There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr. Kauffman was wonderful. He gave me the information I needed to make a very important decision. He patiently listened to my concerns and questions and provided knowledgeable and thoughtful feedback.

I haven't. Left my home since the office visit. It was a terrable. The experience has shaken my trust I have in Geisinger
Oct 10, 2016
Didn't have any knowledge of what to do for my concern. Referred me to another department that has not contacted me for an appt. yet. This will be the 3rd department to see me for this.

He was very considerate and answered every question I had and asked repeatedly if I had any concerns. one of the nicest experiences I've had in a doctor's office I didn't feel rushed or pressured. I would recommend him to anyone!

Care provider did a fairly good job explaining my options although I wasn't ready to make a decision during this appmt. and voiced so. His response was "then I didn't do my job." This comment caught me by surprise what did that mean?

Dr. Kauffman was very thorough in explaining all the options available for breast reconstruction. He answered all of my questions and weighed the positive and negative aspects of all the procedures. He also explained the recovery time frame involved with both surgeries. I felt very comfortable during the consultation and am glad that my surgeon recommended Dr. Kauffman for my plastic surgery.
