I am also a patient of Dr. Kaufman's and have been seeing him for 9 months. I live in another state, saw him twice in person a month apart, have had a few phone appointments, and saw him again in person last week. I went to him with a detailed health history and extensive lab work. He took 24 tubes of blood the first time, after discussing my history and examining me. He honed in on my problems and has taken me through 3 phases of treatment which have greatly improved my functioning, and he has a plan for where I need to go. He has emailed labs for me to get done at home through LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics, including some exotic ones that were subcontracted out by LabCorp and Quest. He is excellent at ICD10 coding to get diagnostics and treatment covered by insurance. I believe I am on the way to recovering. The past 2 weeks, I've had the best days in the past 3 years, with active physical activity, and though I've had ups and downs, I've had continual forward progress. He is humble, thoughtful, curious, and open minded and is experienced enough to cover a lot of ground quickly. He reached out to some experts to consult about my case, which was helpful. The only area he's not as expert in, though he respects its role, is in nutrition. I have a functional medicine naturopathic doctor who has helped me greatly with that piece and have better care with the combination of both rather than just one or the other.
