Jay H. Kaufman, DPM

Foot / Ankle


How did you become interested in medicine?

My younger brother whom is now an invasive cardiologist once suggested podiatric surgery and here I am!

What are common conditions you treat? Is there anything patients can do to avoid developing their conditions?

I treat most conditions of the foot and ankle but I have always enjoyed second opinions with revisional/corrective surgery.

What do you like best about working with your patients?

I simply enjoy making people better.

What do you like best about working for OAA?

I greatly enjoy being part of a team. OAA is a team that takes pride in providing excellent medical and surgical care.

How did you come to live in the Lehigh Valley?

I was originally from Wilkes-Barre, PA but had a private practice here in Allentown for 15 years before joining OAA.

If you were not a Foot and Ankle Surgeon, what would you be doing?

I don't know for sure but at times I feel as if politics would be a good fit.

Of what achievements are you especially proud?

I am particularly proud of my family. I would hope that I have and continue to be a good role model for my two children, showing integrity and consideration to others.
