My original appt was with Binder, Kaufman did my colonoscopy/endoscopy to diagnose celiac. Turns out I have celiac and not that I can't find out info online about how to deal with this lifelong disease that impacts daily consumption, but it might have been nice to have follow up of some kind. I called the office to request results citing issues with their portal, no one called me back. I could not get into portal for the information. I think I was a new patient when they had one system, but by the time I had the test, the office switched to another system. No one handed me a pamphlet about this life changer. I researched all of the info on my own, but why? Mustn't this practice diagnose celiacs weekly? I've also had vision/eye issues for months that have baffled my eye doctors after 4 appts and 4 trials of 4 different contact lenses. Turns out my mascara, primer, foundation, chapstick, shampoo, conditioner and gel all had gluten. Could these docs maybe mention this potential issue?!?!?

If I could I wouldn't give him any stars... never once looked me in the eye during my appointment.. never did an exam... he only revived old studies I have had done... he did a new study a few weeks later (well 2 procedures in 1) and the one procedure failed.. he lost the device in me so I had to have an emergency x ray.. as for the other procedure, he said I would need to see a hypnotist to fix my acid reflux!! A hypnotist!!!!!

My former doctor has retired from this practice and I saw Dr. Kaufman for the first time today because of a new problem. He had to do a procedure and was very professional and kind which helped to calm my anxiety. He explained everything he was doing and then gave me recommendations for follow up. He answered all my questions and did not seem rushed. I will see him again and liked his reassuring manner.

Not a good experience. Dr Kaufman walked into exam room, never introduced himself or made any eye contact during the visit. He made all decisions/recommendations based on health history form filled out prior to visit and never questioned me further. He wasn't going to do any physical exam until I questioned him regarding tenderness. I am a health care provider myself and found this visit totally unsatisfactory. This was my first GI visit ever with life-long bowel issues and very upset with visit

when discussing my particular situation and dr. Kauffman's study of my records he recommends the right procedures and regimens to follow. he is a tremendous help; a most knowledgeable and able physician easing your anxieties.

As a new patient, the basic level of care I would expect would be at least an introduction as the doctor walks in the door the first time. Having not even received that much, I should have been prepared for a less than favorable experience. Instead of asking me questions about my situation, he was reading questions from the computer and making assumptions without getting my feedback first. There is not enough space here to go into detail about just how bad this experience was.

I would recommend Dr Kaufman because he always makes time to answer questions when asked and I've had wonderful outcomes after a serious swallowing condition.
