Zero personality or inflection in her voice at all. She was thorough but not engaging at all.

Dr. Kaufman has always been genuinely interested and compassionate during the years she's been my primary provider. She's attentive and thorough and knows how to ask the right questions when I've struggled to find the most accurate description of symptoms. With the various specialists I've needed to work with for my health issues, Dr. Kaufman helps me to understand and works with me on treatment options. Mostly, Dr. Kaufman sincerely cares, and that means everything to me as a patient.

Dr, Leistikow is an amazing Dr. She listens to what you have to say, is very caring and down to earth. She explains things to me in plain English and gives good direction as to what needs to be worked on. I always look forward to my appointments when I know I am going to see her. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is thorough and always direct and friendly.

Went in for a 2-day old newborn check and he barely spoke to me. My husband came as well and all the doctor’s questions were directed at him including breastfeeding. It was very odd. He was definitely kind with my newborn and you can tell he’s experienced BUT personality-wise it was not a good fit at all.

Really not impressed. She saw a referral in my chart from a PA to OBGYN regarding sterilization. Her first words were, “And What does your boyfriend think about this?” (Chart lists long time partner onboard). She mumbled into the computer regarding weaning me off a medication and never explained it to me, nor was it in the notes to the pharmacy. I had to call back to have a medication adjusted and provide them with some more information. It took over two weeks, an immense amount of calls, and her nurse said the doctor wanted me to gather the same data- stating I hadn’t done it yet. When I told her I had and that was what I had passed on at least five times prior she finally adjusted the medication. I had to see a specialist in November- turns out Kaufmann’s office was supposed to call and schedule me in a post procedure appt. I never heard from them again. It feels like she doesn’t even see me as a human being, or care to do her job. Sucks to have a chronic illness.

This is a doctor that listens. He made adjustments to my Rx that change my quality of life tremendously. I am making a comeback now and he is the leader of my team of providers. There is always time for me to cover my issues and get his input to help me make informed rational decisions about my health. I would recommend his services to anyone.

My mother had acute stomach and back pains when we first met Dr. Kaufmann. She listened and prescribed a blood test and anti-nausea pills and said it might be pancreatitis, but wasn't sure. That night she called and said my mother needed antibiotics and that more results would available later. The next morning around 7:30 Dr. Kaufmann called to say go to the E.R. It was pancreatitis so her gallbladder was removed. Dr. Kaufmann showed dedication and professionalism. Highly recommend her!

I am very happy with the surgery, left mastectomy, that Dr Flowers did. She is an amazing communicator. Perfect for Breast Cancer patients, with PS Dr. Lennard... Very respectful of my intelligence, listened, working together with her professional opinion and knowledge. I (we should have) had a clear choice to take ownership of my treatment. No heavy handed cookie cutter treatment here.Very present, fluid, flexible, skilled. And total understanding,acknowledging the shock, trauma, vulnerability

Dr. Molk replaced my left hip in May2017. He was a wonderful, compassionate man who also did a great job! I would have him perform surgery again if needed for some other aging body part.

I highly recommend Dr. Molk and his staff. I went in on a Wednesday with a ruptured quadricep tendon and he quickly got me into surgery two days later. On surgery day he spent time with me before and after surgery and kept me informed on my condition. For the last three months he has carefully monitored my progress and my physical therapy. He did prescribe opioids during the first few weeks of my recovery but made sure that I was weaned off of the prescriptions within the last month. Great doc!

Dr. Zachary Werle was extremely gentle and caring during the procedure done at First Care 8:am 5/22/2017, which involved caring for an infected sebaceous sist. He was very careful to make the incision as minimal as possible. No pain so far for the past 16 hours!

Dr. Werle treated my husband on a walk-in basis at TVC's First Care clinic. He was extremely thorough as well as kind and concerned. When he revealed not only pneumonia but also a condition that was frightening (but not emergent), I became quite upset (enough knowledge to be stupid but not enough to be wise). Dr. Werle was patient, compassionate and informative. Both my husband and I were extremely impressed as well as grateful.

I've seen Dr. Buffington for a host of issues as my primary care doctor. He is the best doctor I've ever seen. He's helped me to get off some medications, to start losing weight, and to understand the conditions I've had to deal with. I can communicate with him easily, he listens, and we discuss issues and medications and as a result my health has improved a lot. Dr. Buffington is a gem, and I trust him implicitly.
