  • FAQ
    • Q. How did you become interested in medicine?

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

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

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

      Q. What do you like best about working with your patients?

      A. I simply enjoy making people better.

      Q. What do you like best about working for OAA?

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

      Q. How did you come to live in the Lehigh Valley?

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

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

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

      Q. Of what achievements are you especially proud?

      A. 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.

Thanks to Jay H. Kaufman, D.P.M. I received another round to work and train with my children, as pain free as possible. I had my first visit with Dr. Kaufman and from the start he presented himself and OAA with the upmost interest for the patient and the recovery process. The standout was not recommending surgery up front till he knew all the facts about the injury I had and what methods were available to me as an option for therapy and when it was time for surgery. Once we went through the motions he sat us down and explained all the options and what was to be expected throughout the entire treatment. It was a confidence building relationship between the Doctor and patient that now allows me with confidence to take and refer family and friends to OAA and Dr. Kaufman's fellow colleagues and staff. First, thank you for the call backs from home when I had questions after the surgery and thank you for a new foothold on the road back and recovery.
