This was my first visit so I don't have much experience with him but I was happy with my visit.

good experience

The office staff and Dr. Kauffman are wonderful and explain things in ways I understand. He took the time to explain everything and gave me informed choices. He was very helpful and considerate. Would definitely refer anyone to see him!

January 25, 2018

very pleased with this visit.

January 23, 2018

the doctor was good but I'm not sure he reviewed the MRI my child had done because he never referred to it. He was specific with her injury to her sport.

January 22, 2018

I was completely satisfied.

I felt comfortable and confident with having him do the upcoming carpal tunnel surgery.

January 18, 2018

We sat in the waiting room for almost an hour and then sat in the exam room for another 15 minutes. No respect for our time.

Very satisfied with my 1/9/18 visit to Dr Kaufmann concerning my carpel tunnel. He is going to fix it with surgery. He did my dads carpel tunnel 10 years ago and my dad hasn't had any problems since that's why I went to see him about mine.

Dr. Kaufman is an excellent physician. he not only knows his field but he understands how I feel about my care. he does not push one method of treatment above another. I trust him to do the correct procedures for me.
