Having had to transfer from Allegheny Care to UPMC care because of Worker's comp., I wasn't sure what to expect but Dr. Kauffman was very understanding and professional. He explained the why and what for to every question that I had and there were many. Though my hand will never be the same, I am thankful for what he was my Doctor.

Dr. Kaufman looked me in the eye, listened, considered, explained, "normalized" my nervousness, and helped me feel more at ease about getting a steroid injection into my thumb joint. Friendly, professional, approachable, elicits trust. Top doc.
