I find the negative reviews quite surprising as I had a wonderful experience with her recently in urgent care. She saw me immediately, took the time to explain my pneumonia diagnosis and the medications she prescribed. To the extent, she even called the pharmacy for me to better understand the appropriate inhaler to prescribe that my insurance would cover to ensure I would not incur a large out of pocket cost. I felt she was friendly, patient and thorough that put me at ease.

This is a caring doctor. She's honest , smart and she has excellent listening skills and she studies you, because she is trying hard to hear what you left out or couldn't verablize. I love that ability because it's a gift that many people don't have . She needs to be cloned. I really like and truly appreciate her efforts in my behalf. This is my first time writing a review and I'm 70 But I had to express my thankfulness.

Do not go to this doctor. Gave her a chance because she was taking new patients and had some decent reviews but wish I hadn't. Dismissive, uncaring, bad overall experience. Wish her management staff would take note. Such negative experience, feel need to warn others as heath care is too important and expensive to not be away. As for the positive reviews, interesting they are all within the same few days..."Doctor of the Year" she is NOT.

I didn't have insurance so needed to wait until March when I would be covered by Medicare. She would not refill my rx. That's fine, but when I told her I couldn't afford another visit and blood work up until March she discharged me. I think she needs to work on her bedside manner if she wants to keep her patients. She hasn't any compassion she suggested I get insurance. I couldn't afford Obama care (I have asthma, diabetes, fibromyalgia so they wanted $350 a month) which I couldn't afford.

I admit i was skeptical of Dr. Kauffmann at first because she looks so young. After talking with her I saw that she knows what she is talking about and gave me good info about my condition. I went to her because my friend recommended her. She explained how she wants to treat my condition and I agreed. So far, so good.

Dr. Codispoti (Kauffmann) is great! After listening to my rather strange arthritis symptoms (I'm in my 20's) she explained possible causes and what she suspected it might be. After having bloodwork done, turns out she was right! I had a weird virus and finally had answers as to the cause of my pain! I also appreciate her not just prescribing pain pills and being done. She truly cares which is evident in her desire to determine the cause rather than masking it with medication.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Codispoti (formerly Kauffmann) to others. She is very professional, honest, and caring. I completely disagree with the poor reviews on this site, perhaps some people are overly sensitive and needy. I don't expect my doctor to be my best friend, but I do expect my doctor to provide me with the best health care possible, and Dr. Codispoti does exactly that.

Inexperienced with terrible bedside manner. Missed critical diagnosis. Found her to be rude, uncaring, and untrustworthy. Came down with horrible pain in my side. She brushed off my symptoms and spent less than 5 minutes with me, telling me nothing was wrong and dismissed my symptoms as illegitimate. Ended up in ER with severe appendicitis requiring immediate surgery. Followed up with her post surgery and she could have cared less and offered no compassion or treatment plan.

Agreed with the other reviews. Very uncaring and inexperience Doctor. Came in with some items to discuss and was told I would need to make a second appointment for a well visit to address any of the medical concerns I had. Also unethical and lied about treatment plan and requested another follow up. Would not reccomended this doctor to anyone. Less than one star is possible.

I had to see her because Dr.Seidt, was not in, which he is wonderful caring dr. She got in said hello, went straight to the computer, checked me in 30 seconds told me what I had, put the meds she was going to give me in the computer, told me it was fine to go back to work next day. Walked out. 2 minute visit. I'm still sick in bed with a fever. She was not rude but not nice. No connection whatsoever with the patient, Glad she is not my dr. I would never recommend her to anyone!

I went to Dr Kauffman because Dr Henriques was not available. She is very unversed in knowledge with my situation and she doesnt care. I went in for a visit for an extremely large and painful absess under my arm and she held my arm and pressed as hard as she could in thee most tender spot of the area. It knocked tears out of my eyes. She offered no tissue or explanation. She snickered at my questions about my health. A specialist scheduled surgery. There isn't space for all detailed encounters.

I found her to be rude, judgmental and uncaring. The first thing she said to me was that she wouldn't prescribe a medicine for flight anxiety because it is a controlled substance. I take maybe 20 of these pills a year. I'm not a junky. Flat out denying a patient a course of FDA approved treatment because of YOUR personal values w/o regard to their needs is unprofessional. Beyond that her bedside manner leaves loads to be desired. I don't trust her. I don't like her. I won't be going back.
