Terrific doctor; this guy was great. Instills confidence via his calm demeanor and professionalism. Patient and supportive office staff. Surgical team (Surgery Ctr of Des Moines) was excellent. Pre-procedure discussion and post-procedure de-brief were clear and helpful. I highly recommend him. rcjhku

I travel from western Iowa to get my procedures done here. Dr Kaufman genuinely cares and is very informative. Carmine, his assistant, is so friendly and makes you feel at ease. Love this place!

I have used Dr Kaufman in the past with no problem but this time he had me do 3 days of prep before my colonoscopy. It caused a rectal prolapse. My colon pushed out of my body and made a J. Impossible to have regular bowel movement, only tiny ones. I have terrible pain in the stomach, constant nausea, vomiting, and tremendous back pain. Metro prolapse surgery a few days ago. I now have to heal from that. Pain still severe so had a steroid injection in my tailbone. Have EGD next to stop pain
