I visited Dr. Hoffen a couple of months ago. After seeing him, I was not impressed. Upon reading his visit "summary", I found things stated that never happened, e.g., he "palpated" my abdomen and it was normal. Had he actually done that, he would have (maybe) notice the large protruding incisional hernia. He never touched me, even to shake my hand. He seemed frustrated by the medical records I furnished and was with me (maybe) a total of 5 minutes. I would not visit him again nor refer him.

Dr Hoffen shows very little regard for the care of his patients or coordinating care with the patients other providers. He and his staff have consistently failed to get records and diagnostic reports to assist him in providing proper treatment or diagnosis. He operates his office independent from healthcare organizations which should encourage him to put in extra effort to obtain records from other treating physicians. I will no longer continue to go see or allow him to fail at treating me
