Dr. Kauffman was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He took the time to explain all he planned to do as well as answer all my questions. His expertise in full knee replacement surgery as well as all aspects of making my recovery the best that it could be was beyond my expectations. I highly recommended Dr. Kaufman!

Dr. Kaufman is very good at what he does. He is taking care of my grandfather who needed a hip replacement. My grandfather who has been living with hip pain for like about 6 months had finally got his hip replacement . It took a little bit to have done because he was dealing with some other issue. Threw the 6 months of my grandfather needing the hip replacement his staff was very helpful from the PSR to the RN and MA everybody worked will together. Now it been three weeks since my grandfather got his hip replacement and he is healing very well. They provide class on what to expect and how to take care of your self after surgery. My grandfather doesn't speak English but Dr. Kaufman spoke Spanish well and that made my grandfather feel comfortable with him he also has staff that speaks Spanish which is great! Thank You Dr. Kaufman for being a nice caring doctor and also the staff for also being on top of things

Dr. Kaufman did an excellent job on my recent hip replacement after I experienced a catastrophic fall on the ice last January . I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery and the after care was excellent. Both Dr. Kaufman and his PA Karla were very approachable and patiently answered all my questions. They both definitely exceed expectations in my opinion

Minimal wait time, took an X-ray, showed us the X-ray, gave my daughter a boot to help her walk and she already started to walk upon leaving his office, pain has decreased with the boot. Staff was kind, polite and understanding. It was night and day comparing to Dr Hamming’s office which we saw yesterday.

Dr. Kaufman performed my hip replacement surgery. The surgery was not only a success but the scar left was very narrow and minimal. Dr. Kaufman explained the procedure in detail, answered all questions, was very caring and pleasant. Devoted as much time as I needed. I would recommend Dr. Kaufman to anyone I know that needed joint replacement surgery.

If you're an individual looking for a procedure to be performed by someone with the abilities to be performed flawlessly dr. Kaufman has that and a great bedside manner. You got to be sure that a doctor performing a procedure such as a hip replacement must not only have a good bedside manner but also have the disposition of greatness thank you thank you Doctor Kaufman for believing my wife when no one else would and to Karla Stewart thank you for the great needlework Melissa marcomb.

Dr. Kaufman is compassionate, benevolent and kindhearted. He takes care of his patients. If you need Total Knee Replacement see him and you will be up and running in no time. He is the Total Package. From Pre-op all the way to rehab.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

I saw Dr. Kaufman for a knee injury that lead to a knee replacement. He and his staff were always professional and courteous. He explained my treatment options, risks and rewards that came with each, and most importantly, listened to my wants and needs to achieve a quality of life I wanted. They effectively managed an insurance roadblock and maintained everything on schedule. The office always supported my needs and got back to me within the business day. I highly recommend Dr. Kaufman

Dr. Kaufman replaced my left knee in March 2018. It was a complicated case – a deformed leg with a metal rod and pins. Today my leg is straight. I have full range of motion, and no pain. I can walk without aids. I am even walking up and down stairs - something I haven't done in more than 5 years. This outstanding outcome is due to Dr. Kaufman's skill and expertise. He is patient, professional, compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Kaufman to anyone considering a knee replacement.
