Sending loving thoughts and prayers at this difficult time
I was Dr. Ginsburg’s 1st patient at Gateway Regional Medical Center. He not only freed me of pain, but saved my life by suggesting a surgery I needed. He was a great doctor and a friend.
Our sincerest condolences especially to my cousins and their precious children, Fred’s grandchildren, whom I know he loved dearly! Love to all of you!
Sorry for your loss
I am sorry for your loss and sending prayers and condolences 💐
My condolences to Kayla and her family. May God comfort you during this journey. Praying for you.
So very sorry for the loss of your father, Dr. Kauffman. You are all in my prayers during this difficult time. We are all thinking of you at Webster.
Our condolences to Jan, Mike, Kayla and their families. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
My heart breaks for your family! I had known Fred for many years as I also spent time practicing at Gateway Medical Center! I loved the lunches we had eating Mexican and other places often and talking about the Rams and the trips he was going to go on! He loved his wife, children, and grandchildren so much! I loved him sharing those recent photos of the grandkids! He was very supportive of helping me start my own practice as well and I will never forget that! We will miss him! RIP my friend!

My thoughts are with Ashley and her family in remembering a wonderful father who always enjoyed being around his family and grandchildren. It was evident that he supported his family and wished them only the best. He is remembered having a great smile and good conversation whenever we met as family. He will be greatly missed.

Fred was one of my closest friends. He had boundless enthusiasm. He was a very caring doctor. I will miss him greatly.
I hope that Dr. G received the same compassion and care that he provided to his patients and co-workers because he certainly deserved it. He will be remembered for those qualities. I will remember him as friendly and compassionate.
