I had my back surgery 5 months ago and I feel GREAT!! Staff has always been nice and took care of me.
Dr. Hoeflinger is one of the best surgeons I have ever met. He is caring, patient, listens, is compassionate, explains things in layman's terms, doesn't push for surgery unless it is absolutely necessary. I have had nothing but excellent results with my surgeries and have recommended him to several friends. I can't say enough good things about him. The staff is very caring and friendly, too.
