About Nicholas W. Kaufman

Philosophy of care

My approach to health care is patient centric. I believe it is my job to serve you as my patient with integrity and honesty. I feel a particular sense of duty in making sure you are fully educated so that our approach most accurately reflects your own goals of care.

Why I entered medicine

Medicine has always been a passion of mine, starting with my time in emergency medical services (EMS) and continuing today. I greatly enjoy participating as a member of a team in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of my patients. I look forward to continuing to grow as a physician assistant (PA) and be a positive reflection for the Lehigh Valley community.

Community involvement

I've spent several years volunteering with an array of fire departments, including a year as a live-in with Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department outside Washington, D.C.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending my free time outdoors in all seasons. I am an avid fisher and hiker. When I'm not outdoors, I enjoy reading and the gym. Most importantly, I love to spend time with my wife, family and friends.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
