Review of Dr. Jones


Dr. Jones was great to work with and provided excellent care and guidance. The other doctor I saw about my issue was chronically late and didn't have a good bedside manner. In contrast, Dr. Jones was on schedule, spent the time to answer my questions and provided a great experience pre and post opp. I would highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Kaufman

- in Lindenhurst, IL |

I have had knee replacement surgery on both knees with Dr. Kaufman and his team and they did an excellent job. In addition to performing excellent surgical work, Dr. Kaufman has his team prepare you for every phase of the process both pre and post operation. For me and my family, the results have meant a drastic improvement in our quality of life. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kaufman and his staff for their excellent work.

Review of Dr. Kaufman

Dr Kaufman is not only an excellent surgeon, but an extremely caring person. I had a post op complication and he went above and beyond expectations helping me. I would 100% recommend him to anyone needing knee replacement or revision surgery!

Review of Dr. Jones

-Spring Grove, IL |

My 13 year old son had a badly broken arm that required two surgeries and Dr. Jones was so patient with him and me and really took the time to make sure we understood what was happening and what to expect. He made a difficult situation a little bit better. We would highly recommend him and his staff.

Review of Dr. Kaufman

- in Naperville, IL |

I was referred to Dr. Kaufman for a painful left total knee arthroplasty by the Orthopedic surgery that performed the total knee arthroplasty in 2016. Dr. Kaufman diagnosed the problem and performed a revision left total knee arthroplasty. Since the revision the knee is free of pain. I am able to walk significantly better, ROM and Extension is greatly improved.

Review of Dr. Kaufman

- in Antioch, IL |

Dr. Kaufman saved me from certain crippling due to a broken left femur into 3 pieces. Don’t know how it happened but it did. I suspect from osteoporosis. It happened on 12/23 and I woke up 12/26. Never knew what happened to me. But after careful instructions from him, my recuperation has been slow but steady. At 81, I’ve really slowed down but.....I’m alive and doing some kicking. Marilyn E.

Review of Dr. Kaufman

- in Hawthorn Woods, IL |

I am 7 weeks out from hip replacement surgery and couldn't be happier with my results. I returned to work a very physical job where I am on my feet 8 hours a day and spend a large portion of my day lifting. I am so pleased with my surgery, Dr. Kaufman is a great surgeon and his bed side manner is outstanding. He listened to my concerns and I never felt rushed during appointments or my short hospital stay. My level of pain was minimal. I am very thankful and recommend Dr. Kaufman.

Review of Dr. Jones

- |

Dr. Jones performed my labral tear repair, cleaned up a lot of inflammation in my shoulder, performed a resection on my acromion and saw me through 6 months of post op physical therapy. His surgical expertise ensured that I retained full use of my shoulder, completely pain free a mere 7 months post op. I can't recommend him enough.
