5 out of 5 stars Lumpectomy

Best Breast Dr. in town!

I had a great experience with Dr. Kaufman. Dr. Kaufman was extremely professional. The first time I met D.r Kaufman he was very serious, maybe too serious. I'm used to a more down to earth Dr. This made me a little nervous so I researched Dr. Kaufman. Everyone I spoke to all said the same thing, "he's the best in his field"! That's what I wanted to hear! I had numerous painful lumps removed...

5 out of 5 stars Lumpectomy

I would recommend Dr. Kaufman to anyone who requires the type of surgery I needed.

This person saved my life. I was, as one may expect, extremely anxious over my diagnosis of having breast cancer. My husband and I consulted other doctors before seeing Dr. Kaufman. The difference was incredible. His demeanor is very professional, yet personable in a unique way. He conveyed both expertise and a sincere interest in curing me. His calming manner inspired a confidence that caused...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

A+ Surgeon

Dr. Kaufman helped give me my life back by providing me with the highest quality breast cancer surgery. From the beginning, his communication was very clear, easy to understand, and allowed me to make the best-informed decisions regarding my health. Throughout the whole process (surgery and follow up appointments), he was compassionate, caring, and listened to my concerns. Not only was he...

I couldn't be happier with the outcome! - Albany, NY

What a year it's been! In March I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer. I went to see Dr. Kaufman and he changed my life. Not only did he do the lumpectomy, he reshaped my breasts. The job he did is incredible! I am a 54 year old woman who had a significant weight loss. My breasts were large and deflated. Now they are perky! I had to go through cancer to get my self confidence back.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great experience

I had a removal of a lump and a breast augmentation done by Dr. Kaufman. Excellent bedside manner. Felt very comfortable discussing what I did and did not want. He took the time to listen to all of my questions and answered them thoroughly.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Dr Kaufman is a gifted surgeon.

Dr Kaufman made me immediately feel comfortable and safe. He is a brilliant surgeon that does not have the phrase "good enough" in his vocabulary....his work is his passion. His recommendation for my breast cancer was a lumpectomy. During the surgeries he had to remove a large portion of my breast and he managed to artfully reconstruct my breast to look "normal". I am not sure there is another...
