His education and experience...

Dr. Kaufman is Amazing! - Thousand Oaks, CA

I was reffered by Dr. Rehder in Camarillo. The office staff is very accommodating, The nurses made me feel as if I were part of the family, and Dr. Kaufman is off the charts, he explained in detail every facet of the procedure and did a great job with very little pain and discomfort. I would definately reccommend him anyone who needed a MOHS surgery.

Mohs Surgery - Thousand Oaks, CA

I had a nodular basal cell carcinoma right in the middle of my forehead. A good surgeon was a must. Dr. Kaufman came highly recommended and it's true. The man is brilliant at what he does. 1 month later the scar is barely noticeable. Dr. Kaufman and his staff could not be more professional, courteous, kind and informative. I will definitely be back I'm sure, since I'm a fair skinned...

Dr. Kaufman and MOHS - Thousand Oaks, CA

My dermatologist performed a biopsy on an area near my right eye. It turned out to be positive and I was referred to Dr. Kaufman. The drive to Dr. Kaufman is 45 minutes for me, but well worth it. The office is state of the art. The operating room appears to be equipped for any and everything. The entire facility is spotless. The staff is more than accommodating and the Dr. Kaufman is highly...

Small Squamous Cell Cancer - Thousand Oaks, CA

After being diagnosed with a small skin cancer (squamous cell type), I went to Dr. Kaufman for it's removal. He, and his entire staff, were personable, caring, and efficient. He did a great job, and three months later the scar on my forehead is hardly visible. I recommend Dr. Kaufman for this type of care.

Mohs and Reconstruction, melanoma in situ, Great Results!! - Thousand Oaks, CA

I was in denial about this changing freckle. It was a brown spot I'd had for 8 years since my last child was born. It was lasered, but came back with a vengeance. My vanity had caused me to ignore common sense, I didn't want it biopsied. I didn't want a scar on my face. Funny, when I finally came to my senses, it had doubled in size. I saw the dermatologist, he insisted to take a minimal...

4 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Juvederm Injections

Little uncomfortable with topical only. But bareable. Results were well worth it. I will do it again. This was the first time I ever injected anything into my face and was very skeptical. I didn't bruse just a little swollen for the first couple hours. Go to someone experienced. Even if its a little more expensive I'm a big believer in you get what you pay for.
