August 16, 2016

if I have orthopedic needs I come to see dr. Kaufman , he is the only one I trust is this department. I wish there was another fixable reason for why my arms and joints are going bad, but I am pleased that he can help me anyway.

I was referred to Dr Kaufmann by my primary care physician and I had a very pleasant experience

August 02, 2016

Dr. Kaufmann is one of the best doctors in the field of orthopedics. I got from his visit ten times more than I got from another specialist in another town. Great doc and his resident was a knowledgeable surgeon and I wish this clinic the best of luck. Highly recommended.

GREAT CARE

July 28, 2016

Both the doctor and his hand fellow were knowledgable. I would recommend them.

July 21, 2016

Too many people are booked in the same time slot and the doctors assistant spends the most time with the patient. The meeting with the actually doctor was very short and felt rushed.

June 28, 2016

The team is excellent

June 28, 2016

Nursing and reception staff excellent. Dr. Kaufmann answered all of my questions and his treatment, (cortisone shot-2nd one), is giving me pain relief. He explained the shots and gave me an exercise to do. Excellent attention to this patient!

DR Robert Kaufmann has always treated me with respect and takes time to hear my concerns.
