really like Dr Kaufmann

August 23, 2018

Dr Kaufman was very knowledgeable and I like his approach to repairing my issue,

August 23, 2018

I was referred to Dr. Kaufmann by my orthopedic doctor because I have a broken ulna bone that was not healing properly and needed surgery. I was seen the next day to schedule surgery for the following day.

August 21, 2018

Excellent provider, willing to listen to me re: my active lifestyle. He set my limits to my activities while injured well.

August 21, 2018

My diagnosis was a very frequent one, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). Nevertheless, I was impressed by the ability of both the female resident who saw me and Dr. Kauffman to identify the ailment by asking where I was feeling pain and by applying pressure at key points on my arm confirm their diagnosis. No X-rays or technical instrumentation were necessary.

August 20, 2018

I am very happy with my care and will continue to go to this provider.
