Karen Kaufman, MD is a board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist who has been practicing in Boulder, Colorado since 2003. She graduated with her MD from Case Western Reserve School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio and completed her residency at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois.
While practicing in Boulder, Dr. Kaufman became aware that patients needed and wanted more than what they were receiving from traditional Western Medical healthcare. She observed that while some patients felt better with certain medications including bio-identical hormones, a large percentage continued to not feel “well” or had even more symptoms because underlying issues were not addressed. Through these observations she became passionate about functional, integrative medical care and incorporating more holistic approaches with patients. As a result, she pursued a fellowship in Functional Medicine and recently completed the final step in the FAAMFM (Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Metabolic and Functional Medicine) through the Metabolic Medical Institute.
Her current practice, Kaufman Health and Hormone Center reflects a personalized and comprehensive care model emphasizing the partnership between doctor and patient. Dr. Kaufman’s mission is to provide personalized and comprehensive health care to patients using both conventional medicine combined with her functional medicine training. Her focus is in adolescent gynecology, peri-menopause, menopause and hormone changes throughout every decade of life.
