What People Say About Dr. Allison Hoffman, MD
RecentHighestLowest
Reply
Dr. Hoffman has a very nice bed side manner; however, I have been to numerous dermatologists in the past to get pre cancerous spots frozen. I asked her to freeze a particular brown spot (that has been frozen before) and she told me that is considered "cosmetic" and it would cost me $50. That is nonsense, since I have had those types of spots frozen in the past and my insurance covers it. It is not cosmetic. Also, I had a rash on my forehead, that she did not know how to treat, so she said just to use an over the counter zinc bar, thank god for my family doctor who saw me a few days later and prescribed a cortisone cream. I don't believe Dr. Hoffman is very knowledgeable. She's nice, but I need doctors who know what they are doing and are not going to nickel-and-dime me.

Dr. Hoffman has been the first dermatologist that I've seen in over fifteen years that has taken the time to understand my acne in order to treat it properly. She is thorough, efficient, and very friendly! I highly recommend her to those of all ages and skin conditions.

Dr. Hoffman was able to quickly identify and suggest treatment for some skin issues that I have been dealing with for a while. Her office space is clean, modern, and easy to find. Office staff are helpful and friendly. I was easily able to make an appointment that worked with my busy schedule. Bedside manner of doc is A+++.

I've been using the services of Dr. Hoffman for several years now and find her to be thorough, helpful, attentive to questions, and very competent! I would highly recommend her services to any person in need of excellent dermatologic care. The office is conveniently located in the Medical Arts Building on the corner of Nicollet (mall) and 8th in downtown. You can enjoy some time in the mall after your appointment.
