Dr Hoeflinger and his staff did a excellent job for all my visits. He was confident about doing my surgery and having good results within 4 weeks of my l5 herniated disk. I feel 90 percent better and I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Hoeflinger repaired a herniated disc between L4 & L5 for me in 2008 and did a wonderful job. He will be repairing a second between L3 & L4 in a few short weeks. His staff is caring and Dr. Hoeflinger has always been very kind, diligent to make sure the issues I'm experiencing are taken care of as quickly as possible and always explains what is being done or needs to be done to correct my issues.

I was experiencing pain and numbness in my arms and hands as well as weakness. I tried therapy over the years and the last time I failed therapy. I saw Dr. Hoeflinger who did a multi level fusion on cervical spine.

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.
