I had an appointment with Sr. Hodes scheduled for 12/19. His office called this morning and abruptly cancelled our appointment and advised that he was going to be at the hospital that morning. The person then went on to tell me to call back after 1/15/2020 to schedule an appointment or I could just go ahead and schedule an appointment with someone else. Absolutely no help from his office staff. When the person first called she was speaking to me in Spanish, which I don't speak and after realizing this was talking to me in a way that was difficult to understand and had a complete I don't care attitude.

My family met Dr. Hodes on August 5th during a medical crises with my Dad. On August 7th, I can honestly say he’s one of the most caring, dedicated, knowledgeable doctors I have ever encountered. We are still working with him in crises, but I’m so impressed with him that I just had to share my appreciation for this man, (this doctor) who has given us hope!

broken ribs; etc. … Dr. Hodes and I never met. Dr. Hodes ordered imaging within the hour. He saw me at 5:00p.m., same day, with all imaging results. Stayed with me till 7pm. Followed up till I was good as new. And, he gave me a T#, to contact him day or night. I wish I had him now. I do not, because I've relocated south,

Best Doctor I have ever had! I have been a patient of Dr. Hodes for over 15 years. His office is clean and his staff are the most friendly, accommodating and caring staff you could find. Dr. Hodes is exceptionally caring, knowledgeable, and has a wonderful sense of humor. I've never had a doctor spend as much time with me as Dr. Hodes. He is genuine and one of a kind.
