I cannot praise Dr. Kauffman enough. The care and courtesy he provided in my diagnosis & my surgery & post-op visit instilled confidence and reassurance.

The entire crew was very helpful and very efficient.

I felt the dr. listened, to my concerns & pain, caused by arthritis, in my fingers, & R hand..

Dr Kauffman was very thorough and evoked confidence in his diagnosis. He knew just what to look for and pursue. His recommendations for rehabilitation were conservative and not overly aggressive which is consistent with my desires.

Was seen by an Orthopedic doctor the day after I called, using the number given to me by the Physician's Assistant from Urgent Care which was unexpected an impressive. I did not know the name of the doctor I was going to see until I asked a health care provider. There was a delay in seeing the doctor but there was an announcement that the doctor was running late that morning. Both the Resident and the Doctor took time to explain my injury. I was very impressed that Dr. Kaufman took time to show me the X-Ray taken and explain my injury. I was delighted that he took into consideration how I needed to use my arm by taking off a big splint.

I love Dr Kaufmann

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.

August 08, 2016

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