Dr. Lawrence M Kaufman has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Why Would A Crew Like This Serve Children??

I visited this office for the first time in my child's 1st year. The office is riddled with notices of what you can't do there and they enforce to the letter! Dr.Kaufman and the Staff were very arrogant, confrontational and completely apathetic. There was no regard to their patients needs. In a pediatric office that services children, parents are not allowed to dispose of a wet or soiled diaper in the restroom trash struck me as rediculous. I was sent out of the office to dispose of my child's wet diaper after asking to use the rest room to change him. It was January, snow and ice on the ground, and a mom having to carry her child out of the office through this narrow shotgun alley parking area, to a dumpster in the alley to dispose of it. Not even an outdoor trash bin could they service anywhere safely near the door of the office. When have you ever been in a pediatrics environment and met hostility in providing your child a diaper change? They were lazy not to simply service a trash bin but it was crystal clear that they couldn't care less about their patients. Dr. Kaufman was robotic and spoke an absolute minimum to both child and parent and displayed a disturbing lack of humanity or bed side manner. What a sad and dissapointing display they offered. Returned there nearly 4 years later to find the same apathetic disfunctional office environment with beautiful kids awaiting treatments by disengaged unhappy adults who seemed miserable in the world they have created in that office space. This isn't just about diaper changes. Schedule your child's appointment somewhere else the moment you experience such dissapointing consideration to patients and their families.
