Dr. Kaufmann is the best doctor i have ever had in my life. If he practiced family medicine too then he would be the only doctor i would ever go to

extremely pleased with Dr. Kauffman!

I was in a lot of pain for almost two weeks after surgery before my staples were removed, plus I am allergic to iodine and codeine and they used a similar substance to put on me and I broke out in a rash.

Dr. Kaufman is a wonderful and careing physician to making the pt better . He is the BEST and I would recommend him to anyone

May 10, 2018

I would have liked to see the x-ray from the date of injury and then the date of appointment & had the doctor explain if my injury was healing or at least looking better or worse.

May 08, 2018

Of all the Dr offices this is by far the best staff top to bottom.

May 08, 2018

I like Dr. Kaufman and my experience with him at this visit was good.

May 03, 2018

The entire staff treated me with respect. In fact, I was given a lab coat to keep warm. I have only excellent opinions about UPMC Mercy Hospital. I would recommend it to everyone. I would be willing to be featured in your commercial in which the person stated, "I didn't choose to have a broken vertebra in my neck, but I did choose UPMC."
