Our greatest asset at Kaufman Plastic Surgery is the dedicated team of caring professionals who make up our staff. Through this cohesive group we deliver meticulous, gentle, and compassionate care to our patients and strive to exceed their expectations.
Meet our family at Kaufman Plastic Surgery. We understand that making the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is a big one, which is often associated with a little anxiety. We want you to feel warm and welcome, and will do anything we can to make you feel at home. From your first call, to your last post operative visit… we vow to treat you like you are part of our family!
My name is Kate... I am a nurse here and the better half of the fabulous Dr Kaufman! I was a critical care nurse for 15 years before we moved to the Sacramento area, but having three kids, I thought it was time to settle down a bit. I do a little bit of everything here, but you will most likely meet me during your consultation, or I will be your nurse in the operating room. We have an amazing staff that I am very proud of and would love to introduce you to each one of them personally.
Colleen is one of our fabulous OR nurses that you will meet on your big day. Nothing fazes Colleen because she use to work in the Emergency Department and has seen it all. She has lots of good stories to keep you entertained! Outside of our office, Colleen keeps busy with her two young kids and fire-fighting husband.
Julie is another one of our amazing OR nurses! Like all of our gals, Juli is also an ICU nurse when she is not with us and nothing phases her. Juli will make you feel great when you are prepping for your surgery and is a true believer in Better Nursing Through Pharmacology! At home Juli juggles her crazy family life and makes it all look so easy.
Katie is awesome. You will also meet Katie when you come for your surgery as she is one of our nurses in the OR. Katie has a great sense of humor (though she doesn't like to get up early...) and she will put all your fears at ease when you come in (especially after she starts your IV and gives you your cocktails!). You might even see Katie at one of your post op appointments as sometimes we drag her into the clinic when it is crazy. Outside of work Katie works as an ICU nurse... and loves spending time in the gym (she's ripped) and also enjoys the outdoors.
Lisa is another one of our fabulous OR nurses... Lisa is great with all of our patients, has a quirky sense of humor and will make your surgical experience a breeze. Lisa's a weirdo. She loves to get up EARLY and work LONG days! She is our "Go to Gal" when we need extra help. When not here making us laugh, she juggles two other jobs and is a dedicated mom and grandma.
Chris is also a new member to our OR team. He is a scrub tech with experience in the Plastic surgery world. Chris is very quiet (probably because he can't get a word in edge wise with all these women here). Outside of the office Chris enjoys working out, hanging out with friends, spending time with family and traveling around the world.
Donna is also a woman of many talents... she has been in the medical field for over 30 years and wears many different hats for us. When she is not helping me stay organized as our Administrative Assistant... she acts as one of our Patient Care Coordinators and one of our Medical Assistants. If you don't meet Donna during your consultation, you will meet her when you are recovering. Donna can really help walk you through your surgical experience with us from start to finish. When we occasionally give Donna the day off you can find her helping her husband with their 2 businesses', spending time with her 2 grown daughters, or donating her time to help needy animals (she is a sucker for our furry friends!).
... she is our amazing Esthetician. Maureen (or Mo as we call her) has over 25 years of experience making people beautiful. Mo is always up to date on the latest and greatest skin care and products. I love Mo because she is no-nonsense! She is never pushy and she loves to figure out what will work best for each person. She has a great relationship with her patients and really takes her time with everyone. Mo is super flexible and accommodating... and you will often find her coming in on her day off to do a Blue Peel or something for one of our surgical patients in the operating room. At home, Mo enjoys spending time with her Fire Chief husband and family and riding horses.
Kimberly is one of or Front Desk gals who you will meet when you first call. She has been with us since we moved to this area and has been a very dedicated employee. Kimberly will get you scheduled appropriately and make sure that you have all the information you need to educate yourself on the procedure(s) you are interested in. Kimberly still commutes to Stanford Hospital on the weekends to work in their ICU... and then back to El Dorado Hills during the week to work with us and be a mom to her two teenage kids. Talk about never getting a day off!
