Worst experience ever. Wasn't called by staff until one hour and 12 minutes past my scheduled time. Dr. Kaufmann was cold, arrogant and rude. Never introduced himself or even said hello. Minimized my injuries (a compound elbow fracture and bone chip) and had no regard for my pain.

Dr. Kaufman provided the best explanation and care and additional appointments that I need

September 24, 2019

I feel so fortunate to be able to be seen by Dr. Kaufman when I have an issues with my hands. I trust his judgment and skills completely. I particularly appreciate that even though he is a skilled surgeon he does not end each exam with a scheduling of surgery, but does take into account that surgery isn't always the answer and allows for the passage of time to see how matters progress before making the scalpel the only choice.

This is one of the best doctors I've ever had. He is smart, caring and a genuinely great person. I'd recommend him to anyone! He performed a wrist surgery on me a few years ago. It was a difficult surgery. I thought I broke my wrist a few days ago and I was added to his visit list, upon request.

all was good, i have no complants

September 23, 2019

My provider is excellent and very trust worthy

September 19, 2019

Dr. Kaufmann treats my thumb arthritis approximately 2x per year. During each visit he takes his time to explain my condition and the options for treatment. I am very happy with Dr. Kaufmann's plan for my treatment. I would most certainly recommend him to any of my family/friends/co-workers.

This is a team of total pros.

September 17, 2019

Dr Kaufmann is a great doctor - I would highly recommend him

September 10, 2019

Under the circumstances for which I am seeing Dr Kaufman I would say my experience has been good. requiring multiple surgeries is a bit scary but he and his entire staff made me feel safe and secure. Looking forward to recovering nicely.
