Review of Dr. Kaufmann

-Pittsburgh, PA |

Would NEVER recommend! Gave improper treatment plan for a broken finger which delayed and harmed me, did not listen, runs out of room and gives you very little time, cocky, unprofessional, and I was physically hurt for no reason by him! I was then told by a professional who works with him that he does not care and inflicts pain on others unnecessarily! On top of it all, I waited 1 full hour at my appointment and the front desk staff were incredibly rude! Horrible office! Worst DR experience.

Review of Dr. Kaufmann

- in Sarver, PA |

I have had two surgeries for unrelated issues performed by Dr. Kaufmann in the last three months. The first was a ruptured distal biceps tendon in April. I initially backed out of the surgery, but Dr. Kaufmann called me to make sure I knew what I was doing. I'm so happy he did, as my arm is a good as new. I then had a lipoma removed from the other arm. I was concerned the wound was infected and emailed a photo on July 4. He got back to me that day to reassure me that it was fine. Great doctor!

Review of Dr. McLane

-Export |

Dr. McLane is the absolute best physician I have ever been to. Intelligent, great diagnostic skills and treatment planning. Her kind and positive disposition are just what all MD's should have. She will give you her time and knowledge as if you've known her your entire life. She's just a great MD and an all around wonderful person!

Review of Dr. Doperak

- in Greensburg |

I absolutely love Dr. Doperak. She's a very understanding doctor and takes time to talk with her patients. She sits down and actually has a conversation with her patients instead of the usual rush rush. And her staff (Erica) is the one I speak to the most are very professional and courteous.

Review of Dr. Kaufmann

-Pittsburgh, PA |

Not very empathic, gave me the impression that I was wating him time. Decided it was necessary to give me a speech about going to school to get a better job instead of focusing on my pain. Even went as far to say that he was expecting me to prove that I was applying to schools at my next followup. Never gave me a nerve test, and gave me no advice to improve my pain or mobility. He made me extremely uncomfortable and I will not be returning to him.

Review of Dr. Kaufmann

-Pittsburgh, PA |

Dr. Kaufmann operated on my right hand on March 17, 2017. I had two trigger fingers and he said I had carpal tunnel syndrome, although he never did a nerve conduction study. When I woke up after the surgery, I saw that he had done the index finger and not the ring finger. He essentially blamed me. Later that day he did the correct finger with local anesthesia. It was brutal. Never go to him. He is uncaring and not up-to-date with modern procedures.
