This was the first time I saw Dr.Kaufmann. He was recommended to me after I hurt my hand after a fall. He was pleasant, caring and made sure I understood my x ray results.

Dr. Kaufmann was excellent. He really explained what was going on and my next steps if needed. He was kind and took time to listen.

Dr. Kaufmann is an excellent surgeon, however time management seems to be a problem for him. On the day of my surgery I was told to be at the Surgical Center at 11:30 AM, Dr. Kaufmann didn't show up until 1:45 PM and he had at least 5 patients waiting for him. IV's were started, anesthesia saw all the patients ( a couple of times, with apologies for the wait). Like I said he's excellent at what he does but doesn't seem to mind if everyone waits for him. Yesterday for my office appointment (at 8:15) I was still in the waiting room at 10:00 AM. This is not acceptable as my time is as valuable as his.

April 11, 2017

I appreciated the advice and care Dr. Kaufman gave me regarding my finger especially with regards to the healing time and conflicts with Raunauds and arthritis.
