Review for Dr. Hoffman

I find Dr Hoffman to be thorough in his treatment. He explains all issues to you and makes sure that you understand. He has a great bedside manner. I have been seeing Dr Hoffman for about 10 years now for all my orthopedic needs.

Review for Dr. Rogers

I went to see Dr. swing for a HRT consult. She took the time to explain what my options were, the pros and cons to those options. I felt like she listened to my concerns, answered my questions and came up with a plan for my next steps. I was seen on time, and the staff were great.
