Dr. Kauffman and the other staff were friendly and professional, and made me feel comfortable. The wait was a bit long, but I'm hoping it will be worth it in the end.

during my initial visit dr. Kaufman did not seem to have a very good bedside manner he was not rude however he was very quick and I felt like he did not spend enough time explaining things to me. dr. Kaufman did lumbar spinal fusion on me and I am very pleased with the results upon my second visit he seemed much more approachable and friendly.
